I have a Kahr-made AO. Nice pistol and these USGI mags run just fine in it. All things considered I might have liked the older Springfield GI model but it's not offered anymore.

I tested my ten with 200 rounds of mixed ammo. consisting of 230gr jhp, 185gr. Swc. And 230gr. Ball. They were right from the paper to my back yard and so far have had zero issues from my colt 1911.

Any functioning issues experienced? If and when the 1911s are released I will put in a chance for one. But have been looking at several 38, 45 and 9mm now.
If it helps I haven't had a single problem with CMP GI mags in my Colt 1991 or my Springfield MilSpec. I ordered 10 last year and just received my 10 for this year. I shoot FMJ RN and cast lead RN only though.
