I wouldn't worry about collectibility on these mags. I bought some 10 years ago for $5 or $6 each. Same packaging, Checkmate I think. Still have a couple in the wrap but only because I haven't needed to use them. With 1911s potentially off the table I don't think demand will increase much. They are fine for range use.

I tried looking through the thread but some are very long.

Is anyone running these normally? While I know they are surplus given the 90s manufacture I doubt much collector value. I was debating grabbing a few to run on the range then maybe grabe a few more down the road to set aside.

Just want to make sure they are reliable.

I have shot them quite a bit in my frankencolt and frankenrand. Only one had a problem not holding open. I thought about buying 10 more just to keep on hand but haven't done it yet. As far as collector value, I highly doubt that they will have any but who knows. I never thought carbine mags would but I was wrong. LOL

I just want some as practice/range mags.

Im in the process of building a franken gun right now if I can get the funds together. The words Cheap and reliable dont usually apply to mags.

Newbie question here:
Will these work in my Remington 1911-R1? I've only used the two factory mags that came with it and it is the only 1911 that I've ever owned.
Thanks.

They will work in any standard 1911 frame.

These mags are identical to the mags you get when you buy a new Colt.

I ordered some, rec'd 'em today.
They were all wrapped in the ANOX paper and sealed [not vacuum poacked] in very light weight plastic bags.

They have a small address label size paper marked:

1005-00-550-8694
MAGAZINE ASSL’Y,
P/N: 5508694
DAAAO9-88-C-0144
1 EA. 1/10/89

Not nearly as well packed as the ones in the sealed brown paper back & wrapped in the aluminum paper.

I bought 10 last year, all came sealed in the brown paper. I just opened 1 the other day, unfolded the aluminum wrap, the magazine is in perfect/as-made deep blued condition. There's even still a few wet spots of some kind of oil or lube on the sides. They look too nice to use!
