I need a couple decent mags for my 357 Nightmare.

Free advice... I think my mecgar mags are better built than the Wilsons that were included with my Nightmare. The wilson feed lips/bodies flex when loaded past 6 rounds. Like the metal is too thin. Seems like could cause unnecessary issues, but I haven't had it to the range yet. Anyway, you may want to broaden your search parameters.


A Perpetual Disappointment...

I appreciate the advice. I'm pretty sure the mags that came with mine are not Wilson, and I'm not particularly crazy about them. I'm open to trying other brands. Thanks.

FWIW, wilson only makes one model of 40 cal mag, but I have been running .45 ETM's in my 40 1911 since I got it with no issues what so ever. I do occasionally squeeze the feedlips on the Wilsons (both ETM and 47d) if they show any signs of not dropping free. Seems to be an issue after repeatedly letting partially loaded mags hit a hard surface.

Tripp makes some quality 40/10mm mags.

I might be able to put my hands on some STI 40 mags for you by the end of the week, if you would have interest in those. They have a spacer in the back for factory 40, I load my 40 too long to work with them... so they are of no use to me.

Good to know. I have half a dozen or so .45 ETMs – I'll have to give them a shot.

Sure, my email is in my profile. Thanks!

I do load longer than factory, so ymmv. It can’t hurt to try though. I’ll email you when I figure out how many STI mags I have left. It is something between 1 & 3.

Just to update, I found one and it is rough condition. I will probably try to rip the spacer out of it and make it a dry fire mag. Sorry I couldn't come through for you.
