OK, so a long time ago I was here asking about a 1911. I purchased a Kimber Raptor II way back then and a .22 conversion kit for it. The original magazine works 90% of the time, the second magazine does not always push the round up to the top of the mag, which then fails to feed. Good exercise in clearing a malfunction when out plinking, but I have now run into a serious issue. My son and daughter have joined the Scholastic Action Shooting Program and one of the classes is .22 pistol. So, I need to find 6 absolutely reliable magazines for them to use the pistol in competition. I see there are several out there, some metal and some polymer like the Kimber brand. I did pull the mags apart and cleaned them, did not use any lube or anything on them as I was told they should be dry. The original probably has 300 rounds through it and the newer one has maybe 200. I know it is the mag because you can see the round sitting low in the mag on a fail to feed. If you tap the mag pretty hard a couple times it helps, but not enough to be reliable in the competition.

So, anyone have advice on reliable mags for the .22 conversion?

Next year they will shoot in the 1911 class as well. For now just iron .22 rifle and iron .22 pistol.
