    Sad they quit making these mags

    I bought the last two of the vickers duty wc mags from brownells. Iíve used them since they came out and really liked them. Itís a bummer they spilt the sheets and wonít be making these anymore. They were really expensive but I liked them and had great luck with them.

    Wilson stopped selling all Vickers product. The drama was discussed adnauseum several weeks ago.


    Riots are like sports, it's better to watch it on TV at home.

    It seems like I bought some of those, but those baseplates look different. Maybe its just the picture.

    They had a low profile base plate option too. I used those in my carry guns.

    Perhaps in a bit they'll begin selling them again under a different name.

    I was hoping LAV had the rights and could find a new manufacturing partner; he's gonna need all the financial help he can get now that he's scheduled for Jackboot Passaround Party on top of his medical bills. (Let's be real... prison medical care, LOL. *Cancer* care on the inside? Fuggedaboutit...)

    They only have a sight hole in the back and one for the mag catch. Being sealed seemed to let a lot less debris in. The follower has scalloped edges to help it pass through any debris inside the magazine, allowing it to sluff off sand. The base plate is bigger and flared and easier to grab, whether removing from a magazine carrier out of it had became stuck in the weapon.

    But in my experience I never had one failure with them. I have a couple other Wilson mags, a chip mcormick, some kimbers and had a few other various ones at one point all of them gave me hiccups somewhere. Carrying a mag in my pocket, it usually ends up with lent in it, these donít because theyíre a more sealed design. Being more sealed seems to make them more rigid.

    Cool. I have like two mags and an old 1911. I've had Wilson mag fail and everything in between.
