Mec Gar for my SA in 9mm. Any other brand drops a round out if I remove the magazine to top off. I don't remember how many types I tried, but I tried several brands.

I use Wilson Combats exclusively in my 9mm 1911s so my first hand recommendation is WC... Make sure you don't purchase second hand -- the current gen 2 WC 9mm mags are the ones to have. The gen 1s have some problems. Just an FYI -- WC will swap out any gen 1 9mm WC mags for new gen 2 mags -- at least they did a year or so ago as I sent a few gen 1s in and got back gen 2s within a few days...

One thing -- I only have 9mm 1911s with integrally ramped barrels at this point. I had a Colt 9mm 1911 a few years ago without an integrally ramped barrel and literally couldn't get any of the several brands of mags I tried to work without stoppages. I tried them all -- gen 1 WC mags, Tripp, MecGar, MetalForm and CMC... Not saying they're not good, I just couldn't get them to work -- even with hardball...

Mec Gar 9mm mags work well in my Springfield, Dan Wesson, Rock Island, & MetroArms Classic Commander 1911's.
I have both black (blued ?) & nickle-plated Mec Gar mags. Haven't had an issue with any of them.
I like the shiny ones!

I have had good luck with Mec-Gar in my Range Officer Compact.
No failures to feed ever ...
Also have good luck from Wilson Combat but they cost considerably more.
