And lo and behold the experiment worked! :) Using two Wilson and one Novak .45acp magazine in my Delta Elite, flawless performance at the range yesterday, with a couple types of ammo. Loaded and fired each mag-full three or four times. Did some shooting strong/weak hand only too, and still couldn't induce malfunction.

What was the point of all this? Been having trouble finding 10mm magazines for my newly acquired Delta, and thought I'd give the ol' "necessity is the mother of invention" theory a try. Gonna keep trying this with different .45 mags from time to time, and will update y'all as soon as a failure occurs.

Oh, did I mention that the 8rd. .45 magazines hold 9 rounds of 10mm ammo?

Anybody else ever try this?

A good friend experimented with a 1911 in .40 caliber for a while. He simply could not get 100% reliability and finally sold it.

He noticed the guy he sold it to kept showing up at the range and never had a malfunction so he finally asked him what sort of magazine he found that gave that reliability.

The answer; none, the guy just used his Wilson .45 mags...lesson learned.
