Has anyone tried or know the quality of Butler Creek 1911 magazines made in Italy? I have a chance to buy 5 new but old stock of these Butler Creek Magazines. I have never heard of these magazines before I would like to know if anyone out there knows anything about them.

Those mags are made by "mec-gar" in italy. They make a lot of factory mags for many different companies & then brand those mags with the companies logo. For example they made magazines sold under the names:
Pachmyar, novak, etc.

"chip mccormick corporation" in spicewood, tx. Makes most of the mags sold in the usa & marks them with some of the biggest names in the high-end 1911 market---many you would instantly recognize if i put them in this email !!!!!

If the "bc" mag functions properly in your pistol, don't be too concerned with whose name or where it was made stamped on the magazine; if it works then it works !!!!!!
