Triple K magazine for Colt 1903

I'm thinking of someday getting a Colt 1903 in .32 but am wondering about extra magazines. I know original mags are expensive and have heard really bad reviews about National mags for the 1903 but has anyone had any expierence with the Triple K brands or know of a good aftermarket brand to get extra mags for the 1903? Thanks.

I've never had very good success with Triple K magazines. Functioning has been spotty, at best.

They work, but the quality leaves a lot (emphasis on a LOT) to be desired. Expect a rather loose fit in the magazine well and the need to readjust the follower/feed lips when the magazine eventually stops locking the slide back/feeding smoothly.

I have several triple K mags for my Kahr 1911 and theyve worked flawlessly. No problems what so ever.

I have ordered several of the mags from Numrich for both my 1903 .32 and 1908 .380.
The .32 mags have to have a few thousanths of an inch filed/sanded from the bottom to get them to seat properly. Once that is done they have been 100%. The 380 mags are good to go as is.

I say buy them if they are cheap. A Colt 1903 is a range gun, not a carry gun . (I hope)
