Marlin Camp 45 Magazine Options

I've wanted one of the Marlin carbines for quite some time, finally found the right one at the right price and it's on it's way to me.

That has me thinking about extended capacity magazines.
I can't see a drum being a good idea, but what do I know?
There's a Korean made 28 round and a ProMag 40 round that I've seen, not sure what else is out there.
Maybe the 15 round stick mags?

Curious if anyone has any experience with any of the novelty type extended capacity magazines that are available out there for 1911s?

Stay away from the 15 rounders by Triple K. At least, the ones I bought several years ago were pure junk. I don't have experience with the others you mentioned. Metalform 10 rounders are excellent though.

Stay away from the Promag garbage, they cant make a mag to save their or your life. I bought one of their Glock mags many years ago and it was a total pos. It would start to puke rounds if you ejected the mag out of the weapon when fully loaded, super weak feed lips.

Mecgar and Wilson make good 8 &10 rounder's and would be worth a try, I just stick to the 8 rounder's in my Mectec 1911 upper.

I wouldn't look for bigger than the 10 rounders by Chip McCormick, Tripp Research or Wilson Combat. I have not found a larger capacity single stack tube that earned my trust. Considering the actual mass of a stack of single file 45ACP rounds plus all the friction points ... you may come to a similar conclusion.

I will confirm that the Tripp's, Chip's and Wilson's can run reliably. I keep a Tripp 10 rounder in each of my vehicles as I am too otherwise absorbed to be bothered by packing a second magazine on my body.

And I bet you enjoy that Camp Carbine more than you've anticipated.

Thank you all for the replies.
I've been gathering from reading that the 10 round magazines tend to be as good as it gets.
That is pretty much what I expected, but had to ask.
