    The guy on the phone indicated that 8 round govt mags in a the CS (Officer) forced the round up against the extractor with more force. Since I've only used factory mags and do not intend to use 8 round govt mags in the CS I just let the comment slide. If figure all of the magazine top side tolerances i.e. from the mag catch notch and up, are pretty much the same across the board for single stacks.

    Fiddlesticks. The 7- or 8-round Government magazines are the same from the mag catch up to the top as the 6- or 7- round Officers ("CS") magazines. The extra length is at the bottom end, not the top. The round in the magazine should not be touching the ejector at all -- it it makes contact with the ejector before or during feeding, there's something wrong with the magazine lips. I just looked at my carry pistol (a Colt Officers ACP). It has an extended ejector, and the top round in the magazine has very obvious and visible clearance between the case rim and the extended nose of the ejector.

    It's the extractor then, that the 8 round mags supposedly damage?

    Good quality extractors shouldn't break from any extra force on the top round of any type of magazine.

    In one post you wrote "ejector," in another you wrote "extractor." What did the guy at Armscor say?

    In either case, the statement makes no sense. It makes even less sense concerning the extractor, because the rounds in the magazine never contact the extractor in a way to could damage it. If you had a pistol with an elongated tip in the ejector (which my Colt Officers ACP does, and your Rock Island CS probably has), if you managed to OVERinseret a magazine (which could be done if you slammed home a Government-size magazine in an Officers-size pistol and managed to push it right past the magazine catch), the rim of the top round would make contact with the ejector tip. It would not make solid contact with the extractor, because the extractor is designed to allow the case rim to slide up into it.

    Ejector. My last post did state extractor in error. Yes, the CS does have the extended ejector. Since I only used the factory mag I expect the ejector was just a bad one.
