    Are you saying you have Wilson Combat mags with a dimpled follower and a welded base plate?

    I usually buy my CheckMate mags from Top Gun Supply https://www.topgunsupply.com/magazin...heck-mate.html

    Received your PM, shipping charges are what they are. We use FedEx or UPS (no USPS) so our charges may be higher than others using USPS. If you're a forum member I usually throw in something extra so it balances out at the end of the day. Give me a call if you have any questions! 631-491-1777

    Yes, they are stainless 7 round mags that look just like the Colt mags except Wilson Combat is on the base plate. The Wilson mags do not have a small "C" stamped on the bottom like the Colt mags.
    I bought them some years ago and don't remember the model number. Now, I cannot find them or any dimpled Wilson mag. I bought two Wilson mags with plastic followers. They work in my New Agent and Gold Cup but not the LW Commander.

    It sounds like you're looking for the Wilson Combat Service mags, which are "very similar" to our (check-mate ind.) CM45-7-S magazine.
    Shoot me a PM or give me a call and I can get you some

    I had forgotten about the Wilson Service mags.

    Even when they offered them, I always just considered them CheckMate mags, though the WilsonCombatRep would always point out the snazzy laser engraving on the baseplates of their version.
