In reality, it doesn’t matter how terrific your 1911 handgun is or how fancy your defensive ammo is if your magazine won’t feed. Trusting your life to a substandard magazine is like trying to drive the Indy 500 on four spare tires. It's for that reason that Ed Brown Products recently introduced its Ed Brown 1911 Magazine Exchange Program.

This new program gives 1911 fans the opportunity to try out the last 1911 magazine they’ll ever own—a $22 to $30 value—by sending in older 1911 mags, plus $10-$15, depending on which Ed Brown 1911 magazine they’ve selected.

The process is simple: Just visit the exchange page on Ed Brown's website and print out the appropriate form. On it, you can choose between Ed Brown’s traditional stainless steel magazines ($10) and its Black Nitride version ($15). Your next step is to visit your drawer full of dented, dirty 1911 magazines and pick the ones you like the least, then mail them to Ed Brown Products along with the form. At that point, the company will send magazines with a lifetime warranty and best-in-class technology.

Ed Brown magazines feature top-quality materials, construction, and design, as well as a patented follower design made from heat-treated steel (not cheap plastic), with an extended front skirt, and an anti-friction finish. This ensures proper feeding and full engagement of the slide stop on the last round. The maximum tensile strength heavy-duty spring provides a longer lasting spring life, with the proper up-force to ensure reliable feeding and slide stop operation. Furthermore, Ed Brown’s 3-in-1 configuration allows you to choose the best bumper pad solution to fit your needs.

“Building custom handguns for over 50 years has taught us what it takes to make a quality magazine,” says Ed Brown Marketing Director John May. “With a patented steel follower, industry leading spring, and a stainless no-fail tube design, we’re confident our magazines will last you a lifetime and keep your 1911 running optimally.”
