These magazines should work ? Please let me know before I bid.

Thanks Dave

Just double checking before bidding. Only 6 round mags for ECO will not fit ? I left seller a message and no 

reply ?? He said in ad, he bought for a DW and they did not fit ? I asked what model they did not fit and what

do they fit. Don’t want to get stuck w/wrong mags. No offence Stinger,but I would like another opinion also. confused

Went to a Colt 1911 forum and they have a whole section on DWs laughing

And pop ups, ads, Video ads, what a pain in the rear, dwf RULES!! occasion

Thanks again, Dave

6-rd mags for compact frame.

7 & 8-rd mags for full size frames.

Google around, it should be easy to confirm for yourself.

On the PM-7 I mine liked Chip McCormick mags, Metalform and Checkmate’s.  All worked well.  

Anything worth doing is worth doing well.

Bobtail frames have a rounded bottom at the backstrap for conceal purposes. Bobtails can be either full size frames or compact and require the correct length magazine.  Shorter mags (6-rd.) are for the compact “Officers” style frame only.

I think these are 7 rd mags for a compact model, 6-7 conversion.

I have till 5-31 to send back and lose $7.00 shipping because seller

lied or just did not know mad and I asked him before hand !!

Before I send them back will put on “for sale or trade”,  will sell or trade for

right ones for what I got in em. Blue one fits, came w/gun, I have 2 ss mags 

that don’t, like new.
