Ruger 1911 magazines = Checkmate?

In California we cannot buy the Ruger SR1911, but I figured what the heck, at least I can buy Ruger magazines for my other 1911s. So I did.

Examining the Ruger magazines, they look identical, and I do mean identical, to the "Checkmate" magazines that my Dan Wesson came with. Are the Ruger 8 round 1911 magazines relabeled Checkmate mags?

By the way, they function perfectly. No issues there. Fit and finish are excellent. Just curious.

I haven't physically compared the Ruger mags to checkmate but compared them from pictures and I feel that checkmate makes the mags for Ruger. They don't say checkmate on them but again I am still confident they are. Have a Ruger day.

Yea, I think I had read on this forum or the other... that the SR1911 mags are from Checkmate. I have had good luck with MecGar and Wilson Combat 47Ds for my other 1911, my SIG 1911 XO. I will have to try them out on the SR1911.

YMMV.
