    Nice Curve ball you threw there!
    caught me off guard as I was looking for a fast ball.
    Ok so now to my knowledge Ruger only makes a commander and a government size 1911?
    so as they use the same length magazine why will his not work ?
    Now if you meant to say will not work in a Defender or Officers size 1911 thats true as the magazines for those would be to short to lock into place, but a Government magazine will (or should ) work in a Defender, officers size?
    the 9 MM magazines are actually 38 super magazines *they been chambering the 1911 in 38 Super for a loooong time, but anyway the 9 MM mag is a 38 Super mag with a spacer in the back to move the sissy 9 MM cartridge forward for better feeding.
    now if and when you get into all these exotic, new , better, greatest of all time variations from magazine manufactures then no telling what you may find, the feed lip etc may be a different design but the mag body size is the same.
    anyway, thats my story and I am sticking to it.

    If it shoots as good as it looks, it is a winner.

    Expand yer knowledge; Ruger has been offering an “Officer’s” model 1911 for right at a year now - maybe a tad longer.

    But my comments were more general. Mags used in Gov’t and Cmdr size 1911s are interchangeable; they can also be used in Officer model 1911. Officer model mags cannot be used in general “Commander” and “Gov’t” models.

    And these comments should hold regardless of caliber. I found out the hard way when I holstered up my Ruger Cmdr to carry and stuffed an extra mag in a pocket. Later that day I was practicing swapping mags in the car (WHILE PARKED) and couldn’t get the extra mag to set at all. Frustrating! Realized later that I had accidentally grabbed an extra mag for my Sig Ultra Compact 1911. They are both chromed with flush fitting chrome baseplates. The Commander mag holds 8 and the Sig mag holds 7. Side by side at a quick glance they look identical but the shorter mag just won’t catch in the mag release notch. Longer mags should seat in shorter grip frames as the mag release notch position is pretty standard - they’ll just look like extended mags. Don’t work the other way around - can’t get a short mag to catch in a long grip.

    Kinda like the old saying says: all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares . . .

    OK, but IF the Ruger Officers model is a tad longer then wouldn't it actually be a Commander????
    OR possibly a Non Commissioned Officers model?
    had no idea that they made an Officers model, course I aint much of a 1911 guy anyway!
