The main selling point, for me, on these magazines is that they are designed to have a seven round capacity while still fitting flush in the firearm. At the range I was unable to fit seven rounds into either of the magazines.

How well did the iconic 1911 pistol do in trench warfare? Ian from Forgotten Weapons Youtuber cakes on the mud to see just how well a 1911 pistol can run.

Weapons used in the trenches had to battle lots of mud. With heavy mud fouling inside and outside firearms had a rough time staying in function. How did the iconic 1911 pistol do with heavy mud? Well Ian uses a Ballester Molina 1911 style pistol to try out an experiment with mud and pistol.
