Default best mags for 10mm 1911?

I've got a Kimber Eclipse Custom II chambered in 10mm. I need to order some additional mags. I don't want to order the Kimber mags because the one that came with the gun has been a bit finicky. I want to see if you guys have experience with some of the 10mm mags out there and can point me in the right direction.

Many brands seem to be backordered right now, however I have found some Wilson Combats available. The WC mags work great in my Kimber .45 1911s, but I have read mixed reviews about their performance in the 10mm, so I am leery to order those (I hate sending stuff back!)

Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated. Please include links if applicable.

I did some more homework online and read very positive reviews about the Tripp magazines performing really well in this particular 10mm. People kept using the term "best" mags for this gun, so I figured I'd give them a whirl. Just ordered a few in 9 round and 10 round capacities with upgraded alloy baseplates. They'd better be good because they sure as hell weren't cheap!!

10mms are proving to be an expensive habit.... but a damn fun round to throw downrange.

Not 100% sure on the mags, but the 10mm is longer than the .40 S&W round. I wouldn't try that.

You can feed a .40 out of a 10mm mag but not the other way around.
