RIA mag question

I finally purchased my first 1911, a RIA non rail tactical, and was wondering what would be the best 2nd magazine for it. The gun came with 1 ACT mag and I purchased a Kimber mag as well, but I am wondering if there is a better mag than the Kimber. From what I understand a good magazine makes all the difference. Any and all help is appreciated..

ACT makes a very good magazine, Chip McCormicks are great, as are the Wilsons. I would lean towards the Chip or the Wilson myself.

I love the followers in the ACT mags. The springs combined with the metal follower may treat the slide stop notch a bit hard, but that's just extra assurance for me. That being said I keep hearing problems about the top of the mags cracking after a few thousand rounds, but I never use just one mag at the range, so my mags never get that many rounds through them.

IIRC, the ACT mag guys use to work for Mecgar.
