USA -(Ammoland.com)- Wilson Combat is pleased to announce the acquisition of Chip McCormick Custom/Shooting Star Industries, a leading manufacturer of quality 1911 magazines and related products.

This purchase solidifies Wilson Combat as the quality brand leader in 1911 handgun magazines and related product development. The new company will be known as CMC/Shooting Star Industries during the transition.

“The CMC/Shooting Star line is a very important group of products within the 1911 industry and has a great history of innovation and success. Wilson Combat is committed to ensuring the broad availability and future development of more quality and innovative products under the Shooting Star banner for years to come.” said Bill Wilson, President and CEO Wilson Combat.

“Bill Wilson and I have been good friends, shooting competition competitors and friendly business competitors since the early 1980s. When I made the decision that I wanted to simplify my life and retire there was no one that I felt more comfortable selling the company to than Bill Wilson and Wilson Combat. With Ryan Wilson now running the daily operations of Wilson Combat and his son’s Josh and Hunter being interested in firearms, I’m confident Chip McCormick Custom will be in good hands well into the future.” said Chip McCormick, President and CEO Chip McCormick Custom, LLC.

CMC/Shooting Star will remain headquartered at its current location in Spicewood, TX while a new Shooting Star facility is built in Northeast, TX.

There will be no interruption of service from CMC/Shooting Star during the transition of business ownership. All orders for magazines and customer service will be handled at the current CMC/Shooting Star location listed below.

I hope they still make the CMC mag. I also liked it better than Wilso and better pricing. Guess I really need to keep care of my current collection.

Glad to learn the company will remain USA owned and operated by hard working American citizens.

While both companies’ magazines have excellent reputations, I prefer the McCormick mags without base pads to minimize printing for concealed carry.

Been ordering from Chip for 15+ years. Best and only mags I buy. Don’t screw it up Wilson.

I have all 3 brands of magazines and they all are excellent. I found the Shooting Star to be the least expensive. I hope the prices don’t go up.

Damn!
I like CM mags…a lot! I have had several Wilson accessories (mags, barrels, etc…) that have all had to be returned. I will never buy another Wilson part or accessory. (I am NOT saying that their pistols aren’t any good…though I’ll personally never know). I guess that I will just try and buy up a bunch of “old” stock CM mags.
