    Got 2 of the 11 round (are they 12?) and ran them 5 times each no issues.

    Do the 7 round ETS mags work with the +1 Suarez baseplate for a total of 8 rounds in the flush/compact fit?

    Yes but you will need to shave tge sides of the retaining plate

    People have asked me if I consider myself a good or bad person. The truth of it is, I don't know or care. I have been called both. I like to think I have saved more lives than I have ended. Either way, I can still sleep at night.

    I've been working with a 7 rounder in my 43. Feeds every ball type I've put in it. Haven't found a single hollow point it likes.

    12 rounders A-OK

    EDITED TO ADD: I retract my previous endorsement. I worked some weak hand drills with the 12-rd ETS mag and found them NOT reliable with a less than firm hold.

    I got a 12 rounder to try with my 43 and it chokes every time, even with ball ammo. My 43 feeds everything 100% with standard Glock magazines, but is finicky with Glock mags with 1+ or 2+ extensions.
