Ruger .45 MAGs

I've gotta ask what may be a dumb question, but...anybody know why Ruger won't make a .45 pistol that'll accept 1911 mags...or, are they perhaps gonna so do?

I've thought about a 345...but, those folks that I work with who carry .45's all have 1911's and there would be no borrin' a guys mag if it was necessary...

Anyhow...I've always been curious about this...and if anyone knows the scoop, bet it'll be someone on the Forum...

Probably so they can sell more magazines! Same situation with the Mini 14 and the AR mags.
To be fair-neither do many other companies design magazines that will interchange with the competition---you can overcome that on duty by packaging 8 rounds in a ziploc bag-rubber banded in both directions-these can be thrown or handed to a buddy in need-and will not damage the magazine lips like throwing a full one might-even if he's lost his mag-with the 1911 he still has a single shot and ammo. I carried several paks and never needed one-better prepared than not, though.
