Title: CZ RAMI2075 Magazine Base Pads (10 Round Magazines)
Post by: Raven45 on January 23, 2019, 09:54:05 PM
I own a CGW CZ2075 RAMI that I carry frequently in a right hand JMCK OWB holster.  I carry a spare 10-round magazine in a JMCK OWB single magazine carrier on my left side.

The backs of the magazine base pads on the OEM CZ 10-round magazines are almost razor sharp on the back (trailing edge) of the base pad.  As a result, this sharp surface badly abrades my skin at my waist line where this magazine is carried.

Is anyone aware of a replacement base pad for these magazines that might be less aggressive and easier to carry?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I've seen people sand down the OEM.

You may also do sided a magazine extension made from a Pearce extension by one of the forum members mjeter. It is somewhat smoother than the ONE piece.

Says SP-01 only. But I think they're mistaken? Most CZ mags are the same except the polymer series and 97, right?

Is this basically the XD mod? I didn't know they sold them premade, that's tempting.

Yes, CZ75 mags, including the Rami, can all take the same base pads. This one gives you a little more of an extension to rest your pinky and get a full grip.

The problem I had with the modded Pearce XD extension is that you have to file the top of the base down to get it to fit, which weakens the connection with the mag body, causing the base pad to pop off suddenly and dump all you ammo and mag innards on the floor. Not a good thing to happen in a fire fight.

Thanks very much for the feedback!  I especially appreciate the clarification regarding whether the aluminum base pad from CZ Custom will fit the RAMI 2075 magazine.  The description on the CZ Custom website specifically states that this base pad is for SP01 18-round magazines ONLY.

Stopped by CZ Custom this afternoon (it's about 25 minutes from my house), but they are closed this week while they attend the SHOT Show.  Will follow up next week to confirm these base pads will work with my RAMI magazines.

Those base pads work fine on my Rami, rock solid, aluminum and more durable and reliable than the modded plastic Pearce XD extension.

In fact, since I don't live in a slave state, I'm thinking about getting one of these, which is about the same length as the other, but adds 2 rounds of 9mm capacity to the mag.

If you search "magazine base pads" on the CZ Custom website, you'll find a lot of options.

I second these. He does a great job and gets them out quick. He had a long running thread somewhere on this site.

Went to CZ Custom in Mesa today and took my CZ OEM 10-round magazines and my RAMI 2075 with me.  (9mm)

Checked out these aluminum base pads:
https://czcustom.com/cz-75-flush-fitting-aluminium-base-pad-silver.html

They fit the CZ 10-round magazines fine.

However . . . . Once the base pads are installed,  the magazines WILL NOT seat in the RAMI 2075.  They are too tall to allow the magazines to seat.

What am I doing wrong?

Nothing. They are clearly marked for the SP-01 only.

They work fine for me. They insert, seat, feed and eject reliably.

Unless CZ Custom has changed their design, the one you tried is out of spec, or there's something wrong with your pistol (grip panels?) they should work.

Did CZ Custom suggest any alternative base pads?

I definitely have had problems with the modded Pearce XD extensions. They won't fit my pistol unless the top of the extension is filed down to the point that they're too weak to stay on the magazine and end up popping off and dumping the contents of the mag on the ground.

To Phylers 13:  I am clearly aware that they are marked for use with SP01 pistols ONLY.  However, as you can see, there is discussion within this forum noting that another forum member (MeatAxe) is successfully using the base pads on his CZ 2075 RAMI magazines.  I am asking for clarification in the event I have misunderstood input from MeatAxe.

To MeatAxe:  In response to your question . . . . CZ Custom allowed me to try a couple of other base pads they had in stock, but while they would install on the magazines, the fit was not proper. 

Stuart:  In the event you might be monitoring this conversations, do you have any input or suggestions?

You might contact Stuart directly. As you can see from my picture, mine works fine, but I bought it 3 or 4 years ago, so CZ Custom might have changed the design -- or whoever you met with over there might have handed you the wrong base pads.

RE: the "SP01 Only" text on the website, these base pads were designed primarily for competition use. I'm not real familiar with the competitions (IDPA, IPSC, etc.) but I believe in some classes, your pistol has to fit inside a certain-sized physical box in order to qualify for competition. It may be that these particular base pads are the maximum size that will fit inside the qualifying box on a SP01. There was also some verbiage on the website that these base pads are made to use in conjunction with CZ Custom's magazine well for the SP01. Just a thought.

I will get with Stuart personally when I am able.  I really appreciate all your help, MeatAxe! 

In the meantime . . . . the tritium vial in the front sight on my RAMI launched to parts unknown, so the slide is on it's way to Cajun Gun Works for a front sight replacement! 

I'll follow up on the magazine base pads while I have "1/2 a gun" in my possession!

The Meprolite night sights that CZ equips the Rami with truly suck balls.

CZ Custom sells Trijicon replacements, maybe CGW does, too.

I've never had any problems with Trijicon night sights, but I have a pile of dead, mashed and broken Meprolites from various pistols, including the Rami.

The BD has better sights than the B. Are they both mepro?

The sights on my RAMI are Trijicon sights installed by Cajun Gun Works when they built the pistol.  (New RAMI 2075, the front and rear sight, and a full Pro Package).  My comment about the failure of the tritium vial in the front sight is in no way meant to reflect negatively on either the sight or CGW. 

Stuff happens . . .  CGW is taking care of the problem.

Huh...are your night sights made by Trijicon or Dawson Precision, like the ones listed on CGW's website?

https://cajungunworks.com/product/72075-dawson-precision-tritium-night-sights-rami/

The Trijicon sights on the CZ Custom website appear to be manufactured in-house with Trijicon vials.

https://czcustom.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?ajaxcatalog=true&cat=&&q=Rami+2075

Of course, the Rami front sight uses a Novak dove tail, so you should be able to use any Novak-cut front sight.

I stand corrected.  The sights that Cajun Gun Works installed on my RAMI 2075 when they built it are made by Dawson Precision, as shown here:

https://cajungunworks.com/product/72075-dawson-precision-tritium-night-sights-rami/

The tritium vial in the front sight came out of the sight.  I am sending the slide back to CGW to have the front sight replaced. 

David has advised that he will ensure the work is completed quickly for a quick turn-around.  I have no doubts that is what will happen.

Not certain if anyone is still interested in this post, and it's original intent.  However, wanted to report that my question has been answered and the issue resolved.  I was able to speak directly with Stuart at CZ Custom yesterday, and using the photo previously supplied so generously by MeatAxe on this forum, we were able to get on the same page for what I was looking for in the way of a base pad for the CZ 10-round magazines for use in my RAMI 2075.

To remind readers of the original issue:  When carrying (concealed) a spare CZ 10-round magazine in a single magazine OWB carrier in conjunction with the concealed carry of my RAMI 2075, the almost razor sharp edge of OEM 10-round magazine badly scraped/poked me in the side to the point of being unacceptable.  I wanted an alternative base pad to be installed on the spare magazine that would alleviate this problem and still fit in the pistol when needed.

MeatAxe provided me information about the CZ Custom #30093 base pad, and suggested it as a solution.  Long story short, I ended up purchasing the same exact base bad, but it was Part #30090.  The #30093 base pad has a brushed aluminum finish, and the #30090 base pad had an anodized blue finish.  No other differences. 

Problem solved, thanks to Stuart and MeatAxe.  Your guidance and assistance are much appreciated - Thanks!  :)

Hi,

New member here. Great forum. Used a lot of the information here to purchase my CZ 2075 (safety version) and add a couple of upgrades from CGW (RRK & tritium sights). I have a question about the specific CZC base pad you purchased. I have the Pierce grip extension and it is OK.  Does anyone knows how the CZC base pad compares to the modified Pierce grip extension in terms of length? Meaning, can I get an equal purchase on either of them?

Thanks in advance for any feedback!!

The CZ Custom aluminum pad referred to above is @ 10mm tall, which in my hands is plenty of room to rest my pinky comfortably.

The modified Pearce XD extension is @ 23mm tall (that was after I had to file @ 1.5mm of material off the top of the extension to get it to seat in the Rami mag well.

However, the factory Rami grip sleeve and floor plate installed on a standard 14rd CZ75 magazine is only @ 26mm tall, which is by far the most comfortable ergonomical (and with 4 extra rounds capacity) and easier to unload and reload.

So, I really don't see the point of the modified Pearce floor plate, especially since it's liable to pop off and dump your mag contents on the ground.

MeatAxe: would you please specify by part numbers the full set-up of this magazine, grip sleeve and base pad.

It all seems to be confusing. I think that when you talk about the standard 14 rd CZ magazine - you are talking about CZ 75 compact? 

Then I am not sure what grip sleeve fits with that - would it be CZ RAMI 14 rounder grip sleeve ?

And, finally - all that is topped (or rather bottomed) by CZ custom 30090 base pad ? Is that correct ?

I apologize for my confusion, but a lot of shortcut terminology come here to play and they do not always mean the same thing.

Thanks in advance
