Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: Radom on October 17, 2002, 07:06:48 PM
Dear Folks:

I offered to do this some time ago, but I never followed up on it.  I am trying to build a Magazine Compatibility Master List for the Pistols FAQ.  This means that I need everyones input on which magazines work with which pistols.  I am going to post this thread on all of the relevant forums, so that as many people as possible see it.  For my own convenience as editor, it would help me if as many people as possible posted their answers at the Clone Forum, rather than all of the individual forums.  I apologize to the other moderators in advance if this is a problem.  Answers do not have to be in this format or anything, but I will start the ball rolling for the purposes of clarification.

The 97B uses the same magazines as the full-size .45 Witness.  They are not identical to Tanfoglio OEM magazines, but no fitting is necessary.

Thank you for your support.

Baby Eagle magazines in the full size will fit and function in all other Tanfoglio pistols. Compact BE mags will not due to mag bumper size. Some occaisonal Tan mags will not hold back last round in a BE due to a swelling at the slide catch stop on the BE follower not being present in older Tan hicap mags.
   Tan 12 round 40 and 40/41 mags will fit and feed dummy rounds in a CZ75
   Tan full size prebans will NOT work correctly in the Compact model, at least the two I tried.
   The Jericho 941, Baby Eagle, Tanfoglio TZ75, FIE/EXCAM TA90, and Springfield P9 are all made by Tanfoglio, and Tan mags should work in all of them, with the minor differances listed above.
   Is this what you wanted?

Dave, yep.  The message wasn't as clear as I thought.  (I never specifically mentioned CZ/Tanfoglio/IMI etc.)  I thought that we could just have a "sticky" in Pistols FAQ, and save the mods some trouble.  

Any compatibility between CZ and clones (and some others that aren't true clones, like some of the Sphinx models) are what I am looking for.  Thanks to all participants so far (and in the future).

I use CZ factory 15 round mags (9mm) in my Sphinx AT2000 Police Special.  The follower in my CZ mags are different than the follower in the Sphinx mags.  Because of this the CZ mags do not lock the slide open.  You can cut the CZ followers to match the Sphinx follwer notch and then they'll lock the slide open but it is somewhat of an ordeal.  I merely took out my Sphinx followers from the original Sphinx mags (didn't want to use my original Sphinx mag tubes) and put them in the CZ 15 round mags and everything works 100%.  Since the Police Special has the fullsize grip they also fit flush.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone else have a Sphinx?  Just curious.

So does this mean since the CZ85 is derived from the CZ75 that baby eagel, and Witness mags will work in it also?

Does any one have a CZ85 I am interested in purchasing one instead of the CZ75 because I am left handed.
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: Radom on October 25, 2002, 11:30:39 AM
That was my impression.  I only have CZs (no clones), and none of them are 85 series (I am right-handed).  CZ literature usually refers to the "75/85 series," so I feel pretty confident saying yes, they would work.  Most of the basic parts are identical.  The 85 Combat Club would be a good place to get some clarification.

Post by: Walt-Sherrill on October 25, 2002, 01:08:31 PM
WHOA!  A CZ-85 (without the B) and a CZ-75 (without the B) will not accept most CLONE magazines.

If you've got a CZ-85 (and not a newer CZ-85B), don't waste your money on anything but CZ factory mags.  

Even the newer Mec-Gar mags won't work.  (I speak from experience, having had a CZ-75B, now a CZ-75 and a CZ-85 Combat.)

I have a bunch of Baby Eagle mags that work beautifully in my CZ-85 Combat and in 75Bs, but won't even go more than halfway into the grip of a pre-B 75...
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: Radom on October 25, 2002, 01:41:42 PM
Sorry about that guys.  I assumed we were discussing an 85B.  Pre-B 85s aren't too common.  

Just to further cloud the issue, a "transitional" 75 (75 slide on 75B frame) has a 75B grip frame, so I never had this problem.  I forget about the difference.

Walt, are there "transitional" 85s?
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: Walt-Sherrill on October 25, 2002, 04:28:37 PM
Transitional 85s?  Darned if I know.  

I'll bet there are -- as the transition was apparently a  production line change.  

Any 85s made during that period probably have the same "transitional" characteristics as the 75s.

Yes I was talking about a CZ-85B sorry for being unclear.  Thanks for the help, now I am for sure going to purchase an 85B I ran across 4 hi-cap mags cheap so I picked them up and now I only need the gun to go with them.

My friend was showing me his Witness in 9mm (.40 conversion slide and barrel used on this frame) and right above the trigger the frame is cracked it is about the with of a hair and extends about .25-.4 of an inch has any one had this problem is it serious?  He is trying to avoid sending it to the factory but what should I advise him?

If your friend is the original owner, he should call EAA about it and send the pistol to EAA.  They just might send him a new replacement pistol or weld up the frame(a tricky business). (The welding and refinishing cost alone would be worth letting them fix it!) If he decides to have someone else try to fix it, find an expert welder who knows what he is doing! The frame will then need to be refinished!

Back to the subject of Magazines.  The Early Tanfoglio pistols built on the pre series 88 frames will use CZ75 magazines and only those magazines will interchange.  The later magazines built for the series 88 frames do not work (or fit) in the earlier Tan pistols or the CZ75/85.

A friend recently bought a full-size polymer Witness in 9mm that came with 2 10-rounders.  As near as we can tell, the 10 round CZ factory mags are completely interchangeable with the 10 round mags that came with the Tangfolio.  We haven't done any function testing (shooting) yet but both types of mags allow the slide to lock open when manually retracted, regardless of gun.  The polymer Witness WILL NOT accept CZ 15 round mags.
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: ScottB on October 30, 2002, 09:20:42 PM
I posted about this in detail, but I'll add to this sticky:

Full-size 10mm mags will fit the compact, and if you use the spacer for the full-size 45 polymer frame mags, they make it fit your hand like a glove. For large hands, it almost turns the compact into a tactical, but even more ergonomically.

No doubt this would work with 45s as well.

Oh, yeah, it was a lot of trouble alright, LOL!

I did get a couple offers for $300 for the 10mm compact. I'm betting markup on NIB is now close to $400 for these. That's good, and bad.

The CZ40B mag (.40S&W) seemed to fit in my Witness Compact .40 S&W.  I haven't fired it, but it snapped in perfectly and I racked several rounds manually with no problem.  It was a little long, but there might be a spacer available.  Of course, it's only one extra round, so it's an individual call as to whether it's worth the trouble.

The 41AE 12rd Hi-cap for the full-sze small-frame will function just fine in the compact 40S&W.

Also, the regular 40 mags fit and function just fine if you are going to convert to a 40 from a 9.

FEG,

Just getting around to this thread so sorry if I jump in late.  Just making a deal to buy a 97B and got to wondering about magazines when I saw this.  And you may have already answered my question.  Do I read your statement correctly?  The EAA Witness .45 magazines work in the 97B?  I see on the Mec-Gar sight that they have mags for the Witness and if this is true I intend on getting some.

Thanx....

The Factory EAA WItness mags will work, but for a few bucks more, get the Mec-Gar mags for the EAA Witness.  (My Witness .45 came with factory-delivered Mec-Gar mags.)

They are interchangeable with CZ-97B mags.
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: Unregistered(d) on December 14, 2002, 10:15:05 PM
This concerns a CZ-85B 9mm and an EAA Witness PC 9mm.

The factory CZ 9mm 15-round mags feed everything in both.

The factory EAA 16-round mags feed everything in both.

The factory EAA 13-round compact mags only fit the Witness, and feed everything, but have a problem with coming apart (the base plate falls off, the spring goes flying, etc.) if you drop them.

The Pro-Mags (14-15 rounds) feed everything in the CZ-85B and FMJ only in the Witness.

USA 14 round mags feed only FMJ in the CZ, and will not feed in the Witness.

Misc. after-market 20, 25, and 30 round mags feed only FMJ in the CZ-85B and will not feed in the Witness.

Adding an extended-capacity base plate (even with the addition of a Wolff +10% spring) will decrease the reliability of anything.

What's going on?  I was told by Mec-Gar that it's a different mag catch location.  I was told by CZ-USA it probably could fit.  I was told by many yes it will fit and by others that the Witness .45 and the CZ 97B do indeed have slightly different mag. catch location....one is higher up than the other.

Post by: edefonzo on January 23, 2003, 03:40:07 PM
Sorry for the late posting, if anybody's still following this thread.

I have a CZ75B in .40 S&W, which came with 2 Mec-Gar 10 round mags from the factory. Of course, they function flawlessly.

Recently I purchased 2 10 round mags from a dealer who promised CZ factory mags and sent EAA Witness mags. They also functioned flawlessly. However, they don't slide into the CZ75B mag well as easily, hanging up a little in the area of the mag release. A little jiggle and they go in. The followers are of different design, but both types hold open the slide after the last round. The Witness mags extend ever so slightly, being about 1/8" longer than the Mec-Gar mags, and have slightly bulkier butt plates.

I've read a lot of feedback in the forum about using Witness mags in the CZ75B, with some saying that the Witness mags need a little alteration around the mag release slot because the slots are positioned a little differently. That may be the case, but my Witness mags needed no additional fitting at all to function. I don't own a Witness, so I don't know if the reverse would be true.

Good Luck with your list.

ED

I have heard that TZ75 mags fit a CZ75, but at the last gun show a guy had something he claimed was a TZ75 mag, that definately did not fit a CZ75. I have been woundering, but it just hit high gear since I found an advertisement for 25 round TZ75 mags at $22 each (min, order 3,) plus $9 S/H.
I'm taking a $75 gamble when I get my next paycheck, unless I get more information here. Has anyone tried a TZ75 mag in a CZ or Witness.

I recently purchased several (seven) stainless steel 9mm mags, Ramline brand, for my standard Witness and my brother's TZ75. They fit and feed fine in my Witness, however do not lock the slide back after the last round is fired (the follower is different). They don't even fit into the TZ75. Some differences do exist in these clone pistols that restrict magazine interchangeability. But at only $4.95 each new, I'm not at much of a loss!
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: verbaltharhino on January 31, 2003, 07:12:50 AM
If this helps you out, any on the TZ-75-

I was looking at a used one at a local gun shop for $250, not a bad deal, right?  Well, the mag in the gun was EXACTLY the same as my stepped-base 15-rd. CZ mag (I had them side-by side) that came with my CZ.  Neither mag locked the slide open.  I took it for granted that maybe it was the pistol and not the mags causing this (I ended up not buying for that reason alone).  After reading this thread, maybe it was the mags!  The mags (both) fit into the mag well just fine, though.

Post by: jwc007 on February 04, 2003, 02:56:32 PM
Your brothers TZ-75 has the older Tanfoglio Frame that was more of a copy of the CZ-75, with the exception of the safety system.  CZ-75 magazines should work just fine, as I have been using Israeli made CZ-75 magazines in mine.

As for your Witness, it's frame is made from the series-88 design.  Tanfoglio beefed up the design at this time to take the pounding of the .41 AE and later the .40 S&W.  It is a slightly larger frame, as you have probably observed.  There were other design changes that occurred at this time.

Aftermarket magazine manufacturers tended to get confused about these pistols.

Just recieved a shipment of magazines today from CDNN.  These were 10 rounders I intend to use for "Production" class IPSC shooting.  These are aftermarket Pro-Mags and the package was marked for EAA Witness and Baby Eagle.  They fit and feed (dry test feed) in my series 88 TA90 perfectly.  Going to the range tonight to try them out.  They also drop free from the gun, quickly!

Update: Over 3 courses of fire, no FTF's, and reloads went smoothly.  I think I have some winners here.  At $8.99 apiece, not to bad on the budget, either.  Can afford to bang these around for competition.  Now I need mag bumper pads for them.

To be honest, I have no idea.  Don't be shy, magazine issues have been on hold for some time, because I have been collecting data.  This project is WAY more complicated than I thought it would be.  For example, I thought that Springfield never issued any 10 rounders as OEM.

Well, I have good news and bad news.

I have started getting this posted at Pistols FAQ.  The good news is that I have at least started.  I'm not done, but I don't think it all COULD fit in one post, due to ezboard limits.

Here's a link:
pub105.ezboard.com/fczech...=113.topic (http://pub105.ezboard.com/fczechpistols82792frm25.showMessage?topicID=113.topic)

The bad news is that I am doing CZs and Clones as two separate threads, and I started with CZs.  

My thinking is that someone is probably not interested in this in the absract.  That is, they own a particular model (whether CZ, Witness, Baby Eagle, etc.) and want to know which magazines will fit.  I have tried to make the format make sense in that regard, so people don't have to read the entire article(s) to find out what they want to know.  I think you will see why this has taken me some time when you see how long the entries are for just the 9mm and .40 CZ 75/85 series and variants.  

If anyone sees something that is incorrect, misleading, or just poorly worded, please let me know.

Hi, a compatability list is a great idea especially to anyone contemplating the purchase of a new/used handgun.  And a brand/model specific list is the only way to go.
A couple weeks ago I purchased a large frame 45 EAA Witness with 9mm and 22lr slides.  
I ordered 3 "full size" 9mm Promag magazines from CDNN only to find they don't fit the full size 45 Witness.  Now having spoken with the folks at Promag I know they don't make a 9mm magazine for the 45 frame.  EAA tells me all "Polymer-series" mags will fit the 45 frame which is an interesting bit of info.
CDNN will make good on the the mags so that's not a problem.  Problem is, valuable angst-ridden time has been wasted (and a few extra bucks) only because I didn't have the wherewithall (!) for quick and ready access to the info needed.
 
Incidently, the too-small for the 45 Witness 9mm Promags I bought are labeled:
EAA01
Witness 9mm 10RD PROMAG
FULL SIZE, TZ, BABY EAGLE EAGLE
MAGP  EAA
and should fit great in any of those guns.  Had I only known...

By the way, this Witness feels and shoots great even with the one 38SA magazine I'm using with the 9mm conversion.  Obviously I need the proper mags.
Hope this information proves useful in your master compatability FAQ list.
Would like to read and see more pix of EAA's as done on the other gun lists but that's another thread.  Hopefully I can contribute something useful here.

These mags are IDENTICAL except for the engraved lettering.  I have measured them extensively with calipers and they are the identical magazine.
Testing shows that the operate identically also.  :)
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: CZ75BSA on April 01, 2003, 04:04:52 PM
The Pro-Nags "work", but are a slightly different shape and the upper portion of the mag rubs lightly against the trigger pull bar because they are not as heavily tapered at the top as factory mags.  The plastic follower is definitel a cheap-ass piece of crap, and the rounds don't seem to feed smoothly off the top.

In spite of this, the one I have seems to work correctly so far, so I can't be TOO critical.  But I won't buy another.

In my recent experience, CZ75 factory 9mm 10 rd. mags will not work in an Uzi Baby Eagle.  

They look alike and the CZ mags fit quite nicely in the Uzi's mag well, but the Uzi's mag catch does not hold the mag in place.
Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: Walt-Sherrill on September 11, 2003, 05:20:57 PM
When Baby Eagle mags are used in a CZ, it is often necessary to enlarge the TOP of the mag release notch, because the CZ mag release sits higher in the grip than does the Eagle/Tanfoglito mags.  This has the effect of LOWERING the mag a little, and letting the mag CATCH work.

That being the case, you might want to enlarge the BOTTOM of the mag release notch of the CZ mags, to see how they fit in the BE.  (Take the grips off and see if you can SEE the problme...)  

It shouldn't take much, using a needle file.

They may function, but I'm not sure about fit.  

I picked up some Baby Eagle compacts a while back, and they're SHORTER than the CZ-75B Compact mags.  The Compact mags would probably work in the Baby Eagle (and, implicitly, in the Jericho), but might stick out.

You may just have to buy one to find out.   And then sell it here on the Forum if it doesn't fit.  You'll get a buyer.

Title: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: Walt-Sherrill on December 11, 2003, 07:08:59 PM
If the Baby Eagle Compact in .40 is the same size as the Compact in 9mm, then the .40 mags won't be a bit better than the 9mm mags.

Look in the classified area. A dealer who has joined the forum is ordering "Compact .40" Promags for forum members.

(Be warned, however, they may not work in older models of the Compact -- they didn't in one of mine.)

Good Evening, FEG. The ASAI is a Swiss copy of the cz. They were made in the city of Solothurn, so I'm guessing they are the same guys who made the Sphinxs and At84s, but I'm not sure. Magnum Research imported them for a little while I think in the early to mid 90's. I think I read somewhere that ASAI stood for advanced small arms institute, but I don't remember where I read that.

There's a big picture of one on the classified section of this forum. I've e-mailed the owner and he says he was told that cz 97 mags fit, and the baseplates look like the ones on my brothers witness .45, but I'd like to make sure before I buy the gun. I try to have at least four mags for each of my guns that I shoot a lot, I'm real clumsy!:lol

I have a 1991 cz-75 (pre-b) with four supposedly factory magazines.  None match, one being so bad as to have the flat faced front instead of an angle.   However, they all have bad wear on the followers from the slide stop, and now a few will no longer lock up the slide when empty.

Does anyone sell replacement followers for these?

Also I used to see magazine springs, but its been a while since I picked up anything that would have had an advertisement in it.  Any links to replacements for hi-cap ones?

For Magazine Springs, see the folks at Wolff Gunsprings.

www.gunsprings.com/ (http://www.gunsprings.com/)

As for CZ Magazine Followers, that is more of a problem as CZ does not sell them.  You might wish to contact MecGar to see if they would sell you some.  The only other alternative would be to try the Magazine Followers sold by CPMI, for the EAA Witness Pistols.

Re: wear on the slide stops so that the slide doesn't lock back.

Be sure it isn't just weak mag springs -- which is the most likely diagnosis.

You can buy some cheap replacement mags and use their followers, if worse comes to worst.  (EAA sells good followers on their website, but they're $5 each.  Probably worth it.  I don't know, however, that they will lock back the slide on a CZ...)

To get followers I had order a ProMag mag right from them and have them include 6 "spare" followers.  They wouldn't sell just the followers.

MecGar does not sell followers for CZ's.

The EAA followers work just fine in my CZ 75B SA.  They also appear to be a direct copy of the MecGar (CZ OEM) followers with the "legs".  Problem is -- when you put them in you cart on the EAA site and go to check out BAM!  $7.50 each for shipping! :eek   1 =  12.50, 2 = 25.00


My favorite:  50 are 250.00 plus 375.00 shipping = $625.00!  :rollin

Try calling EAA about the parts.  I think you'll get them for a bit less shipping.  I suspect their software isn't working quite right.

You get what you pay for these are nothing more than the generic eagle non 4 leg followers used in every 9mm eagle mag I have ever "seen"(read: stomped flat)

store.yahoo.com/cdnn/9mmmagfolfit.html (http://store.yahoo.com/cdnn/9mmmagfolfit.html)

They feed fine but will generally not lock the slide back.  However at $0.69 for 4 of them the fact that they do anything other than take up space in my mag parts drawer astounds me.

By the way, stay away from the eagle magazine springs also offered by CDNN.  They are only useful if you enjoy the postmans company, as after actually seeing them you will throw them away.

Good Luck,

How can you tell what kind of mags I have, I bought a .40 witness and it came with 3 mags, 2- 10 round  the followers have a central V shaped post for the spring, the other has the 4 legs, is marked .40 S&W and holds 14 rounds?

Ok, I have a compact witness in .45. I've been trying to get a couple of extra mags for shooting. I wouldn't mind getting full-size mags. CDNN has mags listed for the CZ TT45. Are these the same as those for the CZ 97B? If so, would they be compatible with my compact .45 Witness?

Thanks, Greg

You would be better off just ordering the proper magazines from EAA, rather than trying to find something else that will fit.  If you do get the fullsize magazines, then go ahead and order the rubber grip fillers from EAA, which fill the gap between the compact grip and the bottom of the fullsize magazine.

Hope this helps.

Hello all
Purchased a Witness PC 9mm Polymer frame compact
I guess the New Style Polymer frame compacts will use
the same mags as the steel guns.
www.ammoclip.com  has measurments on the web site
to assist with trying to find the correct mags. Just go to

Hello all. I'am new here and that is because I just bought a NORINCO NZ 85 B. It came with 2 mags and I want at least 1 more or better yet 3 more. Spare norinco mags are not available locally so I have to buy original CZ mags or some other brand of mag. What do I have to watch out for in terms of compatibility and function. If it fits the pistol will it follow that it will work properly? Before I buy the mags I can load it and fit it in my pistol and cycle the slide a few times but I may not fire the pistol. Will that be enough to insure that the mag works properly in my pistol?

Thanks a lot!

I hear there is no problem using CZ mags.  If they insert easily without scraping (look at the finish), lock nicely, open the slide when empty, chances are they will work.  I have found in other makes that some mags will drop free and some won't.  So buy one and see.  If a no go, sell it.

Hi all,

I need some help the mag is marked 41 AE. it fits & fnctions well but the follower will not lock the slide back.
The follower is a bit narrow in the front of the mag.

i'm using the mag in a 40cal.Baby Eagle with the red follower the new mag has a blackfollower.

 How can i modify the follower to lock the slide back.

I tried to swich the 41AE follower with a orignal it would have to be modified abit as the rear corners of the follower need to be reworked in the 41AE mag.

I should know by now to just spend the money and get a REAL mag.

Thanks for any help,

"I have a full size Witness 10mm. My question is, will the full size 40 cal mags work in this gun? How about the CZ mags? Any info will be helpful, thanks!"

I'm not sure from your post but it sounds like you may not be aware of the difference between the two frame sizes vs the two frame styles. If I'm out of line here then just smack me. But it looked like a good spot for a quick refresher clinic now that this post has grown so much. Greybeards of the clone board please correct me where I'm wrong, but keep in mind I am making this general, I'll point out some exceptions at the end.

There are two basic styles, usually called full-size and compact. There are also polymer and all-steel versions of both. For mags this isn't a big concern so we won't go into the polymers here.

There are also two frame sizes, usually referred to as large frame and small frame.

The small frame shoots (basically) 9mm and 40 S&W only. It is available in both styles, full-size and compact.

The large frame shoots (basically) 38 super, 10mm and 45. It is available in both styles, full-size and compact. They can also be converted to other calibers, including the ones used by the small frame version. This will muddy the water some as we'll see later.

Magazines intended for the large frame will not interchange with those intended for the small frame. Period.

Magazines for the compact will not fit a full size frame style(obviously because they are too short). However magazines for the full size frames will fit the compact style, just stick out a little on the bottom. More on that later.

Now, within the lineups, there is another thing to remember; the caliber of the magazine. For all intents and purposes, there are three basic "calibers" of magazines, and they roughly correspond to the boltface on the slide, which is geared to the diameter of the bullet rim. For the small frame there are two, 9mm and 40. On the large frame there are three, 38 super, 10mm and 45. The magazine has to match the shell diameter to feed properly. No matter what the magazine is marked, it is one of three basic sizes, 9mm/38, 10mm/40, and 45.

Now, to put all this together and answer your question about 40 mags in a 10mm, we'll walk through the basic questions you have to be able to answer to order the correct ones.

1) Is your gun style the compact or the full size? If it is the full size you can't use the compact mags, if it is the compact then you have to decide if you want a larger magazine that protrudes from the bottom or not.

2) Is your gun the small frame or the large frame? This is important and i can't stress this enough, it goes right over some people's heads. CURRENT CALIBER DOES NOT NECESSARILY MATTER, ONLY THE FRAME SIZE!!!. So many people ask things like "Will a 40 mag work in a 10mm?" and get ticked off when the answer is "maybe, it depends". I don't have my calipers or my pistols handy to give measurements but one way you might tell is if you know what caliber it came in from EAA. If it shoots 38 super, 45 or 10mm you have the large frame. The reverse is not always true though. If it shoots 9mm or 40 S&W, it is likely a small frame, BUT it could be a large frame set up to shoot one of these calibers.

3) You've determined the length of the magazine you want (compact or full size) and the frame size (large or small) but you aren't sure what caliber. This gets to be more important in large frame conversions to other calibers. 9mm and 38super have the same shell diameter, so yes, one should feed the other. 40 and 10mm, 357 sig share the same shell size. 45 is all by its lonesome unless you really get into the wildcats like 9x25. If you get this far, you shouldn't be looking at this post for answers though :)  

Polymer notes: I don't have experience with the witness P, but I think all the rules above apply. The unique thing about the polymer full size large frame mags is that they have a little rubber spacer doodad on them that makes them fit really well in the compact model. I don't know if there is one for the full size small frame magazines. I assume so.

Non-witness mag notes: That is the other half of the story and a lot of what this sticky was originally about. This post is just for the witness alone.

41AE notes: This is an oddball caliber. It uses the boltface and slide of the 9mm, but it has its own magazine. The only ones I've seen are for the small frame model, and they are of an older style baseplate. They will fit in the full size and the compact, but they aren't real comfortable to hold in the compact. The reason these were popular is that they were available at one time cheap, were high capacity and they seemed to cycle reasonably well with 40S&W, which is almost the same size. Back when hi-cap 40 mags were scarce, these were a cheap easy way to fit your 40 cal witness with a hi-cap mag legally. In reality though, if you have one it is worth more as a collectible than anything, they don't work well enough and totally suck in the compact for anything outside the range. If you also have a 41AE barrel then keep both as an accessory or see if you can find a buyer. I personally wouldn't mind scoring another barrel, and I bet there are those who wouldn't mind having the mag.

Newer frame note: I'm still not sure I gather what EAA is doing but I believe all their imports are now on the large frame. I have been out of commission for awhile so I am just catching up. The above should still apply because there are still plenty of the small frames out there NIB on jobber's shelves judging from the last gun show I went to.

I posted this question in another post.

I have noticed the factory mags don't fit snugly in the frame of the .45 Match Elite. I checked a number of Elite pistols at my local FFL and they all are pretty much the same.

When you insert the mag if you do not push the bottom forward it will not seat and lock in place. I'm going to modify one mag by enlarging the catch indention and see if this solves the problem. It's like the hole isn't quite long enough.

These are factory mags BTW with the T on them not Mec-Gar or Pro-Mag.

That would depend upon what version of the TZ75 that you have.  Series 88 and later TZ75's will use the 9mm/.40 frame EAA Witness magazines. I have been using Israeli (IMI) made CZ75 magazines in my pre-series 88 TZ75.  I've heard that Mec-Gar CZ75 magazines will also work in the pre-series 88 TZ75.  EAA has in the past, stocked magazines for the pre-series 88 TZ75's.  You might call them and ask if they still have them.  Another possibility, since you are in Canada, is to see if the magazines for the Norinco CZ Clones will fit and feed.  Good Luck!

Have you actually taken time to read this list?  ::)

When and what version of the TA90 you have, will determine which magazines to order.

Pre-Series 88 TA90's will use Pre-B CZ75 magazines or FIE/Excam Magazines.
EAA has had some magazines for the early pistols in stock. Call them and see if they still do.

Series 88 TA90's will use EAA Witness/Baby Eagle Magazines.  Buy only Mec-Gar Magazines!
Title: Springfield P9 compact

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum and new to CZ's. I need help finding mags for a 9mm, 1989 Springfield P9 Compact that I recently purchased. I tried EAA Witness compact 13rd., but the floor plate bottoms on the frame. They are about 1/8" too short to lock onto the catch.
I saw CZ-75 compact 14 rounders advertised and wonder if those might work, I can fit 14 rounds in my mag.
I would also consider a full size mag like the CZ-75 16 round with a filler, if I knew it would function.

Any advice is welcome, thanks.

Transitional 85s?  Darned if I know.  

I'll bet there are -- as the transition was apparently a  production line change.  

Any 85s made during that period probably have the same "transitional" characteristics as the 75s.

I have a transitional 85 and the newer 75B or 85 Combat mags WILL NOT fit. They will go about 3/4 up the mag well before getting stuck. Mine has a 93 date on it.

You could call them.  I'm not sure how knowledgeable their CS reps are with the Witness line though.

Another thing you could do is call EAA (I know, you would rather go to a dentist!)  They sell magazines for $25 each if you order more than one.  They will know exactly what mag will fit your gun.

The mags you'll need are for the large framed witness pistols, some of the standard Mec-Gar mags are for the older small frame guns like my Pre-88 TZ75. (http://i928.photobucket.com/albums/ad125/Eric_D_0424/TZleft.jpg)  It would help to know what caliber witness you have though, Midway has three Mec-Gar witness mags, 9mm, (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=365784) 38-Super (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=410356) and 45ACP. (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=914096)  If yours is 38-Super or 45ACP, the Mec-Gar mags may fit because they were large framed pistols from the start I believe.  But they don't currently make magazines for the current production large framed witness.

I'm using the MGGT2116B mags (http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=365784) in my Pre-88 TZ75 in 9mm, but they don't fit in the new large frame witness, I tried to fit one in the 2006 9mm poly witness I had to repair in 2006 and my TZ75 mags were too small.

FYI, the "CheaperThanDirt" mags for the Match fit perfectly.  They're the same brand that come with the gun.  Took about 2 full weeks to arrive, but other than that it's fine.

I also discovered the mags are available directly through Davidson's (the distributor that I got my gun through), but they were out of stock as of a couple of weeks ago.

I've spoken several time with the VP of Mec-gar USA about producing a large frame mag for 40 and 10mm ammo. They now only make large frame mags in 9mm,38 Super and 45acp. Mec-gars 40 S&W mag is for the Full-Size frame.

While David (VP-Mec-Gar USA ) and i talked through December, The owners of Tanfogloi and Mec-Gar in Italy were talking about Mec-Gar taking over the contract for Tans Factory mags.
 Per David thats a done deal ( as long as MG,s mags meet Tan,s spec,s--very hard for me to believe they won't ) and January,s shipment to EAA will be maged-up by Mec-Gar. Wholesalers should also have the new mags in January. I will speak with David on 1/3/11 and report back with any updates

what is think alot of people are looking gor is this;

what mags go in the butt of the gun and lock in place, and feed right, this info for every caliber and such
                                    then
for compacts what mags will fit, lock in place and feed right, which ones fit flush and which ones hang out the bottom and the which ones hang out far enough for a mag spacer, and which ones stick out but only marginally and such.

and then does eaa specifically restamp 2 of the same mag bodies, such as the .10mm and .40 mags, both are interchangable, but does eaa mark each one as caliber specific?

when i think of the word "FIT" when it comes to magazines, i think about fiting in the guns but to lock in. if a mag sticks out he bottom but stay secure, and feeds right, i consider it a "FIT" even if it hangs out 2 feet from the bottom of the gun.

The MecGar CZ 75B mag fits my TZ.88 very well and cycles with no problem manually.  I'll give a range report once I get it to the range, but for now it looks like their model MGCZ7516B ($24.99 at MidwayUSA) fits the TZ.88 (1988 build date).

my norinco nz85b is an exact copy of the cz will accept magazine from cz 75, 85 and tanfoglio 9mm as long as it has a flat non plastic base plate. the newer version magazine for the cz sp series i havent checked if it will fit. also, i havent tried it on a jericho 941 or a bul cherokee.

I am looking for a 15 rd magazine since I live in NJ.

Would the baby eagle 9mm mag work?

Would any others?

Nope!  Different Frame sizes.  Your .45 Witness is built on the Tanfoglio large Frame, hence you must use Large Frame Witness Magazines for the 9mm.  Buy them from EAA or Hennings.  However, as to the capacity problem, I've only ever seen them in 18 round capacity or 10 round capacity.  Not sure what you can do there.

Maybe.  The Mec-Gar 16 round Magazines cannot be used in the SAR K2P as they won't go in the Magazine Well deep enough to reach the Magazine Latch, but the Mec-Gar Cz75 17 round and 19 round Magazines will work in the SAR K2P very nicely.

I have a Witness P-S 9mm bought in 2012, a SAR B6PC and a CZ75B Omega

Witness P-S will work with the factory 16rd CZ mags, the MecGar CZ75 17 and 19 round mags, the Elander 16rd mag

All of the above will work in the SAR, but stick out of course. 

The Tanfoglio 16rd mags as well as the Elander 16rd mags work in the CZ75B Omega, they look and feel better too since they have the poly floor plate. (IMO)

This may be super obvious but i had to try: You can not use the MecGar plus two extension on any of the above mags except the 17rd MecGar.  They fit fine on the Tanfo and Elander mags, as well as 16rd CZ/MecGar mags, but they won't lock in place after (on the witness or CZ, they may work in the SAR but I didn't try)  You could probably modify them to work pretty easily.

Hi there.

My gun isn?t an actual clone, as it is a CZ TT9. I have found out that large frame Tanfoglio/Witness full size 9mm magazines would fit.

Are there any compatibility issues between steel and polymer frame Tanfoglio/Witness guns? I?m about to order some mags from Tanfoglio, but I would need to know if there are any differences between the two frame "types".

Magazines for the Polymer framed Pistols and Steel framed Pistols are the same, but exchange only per frame size and Large Frame Magazines are Larger than their Small Frame relatives and do NOT interchange.

Also, you might try Cz75B Magazines in your TT9, as I regularly use them in my Small Frame 9mm Tanfoglio Pistols.

Thank you. Like I said, large frame magazines should fit. I just didn?t know wether or not poly and steel frame magazines were different.

Small frame/CZ 75 magazines do not fit my gun, I have tried. They are too small :)  And the dimensions given for large frame mags are the same as the ones on my CZ TT9 magazine. And I bought a .40 magazine for a TT40, it fits the frame and it?s stamped Tanfoglio. So maybe now I have the courage to order magazines from Tanfoglio.

BTW, do you know of any other shop (than Tanfoglio) that sells EAA/Tanfoglio magazines and ships to Europe?

The 83 seems to be just fine but the mossad came with a 10 round mag and I would like to buy one of the larger compasity mags and don't know which one to buy. I have read this thread and found no info on the mossad. I think they offer a 15 round one. Does anyone have a sku number that would work for me. I think my gun would be considered a small frame gun but I don't know for sure. I love the looks of the gun. Guess I'm a old school guy. Thanks

Hi, I just joined, so I'm playing catch up.

What ban are you speaking of? I purchased my witness .45 compact in 1997. does that make it a pre or post ban?

Also I was wondering if the full sized magazine will work in a compact. If so, is there a sleeve or something like that to protect what extends beyond the bottom of the grip? Kinda like what Walther did for the PPK by adding a finger rest extension on some mags.
Title: Re: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: jwc007 on June 23, 2016, 02:20:59 AM
What ban are you speaking of?

Generally, the ban being referred to is the Magazine Capacity 10 round limit imposed by the 1994 Crime Bill ( which was a crime in and of itself ).
The Ban expired in 2004 and is no longer relevant except when dealing with the 10 round Magazines built during that time.
Also, some USA States have Magazine Capacity restrictions, usually 10 rounds.

I purchased my witness .45 compact in 1997. does that make it a pre or post ban?

Post-ban

Also I was wondering if the full sized magazine will work in a compact. If so, is there a sleeve or something like that to protect what extends beyond the bottom of the grip?

Yes, a full size 10 round .45 Magazine should work in your Pistol, but I am unaware of any space filler sleeve made to adapt it to a Compact.

This is perhaps a dumb question....


Not only have I fallen in love with my  post-2005 full sized steel frame 10mm Witness, but my wife has as well. To the tune of my having bought her her very own and her wanting to get her CCW  and giving me the thumbs up for buying associated accessories.

One of the aspects of the (post-2005 all calibers built on the large frame) Witness that I like is the ability to swap between many calibers with just a slide and barrel exchange.

My question is....do all of the caliber versions of the post-2005 Witnesses use the same magazine shell with just different/followers and/or springs? 
I haven't picked up a caliber conversion kit yet so I can not use the simple expedient of measuring samples, and I can't get one shipped to me here just to measure (it's a no-go to ship to my APO address). 


No complaints either way, but it would be very interesting to know if a person could simply buy magazines in one caliber and just a supply of followers for any caliber conversions they were considering.

So picked up a SAR B6P 4.5". To confirm the 16 round MG CZ 75B mags will work fine correct?

Yes, but the Slide is best locked open for seating.  I much prefer the 17 and 19 round Mec-Gar Cz75B AFC Magazines.
My SAR B6P spends more time at the Range with the 19 rounder in place.

So these will fit the B6P?

Yes, but you can get much better prices on them from Greg Cote:

Are these the correct mags for the SAR Arms B6P 9mm?

http://www.tombstonetactical.com/catalog/eaa/sar-b6-full-size-magazine-9mm-17rd/

Just want to make sure I got the right ones before ordering...  Thanks!

I have one in my hand and the printed label on the wrapper says B6P 17+1 and they are what I sell with and are identical to what is with the K2P so I assume they are the correct ones.

I am discussing a new magazine I got in another thread, but thought I would mention it here for added thread value and hopes there is more information about the mag.  The mag was sold to me by the distributor as a SAR K2P mag, but the mag was stamped "MG WIT 9-SF" and had a metal base plate similar to what the K2P mag has, but the mag seems to be slightly longer and the leading edge of the mag, where it would meet the feed ramp, has been cut different and there is a hole in the face of the mag none of my SAR or TF mags have.
Title: Re: Magazine Compatibility Master List
Post by: nmcarbine on January 21, 2017, 04:37:14 PM
As an add-on to the story, the mag sold for the K2P marked as a Witness mag fit the Witness and the K2P.  Then I ordered the Witness version with the plastic base plate and it fits the Witness, but not the K2P, the base plate is too thick (high) I guess as it doesn't engage the mag release.  I am guessing some grinding or filing could rectify the situation.
Title: TriStar C-100 does not "lock" magazines from native CZ-75 Compact
Post by: whiskeybravo on February 11, 2017, 08:17:00 AM
In early 2016, at the time I bought myself a hybrid CZ-75 Compact (i.e. my CZ Compact has an official build model # 99003 which is company sanctioned cross between a P-01 and a Compact D PCR), I also bought my wife a TriStar C-100 whose magazines match (capacity-wise) to my CZ compact. The TriStar is a beautiful clone, by the way, and is more than $200 less than the original. I got it for her so she would have the same quality for any carry or personal defense weapon that I would carry in a compact.


Anyway, I was disappointed to find out the TriStar C-100 does not "lock" in the CZ compact magazine I insert.  The reverse situation, though, does not have the same problem: My CZ compact correctly receives a magazine from the TriStar C-100.


Has anyone else had this same observation? And, in this type of general situation, is there a best course of action to follow? (perhaps, contact TriStar first, followed by a who-cares rejection from them, or maybe get a response of "yeah, we know about that, send us the two original TriStar magazines and we'll replace them") ??


I'm not about to take on any milling operation myself.


Thanks in advance for your replies.

I don't know if this has been covered yet but, here is my 2 cents.

My Sphinx SDP mags fit and function perfectly in my CZ p-01.  But the CZ p-01 mags are about an 1/8 inch too short and will not lock in the Sphinx. 

Having FTF issues with my Jericho 45.  I think I'll try witness 45 mags.

Mec-Gar .45 Witness Magazines should work.

FWIW, I've cured problems with my Witness Magazines with Wolff +10% strength Magazine Springs.
Also, depending upon how old your Jericho .45 is, there was a change to the Magazine Latch in the late 1990's.
The newer Magazine Latch holds the Magazine a bit higher in the Frame for better feeding.
I replaced the Magazine Latch in my 1992 era .45 Witness and it's been great.

I just purchased a Tanfoglio BTA90 that only came with one magazine. The original mags have a very nice a machined metal baseplate but they seem to be few and far between, so I'm looking for other options. The two most promising I've come across are this Magnum Research magazine (https://gunmagwarehouse.com/magnum-research-baby-desert-eagle-9mm-12-round-compact-magazine.html) and this EAA / Tanfoglio magazine (http://gregcotellc.com/cart/eaa-witness-mecgar-magazines-c-134/eaa-witness-compact-baby-eagle-tz-75-compact-13-rd-9mm-eaa913c-p-1912.html). For some reason the latter link says it doesn't fit in the BTA90, but for the life of me I can't figure out why it wouldn't. I would prefer that magazine over the Magnum Research one because the baseplate is going to match the contour of the frame better.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Also, to help add more info to the compatibility list:

Jericho 941R accepts and locks open on the following magazines:
- new production IWI 16 round mag with metal baseplate
- CZ 75B 16 round mags with metal baseplate
- CZ 75B 10 round / short body mags with plastic baseplate

CZ 75B accepts and locks open on the following magazines:
- original IMI 16 round mag with metal baseplate
- new production IWI 16 round mag with metal baseplate

Tanfoglio BTA90
accepts and locks open on the following magazines (all protrude from bottom):
- original IMI 16 round mag with metal baseplate
- new production IWI 16 round mag with metal baseplate
- CZ 75B 16 round mags with metal baseplate
- CZ 75B 10 round / short body mags with plastic baseplate

Everything appears to be interchangeable except the BTA90 mag is to short to fit in the full-size guns.

Unusual, because my Series 88 TA90 Compact will accept and run with the Small Frame Compact Witness Magazines.
Got a deal on some surplus Small Frame Witness Magazines and they've been excellent.
Could be someone got a hold of a pre-Series 88 Compact TA90 and tried those Magazines in it.

Both my Full Size and Compact Series 88 TA90's came with the Ambidextrous Safety Installed and it was Standard OEM for that build.
Early in the production cycle, they installed the Right Side only Safeties, using up parts from the previous models,
and I have seen examples of both.

Mine has a 1988 production code, so that would explain it.

I would prefer that magazine over the Magnum Research one because the baseplate is going to match the contour of the frame better.

I just got the one from Greg Cote LLC in the mail and I can see why it's claimed as not being compatible with the BTA90. It will lock into my pistol, but only with a hard smack to seat it. A few tenths of a millimeter of tolerance here and there, and it might not work in other pistols of the same type.

The problem appears to be that there isn't quite enough distance between the catch and the top of the baseplate. The plastic baseplate on this one is quite a bit thicker where it grabs over the magazine body than my OEM metal baseplate. To make this mag work better I will probably either open up the catch recess or shave down the top of the baseplate.

On a purely aesthetic note, the plastic baseplate does not match the contour of the frame and juts forward by about 3/32". I will probably re-profile it to match with a file or sander.

I would shave down the top of the Baseplate and leave Magazine Catch Notch alone, but that's just me.

Disassemble the Magazine and see if the Magazine Body without it's Baseplate will Latch in, first.

Hard to say without knowing exactly which model Vintage your brothers Pistol is.

Pre-series 88 Tanfoglio Pistols will use Pre-B Cz75 Magazines.

I found out something weird that I never heard of about my brothers TA90... I was trying to figure out the exact year and model of it to determine what type of magazines to search for. I found out that it's a AU Model year. But I don't know what this means in reference toe searching for compatible magazines..

Post by: jwc007 on April 03, 2020, 03:02:35 PM
I found out that it's a AU Model year.

That would place manufacture somewhere between 1988 and 1989.  Posting a pic of it would help matters in determining it's exact configuration, but with what info you have provided, I believe that it is a Series 88 Tanfoglio Pistol.
