Anyone have any thoughts on the CZ 11119 16 round magazine for compact / P-01, vs. the Mec-Gar 16rd MGCZ7516B/0430177001 with SP-01 baseplate combo?

I was looking for a larger capacity magazine for my P-01 and got a couple of each.

CZ 11119 sort of rattles around in the pistol and there is a little bit of a gap between the top of the base plate and the bottom of the pistol. Rather disappointed. Vs. the Mec-Gar MGCZ7516B/0430177001 which doesn't rattle around, and there is no gap.

Doesn't make sense, I thought Mec-Gar made the CZ Mec-Gar 11119 magazine, but they sure don't seem like the same item?

I just ordered (last night) 2 of the CZ 11119 mags from GunMagWarehouse, so once I receive them and have a chance to try them out, I’ll let you know what I find.

I’ll throw my two cents in.  I have 25 or so mags, all of them Mec-Gar 16 round. 10 for my 75, 15 for my compact or P1 with the SP-01 base plates.  Never had one issue, one failure to feed, nothing. They work flawlessly.  So for me there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. It’s already been invented and I’m extremely happy with the end result. And by the way, I have rattling as well at times which is the bullets moving inside the magazine. Sometimes a stiff bang on my hand will settle it down and sometimes not but it’s never caused any issues :)

I don't have as many mags as plumber, but will agree with what he said.

Received the CZ 16-rounders today. Just tried them in the P-01 and they fit perfectly. I didn’t load them yet, but everything plumber4444 said I also agree with.

Also, I have two of the 19-round Mec-Gars for my 75B & SP-01, and they have been very reliable. In fact, the anti-friction coating (AFC) is awesome; the mags slide in like they were buttered. :o
