Mecgar mags lock back slide on 941?
« on: June 21, 2020, 05:04:16 PM »
From what I've read, the MecGar magazines work well in the 941 and its deratives. For the life of me, I cannot find out if the mag follower locks the slide back after the last round. From what I've read, some mags in certain CZ clones won't lock the slide back after the final shot. Thanks folks!

This will be interesting, I just looked into this myself.  I've seen the most reports that function is 100% EXCEPT they don't lock back, a few reports they function fine and can lock back, a few reports they can be modified to lock back, and then some very isolated reports of needing to modify the catch slot or baseplate to work at all.

I have two Jericho 941s on the way to me now and have been doing tons of searches on this subject as I want to be able to use the 50ish CZ mags I already own.

I have 3 Jerichos, 1 steel IMI & 2 polymer IWI’s, and my MecGar 17 & 19 round AF mags function fully in all 3. If I can ever make it to the range I’ll make a video.

Do the standard CZ-75 16 rounders work properly in the 941? I imagine that they would.

Ok so it turns out I have two 16 round MecGar MG-CZ75-9mm mags. They do lock in fully with a firm tap in both the IMI steel Jericho and the IWI polymer Jericho and do lock the slide back on both. Keep in mind, that’s only by hand, not under live fire conditions. I can try them next time at the range and report back but I’m 99% sure they’ll work.

Please keep us posted about the 16 rounders. Please keep us in the loop, as we're curious to know.

I find the 19 round magazines have been hit or miss.  Sometimes they lock back, sometimes they dont.

I have a 941FS 9mm purchased new directly from IWI earlier this year.

Went shooting today and it’s official, MecGar 16,17,&19 round mags all locked the slide back when empty on my IMI Jericho 941 surplus SAO, my 2015 IWI Jericho polymer, and the all new IWI Jericho Enhanced polymer.

Thank you very much for the range report, Gunnerdad80. I can finally lay that question to rest.

The new 10rd Mec mags I purchased for my IMI sao surplus also function in it 100%, in case anyone is wondering.
