Well that's just great - right after I spent a couple hundred bucks on a HBI mag adaptor and a bunch of C-Products AR mags...

I called CZ USA last week, who told me they had no idea when they were going to get anymore 7.62x39 magazines.

ALL of the vendors listed are out of stock at this time, mostly local mom & pop stores with a smattering of nationally recognized vendors.

I ordered some from Tin Star several days ago because they are a LGS and close geographically, but have not heard anything back from them.

ETA: Finally received the mags from Tin Star, two weeks later. They seem to be a surly, indolent lot. It pays to check reviews of unknown vendors before ordering. These folks had a pretty lousy rating, but at least I finally got my mags.

If CZ were smart, they'd really get their game up and bring their mags (as well as every other part) into the USA ASAP before the election during this panic-demic.

After several mag dumps, I can attest that the C-Products 30-rd AR15 mags in 7.62x39 (with an HBI adapter) work very well as an alternative to the OEM Bren 2 mags in that caliber. So if CZ doesn't get on the stick soon, C-Products and some of the other x39 AR mags may end up eating their lunch in this regard.

This is always the risk when you create a rifle that takes its own proprietary mag.

CZ has a ton of production line items.  They have to relegate resources and production lines to produce each of these products.  Diverting funds to produce magazines is an expensive proposition.  I would hazard a guess that they dont have enough production capacity to satisfy demand and they probably will NOT ramp up to produce more.  I could be completely wrong though.  I would imagine that the sale of 5.56 guns out stripes the 7.62X39 and most of what they're producing for the .30 cal guns is probably going towards their military contracts.

Thankfully, HBI has provided an alternative at retail for us folks.  Its doubly cool that the gun can even do this.

How well does the AR mag adapter work? Is it good to go?

The HBI mag adaptor, when installed, works pretty bleeped well. I had no problem dumping C-Products mags with it.

The problem is that it is so bleeped difficult to install without two or more sets of hands. The procedure to remove the tiny little washer from the mag release assembly on the 7.62 gun and put it all back together again is such a huge pain in the ass. Best to skip removal of this seemingly insignificant washer and arduous reassembly if you can.

If I had it to do over again, I would just insert the adaptor and see it the AR mags will seat in the mag well and function under fire. If it does, skip the washer removal and leave the mag release assembly alone.

If you really have to remove that little washer, do so in a small bare room or closet, otherwise, invariably all the parts of the assembly will go flying off into orbit at some point, never to be seen again. The disk thing that HBI supplies to assemble is basically useless. I finally had to cut a coil off the spring to squeeze it all back together, but it's still not quite right.

I did figure out a better, seemingly fool-proof way to remove and re-install the mag release assembly without the parts flying off, but it too, is fairly labor intensive and you need a vice.

PITA!!!
