Need Your Help to ID These Magazines
« on: April 05, 2021, 01:17:27 AM »
I recently purchased 3 magazines that were identified as CZ75 magazines, thinking that they would fit an SP-01 Phantom.  I cleaned them up and found that the trigger would not re-set once the magazine was inserted and trigger pulled.  The magazines fit into the SP-01 Phantom magwell & lock into the pistol and lock the slide open & drop free when released.

Once I started comparing the magazines to the factory OE mags, I can see the mag tube for the Unidentified mags was more square in the front of the mag and the feed area in the front of the mag was cut more shallow than the OE mag.  The shape of the mag tube is interfering with the trigger reset.  I'd like to get these magazines to a good home, but don't want to mis-identify them for their next owner.  I did a bit of research and learned that there are Type A and Type B firearms along with the Transitionals that use different magazines, but still not able to properly id these mags.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

welcome

just an fyi, the top photo appears the mag suffered some damage from teh slide?  it looks like a notch is on the front.

also, the mag catch cut outs appear to be different size.

so overall, not sure what you have but to me, they maybe 2 different mags for different platforms. 

if you have any gun shows/shops in your area or any friends, maybe take them to a gun shop/show and start comparing and have some friends check their toys

good luck,

I can't say with 100% certainty but those DO NOT appear to be either CZ factory mags or even Mec-Gars so I'm betting they are cheap aftermarket units from Pro-Mag or USA Mags. I just hope you didn't pay alot for them.

Welcome to the Forum WTMint
Given those Mag Bases, that leads me to believe they are actually Witness / TZ Mags
