Where do you buy magazines for CZ P-01, PCR and compact
« on: March 02, 2024, 12:35:13 PM »
I never had the luck to see them in any of the local stores. They are also out of stock in the majority of the online stores. It seems that CZ is making their handguns abundantly available but not so much for the magazines.

On the other hand, you can find magazines for SP-01 easily. They do fit P-01, but I don't like the fact that they are extending out so much.

If they are out ask to be put on the mailing list and be notified when they are back in stock

I've read, here, that Mecgar makes the magazines for CZ.

CZ adds an extra $10 or $12 to the price if the mag is stamped CZ rather than Mecgar.
I just keep wasting time and money on other brands trying to find/make one shoot like my P07 and P09.  What is wrong with me?

It seems that most retailers are out of stock for this type of magazines

First of the year tax time everyone lets their stock run down. They'll be back shortly.

As of the last couple of years I have bought all of my mags at Greg Cote LLC.

I notice there are some for sale in Europe.

Are there any import restrictions sending them to the US? It seems there was a limit of $100 US worth of gun parts consumers could order from foreign countries without having to get a permit or running afoul of US Customs.

Anybody know for sure about that?

ETA

Never mind — what I was looking at turned out to be a scam site called rainierarm . ch anyway.

Besides, ordering a few gun parts from Europe requires atf / Customs permits, fees, time, federal scrutiny, yada yada blah blan blah to be done legally, even for $100 or less in parts…so hardly worth the effort.

Quick check showed some CZ 15 round Compact mags for about $43 each here:

I've bought from them before and got what I ordered.

Those look like Mec Gars sold through CZ — about double what Mec Gars usually cost from Mec Gar itself.

Supply and demand, I suppose.

Originally, the P-01 came with 14-rd magazines of unknown (to me) origin, possibly Mec Gar, with black followers. Then, few years ago, Mec Gar came out with an improved “+ 1” 15-rd mag with a blue “anti-friction” follower that seems to work appreciably better than the original 14-rd “factory” mags.

The last CZ compact I saw (2022 vintage) came out of the box with different 15-rd mags, stamped with a CZ pistol logo on front with 15 individual witness holes on the back, oddly staggered so that the #15 hole actually sits higher than the #14 hole. They have black plastic followers. I have no idea who makes these new 15-rd factory mags.

I recently ordered some from Suarez international- have yet to receive them and have been unable to contact them telephonically or have they responded to my emails requesting status

Very disappointing this lack of communication
Like a midget at a urinal, I'll have to keep on my toes
