Does anyone out there make good quality aftermarket magazines for the 100 in .40 cal.?

I can get factory mags from cz-usa for $33 per the web site. Just looking for a second source of mags at a better price?

Can it be done?

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not really after you!

Natchez Shooters Supplies has Pro Mags for the CZ75 in .40 caliber listed @ $13.95 ea. They may extend below the Grip an inch or so but they should work because my mags for my CZ40B work but they do extend as previously mentioned.

Thanks for the quick response. I really want factory length magazines, however. I intend to use this pistol for cc, and I need two mags to replace the two I must send in to CZ-USA ( red followers ).

Thanks again.

Old Coastie:  Promag makes mags for the CZ-100.  Check with them for a price I cannot remember the quote.  I received two of them from Promag for a problem with mags for my TZ-75.  I am not sure I am going to be happy with them.  I had a heck of a time getting them apart for cleaning.  I might have damaged one trying to get it apart.  Anyway, give them a call.

Thanks for the info. I ordered two mags. Just waiting for them to arrive so I can send my two red follower mags back to CZ-USA.

I'll let you know how they work out.

Does anyone have or know if there are any CZ100 9mm mags that are full cap instead of the casterated 10 rounders?

There won't be any hi-caps for the CZ-100.  The gun was introduced after the ban, and is a unique size.  You'll have to go with mags built for a different gun.  (And even then, you may have problems.)

Does anyone know if the hi-cap mags for the Compact CZ-75B will work in these guns?

I tried swapping mags between the two.  They fit, locked in, locked back the slide.... but that is the only way that I have gotten my -100 to jam so far was using those mags.  At least 2 stoppages per mag.

Springs are generally the weak point with Pro-Mag magazines.  

Try swapping out the factory springs for the Pro-mags.  If that fixes the problem, order some replacement springs from Wolff springs, and you'll be set.

(I used EAA Witness factory mags in my CZ-40B.  I had to enlarge the mag catch notch on the top side, but they worked flawlessly thereafter.  The extended a fraction more than the CZ-40B factory mags, but also had the metal base plates, which I prefer to the factory plastic.  These were CHEAP!: $7.99 from CDNN.  They don't have any at the moment, however.  These would extend farther in the CZ-100 than you'd probably like.)

You've got to check CDNN frequently to take advantage of their great prices and sales.

A .40 mag for one of compact versions of the clones MIGHT work in the CZ-100, but it can be costly finding out.
