MG 17rd AFC with SP pads work.


Sphinx vs Mec-Gar mags





I noticed the MG mags with a notch at the bottom front work like the factory mags.  My MG mags without the notch would fit, but were tight. (~.010" larger F-R)

I got bogged down trying to read the whole thread, but I can confirm that cz-75b mecgar 17 round mags work with pre-2007 Jericho 941 F  steel frame pistols.

Hi, I just joined, so I'm playing catch up.

What ban are you speaking of? I purchased my witness .45 compact in 1997. does that make it a pre or post ban?

Also I was wondering if the full sized magazine will work in a compact. If so, is there a sleeve or something like that to protect what extends beyond the bottom of the grip? Kinda like what Walther did for the PPK by adding a finger rest extension on some mags.

Generally, the ban being referred to is the Magazine Capacity 10 round limit imposed by the 1994 Crime Bill ( which was a crime in and of itself ).
The Ban expired in 2004 and is no longer relevant except when dealing with the 10 round Magazines built during that time.
Also, some USA States have Magazine Capacity restrictions, usually 10 rounds.

Post-ban

Yes, a full size 10 round .45 Magazine should work in your Pistol, but I am unaware of any space filler sleeve made to adapt it to a Compact.

This is perhaps a dumb question....


Not only have I fallen in love with my  post-2005 full sized steel frame 10mm Witness, but my wife has as well. To the tune of my having bought her her very own and her wanting to get her CCW  and giving me the thumbs up for buying associated accessories.

One of the aspects of the (post-2005 all calibers built on the large frame) Witness that I like is the ability to swap between many calibers with just a slide and barrel exchange.

My question is....do all of the caliber versions of the post-2005 Witnesses use the same magazine shell with just different/followers and/or springs? 
I haven't picked up a caliber conversion kit yet so I can not use the simple expedient of measuring samples, and I can't get one shipped to me here just to measure (it's a no-go to ship to my APO address). 


No complaints either way, but it would be very interesting to know if a person could simply buy magazines in one caliber and just a supply of followers for any caliber conversions they were considering.

I guess you can call me new.  I bought my SAR K2 45 three weeks ago and I?ve been here ever sense trying to learn and ask questions.  I guess I?m going to be the oddball.   I?ve read you full post from start to finish.   I?m looking for high capacity mags for my SAR K2 45.   The MEC-GAR 14 round mags are nice, but I would like more capacity around 20+.   I don?t care if they stick out.

This particular thread has largely addressed the 9mm and maybe .40 clones.  The SAR K2 .45 came along much later.

Try some extended Magazines for the ParaOrdnance P series Pistols, if you can find any.

I found some 20 rounders made by Pro-Mag for the Para Warthog/P12/13/14.   Will they work in the SAR K2 45?   Or will have to mod them to lock open or lock in the mag well?

ProMag has such a poor reputation, I couldn't possibly vouch for anything made by them.

The ParaOrdnance Pistol Magazines should work as is, but you may need to replace the Followers.

So picked up a SAR B6P 4.5". To confirm the 16 round MG CZ 75B mags will work fine correct?

Yes, but the Slide is best locked open for seating.  I much prefer the 17 and 19 round Mec-Gar Cz75B AFC Magazines.
My SAR B6P spends more time at the Range with the 19 rounder in place.

So these will fit the B6P?
