The problem appears to be that there isn't quite enough distance between the catch and the top of the baseplate. The plastic baseplate on this one is quite a bit thicker where it grabs over the magazine body than my OEM metal baseplate. To make this mag work better I will probably either open up the catch recess or shave down the top of the baseplate.

I would shave down the top of the Baseplate and leave Magazine Catch Notch alone, but that's just me.

Disassemble the Magazine and see if the Magazine Body without it's Baseplate will Latch in, first.

Hard to say without knowing exactly which model Vintage your brothers Pistol is.

Pre-series 88 Tanfoglio Pistols will use Pre-B Cz75 Magazines.

Series 88 and later Tanfoglio Pistols can use Mec-Gar Cz75B Magazines and current small frame 9mm EAA Witness Magazines

I found out something weird that I never heard of about my brothers TA90... I was trying to figure out the exact year and model of it to determine what type of magazines to search for. I found out that it's a AU Model year. But I don't know what this means in reference toe searching for compatible magazines..

That would place manufacture somewhere between 1988 and 1989.  Posting a pic of it would help matters in determining it's exact configuration, but with what info you have provided, I believe that it is a Series 88 Tanfoglio Pistol.
