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.


Pre-Series 88 Tanfoglio Tz75/TA90

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.

Any update would be appreciated. I have a TZ75 and just purchased 2 witness mags and have run into the same issue with the base plate. Anyone know of a source for the metal ones? Same place has unicorns I imagine...

I own a SAR 2000 and a CZ 75B pistol both in stainless steel. The CZ magazines will not work in the SAR 2000 but the SAR 2000 magazines will work in the CZ 75B they stick out the bottom by about 1/16". The CZ 75B magazines would not lock up in the pistol. My brothers CZ SP01 magazines would work in the SAR 2000. Really like the SAR 2000 it is more capable than I am.

I mistakenly ordered some of the Mec-Gar 19 round CZ75B magazines with the "Drop Protection System" baseplates instead of the regular 19 rounders I've been using for years.  Happy accident is that they seat much more easily in my B6P than the older versions do.  The new ones don't require quite the "nudge" to get them to lock in as the old ones do.

I own a Norinco NZ85B. The Tangfoglio/EAA witness 15 rounder mags (plastic base plate, with red plastic followers) fits also.
