Just a heads up, if you buy 3 you get free shipping from Aim. Only way to go as Aim tends to be a bit expensive on shipping charges.

Yep...I considered that, as the shipping charge also goes up with the order for two.. IIRC I left maybe 14 bucks on the table for a third one, but having five in stock already made me pull up on the 3rd one.  I wanted to leave some for you guys!   ;)

I bought one of the mags from Classic Firearms. It is definitely not a real CZ-UB mag (new or surplus).

Whoever is making / importing the bogus "cz mfg" magazines needs a serious kick in the nads.  O0

tried the "cz mfg" mag at the range today. Three times it had a fail to feed on the last round and only locked the slide back on empty once in 5 mag loads. Good thing I had one of the real vz 82 (crossed swords) surplus magazines with me. This is one of my carry pistols, and the "cz mfg" is junk, I doubt it will even get used as a range mag.

After trying all the recommended "fixes" for these mags and a trip to the range to test them, I can unequivocally state that these are garbage. I'm tearing then down for internal spare parts.

Hello all, this is my first time posting, I just purchased a CZ82 "chipped grip" from J&G last week, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the gun. I wanted to get a few more magazines.

I found and ordered 3 from jesticearms.com. They were only 15.95 each. All 3 that I received had the crossed swords, and were in great shape.

Hers's a link - http://jesticearms.com/CZ-82-83-Mag-9x18-Makarov-380-CZ82-13rd-Magazine?search=cz82
These are still available at $17.95 each with $6.95 shipping.  Appear to be true surplus mags at a good price.

Everyone I know who have ordered these seem pleased. Same mags, same quality as the ones from Aim. Who knows, Aim may get more, but it's good to have a backup plan. Enjoy

Forget the junk from CDNN. Order the surplus mags from Jestice Arms and save yourself a little money and a lot of grief.

as stated by another poster, what CDNN calls "factory" magazines have absolutely no connection with CZ-UB's factory and they are 4th rate junk.

They appear to be well built as I bought two from Centerfire Systems with I purchased my CZ 83 and they will work...just not always well enough to trust them for times when they absolutely, positively have to perform.  OK for range time...IMO.  The two that I ordered from CDNN I returned unused after reading about them here and also from my experience with the first two.

My vz 82 couldn't go more than 3-4 rounds without a misfeed using the "CZ mfg" garbage mags. Has never failed with crossed swords surplus magazines or real CZ-UB 82/83 magazines.

This is important to me since I do use the vz 82 for CCW.

I use one of my 82's for carry, and if I can't get a mag to run consistently, it's junk to me. I've been lucky to only have bought the crossed swords mags. I had one that would not feed the last round sometimes, the lips were too wide. Even after I fixed it, it wasn't a carry mag. If you have to take a new mag and fix it to run, will you ever trust it? I won't. In the heat of the moment I want to know for sure that my rig is as good as possible. Listen to what people have to say about what works and what doesn't. Then when you step out, you've done all you can do. Enjoy
