I, myself, do not use and trust the 14 round mags on a Rami! More nose diving . I tried cleaning the mags, using the +10  pound mag, etc. So I jyst stay away and just use the 10 round rounds that is just so reliable.


Unlike the CZ75s, the Rami feed ramp is pretty steep at the bottom, which could hang up and cause a jam, especially if the bullets you're using are flat or have a sharp edge around tip / hollow point. 

Barnes Tac XP bullets can stick on the bottom of the feed ramp, especially if the mag springs are getting weak. The +10 mag springs seem to have fixed that problem for me, so far, but am considering coating the bullet tips with magazine lube to keep them slick and sliding up the feed ramp.

I had similar issues with HST's and their sharp leading edge catching the bottom of the feed ramp, but only with the 14 rd mags.  Going to extra power magazine springs and 124 gr +P Gold Dots made my RAMI BD 100% with the 14 rounders.

Actually, after I had one hang up in the RAMI with a Barnes Tac XP bullet the other day, even with the heavier springs, I'm switching over to the "new" Corbon DPX 115gr all copper HP, which has a more rounded, easier feeding tip than the flat, sharp-edged Barnes bullet. Corbon used to load the Barnes Tac XP in their DPX line, but recently changed to a bullet of their own design. I haven't tested it in pork shoulders yet or seen any ballistic gel tests, but hopefully, being a solid copper HP bullet, it will have the same superior penetration (through bone, etc.) as the Barnes bullet.

The best advice i ever got was to use the kimber ultra carry .45 (wolff springs part 51818) recoil springs in the 9mm rami.  The outer spring adds just enough force to the guide rod assembly system to do away with FTFs.    It also decreased the Felt recoil for me.

That and wolff always has them in stock unlike the actual cz springs

Has anyone given the Taran base plate a shot? If so, I would like to see your findings.

Thanks,

So, I just got a Sphinx Subcompact last week. Looks like a smallish, CZ PO7, except aluminum with poly grip, the slide is a dead ringer for the P07. P07 mag looks similar but is fatter by a smidgen. Got me to thinking. I can get just a full grip on this and it holds 13 rounds. I think a Poly version as a P07 sub would rock. The weights are so similar between my P07, and Sphinx sub differing by only an ounce.

Figured I’d post this up - haven’t seen it anywhere else, and I must have missed THarbison’s post:

Taran Tactical +2 baseplate on the RAMI 10rd mag.  It adds approximately the same amount of length as the Pierce extension, but gives +1 capacity (+2 if you file down the bottom of the follower a bit).

Thanks for the image. Somehow I missed this post earlier. Looks really sweet!
I actually like the 10 round mags with pinkie locked underneath. Like squeezing a potato it holds very firm at least for me.  I have a P-01 if I want something larger. But I have to admit the Taran +2 might just be the ideal combo.

The reason why there are no 11 or 12 round mags for the Rami is due to the fact that:

a) the Rami can take any CZ75 magazine.

b) there are already a lot of 14 round mags in existence and being made for the CZ75 Compact models.

c) 14 rounds > 11 or 12 rounds.



BINGO!

I'm happy with carrying a 10 rounder for concealment and having a 15 rounder for backup.

However, I would like to see Mec-gar upgrade the 10 rounders to the newer blue follower anti-friction design.

Love these on my SP-01 and P-01 pistols.
