the mec-gars work very well for me

upon close examination; i believe them to be the same as a factory mag, without the factory badging...just an amateur opinion.

the function is flawless with all i have tried, of that i'm sure.

Mec-Gar manufactures mags for CZ now days. From my experience they "should" work fine in everything from around 1991 and newer. Check the date stamp by the ejection port to see when your CZ was manufactured.

The only MecGar's I have had a problem with were the ones that came with my CZ-75 .40. Blued steel with a plastic bottom. I have had quite a few FTF's with these mags. According to the guys at CZ Custom shop in Mesa, CZ is no longer shipping the MecGar's with the CZ-75 .40, they now use a factory mag that is all steel with a parked looking finish like an original CZ-75 9mm mag.

Carolina Slim; good point, I should have qualified my statement, all mine are 9's.

one freind of mine did have the aforementioned .40 mag; it was a ban era 10 rd mag, and it was a fail...would always jam on that mag.

The Mec-Gar 16 round 9mm mags work just fine in my 2004 dated CZ-85 Combat. As noted above the factory 9mm OEM mags are M-G's.

And so it goes.

I've been using MecGar 16 rd mags and 19 rd mags in my SP-01 for over 3000 rounds of handloads. No serious complaints. No feed problems due to magazines.

The one thing I didn't like about the 19 round tubes is the way the top front of the magazine is shaped. Unlike the 16 round mags, the 19 rounder has cuts on each side that leave a tab that sticks up presumably to keep the second round from advancing when the top round is stripped from the magazine.
To me it looked more like a hook that could catch on the front of the magwell during an aggressive magazine change (like in competition).

I trimmed the tab off all the 19 rounders and now there's nothing to complain about. The mags still work perfectly.

Yes, those are the ones. I've got a couple of MecGar 9mm 10rd Kalifornicated mags that came with my CZ-75 OD green frame "Tactical" 9 that I bought when I was still living in Pelosi's People's Republik. Have had no problems at all with those, only the .40s.
