Ran across a CZ 75 B this weekend, cheap at $315, but didn't buy it. It came with 5 mags.

Question is, at least two of the mags were nearly cut in half with a very narrow slit from the front and back leaving only about 3/8ths intact in the middle. Cut looked to have been factory or professionally done.
Anyone seen mags like this or know why they would be cut like that?

That was a fantastic price on that 75 B MAINER.
Too bad you didn't bite.
I have no idea why the magazines would have been cut.

Don't want ya to feel badly for me, picked one up like this later the same day;

Looks just like that, but mine has 14 rd mags. In 95+ condition, but no box or documents, maybe later. Traded my Bersa Thunder 9 and some cash. Has a much better feel to it. My first CZ pistol, have a 550FS rifle in 6.5x55 to go with it.

Several comments on the innernet about CZ factory mags kinda suk! :|

Congrats MAINER.
The cut up CZ 75B mag issue I guess is now moot ?
CDNN had some good prices on MECGAR mags.
I didn't check for the CZ compact mags.

10 round Clintoon ban mags. They were cut that way to ID them as 10 rounders & also break into if somebody was to try to modify them back into the standard capacity of 15/16 rounds. You should have snagged that CZ75B up for that price!!!!!!!! I just picked up a PCR a couple of days ago mysef.

I might have picked it up if it looked more like this one;

The one I saw wasn't real pretty. Mechanically good, but finish was rough.

Was looking something more comfy to carry and I'm not a big fan of the 9MM parabellum anyway.
If I tote a full-sized pistol, it will be a 1911 and in .45 cal.

Thanks for the info, hadn't seen mags cut like that before.
