Make sure they will take actual CZ mags - Armalite sells a Turk-made AR24 pistol that has good reviews, but takes an oddbag mag compatible with no other CZ, hence not interchangeable.

The Turkish Canik55 TP9 (sold by Century Arms) is actually a Walther P99 clone (the Walther P99 night sights will fit, for example), but the cut for the mag catch is slightly different than the one on the P99.

The Turkish Sarsilmaz B6P is a CZ-75 clone, while the Turkish Sarsilmaz K2P uses a SIG-type barrel lockup in the ejection port. Both the B6P and the K2P take the same mag (16 or 17 rd depending on who's talking) even though European American Armory (the importer) has a different SKU for them.

The TP9 mags are made by Mec-Gar and are so marked. The mags for the other two pistols may be made by Mec-Gar, but they are not so marked.

I'm talking only about the 9x19mmP guns here...
