Have you contacted Caspian directly?  They had mags recently on their Foster accessories page but their inventory varies.  Maybe they can export or lead you to someone local in the Netherlands?

They will get back to you, but in the mean time, what about MBX, that's what I use. Yes, they're expensive, but they work.

I just talked to Caspian, they arnt making mags and dont have any. They told me to use Tanfoglio large frames. I just sold all my 38's as I was switching frame to 45 and needed 45 acp tubes.
Does your friend have any caspian mags ? If so it is really obvious what you have to do to get the Tanfoglios to work.  Take the top end off and put the Tanfoglio mag in the gun, you will see the little corner on the front of the tube that is hitting. Just needs to have a small section on the front of the feed lip cut down a hair so it will lock in.

I had a Caspian in 40 and I couldn't get the Caspian magazines to function, at all. I bought 3 from EAA directly for $75 and trimmed them, installed Grams springs and followers and I never had any issues. I wouldn't water any time waiting for Caspian. I do really like their basepads, but they haven't had any of those available forever..

I have Caspian mags in 9mm, 38 super, .40 and 10mm. They are converted EAA tubes with Grams spring and followers.

I build all the Dan Wesson Elite series 1911s, high cap (Caspian) pistols and have used these magazines for years.
I can not send them out of the US. Email me at krebaum@sbcglobal.net and I can send you an information sheet.

Those of you converting the EAA mag to work in the caspian, are those the same mags as the mecgar?

I tried converting mecgar mags and with the stock base pad on, I couldn’t get them to lock in, and I did cut them down to the point I was afraid they wouldn’t hold up

Yes EAA and Mecgar are the same. There is a little more to it then some say to get it right. You have to machine the right side to the proper depth to have the mag sit at the proper height. You need to machine- the left side for the slide stop, the very top rear notch so the slide does not hit, the mag catch height and the feed lips depending on the caliber. You also need the caspian style base pads. Like I said, I have mag bodies, Grams spring/followers, base pads for these. I have converted around 1000 of these mags.

I do not stock the 45 mags, I do not like them, they do not stack properly. I have done some for people they seem to work for them with std basepads 10rnds.

@krow makes good stuff. I've got a couple of his followers for my gun and they've worked well.
