Where to buy nickel 11155 mags


Recommended Posts

I've dry fired enough that my regular black mags are not dropping free regularly, so I'm going to keep them as dry fire only and get some nickel mags for matches. Some local shooters have said that they have experienced 2 different nickel mags, and that some of them performed worse than the black. Where should I pick up some genuine CZ mags? The genuine cz mags have 9mm and 40 stamped on each side, I figured those would work best. Some websites have them listed under the part number mgcz11155 which makes me think those are the mec-gar equivalents.


Can anyone shed some light on this?

How does dry fire ruin a mag? Do you mean by repeatedly dropping them?


CZ-USA has both the 11155 (17rd) and 11161 (19rd): https://shop.cz-usa.com/cz-products/pistols/magazines/full-size


That said, the nickel one's are $43 vs the $25 Mec-Gar MGCZ7517AFC ones which are also OEM depending on which gun you get, available here: https://benstoegerproshop.com/mec-gar-cz-sp-01-shadow-2-9mm-17-round-magazine-mgcz7517afc/ or here: http://gregcotellc.com/cart/cz-factory-mecgar-actmag-c-173/cz-75b-cz-85b-cz-75-sp01-cz-shadow-2-17-rd-9mm-mgcz7517afc-p-591.html


IDK if the nickel ones are any better except maybe prettier?

The anti friction coating has been scraped off most of the outside surfaces from lots of reloading practice, so even when freshly cleaned they like to hang up in the gun, this wasnt a problem when new.


The shooters I talked to said that the nickel ones hold up better over time, they have smoother gliding feeling when inserting. and seem to drop free more consistently.


My issue was there are apparently both CZ and mec-gar nickel ones available for that $43-ish price range and wanted to know if anyone else can comment on them.
