CZ75B Rubber Magazine Pads




Have any of you tried the CZ75B 9mm Rubber Magazine Bumper pads on a HP Magazine? http://shop.cz-usa.com/P-27319900085...-Base-Pad.aspx Thank you for your time.

I haven't tried those. They seem a bit pricey. I've used Beretta 92 plastic base pads (the ones made and sold by Beretta - MecGars M 92 plastic base pads won't work) and they work just fine. If I remember correctly, they went for under $5.

1st attempt.

I tried some CZ pads this morning. they work fine, they insert fine, they look goofy! The stick out over the front strap reminiscent of a Wlather PPK extended magazine. They work fine, they slide on to and lock in place perfectly, but the look??????

Deadman,

Merry Christmas!

The Beretta base pads are plenty durable and lock in place like the FN base pads too.

My main purpose for using them though, is to eliminate the sharp corners of the base plates that were shredding the linings of my jackets.
Like the CZ pads, they stick out in front of the mag like a balcony on a whore house, but they DO eliminate the sharp corners.

I found an old Ram Line HP base pad somewhere and the plastic base pad from that fits the Browning/MecGar tubes and conforms to the contours of the front strap of the HP. It's the only Ram Line pad I have found though and I doubt that I shall find any more.
