Can someone identify this magazine?

Bought this at Cabelas in PA. There's something wrong with it...when inserted into my CZ 75BD there's a definite hitch halfway up and LOTS of resistance, then as you can see it isn't even the same angle.

I've tried calling Cabelas CS line but they just ask I leave a message. Unfortunately I'm 4 hours from the store. BTW it's "National Magazines Inc" and labeled CZ 75 15r.

Do you have a magazine that works to compare the two?

Good am/pm to you,I bought one of those National Mag. for my 92fs and it's the same thing like yours, about 1/4 " gap and it binds also co'z instead of bluing it they decide to powder coat the thing so I stripped it and painted it w/ Aluma-Hyde from Brownells. It does not bind anymore and drops freely, I also replaced the follower and spring from my existing Pro Mag just for it to work....sad ain't it?????

I'm pretty sure that's a Beretta mag.

Thanks guys, I figured Beretta as well. It was only $12 so probably not worth trying to get my money back.

Call me crazy, or at least crazier, but it looks identical to a Bren Ten Magazine.

Can you load a 10mm Auto cartridge into it? The grip angle/configuration of a CZ-75 is pretty close.

I don't think it's for a 10mm. The 9 fits fine in it.

Is "CZ-75" STAMPED into the mag, or was the packaging just labelled as a CZ-75? It looks fairly close to a BHP mag, but I can't see enough of the floorplate to know for sure.

I'm almost positive it's for a TZ not a CZ. Slight difference in bottom plate configuration. National Mags are not know for being the best quality.

That looks a lot like the magazine for my S&W Model 59, which of course says S&W on the bottom.
