I also have a P07 with the magazine issue.  It seems to be getting worse on all three magazines.  Also, the rounds rattle when I shake the magazines.  I've never run into this before with a handgun.  I'm a long time CZ fan but I'm not sure about the P07. 

I've also experienced a higher than normal number of FTFs and stovepipes during break-in...with various brands of ammo.  The mags could be the culprit for the FTFs...but the stovepipes???

It is, however, pleasingly accurate.....

Anyway, CZ just sent me a Fedex label...I'll let them try to straighten everything out.

Best way, let the factory get the bugs out. Rattling magazines is almost normal for me with any handgun, a completely full mag will rattle slightly, and the rattle disappears one round down. Some get it, some don't, no idea why.
Good luck!

Bought a new P-07 8/03/09. Functioned flawlessly - except for the magazine drop issue.  Called CZ USA spoke with Scott ( SUPERB Customer Contact!! ). Scott provided an RMA and even arranged shipping through FEDEX.  I was told about a week.  Yeah, it should have been right out of the box.  That's an issue at the factory. Since CZ-USA has limited impact on the factory's QA?QC protocols I can't complain at all about CZ-USA's response.  CZ-UB needs to tighten up though.  That's just dead wrong!!  I'd buy another one but validate the Magazine drop issue before I signed the paperwork.  I bought it at Gander Mountain and of course their position was "we'll ship it out for you"  I prefer to have control over any matter that directly affects the outcome of a process.  I could just imagine GM leaving the thing sitting around for a couple of weeks. After all, they have little or no meat in the game when it comes to the warranty repair.

  The take away...CHECK EACH P-07 FOR A CLEAN MAGAZINE DROP BEFORE PURCHASE!!!!!!!

CZ75BRocks,
CZ has had my gun for 2 weeks now and I was told by post card it would take 6 weeks.  Don't take the  week promise to heart.  There appears to be a frame issue as well.  Look at the post about "Going Back", as it has pictures of the bulging frame.  I'm going to guess that we will all get new guns that will hopefully be resolved of their problems.  Several others have gotten new guns for just the magazine issue, so it would only make sense to replace the ones with bigger issues.  Just my opinion though.

thanks for the reply AM. I saw another post that said the holster for G19 worked but when tested by another member he said it didn't... maybe just that style. Also I have seen the 2 Duty holsters on the CZ site AND would go for the open end/with paddle but that doesn't seem to be a choice even though it is on their website.... I just recently became a proud CZ owner and can only say good things regardless of the mag issue.

i got an HK holster and it works great..."its a plastic paddle"....also the sig 250 will work in some leather apps....i also had the mag issue but for some reason my cz75 mag works just fine...hummmm

My mags drop free full and empty, and they rattle slightly when completely full. DANG, that last round is a bear!  ;D That should clear up after some use, though, same as my old Witness mags waaaay back in the day.

Hi  I am new here. I have been looking to buy a handgun for the first time. I have been looking at different pistols on here and the CZ P07 caught my eye. I have been reading all the good and bad points on alot of guns. I went to Cabela's yesterday to check out the P07 duty.  looks and feels like a nice gun.When I tried the mag release I had a hard time moving it. When I did get it to move the mag hardly droped. This is one of the problems I have been hearing about.I have read that newer serial numbers don't have this problem. I have the new numbers writen down. I was thinking of asking them if they have one in that range before I buy one. Just looking for some feed back from someone who knowes more about this then I do. Thanks

My P07 ejected mags flawlessly until I shot a hundred rounds through her at the range. No failures to feed or eject and was a hoot to shoot, but the mags stopped dropping freely all the time. I did not think it was a big deal to pull out a mag and stick a new one in with the same hand, but YMMV. After shooting a .357 mag GP100 and an 8 shot .45 for so long, the 16+1 rounds before a reload was pretty sweet.

  I received my P-07 back from CZ-USA todayThank you Scott!!. New gun!!   I explained to Scott that I go to the Sandbox Wednesday 8/12/09. Took it out and ran 500rds through it. No burp, no stutter, perfect Magazine drop.  I kept the original magazines from the first gun.  They worked perfectly.  It's a shame that CZ-USA has to pick-up the slack for CZ-UB but it is what it is. This was going to be my wife's gun.  That's changed, this is now my oh sh*t gun while on the job.  My full time sidearm is a SP-01 in 9mm.  When I get back from this gig I'll get a Shadow.  The Land O' Sand is tough on Metal guns.  The Polymers seem to just "laugh" at the Sand and keep working. Of to work.

Had a bad magazine right out of the box.  Sticking and the spring in one might be bad.  The one still in the baggie and oil was just fine.

That said, if you notice the distinct "round rattle" at about the 5-10 round range on filling the magazine, you may have a bad magazine spring (it can be a typical rattle for these though), you'll know if you have feeding problems.  This was a notorioius problem with the Baretta M-9 pistols while I was deployed.  Once you started hearing that tell-tale rattle, it was time to get a replacement.

This type of issue can actually allow rounds to nose-down (usually) when firing.  The follower doesn't go up fast enough to keep up with the stripped round and the rounds below start tipping over (nosing down).  I managed to get the bad mag to do this by hand cycling it.

Does anyone know exactly what CZ-USA is doing to correct the sticking magazine problem?
To clairfy, not what they're doing for us individually, but what they're physically doing to magazines to correct the problem or what the actual source of the problem is.

My mags have become hit-and-miss on if they stick and it's frustrating the heck out of me.

I don't know what it is they are doing, but I do know it is a major issue for them, and they are trying to resolve it, last time I asked.
