Beretta 92 mag. base plates fit well.
« on: October 16, 2012, 10:28:35 PM »
I was less then trilled with the base plates on the mags of my 75 Compact. It would dig into my little finger. So I did some searching and discovered that the Beretta 92 plates fits. Did the trick for my Compact. The plate on the 83 does not stick out in the front the way the one on the compact does, so it's much more comfortable. But, the Beretta plate also fits the 83 mag. It's not perfect but it does fit nicely, and gives you just that little extra which is nice. The plates are hard plastic so they won't catch on clothing for CC. And they are only $4.80 each from Brownells.com.

the Beretta base are nice but I prefer the CZ 75 rubber mag base. In the picks above you can see a gap between the mag base and the grip it is not a big deal but I prefer the better fit of the CZ mag base. I want to point out that I swapped the main spring plug (the part with the lanyard loop) to the smaller CZ 83 plug it allows more room for the mag base and I think looks better but I don't think you have to change it to make the base fit

That is a nice fit. Which gun is that? Yeah, as I said the fit is not perfect, but it's not bad.

Which gun is that?

It's a CZ 82.  You can tell by the lanyard loop on the main spring plug.  The CZ 83 (and now geen's CZ 82) has no lanyard ring.

I believe the CZ 75 P-01 also has a lanyard ring, but the lower part of the trigger guard (in the upper left of the photo) says it has to be a CZ 82 (or 83 with an 82 main spring plug).

I ordered two Berratta's and two Cz's. I figured I see for myself. The Berrata's are definately less expensive.

They do fit well but I will have to pretty much take off the lanyard stud. No probem for me. I hope they function well after the mod.

I just ordered a CZ 83 main spring plug from CZ usa and it fits perfect and looks good. But thats the one in my pic. I must have been an old CZ 83 main spring plug that had a loop because it is not the aluminum one that came on my 82. see wikipedia link (its wikipedia it cant be wrong)

How dificult is it to change the main spring plug? Will i hurt anything by just removing the lanyard lug?

You would have to grind off the lanyard loop as it is your main spring plug.  So all you want to do is swap then out. Take off the grips and remove the pin that holds the plug in place (watch out as the plug is under pressure form the spring and will shoot across the room). You need to put the plug against a table or workbench to remove the pressure form the spring so you can remove the pin) once the pin is out put on the new plug and compress the plug/spring I just used my workbench and when you get it compressed enough put in the pin and you good to go.

I've seen no use for a lanyard since the cavalry gave up horses, so I ground the lanyard ring off when I refinished my 82. Depending on the year made, the base may be either steel or aluminum.

Fox,

A lanyard loop-less main spring plug costs $9 at CZ-USA.

I'm keeping my lanyard loop.  If I run out of bullets the loop makes for a skull-crushing pistol whip.

Sarge,

Don't modern modes of cavalry tranport ever buck?

Just prior to the infamous FBI Miami shootout, one agent's handgun, which was in his lap in preparation for engagement, fell out the car door after colliding with the bad guys.  A lanyard would have put him in action much more quickly.

The  lanyard lug came off very easy with the Dremel tool. Both the Beratta and base plates fit perfectly with no gaps . The mags function well. I'am using the thin metal baseplate mags. I'am leaving the thick metal baseplates as is. I'am going to cut the lanyard lug off  my other Cz today. Thanks for the info.

I found that when I put the CZ 75 base on the CZ 82 mag that had the larger aluminum base that it left a gap like on the CZ 83 pictured above and when you swap them with the 82 mags with the thin mags base they fit snug.
