EAA Witness and CZ85 Magazine Compatibility

I am acquiring a CZ 85 Combat and am wondering if the magazines from my EAA Witness 9mm are interchangeable with it. The 85 is coming with only one magazine and I'm thinking it would be good to have a second. But try finding one in this climate.......Thanks.

I'm not sure about the CZ 85, but the last time I checked, Tanfoglio-EAA magazines would not interchange with the CZ pistols, due to the magazine catch slot being in a different location.

You're probably going to have to buy CZ mags, but you never know, wait until you get the gun and try an interchange.

If the slot location is the only practical diff, you probably could carefully cut an additional slot. I know it's been done with other guns.

Problem is, the slot isn't far enough off to do that.
The slots are JUST far enough off the magazines won't interchange, but not far enough that you can just cut a new slot.

This may have changed over the years with the changes CZ and Tanfoglio have made to their guns.
