    There is a lip inside the mag housing of the fox that if you file down these will fit

    NW, I have altered CZ mags to Fox before, no big job. The 'slot' in the side needs to be deepened with a file till it's just right. then the rear stop lip I think it is, needs to be equally filed down, once you reach the magic stop points the fox will click into place perfectly and away you go. do the job as finding a fox mag is like hens teeth.

    Before you get the rat-tail file out I'd be interested in this as is. I'm assuming from the pic. that this will fit a lefthand CZ527 in .223.

    The generic '5-shot magazine Part No.' for .204/.222/.223 cals. on CZ-USA is 5273 - 1051 - 6409ND.

    Yours is 5273 - 1051 - 4009ND labelled 222 Rem, but I believe it'll mate with mine.

    See how ambitious you feel?
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    The customer wants an "original" part so I will let him do some looking around before I broach the subject of making one fit. I had suggested that this would probably work but now I have confirmation I will let him come to the same conclusion - there are no Brno Fox mags to be had, you are quite right. Most CZ527 parts are interchangeable with the Fox and if they aren't it appears to me that with a little effort they can be made to fit.
    Thanks for the help.

    Would this be too big for 22hornet?.

    These are .223 rounds.
    The magazine 'engagement latch slot' looks shorter and deeper in mine, which is the fit problem you're having.

    The max. OAL (round length) is 2.320"/59mm in mine, and the retaining lips are 1.240"/32mm long.... which might be the difference.

    Both look identical.The .222 and .223 are so similar that I'm surprised there are different magazines for each, but I'm sure CZ know what they're doing.

    Thanks for checking.

    Actually, no. I have a 527 Hornet myself and the difference between this mag and that for the Hornet is a spacer at the back of the mag.
