    Heres the first issue I witnessed It was a cold week two weeks ago and magazines were already loaded up,My BIL shot all 16 rounds no issues he remove empty mag and drops 1 onto cement floor and shatters apart,he did not want to try this on his second mag I am seeing now that dropped mags are not very strong when very cold and even brittle from the very cold,it was 26 degrees.Anyone else have a similar experience,the frame is of a thicker composite but mags thinner and tend to get very brittle,the story ending is Dont Drop Your Magazines even when warmer weather prevails.

    26 degrees? Yeah, we don't see that too often down here-I'd probably shatter if I fell on the concrete!!!!!

    Give Taurus a call. They may replace the mag.

    Early model CZ had a magazine Brake for just this reason, you had to remove the magazine from the gun with your hand once it was released about halfway with the mag release!
    course you didn't loose many mags in the 3 foot of snow either.
    I don't think any of the American destined CZ have this anymore.

    Glad you're okay! And thanks for the report; did you get any pictures?

    No, unfortunately no pictures. If I had a couple hundred rounds left I'd go for it. Caviat is I NEVER shoot without safety glasses-EVER!

    Dam, dude. Why you so hard on the little Phoenix? I have one with both barrels & it is a great little shooter. Even my gun snob BIL likes it. Disconnect all of the redundant safeties & you'll find it's a nice little gun. ( UTUBE HP22 safeties)
