just looking for mp5 mags.
The short 15 rounders are very cool or 30 round POF or mP5 marked mags

Let us know how they work. I got rid of my straight ones because they malfunctioned a lot. Curved ones work well in my gun [semi-auto], so a few extras might be in order at that price. ;)

Just picked up some from a gunbroker seller.
Then 10 minutes later I get an email from center fire systems. I never check there for anything.
I should have.
15$ each

I don't know anything about Korean magazines, but German, Turkish, and Pakistani mags look and run perfectly. I only use 15 and 30 rounders. They both load perfectly without the need of a loading tool.



I've had my Fleming RR PP MP5 for 27 years and it never misses a beat.

I had probably 8 MP-5s that we used for "work" and currently have 5 or so on hand . All are real FA guns. We never had a lick of trouble with the straight mags, and used them for training and drills. The curved mags seem to handle the HP ammo better. We had a few ( very few) stove pipes with HPs that I would attribute to the mags. Never really used the 15 rd ( no point to them for us) but I never really had trouble with them either. We had some 40 rders, but they did not fit our webgear well, and there did not seem to be a real tactical advantage. If you want to really cook up your MP-5, do Beta dumps. I think I still have one of those beta mags here somewhere...... Wall Brick Room Wood Airsoft gun

I've tried 9mm Beta mags in my MP5s. But, they're just too heavy and bulky for my liking. I swapped out the mag towers on those Betas and now use them with 9mm M16 setups. They're still bulky, but they feel somewhat less so with M16s.

With the ease is swapping out an mp5 barrel I can not see how anyone could justify a beta mag.

Too bulky and not too interesting

Im so envious.

I fire thousands of fifty cal and MK19 rounds a year. I spend time with M249's, M240's and M320 grenade launchers as well.

Yet..........ALL I WANT TO SHOOT is a MP5. Im so infatuated with that little gun.

Personally would prefer my M249 for up close and personal work. I keep a different outlook on the various MGs - They are all fun to shoot, but I have had the opportunity to use them in sort of tacti-cool situations which gives a guy a little different outlook.

Aw that's just not fair to have that many real toys. :( Although I at least have one of the select fire Rugers to play with here.....it's a small start. (chuckle) Nice collection.
