I am looking for mags for a SW5 and want to know which is better the straight or curved? And are the Asian contract mags any good? Also where do you guys buy them from?
Thanks in advance

Always purchase German curved MP5 magazines. You will not be sorry.

Some say POF are good to, but for the price difference, go with the German ones.

Thanks for the info from what I have read they seem to be the only reliable ones.
Where is a good place to purchase them?

Hey AZ, if you need some German mags let me know, drop me an IM and I will quote ya a price.

You should try these guys for some good prices.

1. Adam Webber : amw500@hotmail.com

2. Josh @ Clyde Armory : josh@policeguns.com

3. Gordon Miller : gm1854@aol.com

Adam may have some nice used HK German mags.
Josh will have new and used mags for good prices.
Gordon has new LEO marked HK German mags for around 62 bucks each.

These are the best options I can come up with now. They will all do you right.

The POF mags are really nice, but 50 bucks is high when you can get HK mags for 62....JMO
Athough, if you buy 8 or more mags from POF you will only pay 40 bucks each for them. If
you could find someone to half an 8 pack with you, then you will have a pretty good deal on
some great mags. If you want to half an 8 pack let me know, I might go in halfers with you.
Check them out here : POF-USA (MP5 mags)

Oh and for the other questions.... Go curved. Straight mags "may" have some feeding problems.
Asian mags seem to work fine for some and not so fine for others... hit and miss with those too.

Good luck.

I have both and have never had a problem with either.
Some people say its easier to reload with the straight ones but there is no diff. for me.

I would advise being very carefull about the 40 (some now sold as 34 rd) round curved.
Had several of those and had to rework half of them to get them to function.

I bought some of the asian 34rd mags, and the follower stick until they broke in, but now work fine.
I also bought some straight mags from I/O and they have been flawless.
They were cheap also @$59.95 for three with a pouch
