Hi, i'm needing help finding quality metal 5 round or nearly flush fitting magazines. trying to find magazines that look like all metal colt 20 round but short..

all i find is 20 round mags that are cut off and have a ugly plastic lower. or all plastic molded ribbed and ugly.
does anyone make anything like what i'm looking for? thanks

Never seen one. How would you pull it out if you needed to if it was flush?

I think the mag you are talking about is like one that I have. It is flush next trigger guard and about 1/2" sticking out of lower receiver opposite the trigger guard. The lower is cut at a angle at mag well and the magazine is straight on bottom. Not sure actually who made it, given to me by a friend. He said it came with a dpms he bought

This company sells them. http://www.ammoclip.com/C/colt_5_round.htm Never tried them, but I do like the 10 round mags.

fathead, thats sounds like what i'm looking for. the bottom is angled and fits flush on one side and sticks out just enuff to get a grip on it. I have only seen them in pictures on some AR's and on many AR-10's but don't think those would work on an AR-15. so far the only short mags ive found are colt, dpms a few others but they look kinda cheap, they look like 2 piece mags cut in half and looks like plastic lower on a normal 20 round mag i don't know if the lower is plastic or metal but they just don't look nice to me.

Timanator thos mags look like what i'm looking for, the 5 rd pro mag looks just like what i want but i'm not sure on the length, i'll try finding out more on it.the 5 and 10 rd pro mags look same length as 20rd mag. the colt 5 rd is the nicest design ive seen yet for the plastic lower, it's at least not smooth and has the same look as the upper part just in plastic. to bad they don't just make the lower in metal or make it all one piece metal. thanks guys.
