If you say one's straight and one's curved I will put a voodoo curse on you.

Originally the mags were straight. With the rise of hollowpoint 9mm, it was discovered that the straight mags didn't feed HP well at all. And lo, the curved mag was born.

The other difference is that straight mags look dumb.

I think I'm gonna buy some of each. I will be using a lot of ball, but my subguns chow down mostly on SXT's and HydraShocks. I have YET to have a SINGLE hiccup with my Tec9 that everyone warned me would be a jammomatic. About 1000 rounds down her so far, perfect condition, very little wear, ZERO failures of any kind. Love that gun. RRA 9mm eats same ammo, and my incoming '94 will too!

I madea return to natchez once and I thought they were talking about a 40 dollar item, instead I had also returned a 500$+ item. SO i just told the operator instead of a return, just send me equal value of SXT's. She asked if I was sure, which should've tipped me off, but I wasn't thinking. NExt week I get almost 2000 rounds of 9mm SXT's. Sometimes I think I got the RRA just to help me burn through that!

I actually like the look of the strait mags in my mp5. I also liked the price when tapco had them for 9.99 each.

I have 3 of the straight mags (from IO) and three curved asian mags, and the asian have been perfect, absolutly no probs, the straight mags work great with ball, but suck with HP.

I was under the impression that the curved mags were for the 9mm and the straight mags were for the 10mm and 40mm versions.

There are straight and curved 9mm mags.

.40 SW (40mm would be a big subgun) and 10mm only come in straight. Something to do with the way the round is shaped.

A bonus question for 5 points....why is the magwell canted? The SW45 conversion was initially with a magwell feeding a modded GG mag. The second series uses a canted magwell as per the rest of the family.

Colt SMGs run stright mags so do they suck with HPs?

Inter Ord dropped the price to $49 for a set of 3 with pouch and cleaning kit. I bought some at $59
Mine were in great shape pouch was kind of nifty. Double belt loops and a hook to hang by a clip.
All of mine worked fine with FMJ. Got some extra cleaing kits for sale!
