X Products 50rnd X-5 MP5 Drum Magazine At HKPARTS

Over a year into the transfer process of my TPM Outfitters MP5SD, I have yet to start stock piling magazines. For one, H&K magazines aren’t the most affordable on the market and two there are a couple of polymer options in the works that I am hoping to review before committing to a ‘German vs U.S. made’ plan. X Products just has added yet another mag option for the MP5 platform: the X-5 50 round drum magazine.

Until recently I had considered drum magazines to be too big and heavy for any platform except for those blessed with select fire capabilities. But 50 consecutive quiet shots from the SD sounds like a lot of fun. MSRP for the new magazine shows $249 and although it shows out of stock on the X Products site, HKPARTS.net has a certain amount of stock for immediate sale and shipping.




XProducts X-5 Magazine 50 Round Drum For HK MP5 & MP5K 9mm – HKPart.net

You asked for it so X Products has delivered, the long awaited and highly anticipated X-5 MP5 50 Round Drum Magazine designed for your favorite MP5 or MP5 clone. The X-5 is engineered around our proven coil magazine technology which allows side by side staging of ammunition in a single stack.

Due to our patented tension relief device, the X-5 can operate for an almost unlimited number of spring loads and can even perform in weapons with capabilities of up to 800-900 rounds per minute. The streamlined design allows for zero separation of the ammunition during operation which prevents malfunctions and allows for an exceptionally compact profile.

The X-5 holds 50 rounds of 9mm in a shorter and more compact manner than the standard 30 round magazine.

The critical components of the mechanism are coated in Cerakote™ for friction reduction and proven reliability without the need for lubrication.

    Their mags are built like a tank, and you’ll enjoy it for sure.

  • JSmath

    It looks like the front is metal but not the feedlip(s)? That kinda makes me sad, for $250.

    • SGT Fish

      looks like blued steel with fingerprints to me

      • SGT Fish

        and the bodies on these things are usually aluminum. this is no magpul product

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      99% sure they are steel feedlips. But I will clarify.

      • Madsen

        Purchased two – bodies are aluminum with steel (or at least magnetic) feedlip assembly. Operating wheel feels like plastic which is slightly disappointing, though the overmolded rubber gripping surface is nice.

        One loads to the full 50 rounds, feels maybe a little rough – suspect will smooth with use. The second will only load 30 to 32 rounds before cannot load more – will take it apart this weekend to see what’s up.

        For all that, they are nice and compact and I hope they work as advertised.

    Wasn’t the owner of this company (HK parts) awaiting sentencing? Good job to whoever is keeping the ship afloat.

    here are some more detailed pics of my mp5 drum i just received in the mail…for those wanting to see the feed lips better.

    i havent shot it yet.

    feels solid though.
    wish it were higher cap than just 50 though. 75 (like suomi converted drum) would have rocked.
