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.
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. Manufactured of the highest grade materials which give it unparalleled reliability and strength. The critical components of the mechanism are coated in Cerakote™ for friction reduction and proven reliability without the need for lubrication.
Will fit any MP5, MP5SD, MP5K. Heckler and Koch, Dakota Tactical, Zenith/MKE firearms, POF-5, Omega MP5/MP5K, Other in spec clones or builds.
