    Default Mp5 straight mag in ptr 9ct not great

    Picked up a straight mag last weekend at gun show. IH code I think mid 80’s?
    Took to range today. Shot 90 rounds through it. 1st 30 about mid way through failure to go into battery I think. Pulled trigger click nothing. Re charge and kept shooting. Next mag same thing happened twice. Last magazine. Once again in middle of mag. Also shot my curved mags with same make of bullets. Winchester nato 124 gn. Not problems.

    So I guess I will stay away from straight mags

    Straight mags have been known to be problematic. Keep with the curved...you'll be happier.
    If you can't be safe...be deadly.

    Not a huge fan of the look of the straight mags either. I feel like they look.. cheap? I dunno.

    strait mags work great in HK guns with FMJ, they usually dont work well in clones or with JHPs

    As a data point my 2 straight mags work in my Z5RS perfectly but only with FMJ. Absolutely will not feed JHPs, which work fine in curved mags. Just got them to collect anyway, the curved mags are simply better.
