    Default WTB: MP5 30 rd Straight Magazine Springs

    I have two of the original 30 round straight magazines.
    Getting failure to feed last two rounds. Think they may need new springs.

    I’m only seeing springs specified for the curved magazines on HKParts and RTG.
    Any tips on a source for the straight magazine springs?

    Thanks!

    From the data:

    b) different followers--- early/straight magazines (plastic- right hump) and later/curved
    magazines (chromed- left hump); early magazine springs on early/straight magazines,
    and later magazine springs on later/curved magazines; later magazine springs on
    early/straight magazines need modification of loops at top

    Another member had the same question a while back, but I could not find his post in the Advanced Search--- maybe he will comment.

    And the springs are physically different:
    Older straight mags have round spring; current curved mags have oval springs.
    The Followers are shaped accordingly to accept the corresponding springs, so they aren’t interchangeable.
