I just found that Promag makes P5 mags. Anyone try these yet? I may pick up some for back ups as they are only $29!

I'm usually skeptical of anything but factory mags, but if you need mags, for $25, how far wrong can you go? Let us know how they run.

If you can afford a P5 you can afford Walther mags. 'Nuff said.

Don't skimp on your handguns. That's the equivalent of shoving a Pro-Mag up a
Wilson Combat 1911.

Really???

Well they are sold out. I have the two originals that come with it, but would like some extras.

OP: do yourself a favor and try to slow down, you just got the gun (or maybe it's on its way). Imaoldfart had a contact named Wolfgang who sells P5 magazines off of GunBroker. I have dealt with him in the past and he is superb to do business with. His prices are usually around the $55.00 dollar mark & minimal shipping. He apparently does not have any to offer right now, but his email is (or was) military@arcor.de

I mention the 'slow down' from experience. Hold off on any additional grips, magazines and holsters (if you were thinking that) until you get the gun, field strip it, lube appropriately and shoot it.

Please remember the old saying 'buy once, cry once'. Don't shortchange your self scrambling to put an entire P5 package together in just one week, and don't scrimp on spending a little more for the original magazines. They are engine that drives the gun.

I hope this did not come off too harsh, as that is not my intention and I would strongly suggest scrolling back through the postings in this sub-forum and the advice/answers contained therein will most likely keep you from making too many costly mistakes.

Yeah, I know. I have a OCD problem that I love to assemble all the parts to make a complete or enhanced version of something. Just really excited about finally getting the P5!

Pro Mags are better than Triple Ks, but then again so is getting a sharp stick in the eye.

Don't waste your money on them.

Which eye ,or maybe the better question would be whose eye ? BW,peruse Pilotsteve's P-38 to P-5 magazine conversion sticky that is the way to go . If you already have a P-38 the mags can do double duty . I have 8 that work great in both pistoles . Ayb

You can also look on you tube and view firydeath (I think that is his his name) any way he switched the Mag release to a p-38 type and it is like the original p5 prototype. Anyway look at that and use p38 mags. Also I use a oring at the bottom of the Mag Asa buffer. So far fiery and my self have had no problems, also I have 2900 rnd shot no problem.

What the he'll is an Asa buffer ,oh I see you use an o ring As A buffer to keep from inserting the magazine too far and abrogateing the tolerances . This doesn't make it harder to insert the magazine or keep the latch from catching ? What size and thickness of o ring do you use ? ayb
