    Hi anyone know what the differences are between the MP5 and MP7 magazines? I got talked into getting a Echo1 VSS Igor but the mags for it are said to be junk. I have found a 3d printed magazine adaptor for the rifle but it uses MP7 aeg Mags, they seem hard to find. But MP5 mags are all over and I'm wondering if I could use these, If theres another adaptor out there for them?
    Thanks for the replies. The mags look the same online and i haven't seen them inperson. Yes i did find the MP7 on Evike but i thought i might try to find them in Canada, ah. . Again thanks for the comments.

    Definitally wont be able to use MP5 mags. MP7 AEG mags arent that hard to find. Theyre pretty cheap actually. Iirc there are some on evike.

    They aren't cross compatible. That's strange that they'd use Mp7 mags instead of Mp5 mags.

    No, you can't use the mp5 mags.... Lmao. Different caliber, shape, curve, thickness, etc.
