Where to find a 5 shot 303 mag

Can any one point me in the right direction to find a 5 shot 303 mag for a mk4 (2) 303?

There is a british website that sells new ones but they are currently out if stock.

I could get a 10 shot mag cut down, but would prefer to find one already done.

They were a feature of the Parker Hale tarted up rifles. Probably as rare as hens teeth unfortunately.

Based in New Plymouth, but travel between there and the Hawkes Bay regularly.

Riflemags.co.uk have newly manufactured 5 & 10 shot mags listed on their website, but are currently out of stock.

if you have access to a 3d printer, when I was trying to choose what way I wanted to go with a delisle carbine build I saw a few designs for 5 round and flush fitting magazines.
also a 20 rounder   Cheesy

A 20 round clip could be fun, but why stop there.
It would make for a fun mad minute if I don't have to reload
