I'll give you a hint. If you don't see a fair number of people who have a lot of real world experience in a given subject using a particular product, it's usually because either (a.) the product hasn't been available for very long and is therefore an unknown, or (b.) the product doesn't work very well. Drum mags have been available for quite a long time so........I don't see many reviews on these
Yup, that’s about it, in my thinking....I could see their usefulness in a designated overwatch role.
Thanks. Yes, i did use duckduck go and watched an hour or so of yt videos. I have not found any yet that review the product after it being used for several thousand rounds, which would speak to its durability. That;s when I come here, to find the voices of experience. I appreciate all of your feedback.try duckduck go. It's not really any harder to type in a search than it is to start a thread for every question. There are TONS of reviews on drums for both guns.
I would empty them at the reason I had to run from before dropping them.I have a pair of Chinese 75rd windup steel AK47 drums. You can leave them fully loaded under no spring tension.
They work reliably and are fun to bring out at the end of the day when you have a new shooter and let them blast away.
Useful? Maybe from a vehicle or static position. I'd drop them if I needed to run somewhere.
They are noisy and heavy!!!
The only drum I recommend is the Romanian 75rd, the design is based off of the chinese AK drums (which were banned from importation in the 90's) there are several youtube videos showing how to load, wind and release the spring tensionI don't see many reviews on these - any suggestions? Brands and designs? Can you leave a drum fully loaded indefinitely? Do they need lubrication?
Well, I’ll circle back to how many standard capacity magazines you can purchase vs a single drum. Any platform.Thank you for your input. Given the magnitude of sheeple's stupidity and the unstable state of global affairs I have begun to rethink what protection might look like, how many people might be involved and for what length of time. I think it is time to up the ante. That is the reason I posted this question.
Thanks! I was also thinking that they might be good for bartering sometime in the not so distant future....maybe make a little profit?Drum mags are for suppressing fire in war. They are fun to shoot . Unless you are fighting banzai charges you probably wont need them. I own 4 just because.
I have drums and hicap stick mags for everything I own, but I NEVER use them. I try to own every option available for my rifles because should I need to sell them, it’s much more attractive to buyers if everything is in one package. As for me, I only shoot 10 rnds mags.Drum mags are for suppressing fire in war. They are fun to shoot . Unless you are fighting banzai charges you probably wont need them. I own 4 just because.
If that’s your thought process, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, again think on which may be easier to trade/profit.Thanks! I was also thinking that they might be good for bartering sometime in the not so distant future....maybe make a little profit?
