Chinese AK 100rd. Drum
Been thinking of picking up a 100rd. Drum.
Which is better the Chinese or Norico version?

If you can skip them. Find a Romainin drum. More expencive but will worth the price.

Specifically I don't know, but Norinco IS a Chinese brand/company.

Sorry if I misread what you asked.

Got my Romanian drum for $75 then get the speed loader

Nothing wrong with the Chinese drums, I got Romanian made ones.
Advantage of these drums is that you can have them fully loaded with the spring not wound up and then when you need 'em all of the sudden you can wind up the key and even shoot them when the drum is not fully wound. Other drums have to be wound up before rounds are loaded in. Check first before buying.

I have two Norinco (Chinese) 75 round drums. Top quality!:)

You can fully load them, press the spring release to take the tension off of the spring, and just wind them up when ready to fire.

IME, Chinese Ak,SKS, MilSurp ammo and equipment is superior to Warsaw Pact. The Chinese army gets the very best the country can offer. Their military is their number one priority.

Chinese made Ak-47s suck on quality

A bit off topic here, but I find it interesting that many in the US seem to consider the Norinco AKs to be some how superior to the other AKs. In Finland the Norinco AKs are considered to be the worst on the market and usually people avoid them and get Saigas and Arsenals(the Bulgarian ones) instead.
