Whats the best/dependable drum for the AK ?
 
Looking to buy a 75 rd drum for my AK.. What's the best one to get? I'm looking at a Romanian top loading drum..

I would try to find a Chinese if you could, expect to pay 75-100$ now though. They seem to work best in my experience.

The guy at my LGS gets em in every now an then an sells em for 100. Not sure about online, I don't buy online so I don't look so could be more.
All the same if your trying to find high quality drums i would spend the extra an get chinese or russian

The korean ones work. Ive got one and it seems to work fine. Just dont wipe the innards down removing the grease from whatever you get they need it to run. Skip any top loaders they are junk.

Chinese are hard to find. Next best thing for me, as I had bought one and love it, is a Romanian 75 rd drum, as they are made in the Chinese format.

Here is about the only top loading AK drum mag for sale out there.
I bought one but haven't tried it yet.

These used to be selling for only $25 or $30 before the front loaders hit the market.

Here is a front loader for a real good price.:eek:

I have a Russian surplus top-loader for my Saiga and it has worked without issues. It was used when I bought it, picked it up from the post office on my way to SRA practice, didn't clean it, just loaded it up with 75 rounds and started running the practice session with it and didn't have any hiccups. It's a PIA to load, but it's built like a tank and I'm happy with it so far.
