Default 100 rd drum mag

With the election coming up I went ahead and bought me this 100 Rounder, I feel pretty certain that after this NY shooting and the movie theater shooting he's Goin to ban these, and have no doubt ,he will be reelected.

Not mine, but I wish it was. Notice the butterfly trigger.

Great for defending a bunker. But you'll regret not getting 30s if you have to hump it up a hill.

Yup. I personally like the idea of the surefire 60 rd Mag. They also have that in a 100 rd but its to big for my liking

Also 30s are more reliable plus you can get around ten for the price of one drum. I've been stocking up on 30s and ammo myself.

I heard that 100 rd magazines were unreliable. Usually there's more efficiency with a 75 rd drum. Don't know how true this is but many AR & AK owners claim so.

supposedly the colorado wacko had the big drums and had jams, which is why he stopped shooting when he did, and walked out, peacefully surrendering to the police. he basically ran out of ammo because his equipment jammed.

I like 30 round mags with tactical mag changes. I can carry several hundred rounds of ammo and be just as "quick" as a guy with a 100 round drum.

it is a cool novelty piece though

If that is a Korean knock off, and not a Beta-C, be sure to apply plenty of graphite to the ammunition, or you will have feeding and jamming issues, much like Holmes did......Thank God. The Beta-C Models also require graphite, but no where near as much. Also, all of them feed clean, shiny ammo better than heavily tarnished loads because of the way they operate. There is a lot of rubbing together of the rounds as they rotate out of the twin drums, up the magazine column itself, and finally into the feed lips. Most all of these work better in a full auto mode than they do semi auto......And Hussein will not be reelected.
