    Just got an American tactical drum and the spring will not tighten? When I turn the key I can feel something slipping. It's not the key. Anyone know a fix?

    It must be a defect, i had a chinese one and it was junk! The guide ran directly into the second row of rounds so i canned it i said screw drums for the ak i stick to good old 40rd banannas

    The rotor latch some times sticks in these things. Did you put some light oil in it.;)

    Nah it was that metal guide that seperates row one and two, bent into the second row so the bullets ran into it instead of along it! Gahhhh!!!

    I've had two 75 round Chinese Norinco drums for over 20 years. NEVER had a problem with either one of them.
