Instructions for Loading:
1. Clean the heavy oil from the drum with some Gun Scrubber, you will need to re-oil it when loaded for proper feeding.
2. Release the 2 cover latches at the top to open the cover.
3. Push the locking/unlocking shaft with firm, sharp pressure using your thumb to release any pressure on the main spring, please use caution when releasing spring.
4. With the locking shaft still depressed, wind the spindle clockwise until the follower returns to the beginning of the spiral to release the shaft.
5. Load 5 rounds of your ammo, point-down, into the top of the drum along the largest diameter of the drum, just under the tower, loading in a clockwise direction.
6. Firmly hold the spindle to add two clicks in a clockwise direction using the small winding ke.
7. Slowly release the spindle and allow the 5 rounds to load into the tower.
8. Turn the spindle clockwise and remove 2 of the last rounds loaded and continue to turn the spindle clockwise until it returns to the end of the spiral track (starting position) and add those 2 rounds into the top of the drum in the same place you just loaded the first 5 rounds.
9. The spindle will be locked in position and you can release it and continue loading until 75 rounds are in the drum.
10. Close the cover and secure the latches.
11. Use the main winding key and turn it about 6 good turns or clicks. As you turn the key, you will hear and feel the spring as it clicks, over-winding is not recommended.

Please note if you are loading to put the drum in storage for future use, do all the loading, but only wind the main key 1 or 2 clicks to keep pressure on the loaded ammo. Save the winding till you are ready to fire.

3.0 Rating ok for the price - 12/27/2009
Reviewer: joe grizzly
I got one for Christmas and had to file a bit off of the back for it to fit in my WASR 10 AK. It looks like it may be because the part of the drum that catches the mag release is spot welded instead of being cast as a whole. As long as it works it was worth saving 60 dollars compared to other drums. I will write another review as soon as i get it out to the range and test it out, if it works correctly it will get 5 stars.

5.0 Rating Great Drum - 12/27/2009
Reviewer: CLC
I recently bought one of these drums and finally got around to trying it out. I fired around forty rounds at a fast pace and had no jams or malfunctions whatsoever. The instructions provided with the drum proved to be satisfactory and easy to follow. Five to ten minutes proved to be more than enough to learn the functioning of the drum as a whole. For the price considering one could pay well over $200+ for a like capacity drum I say it is well worth it.

4.0 Rating Drum Mag - 1/24/2010
Reviewer: Coop
I just received my Drum Mag this past week and took it to the range this morning. The drum arrived with easy to follow instructions and only required minimum cleaning from the factory. I shot about 55 rounds and it worked without a flaw. I'm very satisfied with the purchase and the price was excellent.

5.0 Rating xellent performer - 1/31/2010
Reviewer: patriot
I ordered this and it arrived on time. I loaded and unloaded it several times when at full capacity. To my surprise I had no problems. The Romanians really know their designs and they work well. I took it out to the range and it worked as it should. I am Very pleased with the results. It’s nice to see that cheaper than dirt do stick by their customers and really try to keep the lowest prices available to us the consumers out there. That’s why I gave it 5 bullets. The name says it all C T D.
