"This magazine is great for plinking targets. However, the magazine takes time to load. My magazine does not feed correctly and jams the AK after approximately 65 rounds of use, so caution! Have fun!"
"Great mag, not for Sar-1 rifles."
"my drum shoots just fine. i especially like the ratching way of feeding the drum. you dont have to disassemble the drum to load just push the ratchet lever down an feed a bullet through the top..it hurts your thumb a little but but it beats the disassemble and winding like the others..."
"I got one of these for my MAK-90 Norenco, And I'm glad I did. This is the most fun Ive had with my AK since I got it. Once I got the right rythem down I turned everyones head at the shooting range, they though I went full auto. Never once have I got a jam. It works fine in a MAK-90, but for other AK's I dont know. Hundred and nine is allot of money but I ordered another one just because it worked so well. ( P.S. make sure you get all the cosmoline out of the drum before using it, or you could run into jam problems. They pack them for storage and are quite lubed up when you get them. A light solvent and some break free afterwards should do the trick. DO NOT LOAD THE DRUM UP WITH OIL, IT COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR RIFEL IF IT GETS ON YOUR CARTRIGES, USE COMMON SENCE.)"
"I purchased this drrum. I find it to be heavy, as expected, when loaded. It feeds well in both my Yugo AK-47 and my Yugo SKS. The only problem that I have is that I can not load more than 60 rounds in it. Try as I might, sixty rounds is about the max that I can get it to accept. Quality is very good overall inspite of only 60 rounds more or less. Enjoy!"
"I purchased this mag for use on a WASR 10 Romanian AK, and after slightly routing out the magazine well, it fit perfectly. My only complaint is that when loading it always seems to hang up upon loading the 16th round, it takes considerable effort to get the mechanism to free up to continue loading (maybe a break-in period is needed?) Other than that, no problems."

"Have one for my SAR-1, works like a champ. Sometimes it requires a bit of convincing when the ratcheting lever gets stuck every 8 rounds or so, but rocking it with my finger gets it free. Feeds flawlessly. I reccomend it to anyone who likes to power plink. Only downside is that I have been shooting a lot more, ammo has gotten expensive. I don't know why the other guy wrote that these are no good in an SAR-1, the drum is romanian, and so is the SAR-1. They were made for each other. The wasr's might need a bit of filing on the magwell, but will work just fine in those too. Happy shooting."
"Don't have one myself but friend bought one, and it fires and feeds flawlessly out of his mak-90. Great fun. Price does seem a bit high but worth the money. Can't wait to get my OWN!"

"Purchased the AK 47 Drum. Works great, had no problems with misoperation, Bit Pricey but so is everything else, I guess it is due to \"Global Warming\" If you love to fire and not have to reload often this is the deal also reloading is not a problem with the drum. I also like the fact that it does not get in the way like the 40 mags that exstend out the bottom. As for the canvas cover it is a bit challenging.RegardsWickerbill"
"Got this drum for my WASR 10 and it works great. Loading it is a chore, but hay it is a 75 round drum. I stored one fully loaded for six months with no problems. Mag is ready to rock and roll!"

"It's a great piece of work but as with most romanian clips/drums you'll get a problem every once in a while. For some odd reason whether it be to bad packing or design, both the clips and drums seem to be a little bend at some points causing it the clip/drum to \"stick\" at certain points normally always in the same area resulting in a failure to feed. This can be fixed generally by bending it back into place. I had a couple problems with some Romanian 30rd Clips and I've seen the same problem with the drums."
"Listen up, this kind of mag is what you want for an AK. The reload rate for AK's is slower than many other magazine-fed weapons due to having to find the front of the magwell with the front lip of a mag and then rocking the mag into the well. Even well-practiced people usually have to take an extra moment when reloading an AK. If you're reloading a mag in a dangerous place, it's because you NEED it NOW. This 75rd. mag reduces the net time spent without ammo in your weapon and thus increases your life expectancy. AK's are great once loaded, but not fun to reload under emergent conditions. CTD needs to do something about all this expensive AK stuff... this mag costs as much as an entire selective-fire AK with extra mags if you go to most parts of the world. Only in America would you find a mass-produced and somewhat \"cheap\" item costing so much... 'Gotta love Capitalism. :-) Anyway, if you REALLY need volume of fire from your AK, here's your answer. Enjoy!"
"This is my 2ND purchase. It works perfectly. It loads all 75 rounds and feeds them with no problem. I paid a bit more for this one but it is \"good to go\". This is still the cheapest price that I could find.I have a preban Yugo AK-47 and as I stated this drum works flawlessly. If you have an AK-47, I recomend that you buy one--I bought two."
"I have 4 of these drum mags now ,and Im getting 2 more today. I have read some of you are having problems with them jamming after 40 50 60 round ect. I had this problem with one of my drums and I fixed it. You need to first make sure there are no dents in the drum, the slightest dent will make the cliender indisr drag on the cover... just bend it back into the right position. A small tap hammer may help, be careful not to over do it and cause more of a problem. Second thing to do if the drum starts to jam after most of the round are shot usally mean the spring inside isnt wound tight enough, open the drum and hand wind the spring 1 or 2 times untill the drum functions properly. Worked for me, hope it works for you. Dont be afraid to open them up, they are very easy to work on.... just dont pull the spring out.... you may regret that haha!I love these drums for my RPK-47/// you can really lay down some covering fire with these things... too bad they still arnt 109 dollars anymore. Still a good buy if you like high capacity mags!"
"I use my 75rd Drum on my SA-85M Ak-47 and never have jamming Problems, knock on wood, but I have to say that im thankful my dad owns a pawn shop, he sells 75 rd and 100 rd drum clips for the Ak-47 at $30.00 dollars a clip. I had no idea that they go for such a high price $134.00 dollars here! No wonder the drum clips sell so fast and my dads shop, he's selling them way too cheap, obviously. Well good luck with your jamming problem, and my hats off to the guys who made this web page, NICE JOB! HAPPY SHOOTIN everyone! BTW my HK .45 TAC USP was stolen the other day, if you guys see it layin around let me know... :("

"took my amd65 and wasr10 out to the range today first time using my drum i purchased few months back. not a great fit on my romanian the latch that locks mag in place is very thick and its hard to release mag. obviously slow to load but so much fun after. no problems at all releasing or loading amd65 it looks nasty."
"mag works perfectly on both my aks fit perfectly into my russian made \"trophy\" but but mag latch needed a little grinding to fit into my wasr10 no jams so far"
"I work for the Dept. of Defense and we fire alot of blanks. I bought this for work not taking into account the difference in size. Blanks will not fire out of this mag. Works GREAT with live rounds though.Did have to take it to the solvent tank on base though to clean out a ton of grease before it would even function. Great buy for the money, just be ready to take it apart and clean it for a few days before using."
"Bought one awhile back for a wasr. Works great, but don't over feed it, the last 2 are a bit tough."
"I got two of these now, both of them work flawlessly! Might have to get some more before the Dems ban them again!"
"I bought three, now I want three more. I wish just got 6 to begin with. The drums all fit and they come apart easily to be cleaned not that dirty and in good shape.They work the balls!"
"complete junk dosnt work but dose look cool but still not worth it."
"I'll explain normally this product would of been priced anywhere from $149.99-$199.99, but no its only $119.99 soon they will be no longer buy them now! I bought two, what a great buy! Buy now b/f any new gun/mag bans come into place and they will! The Gun Collector..."

"I bought 4 of them, over all not bad for being used, I had to open one of them up because they were not feeding the last 3-4 rounds. I had to wined it one \"spoke\" turn to put more tension on the feed.Despite looking for 2 hours on the net I could only find instructions on the China made drum.Find the knob that looks like it has a Chevy Bow tie in the middle, use a 3/32nd punch to push it in and turn, the knob should come off and the cover removes, hold the \"wheel\" inside in place and take out the 3 linked ammo looking follower , note that they hold the wheel from moving. Turn the wheel one spoke to put more tension on the spring, then put the 3 linked follower back in. It now should have more tension for ammo feed. Put the cover back on and turn the knob (have to play with it) till the little slot pops up. Game On! Army Combat Engineers Clear The Way!"

"just got my drum it took a little grinding but its (good to go now ) buy um when u still can!"
"A +++ I just got my two drum mags in, and they're like new. It took me about 20 minutes to figure out how to load it properly (push the lever down before loading each round, then release the lever entirely before repeating for the next round). Also, one of the springs I thought was too tight, so I relieved some tension a couple of spoke turns. The other mag wasn't tight enough, so I added two spoke turns of tension to it. I should mention that adjusting the tension is EXTREMELY easy, and I figured out everything you need to know about these things in 20 minutes with NO prior knowledge of their workings."
"Works fine on my WASR 10 and NHM 91. Get them while you can, the price just went up. It's an election year..."
"wow, it seems I got mine just in time (before the price went up). I still have my Wasr-10 on layaway, but I'm glad I prioritized this purchase. This mag is in excellent condition. Not a spot of rust or a scratch or dent on it. It feels very solid, has a good heft. From all the reviews I've read, I am looking forward to many thousands of rounds of use. My wife thinks I'm crazy, but now we'll be that much readier when the \"Zombies\" come. Now I need a couple of 1000rnd tins, Tapco stock set, and we're good to go."
"Bought one of these last week and spent an hour getting all that grease out of it! I don't know what that stuff is made of as getting it all out required the use of my parts washer and brush. Fits my WASR10 perfectly but will not lock into place in my Romanian RPK. Anybody else had this problem? All of my different AK mags will lock into place in the RPK except the drum. Hard to load but what the heck...it's 75 rounds!"
"Anyone who doesn't like these drums has got to be 100% crazy, I mean good god, it's a man's wet dream, 75 rounds of 7.62x39. hell that's a wall of lead. I have not had any problems with mine. to all the people who have been having problems with them. just take them apart, and adjust the tension on the spring, just be careful not to let the thing go, or it will beat your hand all to shizzle. just tinker with it. these are military surplus drums, as long as it has the followers, and a good spring. the thing should work fine. 5 freaking stars."
"i just got this mag in the mail yesterday...it says new condition but its wasn't new at all! it had rust and guess all over it and its such a pain to load! it took me about 45 min to load! but non the less its still a cool 75 round mag...but i should have got it for less since its used"
"I bought one of these 75 rounders from CTD, and I had no problems with it what so ever. I just took it apart, and cleaned out all the cosmoline, and voila, the thing works perfectly in my MAK 90. You can also adjust the spring tension, by removing the follower and either spinning the drum internals clock, or counterclock wise."
"I just got mine. it looks awasome but it is kinda rusty it is also OD green not black. I will sand it down and paint it Flat Black. Fits my WASR-10 perfict."

"I was apprehensive of having to clean out grease, but mine arrived grease-free and ready to go. Loading was reasonably slow, and the loaded rounds rattle inside that drum like the dickens. A bit of a tight fit in my Arsenal milled AK, but all rounds fed reliably. I wonder if anybody has tried using stripper clips or some sort of speed loader?"
"I got this in yesterday and just had to take it shooting. I was the envy of the range. There is a quite a bit of Cosmoline to clean out of these things, but nothing I can complain about. Took me a bit to figure out how to load, took it apart, and immediately figured out how. All in all I have to give it a 5 bullet rating. It's in fairly good condition for being surplus, it fits my Romanian WASR-10 like a glove with barely any wobble, and it 100% bad a."
