I don't think this is deflation, but a premtive counter strike to these hitting the market: <broken link removed>
$70.00 Korean, Chinese copies of the 75 rd drum. Brand new manufacture without all the cosmoline.
It is deflation...or at the very least - a lack of demand with folks unwilling/unable to pay $100 - $120 for something that is basically a novelty.
The Korean ones have been out for a while - so it's not preemptive. As such, the Korean drums have terrible reviews (bad welds and low quality steel, just like the 30 round magazines). Get a Romanian one - they aren't made in China but they are made on the same equipment with the same quality control.
thanks for the heads up! I don't get out much and when is I saw the Korean drums I thought 'wow-zers'.
I am shopping at aim!
