    Looks much lighter and smaller than my AK 75 round drums. I might have to get one for the AR if the price is not too crazy.

    That is the problem I can get 10-30round Pmags for that price so it is hard to justify for just sixty 60 rounds.

    People will buy this for the same reason they spend $100 on 60rd Surefire mags. Because it's unique and they can.

    I have 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40 round PMags. There is no possible way I'm not getting one of these.


    From their Facebook page:

    “The PMAG D-60. Sixty rounds. Reliable, durable, lightweight, shorter than a 30 rd mag, and full of features that make it extremely easy to use. MSRP $129.95. Please note that transparent back and cut-away versions were for testing purposes only, and the solid drum with round indicator window is the variant that will be offered for sale. Shipping Spring/Summer 2015, but you can get a sneak peek of the drum in action at ATAC range day before SHOT show.”

    Also the same reason I'd buy one or two maybe three.

    Hmmm, guess I'll wait for a sale. I think I bought my AK drum for $50-60, so I might be a little spoiled considering it's steel and it holds 75 rounds of 7.62x39... =)

    That might be the one drum I will ever buy. If I can find one for under $100 that is, but only for the novelty. I don't have a dump bag big enough on my kit to store that thing.


    But now that I've looked at the new line up for the coming year...

    My gut response is I need that, but the price seems high when you can by a stack of 30 rounders for the same price. Around the $70-$80 price range will be the maximum I'd pay. Give it time.

    Only time I liked a drum was when I was running my M249. Even then though I wouldn't of trusted this. Those guns jam like no other when it's using the magazine fed option.
