THE IMAGE ABOVE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT
Looking at them from Aim and was curious if the 10 dollar price difference is worth it or not?

If the quality is good get the Korean ones, they're like the Norinco 75 round drums where you open up the back and load them, can store with spring unwound.

The Korean drums are nowhere near the quality of the Romy drums, the romy is identical to my chinese drums. The welds on the Korean drums suck. I sold my Korean drum for $45 bucks and replaced it with a Bulgy drum which seems to be the same quality as the Chinese and Romy drums. Cant beat the price for the Romy drums.(all drums I refered to are the open back chinese design)

Just came back from a test and I can tell you this: I bought two Koreans from Centerfire. I loaded one with 60 rds (all I had), bumped it empty and in the process split the gas tube furniture right down the middle. Should I blame the mag?

No. It wasn't the mags fault.

Pics? Was it plastic or wood? Nevertheless, it sounds like you had a bad hand guard.

Actually I was being somewhat sarcastic. My point being the Korean mag ran flawlessly. The hand guard wood was already cracked and the bump firing just separated it further. What does p*ss me off is Aim has the same mags for $50 each.

Love the Romanian drums. 75 round drums are the same as buddies Chinese drums and shot perfectly. Can store with rounds and spring unwound.

About half way down the page he says Romanians are better.


I like the Romanians better, IMO.

biglou,
Good catch. I just asked why the change in recommendations. We'll see what happens.

My guess is, one was in stock and the other wasn't.

I noticed he gave you a response. Which does make sense, lol.

Perhaps a bit off topic, but I'd like to know if there will be a regular supply of these being imported since both Romanian and Korean drums are new production?

(Assuming there won't be any new import restrictions in the future. )

Also,, The AK74 Drums are in stock along with the GSG5 110rnd. Drums...


Happy Shopping....

I just recieved two Korean drums from Aim today.Orderd them Saturday night and they hit the door today.The fit and finish looks good to me.I was not expecting them to look as good as they do.They both fit perfect in my two 10/63's. I won't be going to the range any time soon,but I will be order more of these drums.

I have several of each. For the extra $10, if the Romy's are in stock, I would get those. If not, the SKoreans. They both are fine mags and I haven't noticed any problems with the Sk's akin to the issues with some of their stick mags. They just feel a little lighter to me.

Copes Romanians are now $65. I ordered one just for grins. Why not have one? Anyway, I was looking into a pouch for it and found out that the cheap Romanian pouches that some have do not fit this type of drum with the clamps for the back. So, I finally found an E. German pouch that they described as 'the same pouch as the 4-mag pouch but without the mag separators'. Well, I just happen to have an E. German 4-mag pouch, so I'm going to disconnect the separators and use that to keep the drum in. Loading instructions are going to take some study - looks like it's pretty easy to mess up.

I just got mine in the mail today, upon initial inspection they look just as good as my Chinese drums from the Nineties. Can't wait to get home from work so I can tinker with them.
