I only have one MDArms 20rd and Promag 12 rd.
I was wondering if I should snatch up one more MDArms drum
While I can still get it or is Promag ok since they will be around
longer.

I don't have any firearms, magazines or drums, all were sold off in my recent divorce.

It was worth it to get rid of her.

I own one 20rd drum and I have used it three or four times in the 8 years I have owned it.. Not three or four range trips, but three or four loadings.. I just don't like the way the shotgun handles with a drum..

8 round sticks handle much better.

Nope, wife-n-kids are gone, along with half of everything I had and half my paycheck too.

Gotcha!

Now ya see, that is a much more believable story than a tragic boating accident.

Still happily married and annoying each other.

I do have a 12 rd stick and 5 rd factory mag that came with it. I just bought the gun not long ago for what I thought was a decent price. Just getting into the fun of the Saiga 12. Don’t see to many people on here talking much. Seems like a lot of the post are old. I think I will get one more drum while I can get the MDArms model.

I used to have a set of bongo drums, but I gave them to my nephew when he was little. My sister hated me for that one!

You may or may NOT need more drums, depends on HOW you ROLL!

One MD 20

 

3 Promag 12 Rounders.

 

I honestly prefer the smaller drums and the way they handle. The MD Arms 20 is obviously higher quality, but I haven't had a single hiccup out of the Promags. I also like the smaller ones because they fit in surplus NV bags that attach via molle straps. I have two pouches attached to a larger bag. I keep one drum in the shotgun, a box of buckshot or 2 in the bag and two drums (NV) pouches attached to the outside. I also have 2 OEM stick mags inside the bag that contain stainless steel slugs. I picked up a case of the slugs for a song back when the company (monolit) was about to go out of business. Penetration on those things are scary.....

Just one MD20. It mostly exists to make people's eyes go big when I let them try it. Often they hand the gun back with ammo still in the drum. However, I had to sell the Iz108, so I don't have anything to use the drum with at the moment. Looking forward to buying that back.

 

IMO, a magwell and the stick mags are so much faster that the drum is just a novelty. I've tried a couple sizes of promag, and the quality on the MD20 is far above. I would probably like one of the 15 shot guys though.


But if you enjoy the drums, I would get as many MD 20 as you can while you can. They are cheap for what they are, and they won't come back.

I dont possess any firearms or accessories in order to make anyone's eyes go big.

 

I also dont post pictures of firearms in an attempt to impress people.

Firearms are not some sort of status symbol or a measure of machismo.

simple tools for a variety of applications.

good for you.

 

I got it because I wanted it and it has a purpose. Making people's eyes big and giving them a fun experience is a pretty nice side benefit though.

 

Guns have multiple purposes, and fun is a pretty valid purpose too, so nuts to the implication that having them only for serious purposes is somehow a superior attitude. Nothing about having a gun for fun takes away from having that or other guns for serious purposes.

 

If anything, it sounds like the above post is a machismo claim to impress people, and that doesn't impress me.

My post was not meant to be crabby or nasty, but i can see how it could be seen as such, sorry

I am a very stoic just the facts guy.

 

And I shoot LOTS just for the fun of it, and I loan a lot of equipment out for others to have fun with.

So I dont see guns just for "serious purposes "
