MD arms can weld new plastic on the tab. My 1st run drum had this done to it and has been fine. Or md arms might just replace it for you , call them.

Hey Sparky 63!
Did you figure out a solution.
I purchased a brand new MDArms 20 Rnd drum from Saiga12.com. It arrived broken with the tabs that hold a retainer pin on the rear broken off.

I contacted both MD Arms and Saiga12.com via email and received no responses. Been 2 weeks. I really don't have the funds to pay for shipping back. sigh...

I've read this thread three times and I'm scratching my head, I've got to ask...every place I've seen these drums for sale they come with three back covers ALL of which have these tabs. Functionally or aesthetically I don't see a big difference between the three. Yeah I'd try to get the cover with the broken tabs replaced but is this a show stopper? Right now if the tabs broke on one of my MD drums I'd have 4 backups. Did the OP throw the cover or the cover and the drum away?

What am I missing?

Our right to keep and bear arms - personally - is the essential element of political liberty, without which we would stand as mere slaves of any current administration, as do most of the people in the world today. We treasure our right to be armed, not only as defense against tyrants, but also as defense against evil men acting alone. Our right to defend ourselves against felons by force of arms protects not only our liberty but also - and this is often overlooked - our dignity. Dignity is a word not often used in the Age  of the Wimp, for by definition a wimp has no dignity.  But dignity remains not only desirable but essential to persons of consequence.  This concept is rejected by the socialist, who feels that dignity resides solely in the state. But we Americans are not socialists (at least most of us are not) and we prize our unique status in world society.

I believe he is referring to the lug that the magazine release catches...

I think this is a very literal example of haste making waste.

Well that would make more sense but it's hard to know from what was said.

Not hard to know. If there is a rear tab, there must be a front one. There are front and rear lugs, but only rear plate retention tabs.The definition of "tab" is easy to infer from his subject line.

Also, MD 20s have only been coming with all 3 covers for a few months and CSS had that option for a while before others did.
