Who would buy a drum for an MKA ?

Recommended Posts

Working with a company to get a drum on the market if it's worthwhile.

 

Most likely 20 rounds, probably 2 3/4" only - would that be a deal breaker?

 

Who would buy?

and How many? ( be realistic)

 

If the price was ~$120.00?

 

~$100.00??

Not to hijack the thread but id be far more interested in a viable vepr 13 drum. Is that a possibility? 20 at 2 3/4 would be awesome.

Nope, we looked at making parts for the Saiga/VEPR , just can't get excited about that platform. AR15/MKA style guns are much better for competition.

I thought you were getting pretty good numbers in this thread, all things considered.

IF and only IF it was proven to function flawlessly …..I may get ONE.

Even though I personally am not a fan of drums. (Too much weight added to an already very heavy gun).

Good Luck all the same.

Hey Matt, What happened to the drive blocks on your site??????

I was looking to purchase one but noticed they are no longer available.

We were going to drop them all together, but will be making another batch soon.

I think it is safe to say just about every owner of a MKA would probably be interested in one.

It would be a very popular item for you I'm sure. But it is a double edged sword.

If it runs good and is well constructed you will sell tons, if it is not you will sell very few.

 

Best of luck.

I'd be in for 1 if I could get my gun to run without jams. Just ground off the top lip in the barrel and bought 2 ten round mags from Matt...we'll see how it runs next weekend.

Sorry, late to the post (rarely ever visit), but I can live with $100 for a 20rd drum. 2-3/4 only is not a deal breaker either. The real question here is what's the smallest batch you could do that would be worthwhile to you? At a dozen on this forum, figure 2 dozen more that won't get around to reading this post, add in the owners that aren't registered at all that will eventually come across your drum (maybe 50 to 100?), and I'd say you could sell around 100 of them over the next 1 to 2 years. Maybe a deal post on SlickGuns too to reach a wider audience? May not be worth your time, but it's worth my Benjamin if you do it!

A 15 to 20 round drum for the 100-120 dollar range I would be interested, of course needs to feed correctly with high or low brass and high velocity 2 ¾ ammo.

I just picked up an MKA 1919 Match and would love to have a couple of drums for it. $120 is reasonable if it's made well and runs reliably.
