drums & ammo



Belt-fed firearm chambered in 7.62x39mm, this RPD has been modified into an SBR (Short Barreled Rifle), with an 11.5″ long barrel. Note the adapter in the first photo that allows for the use of M249 drums or ammo sacks. Second photo shows the traditional RPD drum with belt. The owner/seller also ditched the wooden handguards and added a forward grip using an AK pistol grip. (GRH)

brainy-twilight  asked:

Maybe it was more because a tommygun seemed like it was a suitably 'toony' weapon than anything else? Because I know that the iconic drum magazines, at least, weren't actually really popular. Most people preferred the stick magazines because even though drum magazines held more ammo, they weighed more and were a lot bulkier.

That was actually my thought when it turned into ink, like, the “someone” who was special was a cartoon character. But the fact that Alice expected Henry to be like “yeah chill” and Henry WAS like “yeah chill”, and that there’s a way to actually get it makes me wonder about it.



I think this started off as a Romanian Micro Draco Pistol but its been plated in 24K gold, engraved with custom carved furniture. Kind of a drug cartel look to it. Either have to doing a lot of drugs to want to buy this or selling a lot of drugs to buy this; price tag is $12,500. If only it had a gold plated drum with gold plated ammo…(GRH)

William Smith, 23rd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, uses an ammunition loading adaptor to download 30-millimeter rounds into an A-10C Thunderbolt II ammo drum prior to a pilot training mission at Moody Air Force Base, Ga., Jan. 5, 2011. The weapons download helped prepare the 23rd AMXS for an upcoming operational readiness inspection being held March 28 to April 4. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Eileen Meier)

Feeding Gluttony

So since my first AR-15 is a Shrike, I need to get the essentials to run it.

Going to pick up a few Magpul 40 rounders…

Then some Lancer L5 AWM’s…since I have a Lancer lower anyway

The X-Products 50 round AR-15 drum is also on my list to buy, but I’m avoiding the Beta Mags and Surefire stuff since they haven’t been really reliable.

I already ordered an M249 200 round box/drum for the linked ammo,  but might also pick up a few of the 100 and 200 round soft cases.

If by some odd miracle I can buy one (the $4,000 price tag is a turn-off), the TYR Tactical Machine Gunner’s Assault Pack would be awesome, assuming it works with the Shrike’s feed tray.


Been meaning to post more stuff about my AR-15 build but been so busy with work, college and upcoming vacation that I haven’t had time.

The first photo is of the adapter you need in order to use M249 ammo boxes/drums. It will work with the 200 round polymer box or the cloth soft cases. My upper came with the adapter, otherwise its a $125.00 piece on its own.

Last two pics are just of my Shrike with the 200 round ammo box. I still have the Stark Industries SE-5 forward grip on it. Haven’t decided on whether to change the flash hider or not. Going to be ordering more mags and an X-15 50-round drum for it as well. Then optics…
