    Hi
    Twenty years ago I was offered to buy this original drum mag for $ 1,000.
    However, at that time I had $ 1000.
    Today I have $ 1000 dollars, but don't have such mag.

    Didnt even know anything of that type existed. And never even heard of them. How many rounds does the drum hold?

    I don't remember exactly. Approximately 15 - 20.

    not sure if this is real. Never heard of one. Only thing even remotely similar would be an experimental trench style internal mag developed by the Finnish for the m27

    I had the opportunity to keep this mag in my hands.
    This mag had a brass sign "Slalins plant"

    I'd lay wagers that is an AK (or SKS) drum. -and if the seller offered it up for $1000 it was only to make a quick buck off an unsuspecting buyer.

    Maybe you'll make a bet with me?

    Done. Show the web link with some proof it was a standard-issue mag and you can talk all you like.

    I'll take that bet as well.

    your observations might have some validity to it, if the M-N was chambered in 7.62x39, as all it would need is for a clever person to make a feed tower to go into the rifle.

    but, the M-N is chambered for the much larger 7.62x54r. there is no way on this planet or on Mars for that matter, that drum is a AK drum, or even a modified AK drum.

    They make a ton of aftermarket drums for the Mosin. And I can state emphatically they don't go for $1000 either. Anyone who would have bought one for that much deserves to own one. In poverty.

    I'd let NT95 talk all he wants ANY day. But that's just me.

    Ditto! Those placing bets should be aware that NT95 is a well respected expert and author of books on the Nagant revolver and the Tokarev rifles. He has not participated on the forum very much in the past but lately he has taken a more active roll. We can only hope that he continues to share his knowledge and experience.

    I have not seen one for the mosin but have examined the SVT version and one for the AVT previously. I'm not sure what good a drum magazine would be in a bolt action rifle.

    "Terror is not a new weapon. Throughout history it has been used by those who could not prevail, either by persuasion or example. But inevitably they fail, either because men are not afraid to die for a life worth living, or because the terrorists themselves came to realize that free men cannot be frightened by threats, and that aggression would meet its own response. And it is in the light of that history that every nation today should know, be he friend or foe, that the United States has both the will and the weapons to join free men in standing up to their responsibilities."

    Possibly, during a gun battle you wouldn't have to mess around with Stripper Clips every 5 rounds, especially if you had a stack of loaded Drums...:-)

    Hello, gentlemen . NT95 is a recognized expert on the topic - Mosin rifle in Russia.His experience and knowledge allows him to write the right books .
    If he writes that a drum was - it's true. Made the drums a little,only for tests in the Red Army.
    Then came WW2 and production from the reels rejected - difficult to manufacture and expensive. Today they left the unit. I am sure that if the drum will have NT95 ,in Russia,for $ 1,000,he can sell it 5 minutes

    What's all this talk of people hating people? I just wish all folks would be more polite in their conversation while discussing on firearm forums.

    NT95 - any details on the history / develpement on this mag. I think we all would love to hear more about it if it was a official experiment trial.

    My Grandmother used to say, "Haters gunna hate". That saying so many decades ago still holds true. It's a shame.

    Do you know around what time it was constructed? I am thinking around the time prior to the adaption of PPSH and other submachine guns. Any other details would be appreciated - thanks
