Actually test fired the VRPK today and ran perfectly with all mags. So if the drum is up to snuff, I will rock and roll it then.

Default Well sorta

Is ulas drum the only one in the wild right now?

I keep it in a small cage and give it a couple of drops of Mobil 1 gear oil. It gets a lil "wound up" once in a while and bangs on the door. But I give it a good shakin and then it calms down.

I think it's a lil hungry for some 7N6?

Default Update

I had some issues today with the range. So time was limited.

I ran 90 rds(3pks) of 7N6 with the best running 5.45 rifle. This was to give an easy test for the drum.

I ran 74 rds in various bursts. At first 1 shot/1 shot/1 shot. For about 15-20 rounds.

Then started double tapping. Then 3X shots. Then back to 1 shot but continuous with a 1 sec pause.

Then back to double and triple, double and triple.

Only 1 issue: The spring would run out. Not sure if the spring is weak or what. But I would wind it some more and off it went.

The other issue I will tweak is the lid clasps. They are a little short. I am going to grind down the lid where the clasp sits. And then they can get a little more over the hump. (clasp a lil tighter)

I then loaded up the last 16 rounds. And just bumped them out, no problem.

So overall? Success! Will test it some more next week with different ammo and another rifle.

MJ

Badass!

The spring, did it wind to 16 clicks? Or 4 overall turns?

The could sping wound sprocket have jump the gear on the back?

Yea tue latches are a tricky thing on this conversion, they have to be bent just right, didnt think of grinding the lip thats pretty goid idea hope it works.

Appreciate the feedback man!

nothing new since last updates. I'm still coming back from a major derailment so not much time on the drums.

I'm still soldiering on will have some updates soon and a test fire in near future.

AK-ula did you make it back out yet?

The weather here has been Shiite. Yea I know.....wah wah wah.

If ain't raining...you ain't training!

The road/trail that goes to the rifle range is a disaster. And the other time I have been using to get the place winterized and some truck repairs.

Maybe?? this week. But definitely next week.

Thx
MJ
