Anyone tried one of these 22lr 50 rd drums for the AR-15?

I ordered one of these black dog 50 round .22lr drums up for the SIG 522. Anyone tried one yet?

Haven't yet, but saw that one from Botach too and MUST HAVE for the future. Please post a pic of the 522LR with that mag when you get it.

I can't get the site to come up. :evil:
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

Seems like a lot of work considering normal mags are 27-30 or so. If this thing was a 200 round it would be more interesting

50 is more than 27-30. Black dog makes good mags. $70 for a good drum I can live with.

They are making towers for this drum to work on Mini-14, 10/22, and other weapons as well.

They work great, I use them in my M16 22lr's with no problems.

I have a couple left if you want them cheaper.

I have 4. No problems at all.
As soon as the 10/22 mags are ready I will be getting a bunch of those too.

I wonder why they haven't built a tower for the GSG-5. I built they'd sell a lot better than that Puma drum they build.

Any word on price? I'm kinda tired of paying $75 a pop for the MWG teardrops.

Not sure where but I did see that they are finshing up on a tower so that the drums will work in the S&W MP22.

The Black Dog drums that I have all function great.

Wow, those videos look like fun. A 22lr full auto would be a gun I could afford to shoot. Can someone PM me on where and what I need to buy on the lower unit. Is the gun registered or just the sear?

Thanks

Agreed

Post by OnyxSkyDV » Tue Jan 05, 2010 1:28 pm

I will post to shore up the opinion. They are Good to Go!

And a hell of alot easier to load than the reg mags I might add. If I can just get my spikes .22 SBR upper to work reliably in full auto I will be tickled pink, but it's sure not the mags or the drum causing my issues.

I hear a entire .22lr AK might be in the works. I really need a gsg-5 drum though.

I ran about 1000 rounds through the 50 round drum today and the SIG 522. What a great combination. Didnt skip a beat with every type of ammo I fed it.

I ordered 4 of the 10/22 feed towers as soon as they hit the site and they should be in next week.
I will post on how they run with my Norrell trigger pack.

Do these come completely apart for cleaning? I've been reading about 10/22 mags dying from build-up, especially when used with a can. Don't want to drop a lot of coin on something that won't last.
