Forget the 75 and 100 round drums. I want one of these for my AR and AK!

Very interesting variant of the HK23, referred to as the HK73. It features what has been described as a linkless feed system that holds a box similar in shape to a linked belt box, but as you can see in this photo, clearly different. It is said to hold 150 rounds of 5.56 ammunition, and is loaded with stripper clips.

Detailed photo of the HK73 linkless feed magazine. 150 round capacity.

Probably costs as much as an AK

I like it , 150 rounds and it looks like it would pick up those
shortwave broadcasts from Berlin.

From what I understand, HK has historically had problems developing and FIELDING high cap drums and boxes of the linkless variety. They had the opportunity or option rather, to develop a drum mag for use with the G36, rather they moved in favor of a BETA C MAG over a design of their own. Similar circumstance with the XM8; the BETA C MAG was chosen over a new design or their own. I would imagine that with the tolerences HK uses in their designs; the clock like wind up linless box is just too damn fine a lady for the average German soldat. Apparently, despite efforts such as this, the German mega high-cap mag effort reached a pinnacle in WWI with the Luger P.08 snail drums.

I would buy one if it didn't jam. I would be willing to spend up to a few to three hundred for it.
