I'm sure this question has been asked 1000+ times but could someone shoot me a picture of a loaded drum for reference or dear God a scan of the instructions from Norinco, I would be forever grateful! (ps)The good news is I traded into it this afternoon, and the guy and I both assumed it was a 75 rounder SUPRISE!!!:o) Thanks All!

Drum open for loading. Red arrow indicates feed tower. White arrow indicates last round follower. Green arrow indicates Spring tension release button.

How about hthe manual in PDF form? It's for the 75 round chinese drum, but as long as you remember to add the other 25 rounds, it works the same

Fellas, I had it loaded all wrong before you all helped me out. The only other question I have is when you have finished loading the mag, do you have to load three into the tower by hand or does the spring push the rounds up when you wind it up? I loaded three rounds into the tower and it jammed all three, then it ran like a top! Just curious, and once again thank you all very much for your help! These drums are slick little units!

Answered my own question regarding the feed tower. I know that drum mags have been around forever, but I feel as though I have found the holy grail!

First time poster on this site and on this thread, wanna become a member and post info and feed back on my AK, own a SAR-1 and Norinco underfolder ak-47, have come to love my weapons. I love the drums cause not only are they fun to shoot but you can leave them loaded forever with the spring tension released, pick up a drum and they will go BANG without fail. Until I saw that same manual I had trouble loading the drum, the picture helped me figure it out. I went to Knob Creek and saw an awesome ak-74 by inrange, loved it so much I am having 2 built. Great info, guys

Just watch the fingers when pushing the spring release and close the the lid before rewindin the last three shells up to the top. like Cobra 47 said they stay on the shelf until ya need them, then a few turns on the windup key and a trigger pull then ya start it all over again.

Besides the 100 rd'er is russian and the 75'er is chinese usually a lot older to. Keep your eyes peel for the Iragi resales "never used and only dropped once.

bump them from polish in one long pull. usually have to take about three steps back.
