Is $240.00 a good price for the 100 round drum.I saw it at my local gun shop and was flabbergasted when I saw how much it cost.Needless to say I DID NOT buy it but did want to.For that price I could by another pistol or rifle.Anyone know what the going price on those are.

if its a beta c mag and comes with all the tools and book and pouch i would consider buying it.

better than waiting for one to come in the mail...

i bought mine new for $250 online at CMMG right after the ban lifted...

it was worth every penny to me...

Are you saying they are just for kicks or useless.

Every once in a while some new assclown in the military gets a few of them on an IMPAC card and writes some test review specs for them, and they always fail. Usually right after someone drops a full one onto the deck and it splits like an egg dropped from the top of the Empire State building. Not to mention that there's been no change in the mags since their original production, and there is plenty of access to earlier test results. More tax $$ down the drain.

There's a reason why our guys trust their lives to 30 round welded pieces of aluminum and not Beta mags. The simple machine always wins any fair contest.

$240 is the going street price. I have 2!

YMMV.

note that drum mags for the 1921 tommy guns were not adopted for the military.

the army went with stick mags also
