I was looking at this 90rnd Drum set up


How well do these work? Has anyone ever had any feeding problems with them? What kind of maintenance is reguired on them?

None of you guys have ever used one of theses? I find that hard to believe...some of you probably have a few setting on the shelf loaded up ready to go

Never used them, but have heard they work fine. They just make the weapon very unbalanced. If you want a drum, get a BETA mag, and I don't even really reccomend that. The durability/cost ratio isn't too good.

I've never tried the 90-round "snail" drums. I have a 120-round Norinco that works like a charm and a Beta I haven't even taken out of the box.

I used to own one of hte 90 round snail drums and I did not care for it only for the reason of difficutly in loaidng it by hand to the full cacpacity. However, with a tool or after it has broken in this may not be an issue and it did work.

I have also had excellent results with the 120rd Norinco drums.

I have never tried a BETA.

I got one, use it every now and then, works great, you can only realistically get 70 or so rounds in it unless you have a steel thumb and bionic forearm. Never had a misfeed from mine

Have any of you who own one used a LULA to load it? Did it work?

I dont have a LULA, yeah I know I should get one..but I tried to use the mag loader that came with the Beta C Mag, it helps but wasn't all that great, didn't fit the MWG 90 Rounder snugly enough

The loader for the 10 rd stripper clips work just fine for my FAL. I did buy a LULA for the AR, No problems. It works as adv.

The lula doesn't work for the snail or beta, I tried

I have the snail and beta loaded but I have never shot them
