Has anyone been trying to modify these lately. I'd like to see some pictures of how it's done.

The only ARs that I have seen using Suomi drums are the ones at www.tommy15.com . Have you seen other modification ? David

A shameless plug ? Well maybe



This is the new Energizer icon. It just keeps going, and going, and going...

EDIT:

I'll post a video of it in action after Christmas.

yeah, I don't understand the drum mod thing... people will pay $250 for a Suomi drum with another mag grafted to the top of it, and they have less than reliable track records. The Tommy15 I just saw at the dealer was on sale for $899 and came with a modified lower/adapter that takes the drums plus it came with a stock 9mm lower so you could use stick mags/adapter of your choice... seemed like a good deal and was less than I paid for mine without the spare lower.

From page 9 of the Sten mags in a Colt 9mm system!! thread. AR-Fan has this picture posted:

I understand not wanting to pay $250 for a modified drum that may or may not work. But at $30 for a drum and $5 for a sten mag, I wouldn't mind trying to modify one to see if I could get it to run.

I would like to see what just a lower for the Tommy-15 goes for.

Did you switch from using Oly lowers? Is this a complete lower? Do .40 cal rounds fit in the drum?

???? I have 2, one is an Oly set up the other Colt... never tried to stick 40 cal rounds in because I don't have any 40 cal uppers... you should probably email them directly for answers to other questions.

Slightly OT, but Robert at RTG parts has a shipment of nice Suomi drums in and very reasonably priced too. I bought a bunch
