I have this little book here that I picked up cheap called "The Complete Kalashnikov Family of Assault Rifles", and found some info in it.
It's talking about 40-rd RPK-74 magazines.
Anyone in the US sell these? Is there a such thing as an AK-74 (5.45) drum?
I have that book. It's a little outdated, as it was written before the import ban, and the fall of the Soviet Union.
The RPK-74 magazines are 45-rounders, and can be found, but normally not from actual distributors. They are rare enough to be pretty pricey.
There are no drums for 5.45, altough there is a "coffin" mag which uses a quad-stack mechanism. I don't think any pre-ban coffin mags are in the US though.
Hit various sites classifieds/equiptment exchange boards and keep an eye out. That's about the best bet.
How about a 45 round magazine made from (2) 30 round mags?
They are for sale here www.joeken.net/store/gunsnet.asp. Click on the GUNSNET Deal. They should be $27.99.
