Okay, I'm lost.

What does an AK drum go for!?

I saw a couple months ago the guy selling them for 999.00, everyone let him have it, but he seemed to think they were worth that much.

Then today there's a 225.00 china drum
35 dollar china drum missing some parts
130 dollar romy's
75 dollar unknowns

Okay, someone please explain to me what a frigg'n drum is supposed to cost.

999?

from what i've seen the later prices you mentioned are around the going values. i've seen romys for a little cheaper, and i've seen them for a little more expensive. it all depends. haven't looked much at chicom ones.

Chinese drums I've seen running from 100-130, Romanian from 79-100, Russian come up every now and then for around 135-150.

I bought two chinese 75 rounders back in the early 90's for around $32-$38 apeice. After using one of them, I cannot figure out why anyone would want one. They are heavy and noisy. I like the Russian or Romanian ones better but they are still heavy. They look cool on an RPK but that's about it IMO.

I would rather spend my money on 30 round magazines.

The $999 is because the seller is on crack.

Chinese drums haven't been imported since 1994 or so. Romanians have and still can be had for $75ish. Romanian drums suck compared to Chinese as the Chinese drums can be opened from the back, loaded, and stored unwound and typically go for $100-$125ish

well with the big BetaC craze people were paying 400-500 dollars for them! Not so long as a year two years ago.

I don't think those are worth even 200 they go for now, heavy, noisy, heavy, heavy....did I mention, heavy?

Anyway.

This is generally accurate. Chinese 75 rounders used to be all over the place for $100 shipped, but they've crept up a bit in the last year. You still see them for $110 sometimes. The rommys could be found in the high 60s on gunbroker over the summer, but I just checked and theres less, and at a higher price. $80 is probably more average.

I wonder WHY the Chinese drums haven't been imported lately? Part of the Norinco ban, maybe?

I bought mine in `94 right before the AWB for $35.

Part of the Clinton regimes on the War on Guns. ATF raid on Waco was the first step, to boost up the need for more ATF agents, Brady Bill became law, Assault Weapons Ban did too, ban everything from China just for kicks....

So then, by your skin-thinned reasoning......DEC. 7, 1941, can't be refered to as "Slap-A-Jap" day, even though there is no "Slur" there, or my saying "Chink"................In my world , there were two Chinese groups....one who went to Taiwain.............Taiwanese, or Chi's, and those that killed a few hundred-million people..(and tried to kill me, many a time)....they are "Chinks"...or ChiComs if you prefer,,,

No matter to me. IM hate-mail not withstanding.............if you bombed Pearl Harbour, you are a "Jap"........if you tried to kill me (sorry they missed, to many of you punks, not like they tried....) and came from China and waived a Little Red Book, you are a Chin(K)Com... No "and, buts, or if's". Live with it.

The same folks who pride themselves in being so damned policically correct dont dare say a word when a white guy is called a "cracka", "honky", "goyim" (cattle). "shiksa" (female abomination) or a Germanic is called a "Kraut". You PC freaks should take your Political Correctness, wrap a sheet of sandpaper around it and shove it up your ass.

For most of us, not using racial slurs has nothing to do with trying to be "politically correct." Your attempt to defend that jackass is laughable.

Yikes! I did the google search that you all probably did...I had no idea that prices went up that much....

The question is: What is out there now that we will call "cheap" in a few years?

PC? No it never bothered me to be PC, that is what the "Little Red Book" was all about....being PC in extremis.

Thanks, but there is no reasoning with thin-skins.....they're victims of Government schools and would S*** their pants if they ever heard rounds hitting around them. I wonder what the term they would use to describe those firing at them would be..............

......Good thing that actual MEN have stood up, over time, so they could hide behind them.

75 round rommy 65-80

I thought I just saw Chinese drums advertised at AIM and Copes within the last few weeks. I believe prices were in the $100 to $129 range.

Hey tough guy, no one cares if you call the specific people that are shooting at you names. Is anyone shooting at you right now?

This is way off topic, but people like you really need to be educated. Since you think you aren't using any slurs, you should know that this is what appears in the dictionary for the terms you choose to describe certain races:

Jap ( P ) Pronunciation Key (jp)
n. Offensive Slang
Used as a disparaging term for a person of Japanese birth or descent.

Chink ( P ) Pronunciation Key (chngk)
n. Offensive Slang
Used as a disparaging term for person of Chinese birth or descent.

ETA:

Since it doesn't seem you know what a slur is:

slur ( P ) Pronunciation Key (slûr)
tr.v. slurred, slur·ring, slurs
To pronounce indistinctly.
To talk about disparagingly or insultingly.

Amen to that!! No reasoning with them, thats why they deserve to be treated and judged just as they do those they defame. I bet they dont have a problem with the word "raghead", or "camel jocky" either. We know they dont have a problem with "Craker, Honky, Shiksa, and Kraut". Oh, but thier soooooo tolerant of others beliefs.... Yeah right. I have yet to find one tolerant of my beliefs.

I like how these wanabes give themselves names like "psyop". Give me a friggin break! These are the kinda guys that would wear ensignia that they havent earned, that is if they knew a real deal guy wouldnt be around to call them out.

The fact that you have yet to find one person that is tolerant of your beliefs either says a lot about everyone or a lot about you. I'm betting it says a lot about you.
