I have both a Yugo UF and a Chinese Drum. Mine are good to go.

What seems to be the problem with your`s?

the support rivit through the reciever hits the mag body. Looks like it is just to far foward.

I had the same problem with a global ssr-56. I eventually sold the rifle because only certain mags fit. Thats a bummer the chicom drum doesn't fit. Does all your other mags fit in it? If so at least you can feed it with conventional mags.

I encountered the same problem with a Chinese drum and a Chinese AK, so it isn't necessarily the fault of whoever built the rifle. Loose tolerances are the strength of many Soviet designs, but it can also be a flaw. Filing on the cross bar support rivet or on the back of the magazine worked for me. I can't remember which one I filed- it was in 2003. I had no idea if the AWB would expire at the time, so I dreaded the prospect of 'hacking away' at either component.

Had the same problem, filed on the drum (100 rd) to get it to fit.

Also current having a little problem with a 75 rd Chinese drum, it doesn't always feed in my AMD65, looks like will have adjust the AK were it feeds.
