I recall someone asking if a rotary drum magazine has utilized, well I found this cool looking thing on gun broker. I'm not really interested in buying it, but was just wondering if anyone had experience with this thing in regards to if it functions well or not.

I'm assuming it doesn't work all the time because wouldn't the rotary drums be more popular?

I have one. It works fine if you wind it properly. The problem is some people don't read the instructions and wind them up wrong, and then they jam.

The idea of the Calico Liberty is pretty cool. It was designed to be used for special forces or secret service as a light weight, light recoil, weapon that you can operate with one hand. (but they would have a full auto version) The drums snap in and out really easy and you can view how much ammo you have left. Shells eject straight down to avoid hitting your buddy in the side of the head with brass. I have a laser on mine dialed in to 25 yards. I even have a 100 round drum. It is really fun to plink with at the range.

These guns are no longer made and the drums are hard to get now.

I've seen Calico advertise that they are back in business in the Shotgun News.

If you want one, wait until they are back in full production.
