Cheaper Than Dirt carries a replica of that, assuming that's a pic of the original, experimental Soviet 75 round mag. However, they warn that it's for display only.

If you want an AK mag that holds more than the 40 round RPK mag, and actually works, buy a drum. The Romanian drums are readily available for about $99.

Put a sharp edge on the bottom surface and the peasants can use it to harvest the wheat crop when they are not defending the homeland :) Did they distribute a hammer along with it?

Those massive capacity mags are often sold as novelty items, as far as I have seen they are not actually practical, and may not even work. They are basically welded up display items, and I have heard the big issue is in the spring strength needed to push that many rounds being impractical. I believe that is one of the 75 rounders pictured, although at the tip seems to be a custom modification to mount to the barrel as well.

Here is one of the 75 round ones

That much weight that far forward would make the rifle hard to use, IMHO.

I have 30's and one 40 for my SAR-1, but use 20's a lot because they are lighter and handier.

I'd personally rather have a 20 or 30 in the rifle and a couple spares in a pouch than that magazine, and it only takes a couple of seconds to change magazines.

BTW, that hammer and sickle photoshop is hilarious...

I like 30 round magazines and 75 round Chinese drums.

I don't know why you would want something like that, my latest "Cheaper than Dirt" has a 75 round mag.

Have fun. :D

I can't think of a more useless magazine. Get a drum. More compact and easier to use. It also looks like it won't put as much stress on the contact point between the magazine and the rifle.

Two things that I notice about that mag and gun. One, the barrel appears to have been made extra long so that it will connect with the end of the magazine. Two, there is no way you could close or extend the stock with it in place.

I would like to sharpen the ridge on the back of that sucker and use it as a massive axe bayonet.

the bbl dosent look extended to me.

ive heard of 100 rnd mags, maybe one of them??

by the look of it, there would be no way for the notch on the front of the mag to lock in and be able to rock it back because of interferance with the bbl itself, im guessing it dosent have one, the ring on the front holds the front of the mag, and the whole thing rocks in to latch in the mag catch.

and, besides not being able to fold the stock, as mentioned, you wouldnt be ablt to put a bayo on it, so im doubting it is of russian design, they value their bayo's too much to compromise it.

Looks like a Chaut-Chaut magazine for the 8mm Lebel version.

Might serve a purpose in defending a firing point with a medieval type arrow slot opening.

I used to like the HUngarian 20 rounders....they did not "mompod from a low prone&had a (vestigal)hold open...the Russian drumswere pretty good as well&did not require the key-winder type arranhement of the Chicom ones....although they were good if you wanted to leave'em loaded without compressing the follower spring.

I didn't get the impression that the original poster wanted the mag to use in a RPK machinegun, but rather in a (presumably civilian, non-automatic) AK.

I doubt any of those were ever actually issued for use with the RPK, anyway; they'd screw up an RPK's handling pretty badly as well (think about trying to shoot out a window or over a wall with one), and picture trying to change that mag in combat, or how you'd carry spares. Not to mention the reliability issues.

AFAIK, the longest mags issued for the RPK were 40 rounds (my 40-round mag is a milsurp RPK mag), and drums were issued for capacities higher than that.
