First thing's first––-who really needs a 75 round drum magazine?!?! Anyone who wants to have a lot fun, that's who!

I picked these top loaders up from Apex about a month ago and the one in the video below was the one in the 'worst' condition but as you can see it's still in great shape for a surplus mag. There's a lot of controversy out on the forums about whether these are of Romanian or of Russian origin; I'll leave that to the magazine experts. I know they were issued to Romanian RPK gunners.... Other than that all I know is that they work well and there's lots of fun.

Pros:
-100% reliable in 4 rifles I've tried them in so far
-Heavy (helps absorb recoil)
-Capacity
-Mil spec quality construction
-Relatively inexpensive now (I got mine for $79, but over the years they've been over $120)
-Great design; much easier to load than the wind up mags

Cons:
-Heavy (can be a pro or con depending on intended use)
-Tough to load after 40 or 50 rounds

Here's a video of me shooting a couple rounds through my Draco and then I break them down and cover some of the pros and cons.

I have a Chinese 75 round drum that came with my slightly used Mak-90. I have never even loaded it. Might come in handy some day.

That Chinese drum may very well come in handy one day. I'm just not a fan of wind up drums.

I have several 100rd AR mags,they are very handy when setting out in the prairie dog fields all day long.
They wouldn't be too much fun to carry around all day,but shooting off my portable bench they save a lot of time not having to change or load magazines all day long.

I've had one of these for about a year now and had no idea the manufacture lol, thank you for clearing it up

Also I'd like to say that it's been trouble free
