x2 on the HK style. AFAIK this is one of the most reliable drum mag designs out there.
Case in point:
HK 91 Heckler and Koch drum mag demonstration Xs products X-91 - YouTube
g10 50 round drum .308 caliber G3 model para G8 HK - YouTube

No 1st hand experience.
I would love one for the FAL, but at almost $300 a pop I could pick up 6x40rd mags and be ahead of the game.

What? You don't like the hole in my garage wall? At least I'm pointing it at the ground.

Until it comes time to reload. Zombie Hoards don't give you a time out to swap mags.

I'd imagine the company that makes these has the best salesmen in the world. Especially in regards to the HK crowd.

20 rd Aluminum G3 mag ~$1
20 rd Steel G3 mag ~$3
30 rd Steel G3 mag $30-$50
50 rd Aluminum G3 drum $230+

I'd rather have a belt fed personally. I saw this video and almost screamed "BRASS TO THE GRASS!!!"

That's my problem. All the videos and info posted are for HK firearms. The only video I've seen so far with the M1A there is a jam. I dunno its just an idea I'm toying with.

Belt fed HK are notoriously unreliable. Especially the older ones with the fixed feed trays. You can call up Michael's Machines and get a belt fed HK in 5.56 or 7.62 for an easy 12,000.00 though.

Spork. You are of absolutely no help what so ever. Thank you. I'll take a close look at my financial situationon Monday after I pay all my hospital bills and decide if I really need a 50 round drum or not.
BTW http://m14forum.com/ammunition/10372...-magazine.html
This is a very good write up I found!

Eh, if I need that much .308 on target at once: that's what the 1919 is for.

Well all things concerned it really is just a novelty item. However a really cool novelty item at that. If I do buy one it will without a doubt get busted out often. I'de be willing to bet I'll still use my 10 and 20 round sticks a whole Hell of a lot more often though! This really is my main rifle at the moment. It was a Rock River AR15 for awhile there, but I ended up selling that & picking up this.

Anything over the max that your state allows for hunting is just a novelty.
(Self defense exists, I realize.)
What were you expecting? Aren't Korean 20rd magazines still fairly reasonable? Are G3 magazines too wide to fit into the M14/M1A well?

There is no max in ND. If one really wanted to you could mount a beta c, and go hump the woods. When I used to carry the AR I always left a 20 in. With this rifle I always keep the 10 in and there's a 20 in my door..
I guess I'm not really expecting anything? Other than it better feed good!
