AK drum magazine parts?

Post by flcracker » Thu Nov 21, 2019 11:36 am

I have an all-metal 75-rnd AK drum magazine that went to the range once the last time we had a shoot out at Preacher's. During a round of :o Casual :o shooting, the winding key disappeared into the dirt - the retaining ring inside the cover apparently sprung open just enough to let the key fly off. Never found the missing part, and the drum mag has been in a box since then, only to re-surface this past weekend.

Is it possible to buy replacement parts for these drum magazines? Google hasn't helped.... :cry:
....and some rin up hill and down dale, knapping the chucky stanes to pieces wi' hammers, like sae mony road-makers run daft - they say it is to see how the warld was made!

If it's just the outer, winged "winding" part, one could be fabricated pretty easily and blued to match the body. Any idea who manufactured it?
