I see Numrich now has 100 round drums.  Appear to be the same Taiwan made version of the 50 rounders that work well.  Anybody tried one of these yet?

If they are made in Taiwan, I'll have to try one.

Let's have a drum raffle... 10 people send me $40. I'll buy one and test it. Then draw a winner from the hat.

TD and I looked at the new Numrich C-Drums at Knob Creek yesterday.  They only had 3 available at the Creek for $350 each, and they look good.  Of course, we'd like to hear a range report.  They are very well oiled, in a sealed plastic bag, inside a cardboard box, just like their sister Taiwanese L-Drums.  Here are some photos of the new drums.  They are marked "GPC W. Hurley, NY." (Gun Parts Corporation)

Interesting in that Numrich cannot take advantage of using the Thompson logo, but apparently are having C-drums made. It's odd seeing a very blank looking c-drum.  If they actually work, it will be the cat's meow.

 

Hey Roger, just when you thought your drum collection was nearing completion!!!

​WOW things have changed over the years . $350 for a C Drum that might work we would not have been able to get our money out fast enough a few years back.

That is phenomenal.

Curious for the motive behind the reproduction.

There are so many other similarly high priced items that have not attracted the foreign attention...

The Kahr drums are made by a factory in (I think) Minnesota and have never really
been that good. The same place also makes the semi 30 rd. Mag which Kahr sells for
&70!!!
From the pics these C drums look to be presented just like the " Crosby" drums
so I would figure they went to the same mfg. in Taiwan and since the "Crosby" drums
we're so good hopefully these are too.

Indeed, that is a lot less $'s, than the C Drums listed for $577 on the Kahr arms A-O website.

Here in the UK, it does not matter if it operates or not, but it would complete the empty space in my Gordon Hergistad viola case.


Stay safe

For the price and the Taiwanese lineage, I decided to try one. It should be here by Thursday. I'll try it out and report on it Friday or Saturday unless someone beats me to it.
Hopefully it will be a good shooter. I bought several of the first run of their L drums and they all work great.

Also looking forward to 21A's report.

 

I would rather have the drum with a blank faceplate than any GPC mark.

But, maybe I can have "shot shell magazine" engraved over the letters.  :happy:

I called Numrich Arms this morning to check on the C drum - it's still sitting in the warehouse according to "customer service." It looks like I was a bit over optimistic about fast shipping. I've gotten spoiled by companies that practice same day shipping!

Update:

Numrich says drum shipped yesterday - projected delivery date is 4/17/17.

Got my Numrich 100rd "C" drum today, but will not be able to test it till sometime Sunday or Monday. I'm impressed with the quality of it.

Yes, I could not stand it, I had to get one! Fits perfect on my Thompson.  :D
