Anyone want a 48 round drum?

That's what the auction says.

The drum he describes is the "NO rounder" drum made in Japan for the "Non cap fireing" guns. As the guns were dummys only, they didn't use caps and the drums had no insides. They were just for looks.
They, like the 39rd Jap drums didn't have any stamping on the outsides.

Hmmm, the seller is from Florida and can't count... wonder if he participated in the ballot counting the last election.
