In the last year I have passed on several at $1,000.00. You will need to send it to Merle, the drum doctor to get it to run right. cost to repair - check with Merle but I think $200 - $300.00. Most board members seem to think the price will drop if Hi-Cap ban sunsets.

I spoke to Moon (Kahr) at the shot show - they will sell the 50rd L drums if the sunset takes place - they are already in production and stamp "law enforcement only" or "export only" on the L drums - they will just not stamp the drum - however, will not make the C drum. That could change.

The L drums will sell for just over $200. Its anyones guess what the value of the C drums will be after the sunset.

Hawksnest is correct - I sent a C drum to Merle as I remember the cost was around $250. The drum works great.

The cost is what the traffic will bring.

If you have the cash and the WH C Drum actually runs then $1200 would be a good price.

It would be interesting to see what happen if the ban actually Sunsets.

I just bought two NIB WHs C drums for $1000 each. In general used should be less but I don't think they made enough of them to matter.
