OK guys, I'm a little busy with stocks but what the heck, might as well throw a few more irons in the fire. I'll turn out some rings so that you can change your X (10) round drum to a 30 round drumuser posted image

This is the most practical conversion. The spring in an X drum doesn't have the power to spin out 50 rounds, and making new rails is a time consuming and fairly precise process.

Here's how it works. You remove the rotor assembly, remove the guide rails for the 10 rounds, then put the ring in place and reasemble. Turns out to be about like the old XL drums. (The picture shows it on a XL drum body).

I'll sell the rings for $45. If you want me to do the rest of the work, I can arrange that too for an extra fee. Please email if you want the service.
