Just like everyone else, put me down for 2, just let me know when and where to send the funds.

And, just think, it's around Christmas time, what a great Christmas gift!

I was looking at the Brady Center for Gun Control & noticed my state of Utah has one of the worst gun control laws in the country! No wonder I like living here (having a WH M1 TSMG that is PK improved doesn't hurt either). It's also a very pretty place with the Rocky Mountains right outside of my front door. If you can afford it, you can own "ANY" gun you want here. Just some suggestions for you. Take care, Brent. biggrin.gif

PK, thanks for doing this. Put me down for 2 when the time comes.

Any chance that some C drums might also be made in the future?

I'm sure if Kahr, or some other company knew for certain that their investment would pay off they would produce a C drum.

For the cost of tooling up and not knowing how long the window of opportunity will remain open it would be a risky expenditure.

Perhaps a group buy of say 1000 at 600 to 700 per unit might at least make them think about it.

Grey Crow- right there with you but I have a feeling we will have to do without- I will go for 3 'c' drums, now we need some more takers


Probably do 500 right here or near that and one SAR and KCR show make up the 1000.

Hi Paul,

I haven't been reading the Board lately (working late), so didn't know about the
group buy vote. If you ARE keeping tabs on who wants in on the deal,
please notate me as wanting 2 of them. And thanks again for your time in working on this.
Incidentally, I'd like to sell either (but not both) my NY address (painted black by the British for N. Africa, I think) or my Bridgeport L drum to whoever wants it most, in case anyone is interested. Both work perfectly, and in great condition--hardly used--I don't get out to the range hardly ever. And I live only a 25 min. drive from Knob Creek Range. (I also grew up less than an hour from the Statue of Liberty, and only went once, when I was a kid.) Go figure.

I'd want a FAIR price for whichever one I sell, not some outragious price, but what the market will bear (or is it bare?).

Interesting..I sold a NY Addressed "L" Drum years ago that I painted black! I used the British Sten Gun Paint to do it..I picked the Drum up for $100.00 with no finish remaining, but the internals looked good. Sold it for $300.00 to a fellow out in Mississippi.

Voted on your group buy of "L" drums but don't see my reply listed, also requested purchase of two or three drums if price in projected cost. You mentioned about 200.00 to 250.00. Would like to be counted in if not to late.
Thanks

PK,

For those of us who shoot the lowly M1 and M1A1, would you consider publishing your estimated cost to convert one of the new Kahr L drums for use in an unaltered (i.e., non-"drum cut") M1 TSMG.

Thank you.

Merle is buying some just for that purpose, you should be able to get one all set directly from him. I hope he will chime in here and answer your question. No sense both of us trying to cover to much of the same territory.
