Great fit and finish. No wierd feed lips. Solidly bilt. Functions flawlessly.
thanks PK biggrin.gif . Scared the hell out of the other shooters at my local indoor range!! A 50 rnd dump indoors sure is loud!!
A little tight at first but worked in the receiver just fine after about three trys.

Got mine, too. Fit snuggly in the '28, better than the WH drum by far. Did not compare it side by side with the WWII drum, but did not see anything unusual. Wonder if it would cycle blanks? Came with a third hand, but I only have two arms. Didn't look at the second Kahr, yet. If they work, cool beans. If they don't, I could use the paper weights. Thanks, PK.

Guys,

Are these the replacement drums from Kahr via PK or from the original group buy? I'm wondering when I can expect my replacement drums. Glad yours are running fine. My WH LEO drum was tight but runs great thru 21's and 28's. The finish and quality were lacking though.

This is a group buy drum, but it is from the second shipment I guess. It is not a replacement drum. I looks like the Seymour Products drum I have.
The finish is darker than a WH and does not look as thin as the Kahr X drum finish.

I got mine too.

Talk about tight. Needed 2 hands to get it (the drum) in.

In fact only able to get it working when inserted from the right side. Inserting from the left side kept getting stuck.

Well, I had hoped to recieve a good one but I must send it back. It looks good, and fit good, but it will hold only 49 rounds sad.gif . That last bullet will not go in due to the spiral guide being incorrect. No way can I tweak this. Lets see if Kahr makes it right with me.

If, this brand new drum didn't fit/work I wonder if they would refund the money as opposed to having to go through the hassle and contant shipping charges.
