I took my new "L" drum out to test it. The one I bought off of Gunbroker last week.
It is not marked with any "LEO" markings but it does have "For Export Only" stamped on the back. I compared it to my other WH drum and it matches it very well in the thickness of the metal and in every other way I can find. I compared it to a "Pre-ban" (his discription) non-marked drum that my local gundealer just got in. The drum lid on mine is noticeably thicker metal. In other ways it looks the same, though mine seemed to be a shade heavier over all.
Now for the acid test...I took it out loaded with 50 rds of Wolf ammo and did a drum dump.. flawless....I loaded it back up and did controlled bursts .....flawless....I loaded the last box I brought with me and dumped it.. not one hiccup....I'm very happy with it and I think I got a good buy since the reports of the "LEO" Numrich drums that were listed by LH were pretty poor.
Maybe I paid a little too much.. but it works.. and that's tha name of that tune...
