Any of you older guys know if Auto Ordnance west hurley made 10round drums with their guns? I've been looking at a west hurley A1 semi that has a 10round drum supposedly original to the gun. Would appreciate any info.

Thank's,
M1Brian

I think WH made them until about 1999, then Kahr Arms bought the rights to the 27.

There are no serial numbers for the 10 (or 50) round WH drums. They were (and still are) sold sepratley from the gun itself. I do not know of the 10 round drum and 27 being sold as factory "set."

I could be wrong also.

Just my $0.02 worth.

Original to the Gun? Who's to say. Doesn't matter. There are 10Rd Drums out there that are Serial Numbered to the Guns, but these are Commemoratives issued by the American Historical Foundation. And the Drums are available with the same Serial Number for extra cost.
