One point I noticed, around the perimeter of the drum ( with the cover off ) is a small diameter copper / bronze wire silver soldered in place. Have any of you noticed this before.??? I have never opened a KAHR drum before, so I have none to compare it to.
Now I have to send it off to be modified to fire in the M1....

I'm still waiting for another one to come back from kahr.If this one isn't in good working condition I'm gonna try to get my $$$ back!! I'll just stick with my working X Drum,which sucks but it works.

Thank you for the information - I was wondering about that "feature" on the outside lip of the drum myself.
I have shot the new Kahr drums in my 1928. I felt the spring was weak and I hated all of the clicking during a quarter turn.
However, I did dump it a few times in full auto without a jam. Other times I did have a bit of snag during feeding inside the drum... maybe two or three times out of ten. I am ruling out ammo because it was the same type of brand new commercial ammo in each load.
If you are interested, Numrich (link to drums here) had or has WH era marked "LEO" drums that are not Kahr manufacture that are a bit more correct without the copper ring. I don't know if they have any more for sale, so I would suggest you call them if you are interested before placing an order.
Hope that helps-
