Kahr C Drum?

There's no price listed, just "To be announced"
It looks to me like someone at Kahr is looking into making new C drums...

I suspect as the rumors of the Kahr Arms C drum become more frequent, followed by reports of the actual citing of some prototype drums and possible "available to the public" dates, the number of West Hurley type C drums on the market will greatly increase and the price will decrease as those who purchased West Hurley C's for investment purposes attempt to bail out with some profit.

If you read the shotgun news you will find many ads for the "New" thompson drums and different prices. Reports are that most don't work, don't feed and jam.
Many readers not knowing the workings of making a drum think you just pop it out of a mold, or something - first you have to find an investor with money to invest in a project which may not be completed before the next ban, if one take place, then there has to been a demand - far more that just the readers of this site. Recovery of the investment would be slow. This is not a place a smart investor would place their money unless they do it on the cheap - just look at Kahr when they attempted to make a L drum on the cheap.
Expect to see this question about "will Kahr make a C drum" many times in the future - If a drum is made, expect to see a price that will recover the investment as soon as possible - I would bet around $800. to $1,000 The price has been set by what a WH drum now brings, one that needs rebuilding to work. If a person wants a C drum they will pay the price.
