If so; what condition; manufacturer? etc.

I explained to the man present what it was and he said he didn't know anything about them but they had some in their catalog for that price. I explained that the catalog drums were listed as genuine WWII new surplus and he said he didn't know anything about that.
I don't think this was representative of what was in their catalog, but I haven;t seen a drum in their store in years!
I asked another guy who recognizes me whenever I shop there and he said this wasn't one of the WWII drums, and that they had heard nothing new on them.
Sooooo, we wait some more.
Unless you want a $400 Kahr drum!! (not me!)
I'll try to keep you posted if I hear anything new!

The only reason I bought a membership was to take advantage of the (Original WWII) drum deal. I’m expecting my usual lump of coal for Christmas. However, I’m going to be an unhappy camper if I get a Kahr drum in the mail

I must have talked to the same person at Sportsman's Guide Outlet as you did.

Usually when the guide offers something for sale they either have it in their warehouse or incoming. These were apparently ordered and have yet to clear customs, or they would be in the hands of we who ordered them. And as to whether they'll clear customs is anyones guess, although all the other mags, pouches and stuff apparently from Russia have been on the market for over a year!
I even saw a bunch of (Russian?) 20 rd. mags and pouches (brand new) at the Big Tulsa show last spring, and the person selling them was set up right next door to a BATFE table!! (yep! Agents at the show! Asked them about a pending transfer and they said they were only there to answer questions!)
My best guess is that the Guide will come through with some pretty nice drums (and I hope maybe in the original factory boxes?? )
We shall see....
BTW, if anyone is considering ordering anything from the Guide and wants it "checked out" first (for quality or condition...) let me know. Email me the order numbers and I'll check it out next time I get over there. I usually try to hit the store every month or so......
