    Thumbs up 80 round makarov magazine

    I saw some pictures of an 80 round makarov magazine at http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...akarov-pistol/ Does anyone have any other information about this, or by chance could identify the drum used? I think this would be interesting to make.
    Here is the article and pictures.


    Eighty Round Magazine For Makarov Pistol

    Posted November 6, 2013 in Pistols by Steve Johnson with 51 Comments
    Tags: Makarov, pistol, russia



    A Russian inventor has developed an eighty round 9x18mm magazine for the Makarov PM pistol. He writes (in Russian) that the Makarov is still in use by police in Russia not because they cannot afford new pistols but because the Makarov is genuinely loved. He says the problem with them is that standard magazine only holds eight rounds and extended magazines only hold up 12 rounds. Twelve rounds is not a lot by todays standards, especially when you consider that the 9x18mm is about 30% less powerful than a 9x19mm NATO. His solution was to develop a drum magazine that holds eighty rounds.




    On a side note, the 9x18mm, despite being almost 50 years younger than the 9mm Luger/Parabellum, was intentionally designed to be anemic because the Soviet Army wanted a simple blowback pistol with a fixed barrel.





    Many thanks to Val for the tip.

    I think your right since it sticks out so far toward the front, but I think a Suomi drum will work too

    Hey, he looks like an American asshat. Shoot him in the foot and when he's down cut off his head, helmet and all, and raise it on a pike.

    I'd have to figure out what all the guy did to make that one and to make sure it worked before I'd even think of making any for others. If I do ever make one and get it to work - I'll let you know. Looking at the pictures posted again, I do think many of us here at gunco could make nicer looking welds than what are shown in the pictures above.

    I paid $65 for a fifty round ProMag 1911 drum back in 2008, but have never tried it. Reviews are not good.

    If anyone has a ppsh41 drum (or suomi drum) can you check to see how a 9x18 round fits?

    heres a 9x18 in a suomi drum, as long as the mag its feeding into is single stack all you have to do is grind out the feedlips of the drum and weld together, start with tacks as you may have to play with drum to mag angle
