    Default what else will fit in a suomi drum?

    I was wondeirng what other calibers will fit in a suomi drum mag? I was specificaly looking for somone to tell me wether a 9x23mm Win cartridge would fit? Also, do the drum, stick and coffin mags all have the same clearance for cartridges, or will certain mag types fit longer OAL loadings than others?

    A .40 S&W will with some minor mods. The drum is deep enough, front to back, to take a 10mm (with the same mods), so I think a 9x23mm will work as well.

    Take care,
    Mike

    I don't think a 9x23 will work, a standard 9mm pretty much fills the depth of the drum and they are 9x19, if you want to do something with the 9x23 round use a PPSh41 drum.

    The PPSh41 drums are nearly identical in construction but are deeper to accomodate the longer 7.62x25 cartridge. The base of the 7.62x25 is close to the 9mm base diameter so something like a 9x23 would probably fit with room to spare.
