    Default RPK-74 plastic drum mag *PIC*

    This is a pic of a Russian belt fed RPK-74 with the plastic drum mag.
    Also a close up pic with the belt box in place.

    They made a few experimental 5.45 drums but not anything substantial.

    I never even seen something like that......a belt fed or mag fed PRK......now that is unusually....where did this picture originate from? a museum? I'm going to take a guess and say this was a experimental thing that dead ended. it just doesn't look like it's too 'soldier proof" and I can just imagine the drum can be broken off very easily

    I assume the links aren't disinigrating--just because there's a link belt.

    I'd love to see the eject side; how do they get the empty out with the link belt as well?

    These are experimental prototypes only.
    I left the pics large so you can get a closer look.

    -- They're two (or three) different rifles.

    The lower is a bullpup (I think) with the charging handle attached to the front of the carrier or piston.

    SHA-WEET!!! That is a very very interesting design. I have been scribbling some designs for a belt-feed 5.45 and that RPK looks very promising. Barely any "meat" on the outside - makes you wonder how reliable it was, if the parts were not powerful enough to cycle or hold up to use. A 5.45 belt feed is definitely on my "to-do" list.

    Makes you wonder how they do it with the gas piston on top - I've ran around and around trying to figure how to do it with the normal alignment blocks - best I can figure is how to do it on the bottom, like an M-14 or something like that.
