After looking at these pics
From this thread all four were missing the locking knob and the wheel/paddles.
Got the drums from the Weaponeer group buy today. 3 are in good shape 1 poor and depending on y'alls input may get sent back.
One of the drums is missing what appears to be a sping loaded piece of metal just below the feed lips.
Think this is fixable or should I send it back? If someone wants that drum (one on right) I'll let you have it for $27.25 + shipping.
interesting, is this something that can be fixed?
I've got no idea. That's why I posted here.
That one on the right looks like a loser. I can build a lot of things, but that missing part looks labor intensive. You'd have more into building that part, than the whole drum.
That means mine is on the way. Im not looking forward to receiving mine then.
Has any one received the drum w/o follower yet?
Packratt double check the packing material it came in for the knob. I found two of mine mixed in with the peanuts. The wheel/paddle are missing in my drums too. One had a small spring on the shaft that I think attaches to the wheel/paddle thingy, so i might be missing 4 of those springs too. Unless that small spring was the one that was supposed to be missing.
Not here, though it would of saved IO some money on shipping to put it in the giant box they used for the group buy forty round mags I received the other day. Maybe it will come next week.Originally Posted by Texxut
I'll go fishing in the ghost s**t (peanut) bag for the locking knobs with a big magnet.
I'm seriously thinking about cutting my losses and calling them Monday for a RMA #. I'd rather get hit $20 for their restocking charge than the full $100. Without the wheels there is going to be way too much fabrication needed to get them functional.
I hope they aren't calling the wheel a follower in the drums w/springs. If so ...
