MD-20: 20 round drum magazine for Saiga-12 shotgun

picture-8-19.jpg

MD Arms have just started shipping their new 20 round drum magazines for the Siaga 12 shotgun. They cost $215 (+ $3 handling fee).

It look like they have only made enough to satisfy pre-orders and are now taking pre-orders for the second batch.

    I’m thinking about buying a Saiga-12 Shotgun next year to ad to my collection.

  • gyrfalcon

    You would think they would make a drum with more than 20rd capacity considering 10rd magazines cost $50.

    Who would want a 20rd Drum when you can get 40rd’s of magazine capacity for the same cost?

    gyrfalcon, it is a limited market. They are being made in the USA not imported. There would not very much overseas demand. The initial design costs would be a big percentage of the cost.

    “…There would not very much overseas demand. The initial design costs would be a big percentage of the cost.”

    I don’t see any demand for a 20rd Drum with a $200 price tag unless you’re just dealing with full auto ammo eating folks who can’t take a moment to change 10rd mags.

    A better name for this contraption would be a “rolled magazine”. A drum of this size should hold at least 30 rounds.

    I guess only for US citizens. For EU there is only one option.
    Why? Because you can’t buy it directly – us laws limitations.
    Can it get 3” shells? I don’t think so.

  • George Bekiaris

    I like to ask you if the MD-20 drum fit in Molot Vepr 12 and if is working with it how can I purchase it to Greece?
    Thank you!

    • Milos Synek

      Drum for Molot Vepr 12? There is only one producer: Maxrounds. You can buy completed PowerMag for Molot if you want to. But you have to write to them. This item is only on request in Competitor’s Packs.
