Glock With A 50 Round Drum Magazine

Sturmgewehre takes a look at a new 50 round drum magazine from SGM Tactical:

It would be quite satisfying to load an entire box of ammunition into one magazine.  As I was typing that I was also thinking how much burning through a few mags of that would cost though :/

SMG Tactical doesn’t have the magazine up on their website yet (FAIL #1!) and their website looks like shit (FAIL #2!).  Midway USA is taking pre-orders of the mag though, with the price set at $69!  After seeing the above vid, I’d say you would definitely get your money’s worth if you have a 9mm Glock.

Not having last shot hold open is kind of a let down.  I’m pretty sure they could find a way to incorporate that into the design, considering the way that is engaged on the Glock isn’t very complicated.  Normally I would have complained that the actual mag part that goes into the gun isn’t an actual Glock magazine… my concerns were relieved though when I saw it seemed to function perfectly, The Beta C-MAG used an actual Glock magazine, but it no longer seems to be available for sale (and from what I remember was significantly more money).  Non-steel reinforced magazine lips may be a bit of a concern for those that operate hard, but my guess is they chose a polymer that can take a lot of abuse.  That ratcheting action used to load the magazine is genius.

Thoughts?

Solid video from MAC, once again. He does the reviews without too much irrelevant blabbering. Loved the ending!

Completely immpractical… But I do like the feature it has to make loading easier.

There’s a bunch of carbines and conversions that use Glock magazines. I wonder how well this would work in, say, a Kel-Tec.

why do i need 17 more rounds in a device that isn’t tested when i can carry 2 slim 33 round magazines that can handle anything moving?

I’d rather go for a Glock with Beta-C 100rounds magazine, as seen in James Bond Skyfall…
But you gotta have a Glock 18, if not full auto your finger will really hurt !

Why would you have to turn this into the “authorities”?

when the man comes to collect the high caps, dude, they will rope down from black helicopters and take it from you, along with high fructose corn syrup and bic pens.
They know you have them, they have monitoring devices in the big base of those compact florescent light bulbs. *straightens tinfoil hat*

I’m more concerned about the shape shifting lizard race who have been posing as politicians and celebrities right under our noses, feeding off of mankind’s fear and insecurity as their primary means of sustenance.

Are you people really afraid of the “gun grabbers”? Was all that shit about “out of my cold dead fingers” just bullshit? IF the Statists come for your guns defend them with your life. If they take them while you comply meekly then you are already dead

I bought one of these and love it , I have been checking for a while before i bought about if the barrell would hold up on the glock. I found out the drum would not hurt the barrell at youl could not hurt them! One thing If you buy one then no one will take anything from you if you have any balls !!! I am now getting my class III so I can get my fully auto for it. Now who with me?????
