The gun is mine but the collection belongs to a long time member here that does not post although someday I will have all my stuff displayed and share pictures I will leave it up to him to share the rest of his pictures. He has a very nice collection FWIW. The drums will be made to fit the standard adapter in the cradles so yes 30/50 combo, 1917A1 tripod and a few others and they should hold 300-400 rds. so they will be heavy fully loaded.Nice display and collection by the way - a photo tour of the rest of your collection would be in order sometime I would say.
how would you plan to attach it to the gun / mount ? the home made set up you have is nice but the drums would need to fit to the standard cradles somehow- probably the same type of slide in bracket that is used for the tombstone drums on the 50 cradles or a MK93 three point mount ? Perhaps the drum could be made and use adapter plates to various cradle assemblies ? I like the idea, and if you can get production numbers up it will bring unit cost down. That would be a cool device for other guns - ANM2, 1917A1 etc. Do you have a target capacity in mind? Drums built with belts AND links in mind?
Figured you in for 4 of them for that rare quad 30 mount you will be gettingI could probably be talked into one...
