This new drum magazine is another product from the new, improved ProMag company, which until recently didn’t have the greatest reputation for producing good quality gear. That’s changed, and the the new ProMag DRM-A9 AK-47 Drum Magazine (7.62x39mm) is a case and point. It’s buttressed with a metal reinforced polymer construction that entails high-strength polymer which has metal reinforcements for the front and rear locking lugs as well as the feed lips. It comes with the ProMag Industries lifetime warranty and a feeding device to assist with loading.
I don’t normally mention rifles in this new products column but the Vepr 12 Gauge shotgun, is an exception because it’s not going to be available in the foreseeable future. Molot products are now on the banned list so after dealers sell the inventory, that’s it. This semi-auto shotgun is imported from the Molot factory in Russia. Based on the RPK standard, the Vepr 12 shares the same characteristics of legendary reliability. (I own an VEPR 7.62 x 39 rifle and can tell you they are incredibly reliable).
This model comes with a high quality walnut thumbhole stock.
The fire control group allows for semi-automatic shooting and the safety is an improved version of the standard AK safety selector. Additional features include: The ability to insert magazines straight into the magazine well (AR style) without the need to cant the magazine (AK style); RPK style Windage adjustable rear sights; Windage and elevation adjustable front sights integrated to the gas block; Picatinny rail incorporated into the hinged dust cover (allows optics mounting); and chrome lined chamber, barrel, gas block, and bolt carrier operation rod for increased corrosion and wear resistance.
(The VPR-12 can be converted to a folding stock shotgun by removing the stock and having a competent gunsmith install the 922r compliant parts.)
The rifle is shipped with one 5-round magazine.
Folding stocks have become hugely popular in the AK space. The problem is their not all of the same quality, nor do they quite function in a manner that you’d want. You start of course with the best quality hinge you can buy. The Circle 10 AK Push Button 2-Bolt Folding Stock Hinge is a nifty little item that allows for much easier folding of your 10-32 2-bolt stocks. It will bolt onto any standard 10-32 2-bolt block such as ACE, Krebs Custom and Stormwerkz. Includes all the mounting hardware you’ll need.
The Vepr is the top of the line when it comes to AKs and I find that a 5 round magazine is ideal to keep the weight down. (The Veprs tend to be pretty robust beasts). The Factory Molot Vepr 12 gauge 5 round magazine is the way to go. These have metal reinforcement around the top of the weapons and are manufactured with grade polymer body, follower, and floor plate.
