"Purchased this (only thematically-appropriate AK drum in stock at the time) for my Polarstar-ed G&P RPK.
Exterior Finish: 4/5
Solid metal construction, no rattle or looseness of the casing. Fill lid on the top was a little floppy, but not an issue once the magazine is in place.
Interior Assembly: 2/5
Wires are glued, not soldered together, and are extremely thin gauge (maybe 22AWG at best). Battery case is open topped and just sits between two nubs in the mechanical housing, no positive retention to keep it from dropping down into the motor and gears. Plate intended to keep BBs out of gear compartment too narrow to perform function. Pouring 100 or so BBs into the feed section and shaking the mag around to simulate running resulted in approximately 1/3 of them ending up in the gearbox section, where if the mag attempted to feed, would jam up and break the gears.
Gun Fit: 0/5
Not only was the distance between the alignment and locking nubs of the drum magazine almost 1/4" shorter than any other AK magazine I could find, it completely failed to lock into the RPK at all, and would fall out with the slightest jostle. Feeding was non-existent, even when I compensated for the lack of positive lock in the mag well by holding the mag in place and aligning the output of the mag with the hop feed tube.
No auto-wind or sound control wind is available, and the plug for the push-button is placed at the bottom of the drum, instead of the more logical position of near the feed ramp, forcing the user to have the short cable stretched across the rear of the magazine in the open and be taped(?) to the handgrip so it can reach anywhere.
Returned for refund as defective the same day received, with full refund and paid RMA shipping from Evike. This is a real shame, because it's one of the only accurate RPK drum magazines on the market. Maybe when the other one on Evike comes back in stock, I'll try it out, but I may have to go elsewhere to find a true RPK drum...
"I should have read this review first. I bought it for my CYMA AK-47. It fits badly. Wobbles like it's too small. Won't feed. I called for a return. Even though the web sight states it will fit, they said it's my fault and I pay shipping.
Don't buy this unless you want it for looks. Go find the twin elect mag. This is junk and I'm surprised they still sell it.
"It looked like a good deal, and great quality, but the gears do strip easily. I had it for a few hours before, the metal wire snapped and the gears no longer spun.
