    X14 50 rd drum for M1A

    The X14 drum just came in today and I am pretty impressed. It is built like a rock out of aluminum and steel, no plastic. It holds 50 rds, but isn't all that
    big, about the same lenght as the standard 20 rd mag. The picture is of a Springfield M1A, Bassett scope mount, Leupold VX3 scope with CDS turrent, and
    of course the X14 drum. I also added a bipod. I'll get a chance to test fire the drum the next day or so, but don't anticipate any problems as it has a very
    good rep.

    I quickly went thru the manuel and saw instructions for disassembly. They say for routine cleaning rinse with hot soapy water and natural bristle brush around feed area. They don't recommend disassembly
    unless it requires "intensive" cleaning. The drum is coated with Cerakote ceramic paint. If lub is needed they recommend graphite. Still reading manuel

    I'm thinking you are A) prepping for a huge horde of zombies, or B) planning to stock an extra large freezer with venison. j/k I know you are not a game law violator.

    Looks impressively ominous. Realizing my toy collection is incomplete without an M14/M1A.
    Caution, tipping point approaching. Stand by, please.

    Yes, I have disassembled an X-14 magazine. It was easy using the manual. I did not need to do it but curiousity got the better of me. Yes, it functioned flawlessly after it was reassembled.

    No matter what logic is being applied and how low my funds are, I still want one of these

    No regrets buying one, actually wish I had two, thanks for the vid. Two things I should point out is although it isn't hard to load, it does take a little time, the second
    is they don't recommend leaving it fully loaded for extended periods of time.
