Hello Vepr people :) I am new to Veprs ( mine should be here within a couple weeks) and very new to this forum. So, I have a question, while I have been reading and learning and discovering the many wonderful things available for the greatest weapon of all time, I have noticed that magazines, some more than others, are quite expensive. I also noticed that the magazines that are 10 and 12 round are quite lengthy, which is understandable due to the physical size of the round itself. I have seen several of the large 25/30 round drum magazines, and they too are quite large and bulky. So, here's the million dollar question... Has anyone ever seen an aluminum drum mag, for 10 or 12 rounds? ( I thought I saw one somewhere, but unable to find it by searching it) Question #2, has anyone considered building such a magazine, yes it would be way expensive, but possibly worth it for size and mobility?

I would like some opinions, any available data, possible negatives etc...

Thanks for having me... :)

I believe it's the Max Rounds from Europe. Every now and then you can find them on Funbroker.

I’ll check out maxrounds, I did find some for Saiga only, and I believe that I read where you really can’t use Saiga mags in a Vepr, but you can use Vepr mags in Saiga. Thank you very much for the information!!

The Izhmash magwell mags will work fine in a V12. They fit into mine just fine. The OEM V12 mags took a small modification to rear lug to fit into the IZ 433a and 030 series with magwells.

Maxxrounds drum is availible for Vepr 12 by special order at rusmilitary. It costs £599 british pounds which equates to roughly $809.00 U.S. dollars. Also its a 20rnd aluminum drum.

Yes, I have seen these, thank you, and it's due to the size / form factor that I was interested in a 10 or 12 round drum. The 25 round plastic drums are HUGE, and the 20 round aluminum are slightly smaller, but in my opinion way overbuilt, and ridiculously expensive. Even a standard 10 or 12 round magazine are so long that they are difficult to use prone, my thought is that a 10 or 12 round drum could be easily made much smaller, and shorter than the standard magazines.

Since I have been unable to find anything, I am in the process of designing something and will post pictures of the prototype when completed... Wish me luck?... :)

Good luck! Hopefully someone will develop a mini drum.

ah,
Hold up Brother before you post pic of ANYTHING FUNCTIONALLY COOL/NW that YOU truly develop. At thhat millisecond it becomes public domain and can flush your patent application, which you're gonna need to attract/protect investors. Unless your 're one of Trump's illegitimate sons with DNA-match paperwork/backing: injection-molding or stamping dies, and even CNC contract work are hellatiously expensive for privateers.
I'd love such mini-drums for my VEPR 12 and still see enough marketability to even maybe make a personal hard cash investment BUT YOU HAVE TO PROTECT IDEA/PRODUCTION INVESTMENT. PM me and I'll put you in touch with a TX buddy who's patent fn-savy and has a nearly 10-year old specialty aftermarket firearms parts business.
