Ok, I give, what's the difference?
AK 1k Drum magazine "kits" and AK 1k Drum magazines.
Besides a $50. price difference does anyone know what the deal is?
If it's the full up drum in pieces then I'd rather buy the kit, assemble it here and save me $50 per.

I saw some offered on a UK site:
1. Kit - all parts required to assemble the drum magazine with the exception of one hi-cap magazine, which is required to spool and feed the BBs to the gun.
2. Preassembled - ready made, with the hi-cap mag included.
Dunno how much AK hi-caps cost. But I'd guess around the $50 mark. If they are, then the assembled drum is the better buy, I think.

It looks like it's similar to what TrapperIndustries does where the kit just modifies a regular AK hi-cap. I think they (TI) do a little more permanent work on the original mag, where this 'looks' to be less permanent. TIs holds 1300 though where the Top one only holds 1000.

i saw a drum mag kit at airsoft extreme if that helps at all...all you needed was a standard to make it i believe.
Just FYI, you could save youself the $50 by ordering the kit and mag separately. I know Maryland Airsoft sells AK hicaps for $30. If I'm presuming or missing something, please fell free too correct me.

Well I don't know if its any cheaper but I just have 2 hi-cap mags for my Ak. I hold them in a double mag clip and get 1200 rounds.
