More often then not, slapping a drum mag on an AK / M4 / G36 DOES NOT make you a SAW gunner.
Well in terms of actual performance of the gun itself (host-imposed ammo restrictions aside), what I said is correct.
But Shelled is correct. In practice, games will often have ammo restrictions with the amount carried, and many will not allow standard rifles to be used as LMGs with drum mags.
