Do drum magazines count as real-cap or high-cap

hi guys I had a simple question. are drum magazines considered high-cap mags? or are they real-cap? I just wanted to know if you could use them in games requiring only real-cap mags

Thanks in advance.

They're generally considered hi-caps and some games have restrictions on how/who can use them (i.e., in a real-cap game they're usually restricted to support weapons and special rules may apply to them, such a how many BBs can be use in them).

But each group/organizer/game can set rules as they see fit, so you need to check with them.

"Usually" restricted to proper LMGs only. Even high cap magazines (approximately 300 rounds) are banned or restricted at most games.

If you're playing weekend pickup games most places don't usually care unless it's a special event or the organizer wants to setup the game/experience for a certain kind of player.

If you're going for a milsim it's usually a no go, daysims or shorter half day scenarios it might have special rules (eg. must take out mag before winding the hicap then reload or something).

Some airsoft guns have drum mags whose real-world counterparts don't have drums avail as well. The skorpion comes to mind. No real drum mag for that one lol.
