Exclamation AK-47 Drum Mag Help!

I just recently got an Aftermath Kraken and although I love the gun, The hi-cap magazine really irritates me. My hand was actually stiff and sore after a day of constantly winding the mag. Because of this i started looking at different mags. I wanted to be able to have large amounts of bb's at my disposable withought haveing to wind it up constantly and without having many spring fed mags. An auto fed frum mag looked like the right thing for me so I did research through airsoftcanada and other sites and it appears that drum mags for the AK aren't available in Canada. I've found 3 mags from US disributers that appear to be overall good mags.

Out of these mags, which one is better? And if there are any other drum mags that I've missed please let me know.

Thanks

Why not just use low-caps/mid-caps? no winding, no sounding like a bag of pennies. Plus at some games tossing a drum mag on your gun may class it is a S.A.W (or machine gun anyways) by some game organizers. Sorry to get a little off topic, just thought you might wanna be aware.

this may boarder on flaming but don't take offence to it.

If your constantly winding a high cap... you need to aim more bud. I play with one high cap *broke after buying gear but will be going to lows or reals* and i normaly have to wind once per game. And I shoot black/white mix so I actually have to aim and not just paintball aim.

If you through a drum mag on there alot of the hardcore players may turn there noses up at you. I know I get a bit of shunnage just for having a high cap lol.

There are also auto winding high caps avaliable for teh AK, they do have fake bullets in them how ever, dunno if you could ask the company to remove them for you.

I did look into mid cap mags but It would be cheaper and more pratical for me to buy 1 drum mag than to drop a lot more on 5 or more mid caps and a vest to hold them all. I don't play at actual fields anyway so it doesn't matter what it would be classified as.

No offense taken. Surprisingly, I do actually aim but I like to lay down a lot of fire so I go through a lot of rounds. I've never heard of these auto winding high caps, do you know of any retailers in Canada that carry them?

The star mag was another mag I'd looked into but it uses a pressure switch(or whatever it's called) and I'd rather stay away from that. Also, out of the 2 Star US dealers, 1 doesn't even have an online store and the other doesn't have it available online.

This mag looks pretty good, 1 question though. How does it operate? Does it use sound, a pressure switch etc.

Thanks again for the help guys!

if you look on ebaybanned they have the auto winding mag for the ak47, but like I said prob is they have the fake bullets. If you could find a canadian retailer to import them for you that would be your best bet.

If your gonna put drum mags on you should go all out and do a RPD or RPK conversion. The first of the two would be interesting as it would be alot of body work, RPD is a more square with different grips/butt. The RPK is a ak47 with longer barrel and different grips/butt dunno what would be involved with turning your kraken into it.

edit.

Found the link to those magshere

Thanks for the help, I wouldn't mind turning my AK into an RPD but for now I'm going to leave it. I'm also assuing that magazines that have dummy bullets can't be imported? Correct me if I'm wrong.

yah they can not be imported. I wonder though if you called the seller and asked them to remove the bullets... dunno how easy that would be, or if they would even speak english on the other end of the phone.

Thanks for the help Dart! I took another look at mid caps and I think I may pick up some of those instead.
