    How to load Suomi KP 31 Drum magazine

    So I picked up a drum magazine at wanstalls yesterday and figured I might as well show everyone how to load it because I wasn't sure at first so here is a video on how to load the drum magazine as its abit different then the use version due to the pinning of the magazine. They seem to be built like a tank as well.

    Ya that stupid pin really F's up the operation of the drum. Mines very difficult to load as there is alot of spring tension. I may have to unwind it abit to release some of the tension.

    As cool as these things are, that seems like a crapton of work to load a lousy 5 rounds.

    Great vid though!

    Why are we legally required to have mufflers on our car, but legally prohibited from putting them on our guns?

    I found mine was fine you can unscrew the follower then unscrew the screw on the back while holding it then hold it and unwind it 1 or 2 turns then put the follower back in. I found thats its not that bad to load yes it can be a pain because you have to open the magazine to load it and it can slip because its covered in cosmline. Its not to bad for it sure does look cool on the firearm when your shooting it even though its only 5 rounds. There shouldn't be to much tenstion on the spring found mine to be motist at most just get a good grip on it.

    What you need to do is take your gun and magazine to a friendly range in Michigan.

    Remove the pin, and load the drum to full capacity. Shoot LOTS of rounds through your gun.

    Re-pin the drum, and drive back to Canada.

    Post video of all the fun you had.

    thats a tad bit far from BC

    Not a bad idea I still remember the video on youtube 200 round ar 15 dump were someone in squamish shot 200 rounds full auto out of an ar at a local range and posted it on youtube and the people at the range were like that sob did it at our range heck no... Lots of the comments were isn't that the squamish range in bc... then followed by what a dumb ass... I think he got a few years in jail for it as well.

    Yeah, sorry. I don't really know what the magazine laws are in the Western States like Washington.

    I only know they don't have any capacity limits in Michigan.

    You can load it from the top but its work because the follower puts a good amount of pressure on the rounds ie its not easy sticking them in but you can do it.
