    Rommy drum: how long can they stay loaded?

    I really haven't been into drums until lately, Anyhow, I picked up a rommy drum and as some of you know, it's a PITA to load. I also understand it's not all that good on leaving one loaded but I hate loading magazines at the range. So can you leave one loaded for a few days or even a week at a time? Or is it out of the questions?

    I'm looking into some Chinese knocks off but in the mean time I'm going to use what I got..


    Thanks,
    Ray

    According to soviet military manual, these drums are never to stay loaded more then 72 hrs. under any circumstances, or will develop flat spots in the springs! The chin. however can stay loaded under tension forever, without any problems! Recently Bulg. started making chin. clones on chin.
    tooling, i have no idea as to how good those are!

    I've got 2 of the Bulgy drums and they are same or better quality than the Chinese, too bad they sold out so quickly, as I wanted to buy few more ...

    Thanks,

    Well I sent the funds for a Chinese one and now I'm looking to pick up a couple of Bulgy drums. It's my understanding that China sold the tooling to Bulgaria for making drums. So they should turn out just as good as an orginal chinese version.
