    Interesting novelty.

    Not to turn this into a "Hi-Cap" flame war, but I really don't see the point. That's not something you could conceal and when I go to the range I load mags for 5 shot groups. My .38 Super will hold 28 and I think I've only filled the mags twice. But then I never really got into mag dums and spray and pray.

    I'm sure there's lots of people who will be all over these but not something I need.

    I’ve got two sisters; one older who is “conservative” and ‘pro gun’ and one who is younger and “liberal” and ‘anti gun’. Might be a fun thing to buy, put it in a 1911 and just happen to leave it out on the kitchen table the next time she comes to visit.

    Apologies for derailing, but I'd really love to see pictures of this setup, if you don't mind. 28 rounds of superb... impressive.

    Yes, I bought one just for the heck of it....at a gunshow.

    Its a novelty ....not realistic.

    The spring inside...binds a little / they don't feed very well.
    They will not seat in a gun with a mag well...the top of the drum flange hits mag well before it seats.
    They're heavy ...obviously ....so it really screws up the balance of your gun...

    But in a weird way...they are fun once in awhile...as a novelty.

    I think one would look cool in that 1911 carbine they make.
