    hi uzitalk! I had problems with my printer when I moved it, she printed me beautiful ovals when I wanted a perfect round...all my printings being deformated! it took me time to repair and rebuild my firmware because I also forgot to add some important options.

    my last modification on the size and profil of the dummies ammos make them move better inside the drum without blocking when they goes from the drum to the feeding tower. the first ones had not the right sizing and shape.

    you can see the difference about size and shape, now I’ve got a little sanding to do!




    i also made a new feed tower with a different internal shape but it was not necessary because the first one work.

    sounds great!! you got all of it figured out, congratulation . looks as if you will have the only drum in France, that isn't in the military inventory .

    is it still going to have interchangeable feed tower, UZI and AR, like your first post said?

    Hello Uncle Billy,

    I work at the same speed than a snail! it's important to me to finalise the drum functionning! because I past a lot of time onto this adaptation, I don't like failure.

    I do not go to adapting this to an ar15 because i selled my own Mp15.22, other's could do it! I've no interest in this now.

    yes i have a mini drum that helped me to explore many things! that's an exercise that i made to learn.

    Mr Billy I invite you and other's to take a look at the works of this guy, that's a pinnacle!

    I made another axis with a better thickness but I think it twists when I lock the follower by screwing, made a new knob , and also solder a bolt on the axis to place the follower at the right height...i will try the brazing this time when i found the material to do that.

    wow, just when you think you got it, something always gone wrong, happens to me on a number of occasions . hopefully it works this time for you

    yeah, I went and found YOUTUBE videos about miniaturearsenal.com scale model guns......man that guy is a artist, not only does it look like a THOMPSON with all the markings, but it's also full auto as well

    Saw your mention of sanding messing up dimensions. I'm no expert, but I understand you can use an acetone bath to slightly melt 3d prints. My understanding is it smooths them without significantly altering dimensions if you time it right.

    Unfortunately this does not work for PLA.

    I chose a cross of the Templars to make a handle... be perfect to hold the drum and for loading, I finished the black wire, this ABS be shitty but i can test the part.
    but my twin flat spring doesn't satisfy me.

    each parts are clamped by two bolts no glue or welding, for the moment all stay in place and not moving when i load.

    you can see a bolt that i picked up on a bike wheel be the right size and good shape to center the axis on the drum front cover.

    it's amazing what you can make with a 3-D printer

    I like drums, luckily, I live in a country and state that allows you to have hi-capacity drums, so I just modify an existing drum that has the same caliber of the gun I want it to go in, by making a feed tower and attach it to the drum

    here is hoping that the drum you made works 100 percent

    Yes you can freely buy parts that you want and adapting it! this his a real privilége! from my side i had to learn many thing and i wait the next gen printers that print metal.

    the snaildrum is too tiny to put a larger spring, I can modify the drum on the rear for put a second spring with the same size or more larger but i don't want to do it! i prefer starting to modify the m1921 drum because there is more space for a spring! more ammos and it's not so larger when i modify the scaling.

    i will verify the drum scale by positioning some 22lr ammos files rightly sized in the drum.
