      Согласен…в статье они и описаны. Здесь картинка просто для привлечения внимания. Correct, this is a pan magazine. The picture is just to get attention, while the article shows actual drums.

    I agree with the general premise of the article. Well designed magazines that are maintained have come a long way from earlier pieces.

    I have a sideline business and my customers are always asking for “no maintenance” equipment. I usually just nod and say that once I invent it they will be the first customer I call. There is no such thing as no maintenance. It is not a burden to load and unload magazines on a periodic basis. On our last deployment, I had each member of my platoon paint the bottoms of one complete set of magazines white. Each week, we rotated between the white and unmarked magazines. Never had a stoppage due to magazines.
