The British Army adopted the 'FN Minimi' as a light support weapon like much of the Western worlds militaries for the last few decades. The Minimi is designed to put down large volumes of automatic fire for suppression and needless to say is hungry for ammo. These 'drums' in particular are the smaller size carrying 100 rounds - less rounds total but much more easy to carry and maneuver with (especially over the large hard plastic drums). A term for these often lovely coined for these from soldiers is a 'nutsack.' The British military has since pulled the Minimi in favour of the larger 7.62 weapon systems due to limited combat range in Afghanistan. Good news for surplus enjoyers!
A clip catches onto the bottom of the Minimi securely and plastic feed lips provide a solid feed for the belts of ammo. For loading up the drum the bottom has a heavy duty zipper that opens all the way around for loading up a belt neatly. This zipper secures with a snap dome to ensure a heavy belt of of brass doesn't end up falling out and dragging on the ground.
Whether you are fortunate enough to live in a country where you can own a minimi, fancy some airsoft DIY or are a avid British military collector, grab a DPM minimi 'nutsack' today!
