The Romanians are the same pattern as the original Russian drums. I haven't seen them much cheaper than the chinese pattern drums that Bulgaria started importing last year.
I think every AK should have one, but as a practical thing, 3 30's in a pouch are alot easier to use and you end up with more ammo that way. Plus, 30 rd mags are cheaper than 1 drum.
I've heard of Korean, Bulgarian, and Romanian winders but never a chinese top loader.
In theory, you should be able to use a speed loader and SKS strippers to loas the russian style drums, but I never tried it.
