Abstract : The entrance and exit units to an ammunition feed system are provided with a foolproof timing arrangement wherein the units and drum are both in timed position when being mated together and also when being disengaged. The exit and/or entrance units are held in timed position by a spring loaded lever while disconnected and the lever is automatically released when the unit is mounted to the drum, allowing the shafts to turn with the drum. The drum may be held in timed position when the entrance and/or exit units are disconnected or may be allowed to rotate by releasing spring loaded mounting pins. (Author)
