Elite Police Unit Officer Spotted With a Sophisticated Gun in Kakamega

Today afternoon, an elite Police unit managed to gun down five suspected gangsters in Makhokho Market. This market is found in Kakamega County on the Kisumu-Kakamega highway.

What was unique about this police unit is that they are rarely called into action unless it's a really dangerous situation. This one was one of those moments where they had to be there.

What captivated this writer is the sophisticated gun that one of the officers was carrying. It's an AK 47 modified rifle to be able to carry a drum magazine.

A drum magazine is able to carry more bullets and in the event of a shootout, one won't have to reload a new magazine each time. This saves time and also ensures that the officer is well supplied with ammunition.

The drum magazine is however, cumbersome with an AK47 and the gun needs to be modified to enable this magazine fit. It is also quite heavy so one has to be very strong.

This drum magazine is mostly seen in American gangster films if you are a fan of those. They can carry from 75 rounds to 300 depending on the magazine.
