So i just found out that this exists. The helical mag on top is the main loading method but if you want to you can insert a normal pistol mag in the grip and that will work too (not at the same time obviously). The idea was that if you ran out of ammo you could reload using the same magazines as your pistol.
Though the reliability will be quite questionable and unless there's some kind of switch that can be used to choose which magazine is currently used it could led to catastrophic failure if it tried to fed from both top and bottom.
Appreciate if someone has more info about this.

Are helical mags as bad as drums, in terms of complexity and reliability

Generally speaking, worse.  In terms of reliability specifically, definitely worse.
