    Way cool. I would opt for a face shield when firing a weapon to failure.

    And I wouldn't be holding it by the mag. Either,, a blow and it usually makes a mess of the mag well and anything else in the way. Weakest point in the entire system, open to expulsion of nasty stuff going real fast into a magazine full of other stuff that goes BOOM!

    Two things I got fro. That video, the ar-15 is easy to control in rapid fire, amd a muzzle break really helps recoil. After it blew off the rifle got way shaky.

    I didn't hear everything he said, did he say how many rounds it took to cook it?

    Here's my question. A full auto AR isn't an AR is it? Wouldn't that be a M16?

    I'm guessing he didn't think it was as bad as holding on to that glowing foregrip:rolleyes:

    It looked like the muzzle break just unscrewed and came off, and is it me or was he using wolf ammo?
    Did it fail from heat or residue build up?

    A bunch of twinkies feel left out. He should have used some and do his part in keeping them on the market.

    Or maybe not so I can lose weight.

    Now THATS going to leave a mark!
    Perhaps an angled backstop is in order? Kind of reminds me of some of the idiots I've seen shooting in rock pits.

    I
    I don't know what my problem is, but that video makes me laugh; must be the residuals from all my head injuries....I was expecting a FTF & a cook-off to occur in the AR demo....those were always fun.

    IMO, unless you're in a panic fire/"broken arrow" type situation where you have hordes of the enemy about to swamp you.... you should get "dexter slapped" upside your head and a foot in the arse for melting down a perfectly good weapon like that.

    o_O


    Having said that.... it was pretty cool footage! :D

    Which probably makes this video an argument against getting a thin barrel.

    It started life as a plain AR. But as he explained he replaced the lower with a M16 lower, and changed the bolt carrier group out with the SRC Relia-bolt carrier group. Those changes made it capable of full auto fire.
