Way cool. I would opt for a face shield when firing a weapon to failure.
He didn't stuff it with Twinkies
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.
He also did a Glock and AK meltdown.
I didn't hear everything he said, did he say how many rounds it took to cook it?
830 rounds I think.
Yep....no way I'd be putting my face that close to it without protection!
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
Safer than slingshots
Dont want to ruin a great thread, but when I think of weapon melt-downs, I think of Korean War history; direct fire tank and artillery into human waves.
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?
The barrel failed.
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 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.
Having said that.... it was pretty cool footage!
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.
