    Assault Rifle Slow-Mo


    (Assault is correct as this is a full auto)
    The Slow Mo Guys fired off a fully-automatic assault rifle and captured its action at 18,000 fps, showing off every detail of the firing mechanism grabbing bullets, placing them in the firing chamber, and letting the casings fly. -

    Interesting. Not sure about that 18,000 fps/720 times slower than normal claim.

    720 times slower---55 gr bullet at 3200 divided by 720= 4.44 feet per second.
    Pretty slow. Anybody see any bullets as they exit the muzzle?

    He said frames per second, not feet per second.

    Interesting how it shows the rifle having a slight counter twist to the spin of the bullet.

    You put it in ( ) not me.
    When it is stamped from the factory assault rifle it will then and only then be an assault rifle until then it is whatever is stamped on the mag well or barrel. Quit passing the lie put forth by the anti's.

    Yup. Guess I wasn't clear 18,000 f(rames) p(er) s(econd), "720 times slower than normal". (Their statement)
    Should be able to see the bullets in flight. Easily.

    What is stamped on the rifle? That is what it is. Assault is what you do with it. So you are blaming the rifle for what a person does with it. Your just keeping the anti's lie alive.

    Assault rifle has an actual definition (not "assault weapon" made up by the antis because the firearms they were trying to classify didn't meet that definition). A select fire 10-22 or bb gun wouldn't meet that definition either (not an intermediate cartridge). Plus AR in AR-15 doesn't stand for assault rifle if that the magwell rollmark you are thinking of. I'm not blaming the rifle for anything, except being the awesome subject in an impressive slow-mo video.

    your kidding .... right. they change the definition of words depending on the direction of the wind ( the definition of is when clinton had his little ta ta with monica )
    assault rifle is a term picked up and ran with by the anti's. ( U.S. M16, the Soviet Kalashnikov the AK-47 etc are just that a m-16 or a ak 47) assault rifle is a term used by people not a rifle at all otherwise how can so many different types of rifles be the one in the same.

    Thats when assault weapon was introduced. As in Assault Weapon Ban of 1994-2004.
    Assault rifle
    was back in 1944 with the Sturmgewehr-44 (storm - or assault- rifle model 1944)

    I guess they didn't have any anti's in 1944 also that doesn't explain how a multitude of rifles have the same name "assault rifle" unlike a ar15 or a m16a1 etc. that have only one rifle type under that name if there are any changes to the rifle (other than minor ones) the name changes m16a2. So once again there is no assault rifle.

    Ok. I'm done arguing about the semantics. Look up the definitions and history of each if you care.
    I do agree that rifles are not alive and therefore have no possibility of moral turpitude. It's up to the sumbubblegum holding it. So I think we are on the same page that the the anti gun crowd trying to give personalities to machines.
