  How many rounds fired does it take to melt the barrel on an M16?
Recently, New Mexico Democratic congressional candidate Pat Davis (a former cop) bluntly declares "Fuck the NRA" in a new campaign ad, knowing that political ads on Arizona TV can't be censored that gave him the opportunity to legally drop the F-bomb on air. Fox News host Tucker Carlson (patrician pundit and heir to the Swanson frozen-food fortune) invited him on his show and completely lost his mind during this interview while he was screeching that a bump-stock equipped AR-15 can't possibly fire at 150 rounds in 15 seconds because it "would instantly melt the barrel" so it's impossible.

150 rounds in 15 seconds is 600 rounds per minute. The M16 assault rifle (the military rifle that the civilian semi-auto AR-15 is based upon) has a rate of fire of 700 to 950 rounds per minute (cyclic sustained fire). So this bump-stock equipped AR-15 fires at a much lower rate than the M16. And yes, there are 150-round magazines for the AR-15 (they cost a fortune, though; around $450).

  ULTIMATE AR-15 MELTDOWN! https://youtu.be/BSizVpfqFtw
In this video we attempt to burn out an AR-15 upper on an M16 lower. We are testing the durability of not only the upper receiver assembly but few specific products as well including the SRC Relia-Bolt BCG, Geissele Super Gas Block, and one of the most affordable AR barrels on the market from Faxon Firearms.

The results may surprise you.

830 rounds until the barrel fried and erupted out the side.

  Cheap AR-15 Meltdown! https://youtu.be/7cr9e3N6HEw
Special thanks to our friends at Quiet Riot Firearms in McDonough, GA for providing the M16 lower for this video. In this Meltdown, we take an entry level upper from Palmetto State Armory and shoot it full auto until failure. It's very interesting to see how various levels of quality in the components really make a difference in these tests. Stay Tuned, much more on the way.

440 rounds until the gas tube melted.

  Ultimate AK Meltdown: Reloaded! https://youtu.be/EwSJiAwoMpY
In this video we meltdown a *REAL* AK-47, a Russian VEPR. The results are simply astonishing.
895 rounds until it seized up.
- 630 more than the WASR-10 and 65 more than the AR-15.

  AK-74 Meltdown! Revisited https://youtu.be/vDP5qi2fHSY
Take two...let's see what happens to the old 5.45x39mm VEPR from the first video with some fresh ammo.
692 rounds until a bullet blew out the side of the barrel, behind the gas block. It fired 799 rounds in the previous video.
