A video of the "extreme test" of the AK-74M Kalashnikov assault rifle appeared on the Web


The Kalashnikov concern tested the strength of the AK-74M assault rifle. To carry out the test, the testers from the concern took the first AK-74M 2014 submachine gun that came across, according to the video, already having a certain degree of wear and equipped 26 stores with 30 cartridges for continuous firing in bursts.

During the test, the concern’s specialist conducted continuous bursts of fire, quickly changing stores, to a complete failure weaponsthat came on the xnumx shot. The reason for the refusal was a rupture of the trunk in the region of the fore foreskin. The forend and the gas tube overlay melted from high temperature, the barrel of the machine gun "led". In this case, the return and trigger mechanisms of the machine and the bolt with the slide frame remained intact.

According to the requirements of the Ministry of Defense, the Kalashnikov assault rifle must withstand 180 rounds in non-stop burst mode. This rate of fire is not normal for a weapon and sooner or later leads to its destruction.

- stated in the concern.

We add that according to this video, the AK-74M assault rifle not only complied with the requirements of the military department, but also exceeded them three times.

        It does not take a week, it is obvious that the performance characteristics of the machine have changed by the end of the test laughing
        Well, at least the news should be new. If Kalashnikov’s PR specialists consider VO to be a third-rate resource on which content can be uploaded a week after its placement on other resources, then VO users should tell fi to such PR specialists, because in this case all the cream from this content went to other resources. For content, uniqueness and / or efficiency of placement are key concepts.

          but it never occurred to you that someone does not jump from resource to resource in search of "fresh food", but from time to time visits their own - loved ones, and if the information is interesting, then it is absolutely purple that she is "not a girl", and where exactly it was first "capitalized".

            How it works (example):
            A person flips through Yandex.news, sees an interesting topic, opens, sees a list of sources - there VO. He does this several times, notices that he often turns to the source of VO - switches to VO (there, you see, it is interesting) and becomes a user. VO - prfit (users = money), an interesting source for a person. But if VO appears in the source lists after a week - the user and VO do not find each other

      And it is precisely the Soviet and Russian ones that the rest are valued all over the world, this is a copy and not the best .. The mechanism itself is certainly unique, but the alloy has become the optimal barrel and other details .. This is clearly monitored in our OTC! hi

        after the 3rd store I think (90 shots) it’s already losing a bit of strength, because the barrel is warming up and getting wider by 01-02 mm, but still does not spit. spit starts when the barrel will burn your hands. but if you give the trunk a break, then you’ll shoot 8 stores for yourself. and for continuous fire there are light machine guns and easel, with thicker and longer trunks, and a receiver. I don’t know at all how in Russia, but it’s forbidden to put auto fire on us. whether it’s anything at least FN at least G3 at least M-16. even on machine guns after 2-3 tapes change the barrel. so we had 2 tapes of 50 rounds each and no one would let them fire in one turn, this was only a last resort (if there was a clash) because then all the weapons that were involved were decommissioned. even if you didn’t have time to shoot him. it is so with us, but in Russia I don’t know, I didn’t serve there.

              Well, I looked in. The barrel life was increased due to original design solutions for cooling the barrel. But he was a machine gun in order to let out the max without problems. On the AK there is no such thing because of TK by weight. hi

                Convective forced air (due to the vacuum created by the shot near the muzzle), this barrel cooling system was used by Lewis in his machine gun (in the film White Desert Sun, Comrade Sukhov uses a Lewis machine gun). Air passes between the barrel and its casing in the direction of the muzzle end.

    According to the requirements of the Ministry of Defense, the Kalashnikov assault rifle must withstand 180 rounds

    from the high temperature, the barrel of the machine gun "led"

    A stupid test, thoroughly propaganda and having nothing to do with the real application .. It makes sense to test how much the aiming range and energy of the shot will not suffer. Who needs this trash?
    Product of the 14th year. I don't know how true, but I heard that the quality of AK barrels has dropped dramatically lately. Who knows, correct, if not right. But only if someone knows how things are with AK, it's really interesting ... patriots, choking with delight about "we are ahead of the rest", please do not worry ..

    Nothing. But the quality of all these "almost originals" is very different from the native AK.
    For example: during the Ossetian-Ingush conflict, my classmate went to see his grandmother in some village in the North Ossetia. He knocked on the locked gate for a long time, and then the grandma opened the gate with an AK in her hands. The comrade almost raised his hands up - it was so unexpected. Then, over dinner, when shooting suddenly started somewhere, the grandmother said: “Do you hear, granddaughters, the Ingush are shooting.
    - Why did you decide that the Ingush?
    - And they have a lot of Chinese, Romanian and Bulgarian Kalash, they have a completely different sound of a shot. But now the AK of the Soviet assembly, these are ours, see the difference? "
    A friend, no matter how hard he tried, could not distinguish. And granny did it easily.
