"Duncan MacLeod Among Automata": a test for the "survivability" of the AK-103 caliber 7,62 mm


Experiments on the "survivability" of domestic rifle weapons going on. A favorite weapon for experimenters in this regard is the Kalashnikov assault rifle. The “survival” experiments with dozens of practically non-stop bursts of 30 cartridges concerned various versions of AK. Now in the program "Destroyers of weapons" tests are shown AK-103 caliber 7,62 mm


The specialist of the Kalashnikov Concern, Georgy Gubich, armed himself with the AK-103, dozens of stores with ammunition for it, as well as a fire extinguisher and started firing, the stop in which was carried out only when the machine was reloaded.

As a target, birch blocks with a thickness of 150 mm were selected.

On the 360-m shot, the machine becomes difficult to reload, and the experimenter uses the “on the floor” option.

After the 540 shot, the weapon barrel acquires a bright scarlet color. The machine starts to smoke.

After the 600 shot, open flame languages ​​appear.

On the 690 cartridge, fire intensifies.

“It’s getting scary,” Gubich states.

After the 720 shot, firing is already without a forearm with the machine burning open.

Experimenter about the machine:

This is Duncan MacLeod

    Here is such a hard job as an employee of the advertising department in the Kalashnikov concern.

      And who cares about such a question - on which shot does the machine break down? Those who are puzzled, "what will happen if you throw a crowbar on the train on the go?"

    Great test. I own saiga mk in this caliber. When choosing a weapon, he ranged between 223 and 7.62x39 and chose the latter because of its high resource and versatility. Somewhat no regrets about the choice.

    Beautiful, however. For a caliber of 7,62, a larger diameter barrel is used, the internal heat transfer surface of which is proportional to the square of the radius of the cartridge (roughly - more than 2 times). Therefore, AK barrels under 7,62 mm more easily tolerate such an extreme firing regime. We look forward to continuing with a sufficient number of cartridges - at least 5 zinc and with plastic removed in advance - it will still burn and fall off.

    A more interesting question is, after how many shots accuracy starts to fall and how much.
