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.
