Experiment: how many continuous shots can be made from RPD


Georgy Gubich continued his "destructive" experiments when firing at the firing range. In the new issue of the program "Destroyers weapons»From the Kalashnikov concern, intensive firing from the RPD (Degtyarev light machine gun), which was adopted in the distant 1948, is being carried out.


The experiment uses a tape version of the supply of cartridges of 7,62 mm caliber. In total, 11 tapes of 100 rounds were prepared - 1100 ammunition for almost continuous shooting.

Before shooting, the experimenter invited users to speak out about how much this machine gun will "live", what load it will withstand, how many continuous shots it can be made from it.

The specialist notes some problems with rate of fire, which he associated with a slow "tape". According to him, the reason may be that he holds the tape in his hand.

Already at 200 shots smoke appeared, which did not come from under the forearm, but from the barrel. Gubich notes quite substantial returns during the shooting.

After 600 shots, the experimenter hears loud pops:

Previously, they were the harbingers of an imminent rupture of the trunk.

An open flame appears on the 700th shot.

      Well, the "memory of the ancestors" has been lost - GAU has done these "acts of vandalism" for a long time .... and more than once.

        In 2014-15, old, rather battered by time and exploitation models of weapons "hailing from the 40s-50s" in the conflict in the Donbass, under the hour also passed similar tests. And successfully.

        Soviet weapons. Iron.

      Fine. The old RPD is not the worst among those tested for survivability.

      Show in the spirit of the Americans.


      And the Americans in the show understand. Will you deny the fact that such videos popularize domestic weapons among the widest layers of the runet population? And then all NATO and the NATO ...

        And I do not care about the general population, all these spinero-nanists and other vapers. As well as their views on domestic / NATO weapons. When the nudge begins, they will not be able to hold either one or the other. And the Americans in the show understand, no doubt. And it was the American show that made a significant contribution to the collapse of the USSR, we must not forget about it.

          I understand you support this? Well, what does youth turn under the influence of American shows, as you put it, into “spiner-onanists and other vapers” and “when the chucker begins, they will not be able to hold either one or the other”?

          Because otherwise they would not have opposed a domestic product that is aimed at opposing the information influence of the West, at popularizing both weapons and, in particular, military service.

            I do not see anything useful in such vidos. The upbringing of Russian people should take place in Russian, and not by mutilating the American video with the replacement of ARoks with Kalash and RPDs. What can be the opposition to information influence if the information and ideological value of this video is zero?

              rather than wrecking the American video with the replacement of ARok on Kalash and RPDshki


              Copying is one of the main development paths. Of course, if this is the correct copying of the right things. Because with such a position both PPSh and AK would not exist, the technical solutions used in them are not unique, but copied.

              What can be the opposition to information influence if the information and ideological value of this video is zero?


              This is zero for you. But Americans in this matter understand much more and therefore they have had such videos and still shoot a lot, and as you yourself admitted, "And it was the American show that made a significant contribution to the collapse of the USSR."

              Just the same informational and especially ideological value of this video is very high against the background of the widespread dominance of the American information product and American weapons. Vasya, 16 years old, will know that Kalash is not at all unpretentious in comparison with the M16, but to see that the AK-103 withstood more than 1400 shots. And he will remember this, and he will want to hold it in his hands and shoot him.

          Resource gun until breakages 360000 shots. US police conducted a test before being adopted. Infa in the internet. even when shooting under water, the gun barrel not only does not burst, but does not swell.

            Both in Kalash and in PM, when fired under water, the barrel does not tear and does not inflate. There will be no automatic shooting, there is not enough energy.
            But the question is how many shots Glock can withstand at the same time?
            He can and can withstand the barrel how many thousands of shots there, and the frame? The network is full of Glock pictures with a bursting frame. And about checking by continuous shooting. A couple of hundred shots and a wedge. No one canceled the laws of thermodynamics. Heats up, overheats and dosvidos.
            And the question is who and how checked this shot? 360 thousand shots !!!!! Check with a machine gun, automatic, well, maybe the automatic rifle is not a big problem, but how to check the declared shot at the gun. I don’t think that even the most stubborn shooters in their entire lives will do it during b / action too.
            In general, this shot in doubt.
            But if you find evidence I will be grateful.

                As a supplement. To check the declared shot, 360 thousand. It is necessary to do about 1000 (thousand shots) every day for a year from a pistol. For 3 years, 100 shots. Not sickly man worked every day almost a hundred shots from a pistol did. Did the citizen go nuts. And as with his finances, there aren’t any rumors of whether or not he went bankrupt.
                In no case am I making fun of you, but an elementary calculation casts doubt on such statements.

                  But don’t have to laugh, and consider the finances of others. In the US, they often sell cartridges from army warehouses, their price is slightly more than nothing. I think people did not go broke.

                    Do not sell cartridges from army warehouses in the USA. Although there is quite liberal legislation in relation to weapons, they do not do this with regard to ammunition so that there are no thefts from warehouses.

                      Oh well. But the Americans do not know. Do you know how much a Surplast box costs, which you say is not? It makes no sense to steal to get $ 100

                      Speaking of counting. Commercial 9x19s cost $ 200 for 1000 rounds, Surplast from $ 30 to $ 80 for 1000 rounds. But let's consider only the commercial version of fresh cartridges.
                      And so 1000 are 200 Baku
                      100000 are 20000 Baku
                      20000 divided by 3 years equals $ 6666
                      12 months in a year
                      6666 divide by 12 we get 555 dollars
                      Ie test month spent 555 dollars a month on cartridges. If I used Surplast, the price was at least 2 times less.

          In principle, this is all the same. All come from DP-27. The difference in nutrition and ammunition used. RP-46 is a DPM adapted for tape power. RPD - tape power and cartridge 7.62 * 39.
          The RPD is an excellent machine gun, but the equipment of the tapes is dreary and not any devices to speed up the process.

      The American DS Arms has a converted version of the RPD (RPD-Carbine). Plastic telescopic butt, pistol grip, forend. A new barrel with a flame arrester, the tape is laid in a synthetic box. The front handle with retractable bipod ..... There is an option for alteration under the cartridge 6,8 * 43, but the tape is used from the RPD one-piece. Very successful alteration in my opinion. They sell them on the civilian market as a carbine, but there are also with automatic fire. They offer some countries such modernization of their machine guns ..

        Well, in the civilian market, this is in the civilian market. And the Soviet Army abandoned it, although of course it was the first-born at 7,62X39 (41), but it came out lumpy. Although, due to the lack of an alternative, it was put into production with the hope of bringing it to mind, but and did not grow together.

      Super expertise - to mock a machine gun of the 1944 model. An experimental option, to be honest. The first chambered for 7,62x39 arr. 1943, the first accepted for military tests. They, by the way, if my memory serves me, only about 1000 pieces were released just for testing.
      This machine gun did not fight. Why is this article in general?
      And about SG-43 is also weak to write? Or about the classics - Maxim's machine gun? Also a tape version of the supply of cartridges, by the way.
      Moreover, like a cherry on a cake - an article without a signature. Shame on these verses?

            So when he had time to fully that ... in 1944, the experimental party and that most likely were completely secret. And so he fought, and even now it seems to be the case.
            Everything there was raw with the cartridge - they changed the shape of the bullet, had to cut the muzzle, brought the gunpowder ... so that mass production was not launched for a long time, and what kind of war was without ammunition,

              All is correct. Maybe I’ll mess things up, but the tests were carried out in two districts - in Moscow and Tashkent. At the front of this machine gun was not. Any barrel, of course, shoots. But you must admit that he did not recognize such fights as during the Great Patriotic War. Well, they just didn’t get to the title of “army machine gun”. Did not make it. So this kind of expertise is simply incomprehensible.

                None of the weapons adopted after the Great Patriotic War recognized such fights (and would not want to).
                They tried to finish it, but they could not cope with the problem of soot. And the PKK “went ahead”, although it seems to have borrowed the butt.
