Suppressor Meltdown! Gun Guy Shoots 700 Rounds Through A M249 Squad Automatic Weapon

Even if this is ridiculous overload, watching a silencer catch on fire and melt off a barrel is pretty awesome!

At 46 seconds he stopped firing, so this is not a 700 round burst.  It is 700 rounds in 2 bursts...
Still pretty cool...

That looks entirely too loud.. I dunno if i would have kept shooting when the suppressor started to break off.

Reminds me of an exercise we were doing once using blanks that will still heat the barrel up like in the video.  When they called for cease fire, a WM (woman marine) stood up and grabbed the rifle by the barrel.  ><

melcervini Not unusual for soldiers of any sex.

But, I doubt she ever did that a second time.

Would have been interesting to see a decibel meter showing how effectiveness started to drop off as the silencer started to fail.
