Takes a lickin and keeps on tickin. That's what's so cool about an AK. Try doing that with an AR and see what happens. :mrgreen: Is it just me or did the handguard ignite pretty quick? Maybe the guy put some flammable substance on it for theatrical purposes.
And what exactly was he trying to prove? That the AK can go until the hand guards caught on fire? Big whoop. All he probably ended up with is a warped barrel. I have done similar with a M16 many years ago when working in the armory in the service, went like hell until the hand guards started to melt.
Did anyone else catch the title?
This dude fires an AK47 until the barrel gets so hot that the metal actually ignites
