Slightly oldie but still a goodie. Unrealistic test but it'll show the limits of the M4 in its old barrel and the newer heavy barrel in the M4A1. Surprisingly no malfunctions until the 500th round where the barrel is already melting (and about to blow) and about 400th round the 2nd time around.

2nd video was a lot more impressive and you can see how the gas tube gives before the barrel does.

Cool video. I hadn't seen that before.

I wonder what would be cooler than an M4A1...









...An M4A1 on FIRE! :43:

I was cracking up at about the 3 minute mark on the second video. Truely awesome.

Does that rifle not have a bolt catch? Why is he pulling the charging handle every mag change?

The bolt release is on the inside, where it's being mounted so he doesn't have access to it. You can see that the bolt is locked to the rear when empty.
