Piston AR-15 Meltdown Test

This video from Iraqveteran8888 shows a torture test of a Patriot Ordnance Factory P416 gas piston AR-15. They put it through the ringer and fired approximately 2,500 rounds through it and it still did not fail.

The standard AR-15 uses a Direct Impingement System while the standard AK-47 uses a Gas Piston system. This video from Iraqveteran8888 shows a torture test of a Patriot Ordnance Factory P416 gas piston AR-15. They put it through the ringer and fired approximately 2,500 rounds through it and it still did not fail. It had a series of malfunctions and definitely needs some serious cleaning and maintenance, but it didn’t fail. That is quite an impressive rifle.

While the majority of the video is simply sustained automatic fire and can be skipped, it’s definitely worth skipping ahead to the end to see the condition is in, go ahead and skip to about 25 minutes and 20 seconds.
