How Many Rounds Does It Take to Meltdown an AK-47?
Ever wonder how long you could shoot a fully automatic AK-47 until it turns into a big ball of fire or melts into a big metal glob? The old question of how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop has been replaced by How many rounds does it take to meltdown an AK-47 (fully automatic, of course)?
IV8888 from Georgia takes on this little experiment. He’s fully loaded with several 75 round drums and 30 round Magpul PMAGS filled with 124-grain 7.62x39mm.
To demonstrate how the heat builds up in the weapon, he even uses Infrared technology.
Remember, the gun he is using was built for semi-automatic, but has been converted to fully automatic for the video.
IV8888 is using a Century Arms Romanian WASR-10 AK. Enjoy!
