    Great video, I like that you actually showed the entire video without editing out the 'malfunctions' just to make the Colt look better. Although you said that you've owned Colts all your life, I think you did a good job of being non-biased, and represented a good test of the quality of the rifle.

    Cool video, like always.

    I don't see a civilian situation where your AR would be subjected to that kind of abuse. Even in a SHTF situation if you dropped it in the dirt you could wipe the gun off and you would not load the mags with ****ing dirt in them!

    :dunno:

    Nice. Makes me want my next AR to be a Colt. I wonder how my Bushmaster would do?

    It's always good to have backup........:supergrin:
    My AR's have already been subjected to at least 1200 rounds of all steel cased ammo & no cleaning just lube. All passed. And they aren't colts.....

    My ARs never gave me a problem.

    Notice the ejection on the last test. That dirt was impeding the gas system. The first few rounds were ejecting towards the rear & then it changed to forward as the string of fire continued.

    I'd also like to see that same test with more lube.

    Every FTF/FTE I've had has always been traced back to ammo! Popped primer, weak load etc. Mags all have updated followers zero problems, even with my old GI mags.:supergrin:

    Cool... but you're being way too kind to it.
    :whistling:


    Lol, just kidding. Nicely done man. Good to see more evidence of AR misconceptions being put to rest.

    Good lord...If he saw my Benelli when it came off the back of my ATV after my last duck hunt that guy would have a stroke. I had to use a garden hose to clean it. I've seen guys come out of the back of a Bradley Fighting Vehicle with more dust on their M16's than that bozo...

    Want to know what breaks an M4? Running over it with an M88 recovery vehicle. Getting it caught in the closing ramp of an M113 APC. THAT crap flat out wrecks an M16. Seen it with my own eyes.
