PSA AR-15 Torture Test

Interesting to see how a very 'basic' AR held up to some reasonably bad abuse. I know there are lots of problems with 'torture tests' but I would have assumed it would have failed earlier on.

On the other hand, the IraqVeteran8888 guy will put full-auto lowers on different brands of AR, and feed them loaded magazines as fast as he can to see what part breaks or burns up first, and MOST of the AR's he tests are done-in around 1,000 rounds. But of course with a semiauto lower and not having a stack of
loaded magazines, we'd never heat them up like that.

Pretty amazing huh? I really liked that long handguard. And the optic was just as durable. Pretty amazing.

I think there are some aspects of firearms technology that actually ARE advancing, and even though the Glocks and AR's are often referred to as 'soul-less', so are sledgehammers, vice-grips, and duct-tape, and all three are very practical things.

As for the optics being 'fragile, and needing back-up irons'....sort of....but I can put a terabyte of data on a flash drive the size of a 44 Mag cartridge and dunk it in water and all the data is still good, whereas 40 years ago a few hundred kilobytes of data would be stored on fragile media that was temperature and humidity sensitive. I have probably had more 'iron sights' fail me afield than I have red-dot ones....!
