Lmao

I bet there are maybe 2-3 people on here that are capable of affording that type of shooting and actually caring to do it
That being said I'm not worried about a few mag dumps hurting any of mine

OK, so he blew through a few hundred dollars of ammo, ruined a suppressor and a barrel. What's the point?

Once you exceed the temperature where a metal becomes malleable, it doesn't really matter whose name is on the outside of the can. It is going to fail. All that video was about was getting hits on the internet and making a name. It was a test designed to make something fail, and it did.

Complete trash... I can't believe the metal turned to liquid after it got glowing red hot. lol. Watched one get run over at the range a month ago, he pulled it out of the much, checked it and went to shooting. I think they are pretty tuff.

Well...the gun impresses.

I think they knew exactly what would happen...would love to see the bore after it cooled down. I bet those latter rounds were cooking off before the primer was hit.

Yeah and why would your gun need to be suppressed after a few rounds??? These people are worse than CNN, or it could just be me and suppressors were designed for machine gun nests, just stupid as rocks what have people stooped to. I guess anything to trash someone else's product. Side note, I'm not a proponent of silencerco, overpriced for the noise

1. It was a joke by the OP

2. The point of a can is to make the weapon hearing safe.

3. SiCo, while I am not a fan of their hipster marketing these days, makes a good suppressor that is priced the same as their competition.

4.I have had my Specwar glowing red like that on my 10.5" 5.56 on an m16 lower. Not to that point obviously.... but it has handled a TON of rounds since and quite well.

this video is not to undermine Silencerco... it is simply a few guys wanting to make a cool video or "FSU" (f s**t up) type of video up and have fun knowing they are going to ruin the suppressor and the gun barrel... they knew that going in... its not a, "this suppressor is a piece of junk" watch us fire almost 1,000 rounds full auto and see that this can is a piece junk type of video... most cans are fully auto rated meaning a few 20+ mags full auto won't hurt anything and they're right... needless to say... I'm happy so see this video and more like this need to be done because they are AWESOME! just not with my equipment!!! hahaha just enjoy it folks because its great footage!

It means magazine fed full auto. Most people aren't running around sporting a full auto belt fed.

And even the ones that are, know better than to play stupid games.

Seriously - The video was cool, the suppressor failed. The OP was making a joke. Sure his joke went over badly, but lighten up.
