The fellows over at InRange TV have been posting a series of very popular mud tests on various service weapons. Most recently a mud test of the fragile AR15 that “everyone” knows can not take even a microscopic speck of dust and has to be cleaned every 3 rounds. I like to think out regular readers already know how this video is going to turn out since it is one of my pet subjects.
I am sure this will still come as a shock to some people who see it. The truth is the AR15 and its DI system can take a lot more filth and abuse that some of the guns out there with reputations for being unstoppable. Years of military personnel repeating handed down myth and misinformation over decades combined with the civilian gun communities habit of believing everything a vet says as if it was gospel that can never be question and gun media with their own slick ads and and agenda has made this particular BS myth last longer than it should have.
Below is the dirty duo’s mud test of the AK47 . The mythological unstoppable killing machine that is infallible.
And here is a much enlightening ( for some) video with mud testing some of the other popular service rifles.
