standard

AaargoJay takes a look:

AaargoJay-YouTube-Magazine-CapacitySummary: If we want infinity round magazines, or 1 round magazines we should have the choice.

Jay is wearing the Standard Capacity 30 Rounds T-Shirt from ENDO.  It’s got that slick “football numbers” back print on it he shows at the end of the video, which people really seem to be liking.

Thoughts? Are you willing to make any concessions on magazine capacity?

Yea you read the title correctly… this isn’t a joke either:

Only the government could come up with an official 26 page military document on such a topic.

Talk about sucking the enjoyment out of cooking.

I propose a new entry under Quality Assurance:

4.6 – The brownie and cookies shall make operators operate in operations exceeding their baseline operating ability.  The contractor shall ensure product compliance prior to submitting the product to the USDA for any inspection.

An armored, 4-door, 4-wheel drive, 6.0 turbo diesel truck capble of running on JP-8 and other military fuels. This Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT) can be internally transported in a CH / MH 47 helicopter. Built from the ground-up with the intent of being armored and operating in unforgiving terrain, the NSTT can operate in any denied environment.

Looks like a capable truck, that’s for sure. The suspension looks to be a bit soft, especially on the track at the 1 minute mark.  I suppose they likely go with a standard style suspension and try to make it decent on most terrain, rather than a complex adjustable one that would be a pain to repair.

The big WTF point in the video is at 1:09 when two guys are in the truck taking live fire from an AK-47. Like Solomon mentioned in his post, why the hell would you do that?  I get the fact that you are confident in your product, but really?? Putting a camera inside would have sufficed.  I’m surprised those guys agreed to something so stupid.

Full auto shenanigans:

Want to see the hanguards on a M4 melt and start on fire?

Want to see the barrel on a M4 droop and then explode?

Those guys are having way too much fun at work

The M-4 carbine, one of the primary rifles used by the United States military, appears destined for a change. After concerns surfaced about rifles overheating in a sustained firefight in 2008 in Afghanistan, the manufacturer and the United States Army are close to agreeing on a modification to the weapon’s barrel that makes the carbine more resistant to the stresses of extended firing.

For bulk purchasers, a new M-4 costs about $800 per rifle

I actually thought the cost would have been much lower.  A bulk price of $800 seems very steep.  I suppose these are not comparable to your average low end AR-15 though.
