    Glock 22 with Sig Sauer .40 S&W 180 gr V Crown Gel Test and Review
    TFB TV



    Published on Jul 10, 2017
    Last week, Sig V-Crown didn't do very well from a short barrel. This week we shoot it through a Glock Model 22 into ClearBallistics gel to assess velocity, penetration, expansion, and weight retention. Performance is still mixed, even with the longer barrel.

    Buy it at Ventura Munitions:

    Will A Book Stop A Bullet?
    Kentucky Ballistics



    Published on Jul 13, 2017
    Today on Kentucky Ballistics we see if a book will stop a bullet. I have several books that vary in thickness. First we see if a thick book will stop a 50 AE. Then we put a ballistics gel block behind the book and see how far it will penetrate after passing through the book. After that we do a few more tests with the Desert Eagle and several other handguns. Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy the video.

    Aussie inventor creates WICKED new shotgun slug!
    TAOFLEDERMAUS



    Published on Jul 18, 2017
    Denver Eady has been patiently waiting for us to get to test his new slug design. Denver used a hydraulic press to form these slugs, which gives a more uniform shape and weight, plus a cleaner finish than a slug formed in a mold. He also made custom 3D printed waddings for these. Needless to say we were very impressed with these slugs.

    Denver is getting a website set up so he can begin selling his loading components. If you would like to contact him:

    Special thanks to our friends at Quiet Riot Firearms in McDonough, GA for providing the M16 lower for this video. In this Meltdown, we take an entry level upper from Palmetto State Armory and shoot it full auto until failure. It's very interesting to see how various levels of quality in the components really make a difference in these tests. Stay Tuned, much more on the way.

    FOSTECH ECHO AR II: https://goo.gl/gld69O

    In this video we take a quick look at the new and improved Fostech ECHO AR-II trigger. The trigger lock mechanism has been redesigned in order to work with standard bolt carriers without modification as on the original, this allows the ECHO to be used in more platforms including pistol caliber carbines, piston rifles and belt fed uppers without issue. AR-22 rifles are still troublesome but can be made to work somewhat reliably with some tinkering. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

    American Gun Chic



    Published on Jul 25, 2017
    I visit Hank Strange and Safety Harbor Firearms to tackle their SHTF-50 and Keg-12. 50 Cals are some of my favorite guns to shoot! Shorty shotguns like the KEG-12 can be crazy too!!! Walter Keller hosts me at La Hacienda with Hank and Lola Strange to shoot some cool stuff. Shorty Shotgun reviews all right here. The greatest thing about Safety Harbor Firearms is that they make the 50 cal affordable.

    CZ P-10 C vs Beretta APX vs FN 509 - Shooting Comparison
    MarksmanTV



    Published on Jul 25, 2017
    In this video, I do a shooting comparison of the CZ P10-C, the Beretta APX and the FN 509 in 9mm. This is just for-fun to get some ideas on how the firearms perform. I am selling these three pistols. They were fired as "brand new" in the video, each only currently having about 20-30 rounds fired through them.

    FN 509: $459.00
    CZ P-10 C: 413.23
    Beretta APX: $440.00

    UPK-2 HEAVY Slugs - Very Impressive Results
    TAOFLEDERMAUS



    Published on Jul 25, 2017
    We test the HEAVY version of the UPK-2 Russian slugs. I have only seen Russian shooters use shotguns equipped with rifled chokes (that they call a paradox nozzle) to shoot these slugs. When we tested the lighter, 30 gram version of these slugs, we had remarkable results using both rifled chokes and through a cylinder bore. Spin stabilization didn't affect the accuracy. But when we shots these, we saw something different. Despite the loss of the stabilizing tail on about half of the shots, these slugs still persevered. It's like an airplane losing its tail and still flying.

    Next week we will be testing the new G2 Research R.I.P. slugs, so stay tuned!

    MOOSE ANTLER Shotguns Slugs - Primitive Technology
    TAOFLEDERMAUS



    Published on Jul 21, 2017
    We've shot some weird slugs before, and these may be the strangest. Mark from Flint Knapping Tools dot com fabricated these beauties out of moose antler and copper. The workmanship was outstanding. Will they be able to handle the nearly 10,000 g's of acceleration? Can we hit anything with them?

    How To Build An AR-15 Upper
    TFB TV



    Published on Jul 28, 2017
    MAKE SURE YOU TELL US WHAT KIND OF TORTURE TESTING YOU WANT TO SEE DONE TO THE COMPLETED RIFLE!

    Patrick finally gets around to building the upper receiver to go on the lower that we previously built. While Patrick builds his uppers a bit out of order, nothing is skipped and a large emphasis is placed on making sure that everything is assembled correctly.

    This video isn't intended to tell you to go buy several hundred dollars in tools, building an upper can be accomplished with far fewer and cheaper options. Since we have the professional quality tools, there is no reason to not use them.

    WWSD: Pencil barrel Stress & Heat Zero Testing
    InRangeTV



    Published on Jul 27, 2017
    The original M16 was designed with a relatively thin and light barrel, now generally referred to as a "pencil" profile. While this provided a very lightweight and balanced rifle to carry, it has a potentially very significant issue - zero shift under heat.

    As a result of that issue, and a few others like barrel flex while under slings strain, we've seen M16/AR15 barrel profiles grow increasingly thicker and heavier over time. This generally solve the problem however it moves away from the original design goals of the lightweight carbine that the AR was intended to be.

    Modern barrel manufacturing techniques have potentially made the pencil profile once again viable, and we are using Faxon pencil barrels in our WWSD builds.

    So the questions we're asking in this video are:

    Did the original Ar15/M16 barrel truly have this problem?
    Do modern manufacturing techniques alleviate it sufficiently well that the pencil barrel is again viable in 2017?

    Here's a link to Faxon's barrels:
