Mud Test AAR: Cleaning the AK
InRangeTV


Published on Sep 9, 2017
Even if the AK isn't the overall "winner" in regards to these mud tests, she's definitely hands down the supreme victor in regards to cleaning afterwards.

Everthing is give and take with weapons design and the AK is defintiely designed to be resiliant in the field with minimal maintenance. This post mud test cleaning video demonstrates how successful the AK design is in that regard.

3D printed Shotgun Shells - ALMOST too Dangerous
TAOFLEDERMAUS


Published on Sep 9, 2017


Michael, who has made us some 3d printed slugs before wanted to try his hand at making some shells. He made three types, a 50 cal version, a 20 ga. version and a 12 ga. version. The pressure inside a shotgun barrel can easily reach over 10,000 psi. so how will these hold up?

Thank you Tony for the shotgun! It has been working out very well and held up well for this test!

Shooting Taylor’s & Co. Tuned “Smoke Wagon” Single Action Revolver - Gunblast.com
Gunblastdotcom


Published on Sep 11, 2017
FOR MORE INFO: http://www.gunblast.com/Taylor-SmokeW...

Jeff Quinn ( http://www.gunblast.com ) tests the Taylor’s & Co. Tuned “Smoke Wagon” Single Action Revolver.

The Tuned Smoke Wagon has a hand-tuned action and springs, done in-house by the Taylor’s gunsmiths in Winchester, Virginia. The result is a very smooth, light action, but reliability with the test gun was one-hundred percent. Every cartridge fired positively and ejected smoothly. The beautiful case-colors of the frame contrast nicely with the blued-steel parts, and the checkered walnut stocks are classically beautiful, and feel perfect in my hand. The Smoke Wagon is a well-crafted replica of the famous 1873 Colt, at a fraction of the price.

In this video, Ray from Moss Pawn & Guns goes over the process of pillar bedding a rifle in order to achieve a solid foundation for consistent accuracy. The process shown on the CZ 455 in this video can be used for many other bedding projects on heavier recoiling rifles than a rimfire using the same or very similar process. If you are interested in learning more consider a degree in gunsmithing from Sonoran Desert Institute, check out the link above for more info. Stay tuned, much more on the way.

How Much Ice Does it Take to Stop a .50 cal?
The VSO Gun Channel


Published on Sep 22, 2017
Winter is Coming
We have done a lot of concepts to promote our 50 cal give away (Armalite AR-50A1 with Nikon Black X 1000 Midwest Industries Extreme Duty mount. Today we are going to give our best effort in trying to stop one of these massive projectiles and we aren't skimping either, shooting the same APIT ammo we have been from Freedom Munitions. I have spent the last month freezing water into blocks of ice and hopefully we will get a stop. How Much ICe does it take to stop a .50 cal?

Pocket Pistol Accuracy Test
Kentucky Ballistics


Published on Sep 23, 2017
Today on Kentucky Ballistics we test the accuracy of a pocket pistol. I can’t help but wonder how far I could make a shot with a pocket pistol. How far do you think we will be able to make a shot with a Ruger LCP II chambered in 380 ACP? We try shooting at 10 yards, 25 yards, 50 yards, 100 yards and 200 yards! Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy the video!

Ammunition used in today’s video.

Magtech 380 ACP 95 Grain Full Metal Jackets
Muzzle Velocity – 951 fps
Muzzle Energy – 190 ft. lbs.

PPD Fin-Stabilized Sabot Shotgun Slug - Wow!
TAOFLEDERMAUS


Published on Sep 26, 2017
Today we demonstrate some advanced Russian sabot slugs. This is basically a large caliber bullet (13.5 mm) that obtains stability by small fins like a mortar round. We received 7 of these to test out. 6 were loaded with 30 grains of Longshot, and the 7th with 40 grains. Normally, it takes hundreds or even thousands of test shots to determine the correct powder AND the correct quantity to find the "sweet spot" where the slugs perform their best.

Thank you IGOR for the Russian introduction! Do you know what he said? Be FIRST let us know!

WWSD: Aero Upper
InRangeTV


Published on Sep 27, 2017
https://aeroprecisionusa.com/ar15-ass...

The WWSD project initially used two different uppers, one from VLTOR and the other being AERO. We looked for uppers that specifically included the brass defector but omitted the forward assist.

After using both rifles (and different uppers) extensively, we have standardized on the Aero upper as it does not interfere with our ambidextrous controls and is slightly lighter than the VLTOR equivalent.

The VLTOR upper is an excellent component, but it just did not fit perfectly into our WWSD project's goals.

This video discusses all of this and more.

Very Space Age Custom-Machined Shotgun Slugs
TAOFLEDERMAUS


Published on Sep 29, 2017
I had to re-upload this video because my singing was deemed "Too sexy". That's how we roll in the shire.
Devon machined some really shiny and ultra-modern looking slugs for us to shoot. There were four different types each with a different design and weight. Despite that, I loaded them with the same powder load of 27 grains of Longshot.

Camouflaging your rifle
U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit


Published on Oct 27, 2011
A rifle doesn't necessarily blend into its environment, it leaves a recognizable silhouette. The hunter and the war fighter alike can benefit from camouflaging your weapon to match the environment. SGT Kennedy from the USAMU Custom Firearm Shop shows you how.

.50 Beowulf Bullets Shot from a 12 ga. Shotgun
TAOFLEDERMAUS


Published on Oct 8, 2017
Tim the Ballistic Machinist sent us some Lehigh Defense bullets, sabots and waddings to load up and test. Bullet-type sabots need spin stabilization - more than a rifle choke offers, so we got Danny and his rifled shotgun out to shoot these. All the components we used are available "over the counter". These tests were not commisioned by Lehigh Defense.
