    G2 Research R.I.P. Shotgun Slugs - FIRST! Tests
    TAOFLEDERMAUS



    Published on Jul 31, 2017
    Using non-traditional ballistic mediums, we test out the performance of the new G2 Research R.I.P. Shotgun Slugs. I don't think we have tested a slug with SUCH a specific application before, short of the bean bag rounds. We received only 5 of these slugs so we showed every single shot. We didn't have any spares to take practice shots or correct for cameraman malfunctions. The wet magazines were MOSTLY uniform in thickness, but we did have some variations in overall thickness. We measured the depth of the various projectiles the closest we could get. For those wishing we shot at $160 blocks of clear gel, we'll leave that to other channels so they will be able to add something to the discussion.

    Check out Gy6's awesome test of the OATH Tango slugs here:

    Kevin from The Backyard Scientist channel surprised me by sending thousands of lighter flints. Yep, he's really a nice guy in real life too!
    We made wax slugs with these putting around 100 flints per shell.

    If you haven't watched Kevin's videos, prepare for a treat!

    The Ultimate Backpack or Survival Rifle?
    Military Arms Channel



    Published on Aug 8, 2017
    I love the Ruger 10/22. So what do you get when you join it with a GEMTECH MIST-22 silecer from SilencerShop, a MAGPUL X-22 Backpacker stock and a Primary Arms Advanced Micro Dot sight? You get what is quite possibly the ultimate backpack rifle out there. It's light, accurate, easy to use and extremely quiet.

    Faxon Q&A #4: Chamber types, heat dissipation, headspace and more!
    InRangeTV



    Published on Aug 12, 2017
    http://faxonfirearms.com/

    Part 4 of ongoing our barrel discussions with Faxon. In this one we discuss chamber types, heat dissipation, headspace and quite a bit more as well.

    00:41
    What’s the difference with chamber cuts? 223, 556 NATO, match, Wylde, etc.
    What are all these things and are they relevant and why?

    06:37
    Commentary: For most real world and practical applications, match grade and tight chambers aren’t worth the trouble.

    08:51
    Discussion about what tight versus loose chamber cuts actually even mean in terms of dimensions.
    Radial and dimension differences between .223 and 5.56 NATO.

    10:44
    What does it take to get to “subMOA”?

    12:53
    The gun design itself is important when attempting to get to “subMOA”. Some designs lend themselves towards accuracy more than others.

    18:38
    What is the difference between a true match and a “subMOA” barrel?

    21:16
    The definition of what a “match” is has changed over time and therefore the requirements for what you need to shoot a match have changed as well.

    25:00
    What is the difference between lapping and honing?

    30:25
    What is headspace and how is it measured?

    40:04
    Some guns have adjustable headspace.
    What can happen when headspace is outside of safe boundaries?

    42:41
    What can be done to mitigate headspace problems?

    45:00
    Thermal dissipation - weight versus function?
    Pencil barrels aren’t intended for sustained high ROF, but that wasn’t the goal.
    Barrels designed for sustained rates of fire are heavier & thicker - it’s all a compromise.

    49:14
    The BAR & the Chauchat had overheating issues because of barrel design.
    The M16 was not designed to be a SAW.

    51:00
    The full auto switch on an M16 can’t be used as a panic button which then can result in overheat and total failure. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have full auto, but it has a specific purpose.

    52:59
    Fitting extensions to receivers and what is the accuracy effect in doing so?

    55:28
    The AR15’s locking recesses are part of the barrel assembly, not the upper receiver. This is different than many other designs.

    More AR15 parts by V Seven : Project lightweight AR15 is getting even lighter!!!
    mixflip



    Published on Aug 14, 2017
    Many of you already know about my project light weight AR15 built of a Mag Tactical Systems magnesium lower receiver.

    Here is a link to the first video is you haven't seen it already.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PMfJ...

    Here is a link to the first V Seven Weapons titanium parts installed.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rawwR...

    In this video I received more titanium parts from V Seven Weapons Systems. I purchased a titanium right hand only selector lever and a titanium pistol grip screw.

    V Seven also sent me a titanium flash hider, titanium pivot pins, ultra light weight dust cover, ultra light weight dust cover rod and ultra light weight forward assist.

    With the previous light weight parts installed I got the rifle down to 5 pounds 4 ounces. With these new light weight parts I got the rifle down to 5 pounds 1.5 ounces!

    I am getting close to my goal of sub 5 pounds!!! Once I reach sub 5 pounds I will take the rifle to the range and film a range review.

    Special thanks to all the companies who support my channel and have donated parts to make this project possible.

    Please click their links to learn more about them and what they have to offer.
