Suppressor Meltdown! 700 round burst through an M249 SAW!

The suppressor used in this video was a Silencerco SWR branded can. We fired 700 rounds in one continuous burst through a full-auto M249 saw. The can ended up breaking around the 350-400 round mark. The gun itself ran wonderful and had no problems. The only problem we had afterwards was someone was going to have to clean it. We wanted to see how far we could push a full-auto rated suppressor.

One would think he could possibly hit what he was aiming at before it melted. Maybe not.
