700-Round Burst Out of a M249 SAW VS a Suppressor {VIDEO}

Suppressors are hot items these days, both in the military and the civilian world. But they can also get very hot during extended firing periods, and can even self-destruct before the barrels they are attached to do the same.

The guys over at West Coast Armory put a little video together to show what a machine gun and a lot of ammo, 700 rounds of 5.56X45 to be exact, can do to one of these sounds suppressing weapon accouterments. The results are impressive, and although the suppressor basically disintegrated, failing around 350 rounds, it gave a good fight before doing so.
