“GUN BULLIES”: Frozen in ice, only steel case ammo used, and left uncleaned and unlubed!
We at Legally Armed America recently introduced our brand new “Gun Bullies” series and announced that we’d be using a Windham Weaponry MPC AR-15 rifle as our first victim. As previously stated, the purpose of these exercises is not to “break” the firearm we’re working with, but rather to show how much common abuse today’s firearms are subjected to and can still function properly. Let’s face it, with the incredible number of new gun owners in the past five years, many of them are simply not caring for their weapons the way they’re supposed to. We’re hoping to mimic that, but with a positive outcome.
In this installment of “Gun Bullies”, we’d originally shot 125 rounds of Wolf steel case ammo to begin “dirty-ing” the weapon up. Remember, we have not cleaned or lubricated this weapon since it was introduced to us.
We had a list of “abuses” we planned to put this weapon through, but that list got shaken up a bit when we had some unseasonably cold temperatures hit our area. That area – Southern Louisiana – was expecting temperatures in the 20’s and that is COLD for down here! We know, that’s not cold compared to other areas as friends from Minnesota to Northern New York emailed us telling us we were a bunch of pansies for closing down with those temps!
Regardless, we decided to freeze the weapon in a block of ice with the intent of thawing it and immediately firing it, having the weapon go from below freezing temps to extremely hot temps in a very short period of time. We then broke the AR out of the ice at the range and immediately fired it with 120 more rounds of Wolf steel case ammo.
As you’ll see in the video, the weapon functioned just the way it was supposed to! Now with 245 rounds of steel case ammo through it, no cleaning it, not lubricating it, and freezing it solid, it was now time to get into the really dirty abuse! Next up, we’re going to toss this thing into a pond and let it sit at the bottom of it for a week!
