    Default The G36 900 rounds with Beta C drums!!!

    Yes, you're reading the title correctly! I have posted a vintage test video of the G36 firing 900 rounds in under 3 minutes and it can be found here: https://www.hkpro.com/forum/chef-s-co...-videos-5.html This is a unicorn rare video!

    This deserves a permanent spot on HKpro among the other videos Iíve been able post.

    All I will comment on is that I donít see a catastrophic failure that would result in the rifle from firing again, which is unlike many other examples of M16 and M4 Iíve seen with a similar test being conducted.

    Did he not run a 30rd magazine through it, after the 900rd test? Or was that a different rifle, missing the handguard?

    it was the same rifle, you can tell because the handguard was really abused...

    I believe what Robert Hirt (the shooter) says in German indicates that it is the same rifle, but you can visibly see that the hand guard is in bad shape.

    This is probably the worst swabian accent I have ever heard, I'll try anyway:

    0:00 - 0:05 Hirt: "G36 No. 205 fire to destruction."
    0:09 - 0:09 Backround: "Slow down Robert, everybody wants to attend."
    0:10 - 0:25 Discussion on how to hold the rifle.
    0:32 "Open fire, or?!"
    0:33 "Attention!" (brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr commences)
    0:40 - 0:50 Backround: "The ejection is flawless" (Note the guy in the backround, totally exited about the trajectory of the empty shells)
    1:29 "The fourth one? Yes"
    1:45 "Be careful, the gas block is getting red."
    2:00 "600, yes? Yes!"
    2:13 "Now its getting hot. 700? Yes!"
    2:33 "We've done it, now it burns."
    2:35 "I owe you a beer (?)"
    2:37 Hirt: "The bolt hold open doesn't work anymore."
    2:41 Hirt: "Let's shoot some more?" (Literally: Shall we throw out some more?)
    2:44 "Better take care!"
    2:55 "Throw it away, stop it!"
    2:59 Hirt: "Do you have one more?"
    3:03 -3:08 "How many? 800! But be careful!"
    3:08 Hirt: "One more!"
    3:17 "Throw it away, now! Throw it away, NOW!"
    3:24 "Well done!"
    3:27 "Lick my ass"
    3:29 Hirt: "205 after 900 rounds sustained fire one magazine 30 rounds. Bolt hold open works, wicked! It works! G36 205 after 900 rounds one magazine 30 rounds runs without complaints."
    3:53 Hirt: "GEIL!"

    There is a lot more going on there, I can't make it all out. The atmosphere is very relaxed and casual. They all address each other informally.

    Noteworthy: Hirt uses an antiquated term for the bolt hold open. He uses Kammerfang instead of the more modern Verschlussfang.

    I'm surprised that I'm not getting more traction on this video...

    Holy G36 meltdown!!! Thatís impressive to see a G36 go through 900 rounds so quickly. I would have thought the gas system would have given out after that last drum mag. Thanks for sharing!
