What happens when you fire 1,500-plus solid tracers through an M60 machine gun? In this case, the barrel begins to glow red-hot and a fire starts under the shroud! (Safety disclaimer: Don’t try this at your local rifle range.)
According to the YouTube video description, the barrel on this M60 was nearing the end of its serviceable life, so the owner decided to finish it off in a “blaze of glory.” Be sure to read the final credits for an update on the M60’s barrel condition.
FYI: The video was filmed and edited by James DeGroat of DeGroat Tactical Armaments; click here to learn more about DTA. You’ll find other interesting videos on the DTA website as well.
Until next time ...
