Default Sons of Guns dual M-16 boar mount WTF?

Ok two water cooled M-16's using beta mags.

First why would you be messing with a dual M-16 set up as a spec ops unit? Why not mount two SAW's or M240s on that mount? Belt feed, made to fire a lot of rounds in a short amount of time. Either are much more realiable for high rates of fire for long amounts of time. But, we are going to go old school and use water cooling on this set up even in the 40's things were going aircooled.

Oh and I have never seen a guy in the military even the Navy have a uniform as ATE THE HELL UP as that so called LT on the show. Wrinkled, no name tags, buttons unbuttoned, ect.......

Anyways why not use one right handed upper and one left handed upper? That way all the brass is flying out away from the operator and his sight line?

Where are all these OPERATORS coming from on this show?

That Navy Lt who was the armorer had no markings on his uniform. If this is really an active duty demonstration why are none of them in uniform?

I am also confused why they would use an M-16. It didn't seem to be something that was easily removable. The copper fittings for the water cooling would get caught on all kinds of things if you tried to carry that in the field. Why not choose a weapons system designed to be used for sustained fire?

It's all staged. I only watch it for entertainment value.

I don't think it is all staged but I do have to wonder why they do some of the things they do. Like the M-16 turret mount? Who the hell is stickin his head out of the truck while taking fire to change the beta mag when it is out of ammo. Same thing goes for the dual boat mount?

The M-16 is not made to fire like a SAW or 240, for m60.

if you REALLY want to adapt a m16 to a squad sustained fire role that wasnt designed to be such there are conversions to make an AR or M16 belt fed. a bea mag wouldnt be first choice in that function. big clumsy to reload.

real military would have easy access to M-60's SAW etc. dual or quad mount if your that silly. hell a mk19 woulda been a way more effective choice since it was designed explicitly from the get go as a river boat support weapon in vietnam.

seriously tho how can peeps that work around selectfire and semi auto weapons all the time never have seen a gas tube go red?? ive got my colt sp1 semi-auto to do that just screwing around. its when it goes white you gotta worry....

i was watching that episode and it did strike me as all kinds of pointless. i switched it over to south park re-runs on comedy central.

Seems kinda pointless to me also. Its mostly staged. The customers/orders are probably real, but they stage the encounters to make better TV.

When they initially fired the M-16 with the 3 - 100 round mags and tested the heat index. Cook a steak and then some on it! Then later they used a coil copper tubes to cool it and the drop in temperature.

Interesting; but, my question like the everyone else is why?

Maybe, try something new with the M-16. There was no protection from enemy fire, your rear is completely exposed in a 360 degree.

Also, looking at the LT uniform, could they have been militia? Just a thought!

Why would you make a $300, single shot .410 zip-gun to kill alligators when Taurus already makes the Judge, a five shot revolver??? And I've seen other Saiga shotgun conversions for 3-gun which I like better.

They make it out like there is nothing like it out there. 2 seconds and I foudn Buds bang sticks on the internet.

I think it is cool that they are making it but don't make it out like your the first and only one doing this.
