The videos in this series are a tad on the long side. I wanted to be sure I included every failure, every defect, EVERY ROUND. The objective was to see how this rifle performed for 5000 rounds. at the time of this video's original release, it was known that Riley was using surplus trunnions. I do make mention of this throughout the series.
The objective was not to defame or sensationalize, but to inform and with a bit of luck, improve the American made AK.
I was inspired to do the test this way by the Browning "potato digger" test.
