    Saw this on the Military Arms Channel and was amazed. Now the question: Could the Glock 19 match (survive) this?

    Don't know why not. I saw a Glock representative do pretty much the same to a Gen 1 G17 back in the 1980's when they first started importing them.

    That’s not a torture test. Go to about minute 47.

    Yes. And you will have a gun with 2x the capacity, a better trigger, and a more effective and available round.

    MAC does similar torture testing with many modern guns in his "gauntlet".

    They are fun to watch!

    Guys, do these tests on the G19 include loading the mag with sand? I was certain after he rolled the open mag in the sand, GAME OVER! But no, GAME ON!

    No, just dropping it 500 feet out of a helicopter and blowing it up.

    Are you kidding? A Glock 19 would drive itself to the range, throw itself in the mud, and then empty its magazine into a 1.0" group at 50 yards. Then it would kick Chuck Norris' ass for fun.

    Chuck Norris was holding on to it when it got blown up. Blew the trigger off the gun but Mr. Norris was fine.

    And FAR better controls.

    Heel magazine release? 1900 called and wanted its operator controls back.

    That gets done every day in the mideast. Worst environment in the world, tied for first place with saltwater and beach sand. And they still work. Been there, done that.

    Let's see a Makarov after a 500' drop. Then you can tell us that sand is worse.

    Sand is worse because sand being jammed into the gun is a credible scenario. Guns flying out of helicopters at 500' ain't a credible scenario.

    Besides, any piece of high impact plastic should be able to withstand a 500' fall. I'm afraid the helicopter routine doesn't impress me. The sand stuffed into the mag and having the gun work flawlessly does impress me. Hell, that's AK-esque!

    Whst’s fun about the AK-47 (maybe the Glock and Maksrov too) is considering whether it was designed/intended to be so robust, or did it just turn out that way fortuitously.

    I figure if any of my guns are exposed to those elements, I am in the wrong place.

    Oh yeah, I wasn't doubting you at all. I meant I'm glad you posted that fact. The notion of Glock Perfection and that they are some sort of unstoppable and indestructible item is silly to me. They make a good utilitarian gun, but indestructible they are not. No gun is, but some may do better than others, but luck has a lot to do with it.

    General Comment:
    Torture tests are silly to me. One guy with an expendable income abusing a gun and then acting like it's a POS because it doesn't work or it breaks, or acting like it was hand crafted by god if it doesn't break and does function is pure kaka.

    To me a torture test is shooting the living hell out of a gun and seeing if it will function, not beating it up and then trying to draw conclusions after a single example is tested and abused.

    I stopped watching MAC a few years ago.

    Agreed.. The late Todd Greens tests were far more informative.
