AK47 vs AR15 | mud reliability test

AK47 vs AR15 | mud reliability test

After Žiga saw the first InRangeTV mud test of an AK47 he was shocked. The result was opposite of what he expected and it just didn’t make sense to him and his experience with both platforms.
Today we finally got the courage to do our own AK47 vs AR15 mud test.
So what we wanted to test here is how reliable are both of these rifles when dirt comes into the working of the gun.
It seems that our mud reliability test has given us a result that is closer to real life experience. Not that mud is a common reason for malfunctions but can be substituted by carbon fouling and lack of lubrication in an uncleaned or suppressed gun.
The AK doesn’t really mind but some ARs quickly develop hiccups – from bolt not going into battery to short stroking and double feeds.

So does our AK47 vs AR15 mud reliability test contradict the tests done by InRangeTV?
I would say not at all. InRangeTV tests have shown that AR is a more enclosed and tight fitting platform than an AK and that it does an amazing job of keeping dirt and debris out of the workings of the rifle. And our test showed that if some mud manages to infiltrate in the operating system of the rifle, the AK platform is more reliable and can keep on firing with bigger amounts of crud.

    Aki and 12 gauge are the apocalypse firearms

  2. HerzausStahl on May 26, 2023 at 3:55 am

    Do that with a G3

    I just love how crunchy is sound at 16:23 : https://youtu.be/Hxvrhb7ayW8?t=983

  4. Arn Cedergren on May 26, 2023 at 4:03 am

    I always wondered how does the buton on the side of the ar help? Inside of the gun you can see how it is judt a buton and a spring. So when it jams how died ut help presing it. I saw you do it multible times during the first fails in the video

  5. Tshepo Motau on May 26, 2023 at 4:03 am

    The bottom line? The guns should not be exposed to dirt, mud or any debris.

  6. rick grimes on May 26, 2023 at 4:04 am

    Ah zpapz the ak peak god I love yugos

  7. Frag 13 on May 26, 2023 at 4:04 am

    It’s not a Russian AK!

  8. العقاب الذهبي on May 26, 2023 at 4:05 am

    Ak47 is the best.

  9. Андрей Фёдоров on May 26, 2023 at 4:06 am

    2 достойных образца, но каждый в своëм лучше))

  10. Tiggr Playz on May 26, 2023 at 4:07 am

    Moral of the story, don’t get your gun dirty and clean it regularly.

  11. Mark Turner on May 26, 2023 at 4:07 am

    The AK is better. Better caliber, more reliable.

  12. Future Trancer on May 26, 2023 at 4:07 am

    Its not AK47,Its Serbian Rifle,Zastava M70

  13. Simon Bezek on May 26, 2023 at 4:10 am

    Aa verjetno si slovenc, sm rabu par minut 😀

  14. James T Clement Film on May 26, 2023 at 4:11 am

    Comparing an AK-47 to an AR-15 is like comparing an airsoft rifle to a bazooka they’re not the same weapons. He’ll AR-15 M4 aren’t the same weapons

  15. African Eagle...🦅 on May 26, 2023 at 4:11 am

    We all know that the ak47 is a much better & more powerful rifle

  16. Rafik Totayo on May 26, 2023 at 4:12 am

    This ak is not made in russia made in egybt😊😊😊

  17. Kim Haidar on May 26, 2023 at 4:13 am

    Ak47 👍

  18. julian van zyl on May 26, 2023 at 4:15 am

    Original Ak – 47 will not have a malfunction with so little mud… you can submerge the whole thing in mud take it out and fire it straight away emptying the magazine with no problem.

  19. Jaybrata Bhattacharyya on May 26, 2023 at 4:18 am

    You have actually reproduced the scenario that happened in Vietnam. AK vs AR in muddy fields and AK took it all.

  20. Steven Tracy on May 26, 2023 at 4:19 am

    If you drop in magazine into the dirt or mud you can just put a clean magazine into the gun if you drop the gun into the sand or the mud that’s a different thing. Far more likely that you would get the gun dirty and not the magazine because magazines are carried in covered belts Etc the fact is that you say that it’s a closed system on the AR which means that it is a superior design to the AK-47. You just can’t do that you can’t allow yourself to say that the AR-15 is a superior design and it is the AR platform is a superior design no matter what caliber it is. During one of the videos they use a sandblaster when they can’t make the AR- rifle fail they blow the sand directly into the bolt as its functioning and it continues to function whereas the AK-47 failed on the first round. The AK-47 is a flawed design, of course it is, it came out of Russia a communist state known as the Soviet Union. The guys doing these Pro AK-47 test probably think socialism is better than capitalism Etc

    Yo where are you from I gotta move there😂

  22. Jimmy Gouz on May 26, 2023 at 4:22 am

    Please show us JANGNOU MADE PUMPI😂🙏😂….. Fervent appeal 🙏🙏

  23. Ocala pistolero on May 26, 2023 at 4:23 am

    Carbine length gas system. 20 and 18 inch barrels mostly use rifle length gas systems. Mid length for 12-16.

  24. Thulani D Ngubane on May 26, 2023 at 4:25 am

    Give Me My AK ❤️ nothing else 😅

  25. Nigaja on May 26, 2023 at 4:26 am

    Kao da poredis pracku i tenk….

  26. shaho afridi on May 26, 2023 at 4:26 am

    Ak 47 much better than R15

  27. DeltaCharlie Romeo on May 26, 2023 at 4:29 am

    Very clear. It’s AK.

  28. Mister No on May 26, 2023 at 4:29 am

    To nije AK 47 to je CZ M70.

  29. КиСюНи on May 26, 2023 at 4:30 am

    И если тестируете то тестируйте м16 40х годов выпуска, ато глянь ка калаш 45 года а АР свежая доработанная.

  30. James Corless on May 26, 2023 at 4:32 am

    I’d take an ak over an ar any day and I’m american.

  31. vernon knapp on May 26, 2023 at 4:32 am

    The Achilles heel of the AR platform is the firing pin retaining pin. A part that receives some punishment and if it is cheap or has a flaw it will fail. Without that cotter pin, the rifle is down. The AKM uses solid pins and cannot fail in this fashion.

  32. Johannes Kirves on May 26, 2023 at 4:34 am

    One can easily see that the tester is rooting for the ar to perform better than it does.

  33. Adam Meredith on May 26, 2023 at 4:35 am

    I would love to see a torture test of high end pistols. Sig, H&K, CZ, Desert Eagle, etc….

  34. Charles Andre Amahan on May 26, 2023 at 4:36 am

    I’ve watched allot of AR torture test, way way worst than what you did. And it runs very good in the dirt and mud.

  35. P H on May 26, 2023 at 4:36 am

    Could you Test the PWS and the POF? I would be intrested in seeing piston AR’s vs AK’s since they are similar.

  36. Charted on May 26, 2023 at 4:36 am

    Fucj russia

  37. Juan Romero on May 26, 2023 at 4:37 am

    Wowwwe. Zelenski testing guns

  38. Milesium-487 on May 26, 2023 at 4:42 am

    I didn’t know Zelenskyy had his own YouTube channel

  39. Edgar Smittenheighnjenkson on May 26, 2023 at 4:42 am

    The fail button on the AR is Fucking useless idk why it’s even there.

  40. Adrian Moreno on May 26, 2023 at 4:42 am

    dude loves touching the assist

  41. Carisco 1859 on May 26, 2023 at 4:43 am

    No one uses a carbine length gas tube anymore 😂

  42. MYNAMEISFROWNER on May 26, 2023 at 4:45 am

    The FA on the AR seems like it’s only really there for chambering a round more quietly – using it to force it into battery is just asking for trouble. I heard this one story where this guy had some sort of malf in the middle of a firefight & hit the assist. It disabled his weapon & took him out of the fight.

  43. ThreeRaccoon159 on May 26, 2023 at 4:47 am

    W the Yugoslavian AK

  44. The GhOst Eater on May 26, 2023 at 4:47 am

    the yugoslav ak is one of the worst versions of ak out there if you want a fair comparison at least bring a russian ak or mid priced american replica

  45. ArnolfoAbetria Bucio on May 26, 2023 at 4:48 am

    Can you reload back the ammo that fail

  46. Artem Tyan on May 26, 2023 at 4:50 am


  47. X Roonos on May 26, 2023 at 4:51 am

    Американские дауны, АК по заводской спецификации рассчитан на отстрел только 8 магазинов, потом он разваливается. ХВАТИТ ЗАНИМАТЬСЯ ТУПЫМ ОНАНИЗМОМ.

  48. Yugoslavia on May 26, 2023 at 4:51 am

    What’s the point of AR-15 forward assest

  49. RAM TRUCKS on May 26, 2023 at 4:52 am

    I used the M16A2 in USMC.. it’s a jammatic POS

  50. Tshepo Motau on May 26, 2023 at 4:52 am

    And AR-15 is reliable. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
