Not sure if this has been posted but thought it was cool. Was pretty surprised how long the barrel and everything else lasted under the conditions.

Colt did that with their M4s when there was reports of rifle failure during a super long fire fight in Iraq

They compared M4 barrel contour which burst after 535 rounds, and the M4-A1 barrel lasted 911 rounds when the gas tube broke. It would still cycle manually and fire after that.
