    What happened to this rifle?

    I found it on THR and asked, but they didn't answer. The guy said it was his issue weapon.

    Did the barrel melt?

    It would take an EXTREME amount of heat to melt and warp a resulfrized steel barrel.

    Weird, looks almost like some pics of rifles that were in IED'd vehicles and got really warped from the blast...but it doesn't look (to my untrained eye) like there's a whole lot of violent blast damage on the rifle....

    If it were run over the gas tube would be bent and more disfigured. Thats one of the new speciality models for shooting around corners.

    It'll hit their sandals and they'll start screaming and shit and lose the will to fight.

    I know they run over AK's to deactivate them in iraq, looks like someone set their rifle down in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Looks like Private Snuffy left it somewhere he shouldn't have.
    I would guess crush rather than explosive damage.
