1000 Rounds of 9mm Belt-Fed Glory

    Freedom Ordnance of Indiana is making waves with its upcoming 9mm belt-fed upper receiver. In their latest teaser, the FM-9 is put to a 1000 round belt and eats it without issue. In the comments, Freedom Ordnance indicates the belt was over 45 feet long prior to the torture test.

    Honestly, its a boring (but intriguing) watch. The upper digests all the rounds without issue. I personally thought the firearm would move into IV8888-style meltdown territory. Alas, it was not to be.

    But, it proves the firearm a robust platform with lots of potential. Those interested can pre-order one direct from Freedom Ordnance. Pricing is set at $2495 retail with pre-order at $1895.
