Even since the resounding success of the “Inside the AK” videos (Part 1 and Part 2), Larry Vickers has been at it hard with additional cut-away firing models of popular weapon systems. The previous release of the 1911, sponsored by Wilson Combat, was and is an utterly georgous example of shooting, machining, and video editing. Not content to let the people’s wants go unfulfilled, Vicker’s and BCM worked out their latest installment: “Inside the M4”
In absolutely stunning 4K resolution, no less.
Unfortunately, I am limited to 1080p on my home screens, but watching the footage on a computer monitor meant for design and marketing, I am absolutely floored by the footage.
Starting off with the “basic” slow-motion footage, I thought I was along for another well-produced, if unexciting YouTube video. I was wrong. Within the first minute, Vickers Tactical starts to impose and ghost in the inner workings of the AR-15 using an expertly cut-away weapon system. Coupled with the equally fantastic sound editing (I am curious if it is from the actual shooting footage – if so, even more impressive).
It gives one yet another reason to appreciate the hard work of those designers well over five decades ago. I’m sure Stoner would find this a suitable tribute.
Enjoy the video, and if you get the opportunity, you need to watch it on a 4K screen.
