IraqVeteran8888 has built a steady YouTube following by torture testing firearms with his “meltdown” tests.

His latest test included a Gen 3 Glock 17, during which he fired as many rounds from the firearm to see how long it would take to fail.

According to the video description:

We are kicking Handgun Month off with a “bang” so to speak with a Glock 17 Meltdown. We had our friends over at Quiet Riot Firearms make the necessary modifications to our Gen 3 Glock 17 in order to add a registered auto sear and help make this baby cook! We think you guys are going to be impressed with the results, and you haters out there will be a bit disappointed.
