An interesting watch to really see how the AK 74 works even without the gas tube in place..surprised to see how much barrel flex there is around the 1:33 mark..2:00 mark shows a close up of the piston resetting without a gas tube:

Pretty cool video Thanks for posting. That guy sure has a lot of faith in that rifle shooting it with out the top cover on it. I keep seeing that carrier continuing back into his head for some reason. Oh yeah must be the time I blew up an HK 91 that makes me think like that now.

Notice the bullet tumble at the beginning.

Just beats itself silly, doesn't it?

Thats so cool!! I love how it still works even without the gas tube.

Is it just my imagination, or is the bullet tumbling a lot? I wouldnt have thought it would move like that so soon out of the barrel.

Amazing that it can be as accurate as it is...

For the tumbling I'm guessing that the rounds may be deflecting off the muzzle device or that as a full auto model the barrel is just shot out.
