If you think that is hot try a FAL, it gets very hot after 3 mags!

Ahhh, but the beauty is that it was designed to take some minimum amount of abuse, and 200-300 rounds is mere child's play for an assault rifle, IMHO.[>]:)]

Sounds about normal to me, especially if you are using a M4 or small diameter barrel. I have a extra Heavy bullbarrel and it gets hot. Over a long period of ime it may cause warpage if you get it really hot for long periods of time. But using semi auto fire only I doubt it ever gets to that point. Now if you're "bump firing" that's a different story. sgtar15

My AK gets real hot after about 60 shots of rapid fire.[}:)]

I have to replace the sling on my SKS every so often because the leather tab burns out.paulw

I had my Sar2 smoking (last Saturday) after only 60 rounds. Not bump fire, but close. I don't like to bump fire being a lefty... too much brass near my face. [:P]
