A friend at work the other day was talking up the Sig DAK pistols, so I was just doing a quick read-up. Now I very rarely read acticles from gun magazines anymore, I never feel that I can trust them. I skimmed over this article, and I can't help but be skeptical again. This article claims in testing, they pressed a bullet into the bore of the barrel, and then fired a live round behind it.

Shooting Times article (Tests are on Page 3)


Plugged Barrel Test: "An appropriate caliber bullet for the chambered caliber will be pressed into barrel from the breech to a depth of 1.16 inches as measured from the breech. The barrel will be re-installed and the pistol fired using one round of service ammunition. Any barrel deformation or damage will be noted. The test will be repeated, with a second pistol, with a bullet lodged 0.5 inch from the end of the muzzle. Any barrel deformation or damage will be noted."


Several other less impressive tests mentioned, and:


Okay, you tell me. Would you expect any handgun you currently own to function under these conditions? The SIG pistols did.


I wish they would have said what they 'noted' during this test.

Maybe the author had no fingers left to write anything after conducting his test...
