How Does AR500 Armor Hold Up to a Fully Automatic AK-47?

AR500 Armor is some tough stuff.

How well can it stand up to a fully automatic AK-47?

Watch this video and see if the AR500 Armor can survive an AK-47 machine gun.

TWANGnBANG shares this cool experiment, seeing if AR500 Armor can survive a fully automatic AK-47.

In this case an AMD-65 AK-47 variant is tested firing bursts directly into a mannequin protected by the AR500 Armor. The armor actually survives these 7.62x39mm bullets.

The spalling of the bullets can create fragments that can cause lacerations though as the mannequin shows. This though is a small price to avoid getting center punched by an AK-47 bullet.
