NYT Article about M4 production and torture tests.

The New York Times has a couple of articles about the production of the M4 Carbine. They have a couple of videos of torture tests on the M4 and the M4A1. The problem is everything smaller than a SAW will fail eventually after enough full auto fire. Rounds begin to cook off in closed bolt guns and barrels begin to fail in both closed and open bolt guns.
