Keep Your Carbine in the Fight

October 2nd, 2019

No matter how high quality your firearm may be, you likely will face a time where you must be ready and capable to clear a malfunction with it. Whether environmental or ammo-based, any gun can experience a mechanical malfunction — and having one of these at the wrong time can be deadly.

Yamil worked with firearms expert Freddie Blish on covering carbine malfunction clearance drills.

I recently had the chance to do some work on the range covering carbine malfunction clearance. I learned the ins and outs of Type 1 (failure to feed or fire), Type 2 (failure to properly eject), Type 3 (failure to extract or a double-feed) and Type 8 (a “bolt-over” misfeed, as in your day just got “8” up) malfunctions.

Understanding how to deal with worst-case scenarios can help ensure you can address them if you face one.

With these hands-on tips, you’ll be prepared for when you might hear that loudest sound in a gunfight — a click when you expect a “bang.” So check out the video above and be prepared.
