LRB Destructive test

Once in a while I am privileged to tidbits of industry insider information. This doesn’t happen often and usually it is accompanied by a disclaimer or a request for confidentiality which I always honor. This is one of the happy exceptions.

Last week I received a call from my friend Lou Biancospino, the owner of LRB Arms in Floral Park, New York. He told me LRB has survived the hurricane and flooding that plagued much of New York. That in itself was good news indeed. He also told me that he was in receipt of a report from the H.P. White Laboratory, Inc. regarding recent destructive testing of one of LRB’s M14 rifles.

The H.P. White Laboratory is one of the most respected labs in the country who specialize in product testing. Lou thought the results were significant, but he is always reluctant to toot his own horn so to speak, He did however say it would be OK if I let the news out. He would postpone flogging until later…

So, I found a copy of the lab report in my mail box on December 14th. It was published on December 5, 2012. LRB Arms M14SA rifle serial number 034XX was submitted on November 21, 2012 with a request for destructive testing. Testing was conducted in accordance with provisions of HPW-TP-0101.00, EXCESSIVE PRESSURE TEST. Special cartridges were intentionally overloaded in steps starting slightly below SAAMI Service and increasing. Pressure was measured in pounds per square inch (PSI).

Round Pressure (PSI) Damage

1 49,220 None
2 63,220 None, Approx. maximum average
3 80,420 None, Approx. proof pressure
4 104,020 None
5 108,020 None
6 110,020 None
7 119,020 Action had to be opened with a mallet due to damage to bolt face and extractor failure

The destructive pressure tests are not pass-fail, and the information is presented for engineering analysis only.

It was noted that there was no damage to the receiver or barrel and that head space after the test remained the same as before testing. I don’t know how many other companies have run these tests on their rifles, but LRB has certainly established a new goal for the competition.

Receiver integrity was such that it was felt that the cartridge cases could have been completely filled with the testing powder creating much higher pressures without damage to the receiver. The failure of the extractor caused the test to end because a replacement was not available.

I am impressed and I think this should end any doubts about the integrity of hammer forged receivers.

I recently inspected a M1 Garand receiver that suffered a catastrophic failure due to a squib load that left a bullet stuck in the barrel. The subsequent shot caused the case to rupture, which blew apart the stock, broke the bolt (the lugs did not fail), blew off the magazine floor plate and damaged several other parts. The receiver cracked on the bottom of the barrel ring and at the bridge. The barrel had no obvious damage, but the re are two bullets stuck in the bore about four inches behind the muzzle and the cartridge case nearly melted into the chamber walls. A portion of the cartridge case base was firmly attached to the bolt face. The receiver is a 5.4 million range serial number. Food for thought.
