IIIA+ Body Armor Test w/ Full-Auto MP5 & Uzi


Hey guys I’m out here with my Zenith MP5
and my 9mm Freedom Munitions and over there I have the RMA Armament SRT plate
and we’re gonna shoot it and see what happens. So let’s see what that did OK so here it is, right where I wanted it,
right in the middle I checked the back, and it didn’t go through, it’s not deformed, so let’s put some more down and see what happens let’s go take a look OK so here it is
you can see about 12/13 holes here On the top you can see it kind of went… this is stuck in here [the bullet] and then one went up this way
and it got him kind of lower right neck area so we’re going to take this off
and see what looks like on the back so here’s the front of the plate, you can see the holes, we’ll turn it around look at the back there are some deformities here if you feel it
but as you can see nothing went through back over to the front, this shot right here
penetrated the plate and the bullet is actually still in there and then this
one here went over the top of the plate and went into him so this actually
didn’t quite hit the plate so it was a miss from one of the three round bursts so guys here we are we have the plate off and as you can see in this area the paint has just kind of rubbed off it’s just from the plate pushing into him…
up here you can see that the paint is chipped off and then there’s a little
hole it’s because the bullet went over the plate and it went and hit him right here
so this is another reason why you should wear your plate higher up
rather than lower down So the Uzi was unimpressed by the MP5 shooting at the plate so he wants a go… OK so as you guys can see on the rubber dummy, he took some hits here on the lower abdomen these are just rub marks from the plate
and there’s a few shots he took here on the side but on the back of the plate
you can see that none of the bullets actually came through the plate…
so there are more than 70 rounds that are in that plate right now, so I’d say that’s pretty damn good OK guys so we are back at the house and I just wanted to review the plate, as you can see it’s pretty deformed but if you turn it over to the
back none of the bullets actually went through and that’s exactly what you want to see
so this sort of matches what we saw on the dummy
looking at him you could see that there were holes below the plates as well as above the plate and on the sides, but there weren’t any holes where the actual plate was sitting
so I don’t know about you guys but I’m kind of curious as to what it looks like inside
so let’s cut it open all right so as you guys can see that
this bullet here was the one that was on the top and it’s totally flattened out
there, this one as well, kind of twisted and then these are the different layers
and you can see it’s all caught up in there you can kind of peel these layers, it’s
kind of neat, you can see how deep it actually went so here’s one right here
it’s all flattened out it’s really embedded in there
but all these fibers caught it and that’s the back So the SRT plate is rated IIIA+ and what
that basically means is it’s rated for handgun calibers as well as a few rifle calibers
with non steel core so this wasn’t the best test for the plate
but I just wanted to shoot it with my Uzi anyway I do have another plate
and with this one I can test it to it’s full rating so if you guys don’t mind commenting below
let me know what you liked, didn’t like this is the first time I’ve ever done a video on testing so I just want to get your thoughts on that
thanks for watching

  1. I believe you did a great review for your first one. I like the different ways you shot it (1, 3 rd burst, full) showing how it held up. Seems to be a pretty sturdy plate. That's a lot of bullets to contain. IG: rondvc40
    Good job !!!!

  2. It worked better than I expected. Nice shooting. I've ordered a pair of the same ear buds you were using in the video. Can't wait to try them out. Surprise52 IG.

  3. Nice first shot. Dead center.
    You should get a high speed camera for your videos.
    I'm eric_burson in instagram, btw. πŸ™‚

  4. Enjoyed the video review! I especially liked how you dissected the plate afterward and peeled the Kevlar fibers back to see how deep the bullets penetrated.

  5. Not to be a safety sally but you should have gloves on when messing with the lead and copper jackets no reason to get cut or more lead exposure than necessary. love the mp5

  6. Does anyone realy carry those chestplates or is it just a shtf thing to have at home? Nice video nontheless, but i would have liked to know what ammo you were using. Maybe try it with some extreme penetrators or simmilar πŸ™‚

  7. Great Video! I would like to see it tested with 556 m193 at different distances. No steel core it should hold up?

  8. I think you should describe what you are testing before the test. What the rating is, what it should do. I know nothing about armor plates or bullet proof vest. Also maybe add a second person in the video, someone for you to talk to. Maybe more personality and fun will come out from you and the video will be more enjoyable.

  9. Idk how I ended up here lol but nice vid. Full auto looked like heaven. The dummy liked it so much it couldn't stay on its feet πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Whats up with all the IG names??? Do we have a couple of male insta-whores on here 😏

  10. +leaspeed6 I love your channel. Please keep up the good work. On the 2nd plate, maybe a 5.56 and 300 AAC test? They probably won't go through, but it would be interesting. I've thought about getting one of those plates and putting it in my backpack, where a laptop would go. Could always flip it around to protect your front if there's trouble. Peace & Respect.

  11. taking 70ish rounds and not going through is pretty impressive. I liked the video. glad you mentioned wearing plates high! good job, keep em coming.

  12. @leaspeed6 You should test the plates and carrier from @operatorscache He's local and makes them himself. I think he's only on instagram so far.

  13. It's cool to slap the charging handle but over time it will wear the "detent" to where it wont hold open the bolt anymore.

    Good video. It's nice to see you beyond still images.

  14. Plates vs. Common hunting rounds… .308, .270, .30-06, 7mm rem mag, latest craze 6.5 Creedmoor. Would be interesting to see a plate rated for such hold up to these cartridges. Good stuff.

  15. Great job with the testing it was interesting to see the results with so many rounds in it. Keep the videos coming!

  16. Cool test, I would like to know how much lighter it is than a steal plate and is it any more flexible and or comfortable to wear?

  17. What did I like?? You, the MP5, and the Uzi,,that's what I liked, what I didn't like was the fact that I wasn't there with you!!

  18. Great job. I do want to see you test that with some 5.7 and 300 black out. You are one gorgeous woman who loves guns, wish there were more. Blessings

  19. Now let's try it with 1 ounce 12 guage slugs. They may not penetrate but I guarantee you they'll have some busted up ribs and a knock down is very likely.

  20. Great Seeing a Lady into the Shooting Sports Lea! Nice Job Demoing Soft Body Armor and What it is Capable of! Try Some Civil Liberty 9MM 50 grn Ammo… Thanx for Posting! Peace…

  21. I'm left handed as well, and considering picking up one of the MP5 clones. Do you have any issues running it left handed? I've got a CZ Scorpion thats fully ambi that i really like.

  22. Love the demonstration. Makes me concerned a bit about that top round that slipped off the plate and hit him in the neck- maybe a slight redesign with a flange or lip could deflect that-

  23. How heavy are they? Are they expensive? They must not be too uncomfortable if you use them, amIright? Thanks for another informative vid!

  24. In another video I saw you had a Glock 20, shoot the plate with underwood extreme penetrator 10mm ammo with your Glock 20.

  25. So these plates have real weak points. If law enforcement encountered a bad guy while wearing the plate, the bad guy would just have to shoot at the edges of the plate and they will be down for the count even if the bullet doesn't penetrate the plate.

  26. πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ 😍😍😍 😘😘😘 πŸ˜›πŸ˜›πŸ˜› 😝😝😝 😜😜😜 πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ πŸ€™πŸ€™πŸ€™ ✌️✌️✌️ ‼️‼️‼️

  27. I'm confused, I thought this was a ceramic plate but it looks like soft body armor. I had no idea there was soft body armor out there rated for rifle rounds.

  28. In our place where tribal conflict is an everday life and auto rifles are the trend. Only a dumbass would buy a class 3 body armor, waste of money.. just go for class 4,.

  29. A great test for the plate would be that P90, using the Elite T6 copper ammo and other 5.7*28 rounds, especially in full auto.😎

  30. If you shoot with MP7A1 bullet would go through,this is only so far great and compact submachine gun that exist,however Russians have PP2000 with specially designed SP8 and SP9 saboting point armor piercing round that if not 100% 85% guarantee armor penetration including Class 3C armor vest….

  31. Solid video. Always enjoy your different toys and unique senarios. Shoot that plate with more automatics.

  32. MP5 vs IIIA armor – IIIA armor wins
    Uzi vs IIIA armor – IIIA armor wins
    Scissor vs IIIA armor – Scissor win

    Scissor > IIIA armor > MP5 / Uzi

  33. Cool plate, but it would totally suck to get smoked that many times in the chest w/o penetration!

  34. My love that since you're also a nurse could explain the damage would be caused. Bruised chest area? Kisses beautiful.and hug me buddy Milo for me eh?

  35. I don’t know what it is but you’re so boring to watch. Maybe cause you show little to no personality. Maybe loosen up and have a little more fun making videos. Smile more.

  36. I would like to see the mp5 tested on brick and block work to see if it's safe for uk police to use in an indoor environment as the projectile shouldn't travel no further than the target
