To be honest it lasted well, it wasn't a new rifle as it was made in 2014 and had been issued.I read on another site that the barrel temperature got up to around 850 °C

From the article......

"The overall result appears to be quite solid – at least according to the Russian Army’s demands, which require an assault rifle to be able to withstand the shooting of ‘just’ 180 rounds in full-auto mode. “This firing rate is not considered normal for the weapon,” the Kalashnikov expert frankly warns, before proceeding with the torturous test"

True, but it isn't very often you see a manufacturer doing it........
