Which funs does /k/ agree can take the most punishment and still continue to get the job done?
With the nugget and the AK already said. Stories of miraculous gun endurance also welcome
Manurhin MR 73 revolvers are designed and built to shoot 150 full power .357 magnum training rounds per day, indefinitely.
Many have been in service for over 20 years, having shot over a million rounds.

Actually fondled one at a gun show in Hali
Mane the tiny book that came with it had this.
"Under no circumstance place mud or dirt inside the breech or barrel. This weapon will disintegrate."
What modern-ish- guns can take the most damage?
Not a gun but aimpoints are known to be extremely durable
if you decide to go through a swim in some shit and piss and mud, and pile mud into your gun for no reason, the ar will still work as long as your dust cover was up. it's a stupid fucking test that shows pretty much nothing, but y'know, whatever man.
ruger P and DC pistols are fucking tanks
hi point pistols are unkillable
g3 rifles and clones are "go to space" grade
the M2 50cal ones made in the 50's are still in combat today
Not that anon but, I'd imagine it goes something like this.
>get km or so of cable.
>attach firearm to rocket, via said cable.
>Set it up through a pulley so rifle gets dragged about a km across the ground.
>LAUNCH THAT BITCH TO THE MOTHERFUCKING MOON.
That isn't the only kind of durability that exists, that's a one-time situation that doesn't exactly simulate everything a service rifle might go through in its lifetime.
On top of that you're trying to compare two whole weapons platforms and making as wild a generalization as "the AR can take more than the AK" is pretty retarded in general. Durability can vary so much depending on which variant and model year you have, any one test means pretty much nothing.
I have owned and shot both and have no preference one way or the other. They're both beautiful and rugged platforms. Please stop being fucking stupid and just repeating the latest hot meme.
I'm surprised no-one has mentioned Suomi m/31 submachine gun yet. True 1st generation submachine gun designed by a self-educated inventor Aimo Lahti, who could not do math for calculating structural durability and probably due to that tended to have more than enough steel in his firearms. This weapon is seriously heavy (6.48 kilograms / 14.4. pounds with full 70-round magazine) to be a 9-mm submachinegun. Cyclic rate (with Finnish submachine gun ammo) about 900 rounds per minute. The design also has a quick change barrel and was commonly issued with two barrels which both had about the same point of impact (no need to zero in the weapon after swapping barrel). Most common magazine type was 70-round drum, which the Soviets copied for their own submachineguns (PPD & PPSh). Remarkably reliable and accurate weapon, but also very expensive to manufacture.
How effective was it - February 1942 corporal Viljam Pylkäs armed with Suomi m/31 (and assisted by another soldier who loaded magazines for him) ambushed company size Soviet force and had a firefight against it. By end of the firefight he had killed over 80 Soviet soldiers.
Structurally this thing is so strong if that one accidentally fires it with round (with no gunpowder or much too little of it) that leaves bullet in bore, one just needs to fire the next round after it - and it will knock off the stuck bullet. This will create a bulge in barrel and may blow out extractor claw, but if one turns right of the weapon down it will still extract cartridge cases and keep running. Introduced in year 1931 these remained in Finnish inventory until 1990's.
