Default AR-15 vs M1A (and MAS 46/59) mud and sand tests

The results kind of surprised me. The AR-15 showed to be the most reliable of the rifles tested. So much for the M14/M1A's legendary reliability, with it unable to fire even one round without jamming.

I'm curious as to people's thoughts here. I'm not posting this to demean or discredit the M14, I'm just legitimately surprised by the result. I honestly expected more from the M1A.
