I do not know the reliability of the source however it seems a feasible possibility and worthy of watching for so you don't end up with bad equipment on a bad day

Thanks for posting.

Kinda goes along with the trumpet we all blow here about testing and working with your gear regularly.

A tourniquet takes a lot of abuse in use.

The source appears to be legit in this anyway and the fakes are out there, stay away from the hong kong junk and get it from a reliable source and then try it out for sure
another thing that came up is most real/decent ones will have an NSN number

It seems he tightened it up too much in the video... The machine stopped the sound before it broke... Hard to REALLY test without actual blood from an artery spewing... Will have to look at mine. My first two came from JRH, but I found some at a gun show several years ago at a surplus table for only $5 each and bought several more. I will have to look closely at those, but they looked legit...
