I believe Metal Storm had a max rate of 1 million rounds per minute but that never hit production (probably a good thing at current .30 cal prices.)

But some anti gunners have said on TV (so it must be true) that ARs can fire 30 rounds per second / 1800 rounds per minute. I’d like to see the barrel after 1 minute on that one.
Suspect the gas tube would be an issue before the barrel. I saw a 100 round dump from a Beta C-Mag in a fully automatic M-16/AR platform that had the gas tube glowing pretty bright.
