Have any of you guys seen that show Sons of Guns on the Discovery channel?

I watched an episode where they apparentlly made an actual working surppressed shotty.

They built it on a Saiga 12 and apparently made it more of a permanet mod to the barrel.

Pretty interesting.

Just watched them put together a MaDeuce kit the other night, full auto.

Might have to watch more of them.

I have been watching, but I don't really see what they are doing that is so revolutionary. It was awesome seeing Hershel W. Williams on there with his M2 flamethrower. I had the honor of meeting and speaking to him about a year ago.

Red Jacket is our local NFA dealer. I don't really think that anyone is trying to say that what they do is revolutionary... it's just the Orange County Choppers of the firearms community.

I think you're right nothing that special except I thought that surppressed shotgun was...at least to my knowledge I don"t know of any that actually work. I could be wrong of course.

I thought the choice of using a mag fed, non SBS Saiga mounted under an M-16 as a Master Key was kind of clunky. Barrel length was too long and the mag just seemed to me to be a protruding part waiting to get hung up on something. An 870 SBS seems the better choice and still the mainstay. Otherwise, not a bad show.

Saw that one too - very inspiring. Watching that guy use a flamethrower - you could tell the ol' muscle memory was still there.

Is that a quick release mount on the top CM?? I have seen them in SOTIC's locker, but not the mount/holster for the rig.

The flamethrower episode was pretty legit, its always awesome seeing ol' salt dogs back in their element like that. But other than that didnt see much special about the weapons so far. And the fact that he said he hadn't come within a stones throw of an M2 makes me wonder what MOS he held while in the Corps. 2c

I thought the whole light AR thing on the show was stupid. Like ben just said not new at all.

The integral surprressed AK was cool looking anyway but I don't get why you would want one since they have plenty of detachable ones. Other than the fact I guess that the intergral one dosn't add any length.

Yeah, I loved how he was saying it can't be done... only to do it
As soon as he said nobody had done it I thought the same thing. Nobody had done that before because there were easier way to get the job done.

Seems like a bunch of coon-asses building guns to me, can't go wrong with that! :)

I liked it better than "Pawn Stars":rolleyes:

I just spit up coffee. :D

I gotta tell ya, when a Sheriff comes in with a knock off semi auto Tommy gun wanting it built to be full auto (select fire) and with a rail and foregrip "for his guys on the entry team" I changed the channel to Glee. :rolleyes:

Yeah I saw thatone too I couldn't believe that, I was thinking what the hell is going on with that SWAT team that they could afford to convert a Tommy gun and not to just go buy a M4 or MP5.
