    Series starts October 10th at 10pm

    Saw the commercial tonight while watching American Chopper. Looks pretty interesting. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint like "Sons of Guns" turned out to.

    From what I've read and seen the guy knows his shit. So thats a plus. Haha I'm cautiously optimistic.

    But now what you don't want to hear, she's 16 y0! But as these are Discovery's release photos, it doesnt look like they mind even with the age issue.

    I wouldn't count on it not sucking, TV has gone straight to shit since "Reality TV" became the norm. It's pretty hard to fuck up a show about guns, but I am sure they will.

    Its a reality show about guns. So chances are it will have some jarring sequences of blinding stupidity. I watch Sons of Guns each week and will probably watch this show unless its just air head bimbo shit the whole time.

    With him actually machining a real working revolver from a block of aluminum I have higher hopes than for the dissapointment that is the southern retards from red jacket. There they build nothing I couldn't with the right resources.

    You're that skilled of a machinist? Impressive. I personally like the show a lot.

    I'm not a pro or anything, but did some light armory work in the Army, and I haven't seen anything super exciting come out of their shop :shrug: Some cool shit, but nothing mind blowing.

    That skilled? Where have they shown impressive skill really? I too enjoy watching it, but because I just like guns. The fact that anyone with a little work on a lathe schematics of a particular firearm, and micrometers (like I said, the right resources) could do what they've done remains. Their suppressor work with both the shotgun and integral AK are about all I'm impressed with. Just about everything else is nothing extraordinarily different from what ANY shop could do.

    IDK, I really enjoyed the AK sniper, the Katana, and the remote control M16. I don't think it's their machine skills that got them the show, its them living up to their motto (If you can dream it, we can build it) and putting out some very off the wall stuff.

    The Glenn dude knows his shit. I mean building three mg 42 in a few days is damned impressive. Ive never known anyone with any of their AKs so i cant attest to the quality of their stuff but good gun smithing is an art rather than a job.

    I was impressed with the AK sniper til I found out it was a saga chambered in .308. Pretty much a long range round. All they really did is add a heavy barrel, tweak trigger pull, and add an AR style stock. If they made one perform like that in 7.62x39 then id be impressed.

    Flem definetly knows his shit. And they brought him in late probably for that reason. The tatted up guy knows his assault rifles as well. It's Will and that retard Chris that bring the show down. Will is seeming to get a real big head and acting like a dick. But that may be the editors fault. They could be "spicing up the story" by creating a Paul Sr-esque villain. TV is the best and worst thing for these shops.

    Edit: oh and the one that made the rockets and stuff for the anti tank gun is awesome with this stuff too.

    I think it has good potential. Revolves around the rest of the shop a lot more than Sons of Guns, but they are still doing builds. I kind of think its like a mix of Sons of Guns for obvious reasons and some not so obvious ones as well (pay attention to the wife,) Pawn Stars ( :eek: due to some buying/selling "history lessons" they show) and I'd almost throw American Chopper in there for the family aspect, but not quite.

    And of course, who doesnt love jailbait? :eek::ph34r::D
