The Weapon Hunter Air Dates


S01E03 - Civil War Cannons Air Date: 20 October 2015 00:00 -

Host Paul Shull takes a journey through Tennessee, Kentucky and Oregon to find and fire the deadliest pieces of light field artillery of the Civil War: the 10lb Parrott and the 3-inch Ordnance Rifle. But before he can fire off these powerful weapons, he must take a crash course and become a cannoneer. Follow Paul as he makes his own projectiles and meets eccentric collectors and battle reenactors. Then see him finally come face to face with the most impressive and devastating rifled guns of the bloody conflict that tore America apart.


S01E04 - Nazi Assault Rifle Air Date: 27 October 2015 00:00 -

To military history collectors, it's the rarest of all machine guns. The FG-42 assault rifle, designed specifically for German World War II paratroopers, is so rare that they now sell for thousands of dollars at auctions. It's considered almost unattainable, but that doesn't stop host Paul Shull from attempting to not only find one but to pull its trigger as well. Join him on this impossible quest as he reaches outside his usual network of collectors to find this innovative weapon and see if it lives up to its mythic reputation.


S01E05 - Monster Machine Gun Air Date: 03 November 2015 01:00 -

It's fast, ferocious, powerful, and ultra-rare. The mobile machine gun called the Quad 50 was one of the most punishing weapons of World War II, but it's rarely seen today. Host Paul Shull accepts the challenge to bring one back to life, but it may prove to be his toughest rebuild yet. Join him as he travels across North America, gathering rare parts and meeting an incredible bunch of collectors and gunsmiths to resurrect "The Meat Chopper."


S01E06 - Flamethrowers Air Date: 10 November 2015 01:00 -

The flamethrower is one of the most terrifying weapons in existence, capable of launching a 2,200-degree wall of fire over 100 feet. The U.S. military stopped using them in 1978, and today only a few remain, and even fewer can safely be fired. If host Paul Shull finds one, will he properly use it? Follow him as he calls upon the world's leading flamethrower experts on what could be his most dangerous quest ever. Then watch as he gets a firsthand lesson in how to fire the devastating machine that helped turn the tide of World War II.
