A shootout between five WWII sniper rifles and two Civil War cannons. A massive rebuild of a tank destroyer and the fierce Quad 50 mobile machine gun. An epic cross-continent hunt for an ultra-rare rifle and an operational flamethrower. Military history buff Paul Shull is on a mission to touch, hold, and fire some of the greatest pieces of weaponry on the planet. Get an up-close look at some of the most iconic weapons of the last 150 years and witness the awesome firepower they still have on The Weapon Hunter.
Join rock n' roll promoter and expert swordsman Paul Shull on his mission to unearth the wildest weapons of historic warfare in THE WEAPON HUNTER. Helping him is a loosely knit, highly secretive group of eccentric historians, battlefield-sleuths and arms collectors. Together they revive war relics and get them battle-ready. From sword fights to tank battles, Shull puts himself in harms way to feel the impact these weapons had and to discover how they revolutionized warfare.
