Added link of follow up video in MAC-10 section.
It's been a year since I started watchingForgotten Weapons over on YouTube. Like most CS players, I am also a gun enthusiast. In fact, it was with modding CS that I acquired this.
The show is presented by Ian McCollum (a.k.a Gun Jesus), a gun collector and historian, and he presents armaments with historical and mechanical significance. Granted the show has far less shooting range sessions than other Guntubers. But I have yet to see anyone explain a gun's background and inner workings as detailed and concise as Ian does. You won't see any watermelons being shot here, but there's a lot of disassembly, mechanical workings explained, and interesting facts and history on each weapon.
So if you like guns, or dabble in engineering, or just want something to watch on your afternoon tea, consider spending 10-20 minutes and giving Forgotten Weapons a go.
PS: At this point you might be thinking that placing 'Counter-Strike' on the title was some kind of clickbait. You're half right. Below is a list of CS weapons that have been featured in the show. For the uninitiated CS player, this would be a good start. Learn amusing facts about your favorite guns and see the inner workings that make them tick.
Originally titled "Type 1 Russian AK: The Actual AK-47" (as evidenced here), this one was a re-uploaded version of the video for reasons still unknown to me. I clearly remember him saying most of the "AK-47's" we see today are actually AK-49s and this is the real deal.
CS PRO has also provided in the comments a tidbit of interesting
information regarding the AK models used in the game. Here's a screencap
of what he said:
The real AWP was actually black in color and had a shorter barrel. The one in the game emulates is the AWM, or the L115A3 so designated by the British Army. Ian also covers both A1 and A2 predecessors in separate videos with an amusing true story of how Accuracy International started as a company.
Ian also did a video on the MAC Operational Briefcase, a briefcase where you can store and shoot the MAC-10 from. Yes, shoot it from inside the briefcase.
Also has a follow-up video on the Scout's special Ching Sling that works really clever.
Be sure to check the follow-up video where Ian gets his hands on a real South African MAG-7 with proper-sized shells.
As a bonus, here's a video about the Beretta 92 and what you can do when someone points it at you.
Been debating whether too include this or not since it's not about the Glock itself as a weapon but in the end I reckoned it's interesting enough to be included.
