Which guns are the most durable? In this episode of the “TFBTV Goes to Hollywood” series, James Reeves speaks with Larry Zanoff of Independent Studio Services about which of the 16,000 guns ISS keeps in inventory are the most reliable. ISS’s guns are rented out for Hollywood productions, video games, and more throughout the year, and these guns have millions of cumulative rounds run through them. Thus, Larry and the gang at ISS have an idea of what the five most durable guns are based upon their extensive experience firing blank and conventional ammunition through real guns. Which 5 are the hardest working? Watch today’s video to find out.

    In real life if your gun jam in a life or death situation you may die in movie if a gun jam you will not die 100% but it cost money,..i think he is saying money and preparation time for a scene is more important than a life.

    That is in reference to the tool. What makes the gun most dangerous is the operator. Ever body know, Sun Tzu "Art of War" 512 BC Chinese and Miyamoto Musashi "Book of Five Rings" mid 1500's Japanese. But really the Best philosophy of War as proven in the mid 350's BC and more recently again during WWII is Alexander the Great and the "Golden Means", too much courage and solider acts recklessly and dies, too little he is a coward that is no good either, in the middle he fights lives and gains war experience which makes him most effective and dangerous. Fast forward to WWII, Japanese Kamikaze mentality (probably going back to Tzu), man must die rather than loose face, honor, got most Japanese warriors dead fast. The American running Alexander the Great, Golden Mean, encouraged what is already natural for the fighting man to survive to live. After a while the Americans were fielding men and fighter pilots with great experience in war and in the air while the Japanese were fielding bushido code warriors, (the Samurai symbol is the Cherry blossom cause it's life is 1 or 2 days), with very little real war experience willing to die and the American Wolves with experience were more than willing and able to help then to that end. Philosophy in the gun and fighting talk world is becoming popular (maybe started or popularized by Nutnfancy) but real philosophy (love of wisdom) is so much more and very powerful. Alexander the Great's teacher was Aristotle, one of the world's greatest philosopher and polymath.

    Thats interesting they talk about gun reliability being so important in movies because Ive seen a lot of gun malfunctions in movies however the director probably just let it go because the acting was perfect and didnt want to redo the shot.

    So what exactly is different about these guns? They shoot blanks, I know that, but I’m curious; If you grab one of these guns off the wall, put loaded mag with regular projectile-based ammo into it will it run normally? Other than simply loading and firing blanks into them, are these guns 100% normal and this company just harbors thousands upon thousands of military-grade full auto weapons because of some regulation regarding owning firearms for “use in motion pictures”? Are these manufactured by a 3rd party to emulate the oem builds or are they bought straight from oems?

    It's not surprising that the AK-47 is in the top 5 most durable/reliable guns, but it is sad that there are no American companies that can make a good AK. It's even more pathetic that Chinese AKs are sought after and American AKs are only decent or even trash...

I bought one of those new in 1978 for under $7,000 and worked it hard in construction, manufacturing, and recreation until 2006 when I sold it in good running order for $500.

    Anyway the title is misleading. As I tell everybody all the time he wants to ban the AR that it’s not a gun, it’s a platform. Of course you’re basically name the top three handgun manufacturers and then the two platforms that comprise the modern sporting rifle.. Bullshit title for a bullshit list in a bullshit video. Waste of time.

    The AK actually was invented by the Germans in WW 2, called Sturmgewehr 44. Check and compare. The Russians then took the design and production machines, did an adaption to their standard caliber, and called the thing Kalashnikow.

    So the reliability of a firearm to make sure your scene in a fictional movie goes well is more important than the reliability of a firearm that a first responder needs in order to save a life? According to this guy, a movie is more important than a human life.
