'Sons of Guns'

ATF Investigation

Over Insane Machine Gun

Sons Of Guns Investigation
Federal agents had to swoop in to help the high-caliber cowboys from Discovery's "Sons of Guns" locate a shipment of weapons -- including one incredibly destructive machine gun -- that got lost in the mail.

TMZ has learned the gun shop on the show -- Red Jacket Firearms -- recently sent some of their custom machine guns from Baton Rouge to Las Vegas for an event. One of the guns is nicknamed "Master Blaster" for good reason -- it combines a Saiga 12 gauge shotgun with a MAC-11 sub-machine gun!

Sources connected to RJF tell us some of the guns were leased from third parties, and when RJF's shipment back to Baton Rouge got delayed ... the owner of the weapons got pissed and snitched to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. 

We're told the owner reported the guns as missing, and ATF agents sprung into action to locate the weapons -- which are legal and licensed.

Turns out it was just a normal mail snafu -- however, we're told production on the TV show was halted until they got the all clear the guns were safe and sound.

Boys and their toys.

This guy makes legal gun owners look like dopes. He can not make any weapons that do what they promise. All the hype and all the crap.

Are those legal in some states!? And the Shop owner acts like he is a firearms genius. The only thing he does is glue guns together.

I'm a gun owner but there is absolutely no reason for fully automatic weapons in the hands of civilians ,NONE.

The ATF requires that ALL missing firearms must be reported in 48 hours. The guns were shipped via common carrier and were listed as delivered...and they were not. The owner of the guns did exactly what he was supposed to do.

I am a gun owner too. How can this be anywhere near legal. There is NO reason a weapon like this to be built. Just because of a TV show and the NRA. Guns like this should not be made.

I stopped watching shows that need to take 3 or more camera positions for one scene and BS fake drama. Takes away the reality feeling of the show.
