Family Guns

Brought to you by: National Geographic

From the press release:

Meet the Indiana Joneses of historical weaponry: father-son duo Christian and Alex Cranmer, whose quests for military antiquities have taken them as far as a remote Nepalese palace filled with more than 55,000 rifles and muskets hidden away for more than a century. “We sell history,” Alex says, and that doesn’t mean books, it means priceless weapons like a $40,000 pistol from the Battle of Trafalgar; a $50,000, one-of-a-kind prototype for Confederate Civil War revolvers; and scores of rare-make World War I and World War II rifles and machine guns.

In the new nine-part series Family Guns, premiering Wednesday, September 12, at 10 p.m. ET/PT and airing weekly Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on National Geographic Channel, every day is a live-fire exercise for Christian and Alex, who buy, sell, trade and restore some of the world’s rarest firearms. But with two experts in the family and under one warehouse roof, theoffice politics can be as explosive as the weapons being sold.
