Like any other tool mankind uses, guns don’t last forever. Even top-quality firearms will wear down with use over time. The only difference is how long it takes, and how much use.
Strangely enough, the best place to look for the most durable weapons in circulation today isn’t in law enforcement or even the military. As important as weapons are to both of these institutions, guns (thankfully) aren’t fired as often as you would think.
In Hollywood, this is a completely different story.
Enter ISS Props: home to one of the largest gun collections in the world. Started in an old Lockheed hanger over 40 years ago, the company made a name for itself by renting out firearms to production companies for use in Hollywood films. And as anyone who has worked in media production knows, these props are used over, and over, and over again — so durability is key.
Now, this isn’t to compare what Hollywood does to the heroism displayed by those in law enforcement or military service every single day. But the truth is that when guns are on set, they see almost constant use. So, if you want to get a good idea of what a “durable” firearm looks like, ISS Props is possibly the best place to look.
So, what are the top five most durable guns on the market today? TFB TV is on location with ISS to answer that question in the video below.
