Dugan on Light Machine Guns

Alex, Patrick and myself are big fans of Dugan and his CarniK Con Youtube Channel. His style is best described as “over-the-top 1980s action movie”. In this episode Dugan explores the world of LMG’s, with some tank action thrown in to the mix.

      My favorite line.

  • John Yossarian

    CarnikCon (and beer) are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

  • I firmly hold the belief that this is the best gun-related video on youtube. Many of the firearms used are so rare that to even shoot one would be a treat, but having them all in one place? Amazing!
    Not to mention their production values are nothing short of spectacular: it would take an incalculable amount of hours to do what they do over there. Not to mention they had a tank. So the race for the best youtube gun video is over: Dugan wins!

    In all sincerity check out their channel and hit the subscribe button. They have some truly great and hilarious stuff on there.

      I have to concur. Dugan and his team are turning out outstanding video after outstanding video. Please, for the love of all things that go bang, Keep making them man!

    Randy Broshankle says it best. CarniK Con are most definitely the leaders in firearm excellence.

    Anyone who doesn’t subscribe to Carnik Con is a Canadian!

    • Michael Mabey

      I guess we poor people of The People’s Republic Kunuckastan can’t subscribe

      • Grindstone50k

        It’s a reference to one of his videos, but you wouldn’t get it, you’re Canadian…

      Anyone who doesn’t have their wife/girlfriend get a Carnik Con logo tattooed on their lower back is a Canadian!

      Fixed! (humor)

  • Their P90 review is excellent as well.

    I like this guy. And for some reason I find the Ameli and extraordinarily sexy gun, would make a great companion for my Cetme L if I can ever get the parts to build it.

    • n0truscotsman

      I’ve heard interesting stories about that gun. Basically that initial models submitted for testing beat other LMGs, like the M249/Minimi, but subsequent production had various quality control issues. I admit I dont know much about it though, but have always been drawn to its looks.

      The MG42 parent design was one of the greatest weapons of its type ever conceived, if not the greatest.

    If it wasn’t for dugan and his crew, I would have never known that the compartment in my AR’s pistol grip was for storing skittles.

    Nobody recognizes the copilot?

  • wildbillb

    ULTIMAX! killed every can of pop and NEVER…. TOUCHED… THE… TABLE. wow.

  • Cattoo

    Curious. How long the lmg have been in country? NFA items being not allowed to be imported into the U.S. and some of the weapons look brand new. Just curious is all.

    • Xanderbach

      If you have a friend with an FFL 07/02, they can have “post-sample” MGs. That’s how most of the tube guys get them. Dugan doesn’t own them, they’re just being borrowed for the video. Normally the actual owner is right off camera.

      • Cattoo

        Thanks. I do know one but he doesn’t have that connection yet.

  • skusmc

    I didn’t know the Ultimax was designed by Jim Solving for the State of Oregon Army! Just knowing that makes Oregon seem cooler.

  • Riot

    Damn tank sounds like its laughing at the end
