Gun Jesus Takes Us On A Tour Of Some Of His Gun Collection

Gun Jesus, AKA Ian from Forgotten Weapons, recently rolled out a video about a gun display wall from Matrix Armory and decided to spice it up a bit by taking us on a brief tour through some of his collection. So what does Gun Jesus hold dear?

He goes into detail in the above video but the ones that caught me off guard were the FAL and what appears to be a .308 AK of some variety. Ian has some rather interesting pieces on the wall and a couple that I want to get my hands on someday. The FN 49 and the CETME L both are guns that are on my list of want to shoots and maybe even own one day. The retro carbine from Troy is another one that makes me want to whip out a credit card and get to ordering, but an already AR dominated safe makes me reconsider.

Maybe one day I will have to set up my own tactical wall, but for now, they will live in the safe.

Check out Forgotten Weapons on YouTube. Ian Does a wonderful job of showing his audience some rather unique firearms.

    First, I’m not an early adopter on nearly everything.

    Second, I have a (IMO) strong sense of decorum, no homo.

    I do not like the idea of these walls for the sake of their small scale, highly proprietary nature.

    It is understood that more panels will be made in different patterns, but those wooden ones look like old den and basement paneling from the ’70s. My worry is again the small scale of the business right now, and being subjected to their supply or design choices for different panels.

    One hand, it is much nicer than pegboard. On the other (and most important), why didn’t he try to market to fields other than gun walls first? I mean deparment stores may eat this $#!t up, no?

      There have been similar systems in place in retail for some time. Just not with the specific 360 hooks for guns. I would not worry about the panels as the skin can be printed out to order at little cost. It would only get expensive if you wanted another material. Ofc the back board system is so simple you can DIY it or have most joiners whip you up replacements.

    I love the wood stocked Valmets.

    The AK you mentioned is an M76 made by Zastava. It’s chambered in 8mm Mauser and has that distinctive stock that almost looks like a sporter stock.

    It was good to see Ian sort of reached his 7.62x39bren dream.

  • jae34

    Is that a Type 38 or 99 on Ian’s wall? Converted Bren gun taking center place is neat.
