Dual Wielding Flamethrowers

My friend Andrew at GY6vids got his hands on two XM42 Flamethrowers….

The XM42 project received $157,485 in funding from IndiGoGo backers in April and is now on sale for $899. It runs off regular gasoline in an unpressurized tank. An battery powered electric fuel pump sprays it out the gas which is ignited by a butane pilot torch.

A youtuber, JJCC, wrote this comment on the video …

(·3·) Perfect for removing bushes, small trees, and annoying people who ask you why their fence is on flames

The only thing missing from the XM42 is the ability to mount if under an AR-15.
