Master Of Arms

DISCOVERY TO PREMIERE ALL-NEW COMPETITION SERIES ‘MASTER OF ARMS’

Premieres Friday, November 2 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel

(LOS ANGELES) – Over the course of history, skilled craftsmen helped shape the fate of mankind by constructing the most iconic weaponry known to man. Inspired by age-old traditions, Discovery Channel is gathering the best builders to battle it out in a head-to-head competition to re-create the armaments that have changed the course of history. MASTER OF ARMS premieres Friday, November 2 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery.

Centuries ago, the greatest empires leaned on the backs of weapon craftsmen to create the blades, bows and ballistics that would win wars and alter history forever. Now, modern weapons smiths will put their technical knowledge and ingenuity to the test giving insight into age-old building techniques — and the traditions, methods and craftsmanship that define them.

Each episode, three builders will face-off in two historical challenges that call upon era-specific weaponry, from the firearms of the frontier to the blades of the Vikings. But these aren’t just quickly fabricated weapons – each tool will be heavily researched and crafted pieces of art.

Weapons will be tested by a decorated military marksman and judged by three experts:

Ashley Hlebinsky, one of the leading firearms historians in the country. Ashley has dedicated her life and career to the study of weaponry. She is currently the Chief Curator of one of the largest firearms collections in the country, the Cody Firearms Museum, in Wyoming.

Nicholas Irving, a former Sergeant within the Special Operations unit, 75th Ranger Regiment 3rd Ranger battalion, served as an assaulter, machine gunner, designated marksman and sniper. He is also The New York Timesbestselling author of The ReaperWay of the Reaper andReaper: Ghost Target.

Zeke Stout, a certified firearms specialist. He has served as an executive at one of the largest firearms, technology, and gunsmithing schools in the country. In that role, he was certified as a higher education professional in leadership, an Armorer in several platforms, including the 1911 and Penn arms grenade launcher.

Trenton Tye, a professional blacksmith with over 20 years’ experience. His specialties include casting, gunsmithing, knife making, and ancient arms and armor.

In each episode, blade, ballistic and bow weapons will be rigorously tested as well as judged on their design, historical accuracy, and abilities.  With an elimination after each challenge, only one smith will walk away with the grand prize of $10,000 and be crowned the “Master of Arms.”

Chris was dedicated to his career, but first and foremost he was a family man. He loved fishing with his son Travis, 33, hunting with his daughter Erin, 27, walking with his golden retriever Shadow, going to baseball games, spending time as “Pop-pop” with his grandchildren, and sharing his life with Terri, his wife, along with his many other family members and friends.

Lanxang Tactical

Lanxang Tactical's owners fled the communist revolution of Laos and found their way to the states in the late 70’s. They started with nothing, and now own their own machine shop, having worked as technicians and machinists in the aerospace industry for years. Their belief that a society can and should defend itself from a predatory and oppressive government is based in hard experience, and led them to begin the process of making superior firearms. The name Lanxang came about as a tribute to one of the owners’ warrior heritage. It translates from Laotian as “one million elephants,” a phrase that related the military dominance of the ancient kingdom. Naturally, they liked the elephant as a symbol and it looked damn good on the rifle. Lanxang is 100% American owned and operated, their products are designed, manufactured and assembled in Conyers, Georgia, USA.

The Killer Man

SSG(RET) Paul Martinez former Army Ranger Sniper, Sniper Instructor,  Author, Cattleman and Veterans Advocate drops by the "Leadquarters" to talk about his book When the Killer Man Comes: Eliminating Terrorists As a Special Operations Sniper

America has one force with the single mission of direct action to capture or kill the enemy. That force is the 75th Ranger Regiment. Staff Sergeant Paul Martinez was a Ranger Sniper with the 75th Rangers during the desperate fighting in Afghanistan in 2011 when the United States made the decision to try to withdraw from Afghanistan.

Paul Martinez was one of the deadliest snipers assigned to this unit, dubbed “Team Merrill,” after the Marauders of World War II fame. Martinez and his fellow Rangers faced near-impossible odds taking on an enemy who knew they were coming and who employed every conceivable tactic to kill these Rangers. In When the Killer Man Comes, Martinez tells the harrowing true story of how he and his team hunted America's enemies in an operation that would have repercussions that are still felt today.
