Up close look at a very green XM-42 flammenwerfer (VIDEO)

Some people hate him, some people love him, but no matter how you feel, YouTube gun vlogger The Yankee Marshal now has an XM-42 flamethrower and gives a good brief run down on it.

We’ve talked about the XM-42, the world’s first commercially-produced flamethrower by Ion Productions, a number of times from its crowd-sourced origins to production and even talked with Chris Byars, Ion’s president and founder about their use and design.

With that being said, TYM’s video above gives a good nuts and bolts peak at the mechanics of it and why you would want one.

And seriously, you can use them on snow. Just watch the neighbor’s reaction.
