Going for a deep dive on the vintage 'secret agent man' GyroJet rocket gun (VIDEO)

A collector of the unorthodox and borderline eccentric MB Associates GyroJet holds school on the platform that had its own cameo in a 1960s Bond film.

Sean with Really Great Gear, who happens to have several of the vintage rocket guns, touches on their peculiarities and appearance in the hands of “Tiger Tanaka” and assorted ninjas in 1967’s You Only Live Twice in the above video.

Notably, these guns even popped up in the hands of MAC-V-SOG personnel in Southeast Asia.

ICYMI, the RGG channel also recently did some in-depth test firing of these (very quiet and surprisingly effective for their age) rocket guns in conjunction with Jeff and Danny of the channel Taofledermaus.
