Apparently inconspicuous army veteran Michael 'Mike' Newbury is shot at home with a rare caliber, actually absent from the amazing weapons collection is his secret toy room & lab, yet his corpse is missing. Tracing the bullet, from a novel Belgian gun, alerts the FBI, which sends agent Viggo McQuaid and his trainee-successor Matthew Pratt. The case is largely classified as Newbury discretely traveled the world's war zones for Mark Gabriel's exclusive, Defense-contracted company. The murder weapon was part of 144 stolen in Pakistan. A removed tattoo leads to a suspect, who is actually in acute danger. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The 5.7X28mm ammunition mentioned in the episode is a caliber created by Fabrique Nationale d'Armes de Guerre-Herstal (FN Herstal) for the FN Five-seveN pistol and the FN P90 personal defense weapon. The ammunition was illegal in the United States due to its armor piercing capabilities due to use in military applications and a civilian version of the ammunition was created that didn't have this capability. The FN Five-seveN was also illegal until the expiration of the 1994 Brady Bill ban on high capacity magazines due to the pistol being only available with 20 round magazines. The FN P90 was also illegal due to the 1994 Brady Bill Assault Weapons ban. Both the FN Five-seveN and FN P90 became legal for civilian ownership upon the expiration of the 1994 Brady Bill in 2004 when the bill was not renewed. See more »


The firearms expert said that 5.7x28mm ammunition is "rare; you can't even buy these rounds in the States." This is false. This ammunition was originally designed to penetrate body armor and restricted to military and police use, but civilian-legal versions have been available in the US since 2004. See more »
