The official Youtube channel for Navy Arms, Gibbs Rifle and Old Western Scrounger. Navy Arms is the oldest brand in 18th and 19th Century replica firearms and was founded by Val Forgett, Jr., the "Father of the Replica Firearms Industry". Mr. Forgett was also a prominent international arms dealer and firearms collector. His son, Val Forgett III, founded Gibbs Rifle in 1991 to import military surplus firearms and make replicas of 20th Century military arms. When Val, Jr. passed away in 2002, Val III merged both companies in Martinsburg, West Virginia. In 2005 Val III acquired Old Western Scrounger from "Dangerous Dave" Cumberland. Dave founded OWS to make and sell obsolete and hard to find ammo calibers. Val III expanded that line and also made OWS an internet sales site for the ammo and other cool military guns and collectables. All three are now owned and run by Val III in Martinsburg, West Virginia, each offering different eras of cool firearms, ammo and accessories.
