By now, you have all seen the video alleging that this guy who proports in the video to own “Moonlight Industries” and has a contract with “SEAL Team 6.” The video is supposedly of a cop and an ATF agent who came to his door, asking for him to turn in his forced reset triggers. If you haven’t seen it yet, here it is:

This video? It’s fake. That woman is not an ATF agent. Let me show you how I know. Look closely at her body armor:

What does the plate in that carrier look like? It’s a fucking AR500 metal target, just like this one:

Real ATF agents in body armor look like this:

Note that the ATF can afford real plates for their body armor and don’t need to use a $12 target in place of it. The guy with her? His chest rig is bullshit, too. These aren’t cops, or ATF, or any of that. That leaves two possibilities:

  • The guy in the video who claims to be the owner of the FRTs is being punked, or
  • he is the one doing the punking.

So why is this being faked? Your guesses below in comments:

WOW, excellent eye.

Agreed. Looks totally fake, a look at the website shows they make chest rigs only. He now sells a T-shirt with surprise, surprise a gong on it. Posted the video 3 days ago and then right after t-shirts, marketing at it’s finest.

Whoever the business owner is, he’s gotten a lot of free advertising and probably generated sales.

All the optics are off on this video and it feels more like a hoax than reality as if the ATF KNEW someone had the FRT triggers, they’d go judge shopping, find an anti judge who’d sign a search warrant, and do their typical 8 hour long invasion of privacy and maybe shoot a dog while they’re at it.

Nothing specific here, and I don’t have a good enough eye to have spotted that, but my old first sergeant suspicion hairs went up on the back of my neck. The whole thing hit me as an “Ah dunn nooo” !

I find the ATF response off, seceral news outlets have asked about it and gotten responses of ‘go look at our website’. You would think they would just say its a fake and no ATF agents were involvedin this.

Nice catch.
Esp. the AR500 “chest plate”.

It looked “off” to me when I first watched it. Neither of the “agents” appeared to be believable. Good catch on the fake body armor.
