Paramount recently reached out to Guns & Ammo Editor Eric Poole for the opportunity to profile some of the firearms created by ISS Armory's legendary gunsmith Harry Lu and which are featured throughout The Terminator films. This exclusive, behind-the-scenes feature written by Jeremy Stafford will appear in the August 2015 issue of G&A, which will be available on newsstands July 2.
