Magnetic G has pulled another gun out of the River Soar.

After a find of two guns and a machete the previous week, a magnet fisher has found yet another firearm.

The Advertiser reported last week that George Tindale, aka YouTuber Magnetic G, had found three weapons while magnet fishing with his father, Kevin, in the River Soar, near Leicester (you can read the story here).

But in a rare occurance, last Sunday, his magnet pulled another pistol from the river.

The gun, thought to be a Pinfire Revolver 1880, was reported to Nottinghamshire Police and if it is deemed to be safe and can’t be fired, George, who lives in the Newark area, is hoping to keep it.

He said: “It’s very rare for magnet fishers to ever find a gun in a river, so for us to have found three in just a week or two is amazing.”

On top of his find of weapons, during the past year George has also found three live bombs, knives, 55 shopping trolleys, mobile phones and four motorbikes ­— one of which was reunited with its owner ­— road signs, power tools, a multitude of knives, and drug scales.
