We may never know just how many SAKs were kicking around the set of the MacGyver TV show, but thanks to dedicated SOSAK member DrummerBMac, we now know what model(s) were used in each episode!  Ben made the ultimate sacrifice of sitting through every episode for hours on end, replaying the DVD's over and over again until he managed to compile this list, which will soon be moved to

A special thanks to Ben for his efforts in going the distance for his fellow SOSAK members!
