One of the most popular shows on Cable Television, the History Channel’s Pawn Stars, is raising eyebrows once again.

Sources close to FOX411 out of Las Vegas confirm that the show (and local pawn shop institution) has purchased a missile guidance system used on F-4 Phantom fighter planes.  That purchase is 100 percent “not illegal”, according to the show’s producer.

“As far as we know, the missile is 100 percent not illegal,” "Pawn Stars" producer Brent Montgomery tells FOX411. “One time, a grenade came in and Rick was like, ‘You have to get that out of my shop right now!’ It wasn’t live, but you never know. I can’t have people thinking that they can take grenades into the shop—ballistic missiles, OK—but no grenades!” 

The Air Force lists the price at $386,000. 

Several items from the Department of Defense and other scrap from the military is available for legal purchase via live and Internet auction.
