A man who police say is a member of the Rebels motorcycle gang is facing serious drug charges after the discovery of a clandestine lab in Adelaide's north.

Detectives from Operation Avatar raided the house in Modbury North overnight and allegedly discovered a drug lab and drug making equipment throughout the property.

A 37-year-old Kangaroo Island man and the home's 33-year-old owner are facing drug manufacturing charges.

The home owner is allegedly a member of the Rebels motorcycle club.

Detective Inspector Damian Powell says equipment allegedly used to make methamphetamines and other drugs, along with cannabis plants and a gun have been seized.

"I guess the thing that sets this one apart is that it's clear that this is an ongoing commercial enterprise and at a level that is significantly higher than a lot of other labs that we've located," he said.

Police will spend most of today dismantling the lab.
