Dillon M134 Firing 3000 Rounds at 1000 Meters

Via Cousin John

The Dillon M134D Gatling Gun is the finest small caliber, defense suppression weapon available. It is a six barreled, electrically driven machine gun chambered in 7.62mm NATO and fires at a fixed rate of 3,000 shots per minute. Gatling Guns typically feed from a 3,000 or 4,000 round magazine. They are capable of long periods of continuous fire without threat or damage to the weapon making them an excellent choice for defensive suppression.

Dillon Guns are reliable. The M134D has system life in excess of 1,500,000 rounds and an average time between stoppage greater than 30,000 rounds. In the unlikely event of a stoppage the weapon can be serviced and made operational again in under one minute. The multi barrel design means that each barrel only experiences a 500 round per minute rate of fire. This allows for repeated long bursts of fire and a barrel group life of 200,000 rounds.

Dillon Gatling Guns are in service with the US and Allied Armed Forces. The standard application is as helicopter crew served and fixed forward fire installations. In addition to their more traditional roles, Dillon Gatlings are supplanting M2 50 cal. Heavy Machine Guns and M240’s on a number of the US Army’s vehicles. Dillon M134s are also in service with the US and British navies in the fleet protection role and Special Operations fire support role.

Dillon M134 Gatling Guns are entirely new production weapons. Dillon guns are sold as complete weapon systems or as component upgrade packages for older GE M134 systems.

  1. LOL holy shit - how inaccurate is that thing? What'd they hit it 25 times in all that? :)

    I wish image links would display the pic instead of having to have to click it but - THIS:

    1. :) I couldn't tell if they hit the target. You'd think they would have a closeup at the end.

  2. That would be a riot, but I never thought I would hear myself say this but it almost looked boring. I shot a M249 SAW and that looked that would have been more fun. LOL

    1. :) Reminds me of a story from the Eastern Front in WWII when German machine gunners grew tired of mowing down the charging forces. This was at a time when Stain was throwing every person possible at the Germans, trained or not, armed or not, to buy time.
