XM301

20mm Lightweight Gatling Gun

Developed as the lightest 20mm Gatling gun in the world, the XM301 20mm Gatlin gun features firing rates of 750 and 1,500 shots per minute, making it the ideal product for platforms that require air-to air and air-to-ground lethality in a lightweight package. The XM301 fires at twice the rate of the single-barrel gun of similar caliber and weight. When combined with high accuracy and an optimum dispersion pattern, the rate of fire provides superior precision-kill capability. The XM301 is also rugged enough to withstand long burst lengths without damage.

The XM301 offers the user an added level of flexibility and safety by utilizing the unique ability to interchangeably fire percussion-primed and standard electrically primed ammunition.

These factors make the XM301 a leap forward in Gatling gun accuracy, weight, maintainability and firepower.
