Dillon M134D Gatling Gun
The Dillon Aero M134D is an electrically powered, six
barreled, Gatling gun capable of fixed firing rates of either
3,000 or 4,000 shots per minute. It can be powered by AC
or DC power sources. The weapon is chambered in 7.62
MM NATO with magazines available in 1500, 3000 or 4400
round capacities. The M134D is a modular system, allow-
ing easy adaptation to any existing platform. This flexibility
allows it to perform equally well in the fixed-forward fire or
crew served mode. It is simple to load and easy to main-
tain. With an average of 30,000 rounds between stoppag-
es, the Dillon M134D is one of the most reliable weapons
in the world.
The standard Dillon Gatling gun fires 3,000 shots per
minute. That equals 50 shots per second. No other 7.62
MM weapon comes close to this rate of fire. Why is shoot-
ing fast important? Because only fast guns such as the
M134D can achieve the extreme shot density needed to
suppress multiple targets in compressed periods of time.
More importantly, fast guns are more accurate than
slower firing weapons. There are two reasons for this and
both are a result of the high cyclic rate. First, Gatling guns
experience virtually no recoil. The M134D fires 50 shots
per second, meaning there is 1/50th of a second between
each shot. Because the time between shots is so short the
M134D, on a properly engineered mount, simply moves
aft with the first shot with no tendency to pitch up or yaw.
This makes the weapon far more stable and easier to aim.
Secondly, in the time it takes to fire one round from an
M-240, four rounds are fired from the Gatling gunthis
makes for very dense shot grouping. This also means that
with four times the number of impacts in the target area,
there is a four-fold reduction in the amount of time it takes
for a gunner to see his hits and adjust his aim.
Additionally, fast guns are more accurate when it comes
to reduced error correction. When a gunner fires on a tar-
get, he must see the impacts to know exactly where the
gun is aiming. As the amount of time between each impact
increases, the amount of error caused by target movement
or gun movement also increases. The amount of error can
grow quite large due to helicopter movement, gun move-
ment, and target movement. As the range to the target
increase to 100 meters or more, the problem becomes
severe. However, by increasing the number shots per sec-
ond, the amount of time between each observed impact is
greatly reduced.
But just how much more accurate is the M134D? Four
times the number of shots should equal four times the
number of hits, right? Wrong. Surprisingly, the M134D is,
on average, nine times more likely to score hits. This is
true because of the combined effects of high rate of fire,
extremely dense shot grouping, and high weapon stability.
Since Gatling guns are more effective and more reliable
than conventional gas operated guns, fewer weapons are
required to cover a target area. Fewer guns mean fewer
bodies to man them and fewer platforms to support them.
This translates into big cost savings.
The Dillon M134D is a true force multiplier.
On land the M134D is currently deployed worldwide for
convoy escort, border patrol, and VIP protection. In the
naval role Gatling guns are employed in the force protec-
tion role on board the US and Royal Navy blue water fleet,
and as fire support weapons on Special Operations boats.
However, it is in the helicopter that the M134D is most
often found. It is used throughout the world, on board the
Bell UH-1, Bell-212, Bell-412, AH-6, H-60, H-47, and H-53.
The M134D, or component systems, are currently
employed by the US Army, US Navy, US Marine Corps,
US Air Force, the United Kingdom, Bahrain, Jordan, and
Colombia.

tion M134D Gatling Guns. Dillon also offers Service Life

DAFD2000-1 Feeder/Delinker
P/N: DAFD2000-1
NSN: 1005-01-490-9689
The DAFD2000-1 Feeder/Delinker is the single
most important upgrade to any GAU-2B/M134. Its
function is to delink ammunition, then feed it to
the gun. On General Electric Miniguns this job was
performed by the MAU-56. While similar in appear-
ance to the Dillon Feeder/Delinker, the MAU-56 suf-
fers from several shortcomings, making the system
susceptible to failure. In fact, failures encountered
during the normal operation of the MAU-56 often
lead to a complete overhaul.
In contrast, the Dillon DAFD2000-1 Feeder/
Delinker is extremely reliable. The unit has a
mean-time-between-failure of 500,000 rounds.
Delinker stoppages are also rare. This is due in
part to the high strength of internal construction
and the way in which the Dillon Feeder/Delinker
retains lubricant while channeling dirt and debris,
which can cause a stoppage.
In the unlikely event of a stoppage, the Dillon
Feeder/Delinker is equipped with unique twin
hatches. These hatches simplify stoppage clear-
ance, a process that takes less than a minute.
Because the MAU-56 has no hatches allowing
internal access, stoppages often require between
10-20 minutes to clear, and can leave the unit
unserviceable.

DAC3000 Clutch Assembly
P/N: DAC3000
NSN: 1005-01-493-7249
Dillons DAC3000 Clutch Assembly is integral to the
operation of the Dillon Feeder/Delinker. Its function is to
control the engagement/disengagement of the Delinker in
time with the gun.
The DAC3000 also ensures the weapon is clear of live
ammunition each time the trigger is released. When the
gun trigger is pressed, power is delivered to the gun and
to the clutch. The clutch then engages the delinker drive
gear, causing the delinker to feed ammunition to the gun.
When the trigger is released, power is first removed from
the clutch, which disengages the delinker, stopping the
flow of ammunition. A time delay relay continues to turn
the gun barrels until the six remaining rounds are fired.
In this way the M134D is always free of live ammunition.
Also, since there is no live ammunition in the chambers
after firing, the M134D is not susceptible to accidental
discharges resulting from cook-offs.

Earlier generation gun control units or fire control
units came in a variety of shapes and sizes, though
they typically shared certain characteristics. These sys-
tems tended to be large, heavy, and overly complex.
Some GCUs, consisting of multiple black boxes, could
weigh more than 20 pounds. Designed with sensitive
electronics, they could easily burn-up, leaving a gun
unable to fire.
Complexity was another serious shortcoming. In the
event of a failure, it was unlikely that the unit could
be returned to service with a trip to depot level main-
tenance. Typically, unit replacement cost was always
high, and the sensitive nature of these early systems
meant a large number of spares were necessary.
Dillon Aeros Gun Control Unit is a simple, yet highly
robust system. The GCU controls all of the weap-
ons functions. When either of the twin triggers are
depressed the GCU performs a number of functions:
1. Power is delivered to the Gun Drive Motor.
2. Power is delivered to the Clutch, which in turn
engages the Feeder/Delinker system.
3. Power is delivered to the ammunition Booster
Motor.
4. The Time Delay Circuit is energized.
The Time Delay Circuit
When the GCU trigger is released, power is removed
from the weapon. The DAC3000 Clutch disengages and
the flow of ammunition to the gun is interrupted. After
the Clutch disengages the Time Delay Circuit contin-
ues to supply power to the gun motor long enough to
ensure that all remaining live rounds have been fired.
There are no live rounds left in the gun.
Dillon Spade Grips are specifically designed for the
Dillon GCU. The Spade Grips bolt directly to the gun
housing providing a stable gun interface.

age resistant. Three connectors carry power from the

DA1000 Bolt Assembly
Included in the SLE kit are six Dillon DA1000
Gun Bolts. Together with six Dillon improved bolt
tracks, the DA1000s form a complete Gun Bolt set.
It is necessary to replace the General Electric
bolts for a couple of reasons. Firing pins found
in GE bolts have blunt tips. Blunt tips can punc-
ture the primer of a cartridge during the firing
sequence. When this happens a portion of the hot
gas is vented passed the firing pin and through the
bolt. This has two effects. The first is to cause the
firing pin to compress the firing pin spring rearward
against the firing pin retention pin. If this happens
enough times the firing pin spring will lose temper,
which leads to light firing pin strikes on primers.
These light strikes may contain insufficient energy
to fire the cartridge.
The second effect of gas venting is to etch the
tip of the firing pin. The more the firing pin tip is
damaged the more likely it is to puncture larger
holes in the primer. At a certain point enough gas
is vented into the bolt body that the bolt head
retention pin may actually be sheared into three
pieces, leading to catastrophic bolt failure.
To solve these and other problems, Dillon pat-
ented an entirely redesigned gun bolt for use in the
Dillon M134D. This bolt, the DA1000, is completely
compatible with the General Electric GAU-2B/M134.
Dillon Aeros Bolts are amazingly strong and
reliable. The firing pin tip is rounded, not blunt,
to avoid primer puncture. In firing tests totaling
well over one million rounds, Dillon Bolts did not
puncture a single primer. Because of this, Dillon
springs last fifteen times as long as GE springs.
Other improvements include dual, opposed
guidance tangs that drive the bolt head into and
out of the locked position. This is compared to the
single tang GE bolt head which was susceptible to
cracking.
Also, bolt searing is simpler and more reliable.
GE bolts have a boss on the rear end of the firing
pin that engages a track in the gun rotor. With
Dillon Bolts the sear is contained within the Bolt
Head and is triggered by Bolt compression. This
feature makes rotor design less complex and less
expensive.
Bolts are sold as complete units and have no
need for individual maintenance beyond normal
cleaning and inspection. In fact, a single set of
Dillon Bolts has been fired to 375,000 rounds
without replacing any parts, including springs.
Currently in Service with US and foreign
military.
Service life of 200,000 rounds.
Dillon bolts require no maintenance aside from
normal lubrication and inspection.
Dillon Firing Pins are internally seared so there
is no interface between the firing pin and rotor.
Dillon Bolts are designed to prevent off-
center firing pin strikes.
Dillon Firing Pins have spherical ends which
eliminate punctured primers.
Dillon springs are engineered to last beyond
200,000 rounds.

Top Cover/Safng Sector Assemblies
Dillon Aeros innovations on the M134D Top
Cover and Safing Sector greatly increased the
guns safety of operation. With the old system, it
was necessary for the user to remove five parts
off the gun in order to ensure that all chambers
were clear of ammunition and safe the gun. Not
only was this time consuming, but these parts
were subject to loss as well. With the Dillon Aero
system, the user has only to release two spring
loaded latches and pivot the Top Cover/Safing
Sector to the safe position. This takes three
seconds, produces no loose parts, and no tools are
required.
Currently in service with US and foreign
military.
Dillon designed Top Cover/Safing Sector
provides rapid and certain method of safing
the gun.

Ammunition Magazines for Air, Land, and Sea
Dillon offers a wide range of high capacity
magazines for the M134 Gatling Gun, ranging in
size from 1,500 rounds to 4,400 rounds capacity.
Additionally, Dillon offers a new 500 round maga-
zine for the M60 and M240/MAG, as well as a 750
round magazine for the M249.
Large capacity magazines have been a tradi-
tional source of weapon malfunctions. Dillon Aero
has invested considerable resources into solving
this problem. The result is Dillons line of jam free
ammunition magazines. They are surprisingly sim-
ple in design, easy to load, and highly resistant to
jamming. Each magazine is divided into two com-
partments creating twin ammunition bays. Each
bay is divided with a single half-height baffle or,
one half-height baffle and two smaller sub baffles.
These baffles serve to control the ammunition, pre-
venting the tucking and cartridge interlocking that
is the cause of most magazine jams.
Not only does this simple design radically reduce
magazine induced gun jams, it also makes maga-
zine loading very fast and easy. Loading is accom-
plished by laying a continuous belt of ammunition
from end to end, across the baffle. When the first
bay is full, the belt is fed into the crossover section
of the magazine and then into the second bay. In
this way a standard 4,400 round magazine can be
readied for action in less than four minutes.
Dillon ammunition magazines are currently in
service with the US Air Force, Army, Navy, and
Marine Corps, and are deployed in the air, on land,
and at sea. Additionally, Dillon magazines have
been adopted by numerous foreign services.
Dillons unique design radically reduces the
likely hood of magazine induced jams and
stoppages.
Simple internal structure facilitates quick load-
ing process.

Round Repositioner
All ammunition must travel to the battle-
field. That travel is hard on linked ammunition.
Vibration caused by the continuous shaking of
rough roads or mishandling can cause belted
rounds to shift in the links. These are referred
to as mislinked rounds and they are a common
source of weapon malfunction.
When a round shifts, becoming mislinked, it
moves out of alignment (either for or aft) in rela-
tion to the other rounds in the belt. Consequently,
that belt becomes too wide to enter either a feed
chute, if one is being used, or the feed port on the
weapon itself. The result is a feed stoppage, the
cause of which usually going undetermined.
Like all belt-fed weapons, the M134s feed
system is sensitive to mislinked ammunition. To
combat mislinked rounds, a Round Repositioner is
installed at the magazines exit. The inside of the
Round Repositioner is shaped like a funnel allowing
it to reposition any round not properly linked prior
to entering the feed chute.

Dillon makes three External Beam Mounts for the
UH-1 series utility helicopters. These simple, light
weight plug and play designs allow for a variety of
installation options depending on aircraft confgura-
tion. These mounts pick up factory installed hard
points on the belly of the aircraft. They consist of
two main support arms, cross beam, and between
one and three vertical post positions. Installation
can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. The
post pintle is a standard 2.25-inch and accepts the
Dillon Vertical Arm.
Dillon UH-1 mounts are in service now and have
had millions of rounds expended on them.

The Dillon Black Hawk mount is a Form and
Function copy of the General Dynamics window
mount with two signifcant differences. The frst is
weight. The Dillon mount is made of Titanium and
weighs 22.9 Pounds. This is nearly one half of the
GD mount which weighs 41.8 pounds.
The second difference is the use of the Dillon
Vertical Arm in place of the GD vertical arm. When
General Dynamics designed its vertical arm, M134s
did not use fash suppressors. When fash suppres-
sors were adopted the accuracy of the GD mount
was compromised. The reason for this is that the
inside wall of the fash suppressor nearest the fring
barrel is acted upon by the gas exiting the muzzle.
This action tends to drive the barrel off target. The
Dillon Vertical Arm was designed with fash suppres-
sors in mind. The result is a much more accurate
weapon installation that does not fght the operator.
The Dillon M134D Black Hawk window mount
attaches to either the left or right window station
behind the cockpit. The mount will except either an
M134 or an M240 and will allow either weapon to be
stowed internally or extended for combat.

The Dillon Chinook mount is a recreation of the
General Dynamics mount with the only change be-
ing a reduction of 5 pounds from the total weight.
The mount is a bi-fold design which occupies either
the right side window or the left side doorway. Its
design allows for quick removal and stowing in the
event the window or door is needed for egress or
ingress. The post pintle is a standard 2.25-inch
and accepts the Dillon Vertical Arm.
The Dillon Chinook Weapon Mount is now in ser-
vice with the US Army.

M-240 Mount
Dillons line of gun mounts is not limited to the
M134. A lightweight, universal gun mount is also
available for the M-240. The Universal gun mount
shares the excellent handling characteristic of the
M134 mount, and it is designed to be completely
compatible with the M134 Vertical Arm.
This means that any platform equipped for the
M134 system, can, in a matter of seconds, be
equipped for the M-240.
The Dillon M-240 mount can be fed from either
the standard 200 round ammunition can, or Dillons
DAB500 ammunition magazine. The DAB500 holds
500 rounds of 7.62 millimeter ammunition. The
500 round capacity greatly reduces the gunners
need to change magazines, thus reducing dropped
magazines, gun down-time, and aircraft exposure.
Dillon M-240 mounts and high capacity
magazines are currently used by the US Army in
both ground and aviation applications.

For naval applications, the installation utilizes the
MK16 Naval Post Mount. The post mount is simple,
sturdy, and requires only 2 by 2 of deck or truck
bed space, which means it can be installed just
about anywhere.
The pintle of the Naval Post Mount is a standard
2.25-inch diameter pintle making this mount
entirely compatible with the Dillon Vertical Arm.
The Naval Post Mount M134 is currently in
service in the Force Protection role on board US
Naval vessels and vessels of allied nations.
In the small boat arena, M134s are used by
special operations forces aboard fast attack craft
and RHIBS in the fre support role.

The Yoke is a Y shaped casting that bolts directly to
the Gatling Guns Housing. The Yoke axle plugs into the
Vertical Arm and provides the gun with its pitch axis.
Built in mounting surfaces allow for the use of any
type of gun sight or IR laser.
Our universal yoke is compatible with all Dillon Aero
mounts. Gun traverse stops are user specific.

VERTICAL ARM
The Vertical Arm is a short vertical post which
provides the M134 with its horizontal axis of
rotation. It is fully compatible with the entire line
of Dillon mounts. As with Dillons helicopter gun
mounts, the Vertical Arm for helicopter operators
is designed to meet the US Air Forces strict
20/20/10 g loading criteria and is available in
steel or titanium.
At the top of the Vertical Arm is the Yoke
socket. The yoke is secured in the socket
by means of a quick release pin. This allows
the gun to be mounted to the Vertical Arm in
seconds. The Yoke socket is lined with an oil-
light bushing. The use of oil-light bushings helps
to prevent galling, common in other mounts, and
ensures long part life and easy repairability.
Another advantage of using the Dillon Vertical
Arm is that it is fully compatible with the Dillon
M-240 gun cradle, allowing operators to switch
seamlessly between the M134 and the M-240,
depending on mission requirements.
