You bump into the coolest things at SHOT
So I am in Nevada for SHOT Show and got to spend all day on the range yesterday, where I came upon this bad boy.
Arizona-based aviation and defense company Profense was showing off their PF556, a down-sized version of the M134 Mini-Gun in 5.56mm rather than the more traditional 7.62x51mm.
As the gun only weighs 38-pounds, all-up it tips the scales at 110-pounds with a 1,500-round hopper.
The electrically-driven system (48 VDC) uses a fully programmable digital GCU that uses full brushless motor control of the weapon and ammo booster, allowing an adjustable rate of fire between 600 at 4,000 rounds-per-minute at the flip of a switch.
PF says the mount can be used on vessels, ROVs, vehicles, and other applications– including remote use.
