SHOT Show 23 – Radical Defense XR338

Radical Defense featured a static display of their new XR338, a suppressed mini-gun in .338 Norma Mag.

The XR338 can be fired in suppressed (72 lbs) or unsuppressed (66 lbs) mode at variable firing rates between 800 to 2500 rounds per minute.

For those of you doing the math, it could run you over $15,000 a minute to feed this beast. However, with 47.5% parts compatibility with an M134, you can save some cash on PLL.

    I have had the privilege of hearing what a suppressed minigun sounds like. It’s still very loud close up, but you instantly appreciate the confusion it would create 1000yds downrange for a target when the air suddenly comes alive with closely spaced supersonic cracks coming for what sounds like every direction.

    Considering this thing could stretch easily to 2000yds and maybe a bit beyond, I can only imagine.

    Of course, the plume of steam, coming up from the cooling effects of the firehose directed at the suppressor, might give your position away! Otherwise, way cool, so it will never be adopted.

    $15k/minute…In my head I hear Tevye singing “If I were a rich man..”!
    That is still awesome and I need one for … reasons.

      You gave me a good laugh. Big tall houses with rooms by the dozen and stairways leading to nowhere aren’t complete unless they come with a suppressed mini-gun in .338 Norma Mag.
