MAUL – MULTISHOT ACCESSORY UNDERBARREL LAUNCHER

MULTISHOT ACCESSORY UNDERBARREL LAUNCHER

The MAUL is a lightweight, modular, 12 gauge, five-shot, semi-automatic shotgun designed to deliver shotgun capabilities for lethal and non-lethal munitions. Weighing less than two pounds, MAUL is one of the lightest semi-automatic, 12 gauge weapons ever developed for its purpose. It has been designed as a modular weapon to provide shotgun capabilities in urban warfare and close quarter battles.

MAUL can be mounted as a module on a service rifle or used on its own. The combined weapon offers the warfighter a choice of 5.56 mm and 12 gauge lethal munitions, readily available in a single lightweight weapon system.

Features:

  • can be used either as a stand-alone weapon or as a module on a combat rifle
  • mounts on most military service rifles
  • allows a scaled response to any situation.
  • offers a range of less lethal munitions including blunt impact, door breaching, non lethal frangible munitions
  • Lethal munitions include buckshot and lethal slug.
MAUL provides a second barrel to use when mounted as a module on a service rifle allowing a service member to remain active in a firefight.
