Title: BARREL CLAMP
Abstract:
A barrel clamp (20) for a Gatling-style firearm, or mini-gun, provides vanes (240) for the direction of fresh air currents into the muzzle area of the firearm. The directed air streams contribute to cooling the barrels (10) while in the firing cycle and also towards the disruption of fuel-rich gasses around the barrel muzzles (12) which contribute to muzzle flash.
