Gun Mounts

Marathon Technologies Inc. specializes in developing, prototyping, as well as manufacturing gun mounting systems for the aerospace and ground equipment sectors of the defense industry. Depending on specific military vehicle requirements, we manufacture machine gun mounts suitable for use on trucks, ATVs, FMTVs, HMMWVs, GMVs, and other armored vehicles. Engineered to reduce the recoil of weapons, our machine gun mounts offer excellent firing accuracy and stability. We specialize in manufacturing MK 93, MK 64, and MK 95 models of gun mounts as well as M3, M122, and M122A models of tripods.

Our MK 93 gun cradle mounts do not require any external tools or adapters. They feature cradle assemblies, gun carriages, stop brackets, stowage bar assemblies, bolt-on pintles, and ammo can holders. Compared to bipods, our M122 tripods provide a more stable mount and superior control. The traversing and elevating (T & E) mechanism of the M122 ground mount enables soldiers to engage preselected targets in low visibility conditions.

Using a 3-D computer programming system, MTI’s design team carefully builds fully deployable solutions from custom specifications. From CNC machining and robotic welding to screw machining, our extensive manufacturing capabilities cover all aspects of product development and production. Through MIL-STD-45208A approved SPC inspections, we ensure the reliability of mounting systems and motion control units.
