M134 Minigun meaning and definition

M134 Minigun meaning

Also known as the "Vulcan" Minigun. The m134 is somewhat of a portable version of the Gatling gun, hence the "Mini" prefix. It shoots around 50 rounds per second through a rotary barrel system. Comparable to a washing machine in that, while it takes a bit of build-up (about 1.5 seconds) once its going, it will clean up quickly (and argueably efficiantly.)

M14 meaning

A beautiful, powerful rifle, based on the classic M1 .30-06 "Garand." In its standard form, it has wooden furnishings, peep hole sights, a 22" barrel, a .308 Winchester (7.62x51mm) bore, and 20-round magazines. It uses a gas-diversion system, with a rotating bolt, which has two locking lugs. While it featured a fully-automatic function, this was generally not used, due to the muzzle deviation produced by the recoil, which lent to user inaccuracies. In its semi-automatic fire mode, however, it is a very accurate weapon, even without an accurized barrel. Modern variants include the M21, M25, and M14 DMR (Designated Marksmans' Rifle), all of which are still in use by the United States' Army and Marine Corps. All of the above are strictly semi-automatic, outfitted with scopes, accurized barrels, match-grade sights, improved triggers, and generally include synthetic furnishings. Some even have picatinny and fore grip rails. There are also civilian versions, called the M1A, by the privately-owned Springfield Armory, which has no connections to the government-run firearms maker, which was shutdown in 1968, by the DoD.

m15m meaning

"Movies in Fifteen Minutes" A series of movie parodies in which major motion pictures are boiled down to fifteen minutes. It was first conceived on personal Livejournal, then moved to a Livejournal community, and finally culminated in a published book by the same name. m15m parodies are written all in fun, and always out of love for the movies.

M16 meaning

The US service rifle in use since 1965. The M16's original design proved to be jam prone (complicated by poor ammunition and improper cleaning instruction) and was superceded by the M16A1. The M16A1 was a fully automatic rifle with a chrome lined barrel for increased reliability. The M16A2 was the next major model which had an improved sight, the optional addition of a brass deflector for left-handed shooters a 7-in-1 rifiling, and, most notibly, a three-round burst limiter. The next model of the M16 (the M16A3 or M16A4 I cannot find reliable sources on either even Colt) eschews the burst limiter and adds a P-rail inplace of the handgrip.

M16A1 meaning

The standard-issue rifle for U.S. Servicemen in Vietnam. Designed by Eugene Stoner as the Ar-15 to replace the M14 (which was difficult to control while in full-auto). The rifle fired .223 caliber ammunition, which later became the 5.56 mm NATO round in widespread use today. The M16A1 "spawned" the current U.S. service rifle, the M16A2, as well as the A3 (full-auto A2), and the M4 Carbine, which is in use by Special Forces units around the world.
