The Dillon Aero Bullet Trap is an external safety device intended for operation during gun maintenance, hot-gun clearing, or at any point when the weapon may be armed but not in use. It is designed specifically to fit legacy and current M134 production barrel clamps.

This compact safety enhancement system utilizes Concept Development Corporation’s patented Ballistic Media System, which has been independently tested by the U.S. Department of Energy, the FBI, and Sandia Laboratories. It has proven effective in stopping armor-piercing projectiles fired at contact distances from 5.56mm, 7.62mm, and .50 BMG weapons.

The body of the bullet trap encloses a self-sealing rubber “plug,” which contains the ballistic media. It literally shreds the projectile, causing disintegration upon impact. Dillon Aero’s testing consisted of firing 27 rounds of 7.62mm into the trap, resulting in complete containment. The Bullet Trap offers quick and simple usage, and provides the maximum level of safety for maintenance personnel, vehicle or air crew. This low-cost safety enhancement system is rapidly gaining acceptance within U.S. and allied Armed Services.
