COLT C6 GENERAL-PURPOSE MACHINE-GUN STORAGE
Storing one of the most critical weapons in a small arms unit. One of the most versatile weapons requires the most versatile storage systems.View PDF Version
Dasco Storage Solutions has designed and built a variety of storage systems for the Colt C6 machine gun over the last 20 years. The Colt C6 General Purpose Machine Gun (GPMG) is used in many situations, including mounted on armoured vehicles for patrol operations or carried as a core weapon for dismounted operations. No matter the application – land, sea or air – Dasco has a storage solution for the Colt Canada C6A1.
Canadian C6 Machine Gun Storage Requirements
The standard-issue C6 medium machine gun introduced in 1976:
- 11.8 kilograms
- 126 cm overall length
- 63 cm barrel length
Common Colt C6A1 machine gun accessories:
- Folding bipod
- 360° tripod
With nearly 1200 new C6A1 machine guns introduced to the Canadian military in 2019, there is a need to store them across the country. Due to these being a heavier support weapon, units typically only have 1-2 per team. This means that C6 GPMGs are typically stored in slightly smaller cabinets with their accessories – or in a storage rack containing other service weapons. We have a storage solution for every military storage application.
DASCO'S STORAGE SOLUTION
Dasco has designed many storage systems specifically for the Colt Canada C6 and C6A1 machine gun.
Restricted-Access Colt Canada C6 Storage
We have a variety of storage racks and cabinets that can restrict access to C6 machine guns. If your machine guns need to be stored behind lock and key, consider our Bi-Fold Weapon Racks, Stackable Weapon Racks, Weapon Lockers and our Weapon Storage Cabinets. These solutions come in a variety of sizes that let you store one or more C6A1s. Customize your storage system with components designed for C6A1 machine guns and their accessories.
Open-Access Colt C6 Storage in Canada
Amourers that store their C6 machine guns in the open with easy access should consider our Expandable Weapon Racks. Expandable Weapon Racks sit on the floor and easily support the weight of the machine gun. The open system allows machine guns to be quickly deployed. These racks can be easily reconfigured to suit your equipment list and are great for storing various weapon styles, including C7 rifles, C8 carbines and more.
To make transporting the machine guns easy work, we created the Mobile Weapon Cart. The cart can hold up to 10 C6A1 machine guns – 5 guns on each side. The strong, easy-to-maneuver cart is great for moving your machine guns around the armoury, ship or hangar.
The Canadian military relies on Dasco Storage Solutions for their C6 machine gun storage across Canada.
High-Density Colt Canada C6 Storage
We have storage solutions for units with lots of C6 machine guns and/or little room to store them. Our unique storage components let armourers pack in C6 weapons and their accessories into compact spaces. We’ve even designed components to keep spare barrels well organized and beside their weapons. If you need help storing C6 machine guns in a small footprint, contact one of our storage specialists.
Colt Canada C6 Storage Products
Almost all of our weapon storage racks can secure and organize C6 machine guns. We’ve designed our products so that every one with a universal back panel can accommodate a C6 weapon (except our Weapon Wall Panels due to weight). We’ve also designed C6-specific storage components, unlike some competitors that use the same components for every long gun.
