In January of 2020, USS-LMT was awarded a $12.4M contract thru the Defense Logistics Agency to manufacture Recoil Mechanisms for the Navy’s 25mm, M242 Bushmaster Chain Gun.

USS-LMT has delivered 1,637 of the 3,570 production units which are targeted for completion by the end of 2021.

The recoil mechanism consists of 11 turned components, all of which are manufactured in-house.

The system’s main component required the development of a custom drilling solution to achieve a 0.005” runout over an 11” bore measuring 0.676” in diameter.
