The M240 comes in 8 varieties and Dasco Storage Solutions has a system for each kind. The M240 and its medium machine gun variants have been in use for almost 45 years. It’s used in many situations, including mounted on armored 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 M240 machine gun.
M240 Machine Gun Storage Requirements
The standard-issue M240 medium machine gun introduced in 1977:

With thousands of M240s in use by all branches of the US military, there is a need to store them in armories across the country and bases around the world. Due to these being a heavier support weapon, units typically only have 1-2 per team. This means that M240s 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 M240 and its medium machine gun variants, including the:
Restricted-Access M240 Machine Gun Storage
We have a variety of storage racks and cabinets that can restrict access to M240 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 M240s. Customize your storage system with components designed for M240 machine guns and their accessories.
Open-Access M240 Storage in America
Armorers that store their M240 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 M16 rifles, M4 carbines and more.
To make transporting the machine guns easy work, we created the Mobile Weapon Cart. The cart can hold up to 10 M240 machine guns – 5 guns on each side. The strong, easy-to-maneuver cart is great for moving your machine guns around the armory, ship or hangar.
The United States military relies on Dasco Storage Solutions for their M240 machine gun storage around the world.
High-Density M240 Storage
We have storage solutions for units with lots of M240 machine guns and/or little room to store them. Our unique storage components let armorers pack M240 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 M240 machine guns in a small footprint, contact one of our storage specialists.
American M240 Storage Products
Almost all of our weapon storage racks can secure and organize M240 machine guns. We’ve designed our products so that every one with a universal back panel can accommodate a M240 weapon (except our Weapon Wall Panels due to weight). We’ve also designed M240-specific storage components, unlike some competitors that use the same components for every long gun.
