Security Experts Claim CJNG Possesses Multiple M134 Miniguns Within its Arsenal

 "Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

The Jalisco New Generation Cartel  (CJNG) has an arsenal of up to 10 M134 machine guns nicknamed "Minigun", according to security experts, advanced weapons valued at around a quarter of a million dollars and capable of firing up to 10,000 rounds per minute.

There are two versions of how the Jalisco Cartel was able to acquire these weapons. One report points out that the criminal group was methodically importing parts from the United States to arm in Mexico, from the hand of military advisers, the multi-barrel machine guns.

The other indicates that an adviser to the cartel, a former US marine, is the one who manages the transfer of the weapons.

The Minigun is flaunted not only by the Jalisco Cartel, but also by the Gulf Cartel.

This multi-barrel weapon, operated by an electronic system, is capable of firing 10 thousand rounds per minute, on average 167 per second; the cost of one minute of operation is around 120 thousand pesos in ammunition.

These weapons are generally mounted on helicopters and military vehicles.

In the United States, this model is available for civilian use under certain requirements and not accessible in all states.

    6. The thing here most of the people cheerleading either are not Mexicans they are Americans infatuated with cartel life or Mexican Americans that have never set foot in Mexico because any paisa that really loves and has lived in Mexico and knows how it was in the old days when you can go and travel freely and feel free and safe knows you can’t do that anymore where ever cartel has presence would not be rooting for a cartel like assholes the people who sit here and root Jalisco this Sinaloa that are just keyboard warriors witting from there messy shitty smelly rooms or shitty smelly parents basement

    5. @1:37 if there was a video of some tontos riding around with a mini gun mounted on the back of a dump truck yelling, "Puras cuatro letras" or some dumb shit like that, then I'd believe it. But the article is based purely on rumors, heresy and speculation. There's no proof... but whatever, I guess. Keep believing what you want to believe.

    7. Well can anyone respond to 10:05's questions??? Or is it just attack if you don't like the question and/or don't have the answer. It's a sound question. For example, CDG had atleast one for sure and we know this cause the were caught with one acouple of years ago. And they are assumed to have more because the machinist that was making them for them was apprehended and gave that info. Now, can someone, anyone, answer this man's/woman's question??? What info/evidence is there that backs this story up??? I'm also curious to know this info. Anyone with any 411 who responds with real data and not attacks, I thank you ahead of time.

    8. It is an expensive, costly to maintain weapon. Those who know it say that its effectiveness is legendary. The guardian of the leader of the Jalisco Cartel is loyal, destructive and, in the eyes of some arms industry experts, also beautiful.

      Her alias is "La Minigun," or "The Minigun,"

      Its technical name is M134 and it is a multi-cannon gun that spits bullets so frantically that it needs an external engine and a cooler to prevent it from overheating.

      Depending on the model, an M134 can fire up to 150 rounds per second.

      In other words, 10 seconds of use can cost up to 20,000 pesos in spent ammunition alone.

      One minute can cost about 120,000 pesos in bullets.

      Because of their high cost and specialized maneuvering, only two types of groups possess them: governments and cartels.

      they acquire them because they are a guarantee of a withering attack that penetrates almost any armor: a few seconds with the trigger at the bottom can eliminate entire regiments.

      In February 2017, military-held M134s fired from the sky at several Gulf Cartel safe houses in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, instantly killing men in civilian clothes.

      That same month they used it again in Tepic, Nayarit, surprising the Beltr谩n Leyva clan and instantly killing their lieutenant, Francisco Patr贸n S谩nchez, alias "El H2", who was unable to repel the aerial attack.

      In 2019, Rolling Stone magazine published a report claiming that, following the 2017 airstrikes, officials in Austin, Texas, and the US Department of Homeland Security learned that the Gulf Cartel showed interest in acquiring several smuggled M134s.

      That investigation published by journalist Seth Harp includes an extensive interview with a retired police officer who bought spare parts to assemble up to four M134s for an arms dealer who smuggled them into Mexico and sold them to the cartels.

      And this is precisely how the DEA believes "El Mencho" has gotten his hands on several M134s: piece by piece, almost screw by screw, he has slowly introduced pieces of the prized "Minigun" from the United States to Mexico and his contacts have assembled them on national soil.

      Two DEA agents who monitor the million-dollar US-MX arms trafficking business say they have reason to believe that the founder of the CJNG has between one and ten M134s.

      And that his version is much more dangerous than the original for civilians, police and military.

      The "Minigun" of the "jaliscos" would be more compact, a little lighter, but just as deadly, modified to be used not only from the air in a helicopter, but from Technicals, known as monsters, that protect the cartel's main strongholds.

      That's his feared bodyguard. Expensive, angry, potentially genocidal. Lethal to security forces.

      The "mini-gun" that the Jalisco Cartel would have brought to Mexico as the new protector of its leader.

  3. These guns were reported on this site a couple of years back. A retired man in Southern Texas was approached by a "straw" buyer from Dallas. He built the gun, and it was smuggled into Mexico. This is a serious gun, similar to a laser but with real bullets. Imagine the ammo per second/minute/hour. Taking these guns out would be a big chore. These guns give the cartels the audacity to say bring it on. Whether plane, infantry or drones, it will cut a vicious line. The man in S. Texas needed the money. He thought he was providing a weapon to an arms afficiando, little did he know it was a frontman. Shit

  17. I cant speak for CJNG but CDG has had confirmed miniguns since 2007. The original Zetas had them but as far as I know the remnants that stayed with CDG maintained them when the split occurred. We encountered them in Matamoros and Reynosa in 2010 and 2016. We also seized parts, ammo and support equipment for them several times in Matamoros in 2015-2016. There are reports of them being in Sinaloa but no verified confirmation. CJNG has close ties to US Military deserters and is aligned with CDG so it is no stretch to think that this is credible.

  18. What do you people mean what use? Bc you aren’t a criminal, have the money and licenses, amd it’s fun as hell to shoot. You can kill a lot of people if you fly your private plane with the internet to hurt others, same with many other items people are free to own, why, bc they don’t break the law and why the fuck should anyone be ok with any government saying you can’t have that bc you might! That kind of weak ass pandering leads to a vast number of freedoms being criminalized without actually commuting any criminal act or even possessing the intent to do so. Sheep, same way we saw everyone meekly accept the lockdowns all over the world.

  22. couldnt agree more with the post above re: people so willing to give up their freedoms and the freedoms of others. its not governments job to mandate lockdowns as they did very disturbing..2 weeks just to get over this curb...yeah got straight curb stomped didnt we? year plus in now with no end in sight unless we take it back. no violence needed just stop complying with the bs its that simple..


    look i dont have a political party i dont play identity politics, why am i pro freedom for individual citizens to own firearms? well bcuz i have come to know that most people are decent people or at least try to be, i trust you as my neighbor with a firearm more so than i do the government trying to restrict you.

    last but not least...the 2nd amendment does not grant anyone any freedoms, the document and the referenced amendments are all about dictating to government that they the government are not to infringe on you the individual citizens god given right to protect him or herself, this cannot be taken away...tho sadly they will continue to try to get u to give up this right...gotta educate oneself, not give into fear.


    dont be afraid of guns folks, be weary of the dregs who dont trust you with something as fundamental protecting yourself.

    these ideals we hold self evident, fundamental, not left wing not right wing... self evident and fundamental...enough with being so eager to ceed our freedoms to placate the corporate state, its un american and just plane stinks..
