Hilton Multi-Purpose Gun
The Hilton Multi-Purpose Gun was a British grenade launcher with a system for switching between a variety of calibers. As standard it was a 38mm (1.5 inch) smoothbore less-than-lethal launcher, but it could be fitted with a variety of barrel inserts allowing it to fire either 26.5mm (1 inch), 12 gauge, or 5.56x45mm rounds. These inserts were fitted much like a standard round, with the launcher needing only to be opened, the insert slid into the barrel, and the relevant round fitted into the insert. Additional barrels were also produced chambered in rifled 38mm and 40x46mm, however these barrels were unable to accept inserts meaning that they could only fire their specified caliber. with these inserts and barrels it is possible for the Hilton to fire any lethal or less-than-lethal 40x46mm, 38/37mm, 25mm, 12 gauge or 5.56x45mm rounds on the market.
