I don't believe it is a good idea. The frame is only 14 gauge steel and
body is aluminum. I'd guess around the 3rd shot of the first burst you'd
be laying on your back.

I know of no photos or mauals showing any such mounts for any weapon on
the Mighty-Mite. I did sit an M151 mount and M60 in one once for looks.
It looked neat but I didn't bolt it down or anything.
