What is a Mey Gun?

Anyone know what a Mey Gun is? I’ve come across one in ‘The Wall’ and can’t find a definition.
Thanks

I have no idea, but it might be a play on the name Megan. Would such an explanation dovetail in any way with how the term is used in 'The Wall'?

Thank you, but I don’t think it would fit. The gun belongs to a hulking guy who likes killing people and demons. But perhaps there will be a personal reason for the name which I will come across later in the book.
Thanks for your suggestion.

Yes, that’s where I found it and got the same lack of results. :?

How is it used in a sentence? Could it be a typo?

I don’t have the book anymore. As it’a scifi, it’s probably a made-up name.
