The original weapon (not sure whether it was designed by Gwinn or not) was developed by Colt chambered in .221 Remington Fireball. It was tested in the late 1960s-early 1970s (the USAF Armament Lab report on it was published in 1971). There were apparently a small number purchased by the USAF under the designation GUU-4/P.
