I thought about making one a while back. Basically, my design was like a gatling gun but instead of barrels I had wooden dowels with grooves filed (with a round file) into the front so the rubber bands stay in place. Nailed to the top (farthest from the axis of rotation) of each barrel closest to the breech was a wooden clothespin. I'd load each barrel by strechting a rubber band over the groove in the "barrel" and clip the other end in the clothespin. All the barrels would be attached to a rotating axel like a gatling gun. A slanted peice of wood fixed outside the barrels aligned on a slant would depress the back of each clothespin as it passed, firing each rubber band at a rate of fire solely dependant on how fast you crank the axel.

I made a very powerful rubber band gun a long, long time ago.

check out the design here : http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/crossbo ... t2172.html

it was more powerful than most pneumatic marble guns out here.( but defenitly not all!!)

I really should start building these things again!!
It was so much fun!!

Wait, a gun powered by rubberbands? Why do that when you can power things with much more devastating effects in a pnumatic or combustion gun. It is a novel idea, I guess :roll:
