QEV gun question. I need opinions

Unread postAuthor: Infernal Maveric » Tue May 16, 2006 3:23 pm

I have just gotten 5 working 3/8" Detrol QEV's from eBay and was wondering...

Should I build a double barreld QEV gun. Using 2 QEV's linked together to 1 blowgun and save the other 3 QEV's for later projects

Or...

Use up all 5 QEV's and have a 5 barreled "mini-gun" style of pnuematic. I have desighned the 5 QEV gun on paper and have it set out in my head. But would I be worth it?

Thanks,

Mav

i'd build multiple cannons, otherwise you're reloading 5 barrels after 1 shot anyway

That's just redundant. If your going to have 5 barrels, try to make it a true minigun, otherwise just seperate them. I saw a picture of a so called "ptato gatling gun" it was just 3 cannons strapped together. He was credited with building the first PGG.

how bout a 5 chambered steel gun with a cpvc barrell, and then a hopper made from one way ball valve, so that it is a 5 seperate shot, almost semi auto paintball gun :D

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

or you could make a really small cannon with a fast charging chamber so you could have semi auto.
