Gatling Idea

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Fri Jun 23, 2006 11:52 pm

I figured out a mechanism for a gatling gun. This would be easiest to do with sprinkler valves. For the filling, have a central tube that would be connected to an air supply, put 2 O-Rings on this tube and slide a slightly bigger tube over it, connect each chamber to the outer ring, the air would pass through the tube between the 2 O-Rings and to the chambers.

For the firing mechanism, have a ring around the valves and a bump in this ring that will push the blowgun on the valves down. There are also easier ways to do it electronically but would be more powerful with blowguns.

If I ever get a chance to go the harware store and get a few friends to help I want to build a 3 rotary gun. 6 barrels is just too many and too expensive.
