Gatling Gun

Unread postAuthor: saladtossser » Thu Jul 07, 2005 12:44 pm

***UPDATE***

going to look like a beaut when its done with a satin black paint job. going to have 6 barrels, it will be longer later.

but still a whole list of stuff to do.

the gatling gun, i hope the pic shouldl explain how it works, a spring loaded firing pin will trave around the outer pipe, and is being pulled slowly away from the spring, when it reaches the 'drop', i will spring back and push a ball out of the barrel.

Image
i had to modify the springs to this

its a cut-away

still not done, but got all the parts except the springs

thats up to date for ya, still not done

Pretty creative. Good work, cant wait to see it completed. Although I dont know if that much spring lengh will give you much power. It will have to be a pretty powerful spring.

my friend made a gatling gun for 1 1/2 inch spuds. it only had 3 barrels but it was pretty cool. he broke one of those spinning bar chairs and used it to rotate his guns and he had our weed wacker to turn it automaticaly
he put this little / looking piece of wood to push in the BBQ starter on the back of all 3 wen it turned. ill try to go get some pictures of it but i have no idea what he did with it. and i need my weed wacker back

Sorry for kicking up a dead topic but, I would like to know what tool you used to cut the spiral shape into the bolt retractor. I may have figured out how to use gatling technology in a pneumatic cannon.

I don't think this is pneumatic or cumbustion. It's just powered by springs. As for my question, I just used a drill to perferate the pipe then cut the rest with a saw.

Right now I'm working on a gatling-like gun. It only has one 1.5" barrel and wrapped around that barrel is the spiral groove. The spare chunk that was cut off the spiral of 2" is attached to the bolt and the other chunk is attached to the stationary chamber and clip tee. The gatling bolt will be motorized by an electric screwdriver.

P.S. Multiple barrels only cause more chances to jam.
