The fact that it wears itself out after a few seconds would suggest it does....

But it certainly wouldn't be practical - as one of the comments said imagine how much paint it would need lol.

Woah thats one AWESOME looking gun. Very unpractical though. I can believe that pressure too. Imagine that if you were playing! :twisted:

What I really want to know, is how he plans on feeding paint to that thing.

I didn't think a regular CO2 tank went up to 1200 psi. I've seen this video before. It is practically impossible to shoot painballs out of a six barreled gatling gun because they are so close together and spinning so fast that the centrifigal force being put on the paintballs pops them. Tippman has produced a working 10 barrelled gun that runs of of industrial CO2 tanks. They are meant to be mounted in painball tanks or in gun emplacements.

Standard CO2 tanks run at 800 PSI I believe.

A) I could have sworn unregulated CO2 was around 800psi depending on temperature.
B) No way a paintball would survive that in the barrel - even nicer "normal" paintball guns will break paint with the regulator set up high
C) He did an amazing job building/timing that thing anyway.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

maybe hes running it of HPA or N2?

also there is no room for a hopper, i dont think its shotting anything other than air, i bet thats a test run, as in not finished.

is that thing being spun by a drill? pause it in the first frame and check, also it appears the air source is located in the center of the barrels... and it does look like a co2 tank, but i could be wrong

there is no way this is the finished version of the gun

I still cant understand what the point of it is. If you can hit something with that you can hit it with a normal gun anyways, so this is actually just wasting paint! :D Nice idea tho i guess...

Heres one that supposedly works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnRh-5IRG3A&NR=1
