Gatling combustion spudgun

Unread postAuthor: origin unknown » Thu Jul 26, 2007 3:29 pm

I saw this video on youtube a while back, and I thought I would post it. Near the end of the video is a gatling combustion that I think has electrical contacts on the back of each barrel that when the contacts touch the other two contacts on the gun's reciever while they are rotated, it fires. Correct me if I am wrong.

I'm not sure how that Gatling gun works, but that big pneumatic cannon was pretty awesome.

I wonder if one of these guys is a member of spudfiles or a former spudtech member...

I'd be willing to bet, as suggested, that there are some sort of electrical contacts so when a barrel lines up with a common set of contacts it ignites and fires. My reasoning is because he didnt get one to fire, probably because he was spinning it too fast. But when he spun it slower it fired and he said "oops, there was still one left."

That's little more than 6 spudguns bolted together, but it's neat.

I like the huge pneumatic though. I'd love to have space to store and use something like that.
