I gotta get that, looks like lots of fun. What's the rate of fire per minute? The article only says two per crank cycle.

The description says 4 per crank, so I guess it all depends on how fast you crank and really how fast your 10/22 recievers can cycle. I know I can rap 50 rounds of real quickly with my 10/22 just shooting semi auto with the trigger so even with 2 of them going thats twice as fast plus the added speed of the crank!!! You could mow down a field of popcans. Squirrels beware

I dont know the exact wordage of the law but it is illegal if it uses any sort of motor to run the trigger. I read this in a previous thread discussing the same gatling gun, do a quick search and you should be able to find it.

Haha That is exactly the same question as how would you get cought with M-16 internals in AR-15 or some sort of trigger seer modifications to make your 10/22 full auto. It doesnt matter how you get cought just that you can get cought then to the pen. You dont really want to test the law, it only takes once.

how about a pull starter from an old lawnmower? 20revolutions per pull x 4 rounds per revolution x 2 seconds to yank the rope = 2400 rounds per minute. Not to shabby for a 10/22

how about connecting it to an old bike, take off the wheel and and the gattling gun...and gearing it down...you could get like 10 rounds per crank. If the cops came you'd probably end up on real TV or something like that.

You don't need to add a cordless drill to increase speed, just a gear. They way they are set now (or the one I saw) is with a 1:1 ratio of crank turns to the little axle that turns in the triggerguard that has the cam that depresses the trigger 4 times. Add a gear and get 8 pulls per crank, or as many as you want.

Keep thinking, friends. Just be careful about what what you actually do.

Would this be legal?

I think it would IF there was no clutch on it, so turning the bike pedal would fire the gun. If there was a clutch on it to disengage the firing system from the feeder/delinker, I think the answer might be different. On the older miniguns, there was no clutch; when you powered the motor, the motor would turn the rotor, rounds would feed in, go through the gun and the gun would fire. When you let off the trigger the gun would continue to fire off a few rounds as the barrels stopped turning. With the Dillon Aero clutch, you can seperate the feeder/delinker from the firing system, so one button powers the power to the motor, one disengages the clutch (at least thats the set-up on the minigun I have experience with). Thus to fire the weapon, you grab the grips and hit one buttom on each grip - one powers the motor, one disengages the clutch. If the operator lets off either one, the gun will stop - either because the clutch goes on and seperates the firing system from the feeder, or because power to the motor/rotor is cut.

So why is all this important (at least in my opinion)?

Because if a clutch can be engaged and disengaged, turning the pedals only turns the motor. In that instance the pedals don't fire the gun and aren't really the "trigger". The button for the clutch, I think, would be deemed to be the "trigger".

Of course all this is just speculation - to get a proper answer you'd need to ask the Tech Branch.
