A few friends of mine and I were wondering about building a crank operated .22 cal gatling gun. I could of swore that I saw some plans out there, does anyone have these or know where I can find them. And unfortunately here is the big question, what is the legality of it. Now it would be crank operated so technically it would not be a machinegun.
We just think that it would be really freaking cool to have a crank operated, 22 cal, hopper fed, multi barrel firearm that we built ourselves.

You are correct. Since it is hand cranked, it would not be a Full Auto. There is a place that sells a 58 Caliber black powder version here. The only problem I can see is getting high capacity magazines, unless GWB does what we are hoping in a few more years.

I saw a guy at the range the other day with a few of those 10/22 crank items that he made himself.
One item had 3 barrels and each crank of the wheel would fire each one 5 times for a total of 15 rounds with a single crank of the wheel. You should of hear it as fired off 3 - 25 round mags in only a few seconds. All you heard was a zipppp sound.

Illegal to hook up to an electric motor, but nothing wrong with adopting a stationary bicycle to it.

My stomach hurts after that one Gary. I'd put those old WWII iron sights they used in Aircraft, right smack in the middle of the handle bars.
