K'nex Hand Gatling Gun

This is a K'nex hand gatling gun that fires yellow rods nearly 10 foot (thats 284 cm for people in UK)
Its easy to make and use.

My bands shot the rods very hard and fast, so dont aim at anybody!!

this is a problem with the firing mech which was suppost to be a full-Auto, but is a semi-auto.
Requires 2 wind up motors or else it wont turn.

I have a good idea if you get the two motors that connect into 1 controller and you get 2 of those then you could get 4 of these barrel systems and make a revolving gatling gun so it shoots 16 shots in 1 second if you turn both on at the same time
nice gun, but 10 feet is not 28 cm. 1 foot is about 33cm, not 10 feet!
10 ft is about 3.2 m.
anyway, nice idea

Hmm... Interesting. I think it would be more fun if you could make it spin with a trigger press, so it could be like a revolver.

Awesome gun man
I actually like the tiny barrel idea... I could use it to make a giant turret... Or not. The gun itself is alright, but the barrel is rather innovative.
