Very nice, so simple, yet it works well. So it's 3 semi auto guns firing as one full auto crank gun? So the crank pushes the triggers.

This is excellent. Get a video up if you're able to. I just subscribed to you.

Thanks. I doubt that I will get a video of it (really unlikely it will happen), I've already taken it apart and started on a new project. And thanks for following/subscribing to me.

So, this works by continuously tripping a series of semi-auto triggers? Is that correct? And does it fire one after another or in bursts?

author
Masterdude (author)Oblivitus2011-12-29

Yes. By turning the handle, an axle rotates with connectors which push the triggers, one by one, left to right, so the gun fires a three shot burst, where one shot follows the other is fast succession, for every full turn of the handle.

Simple, but extremely clever. Not many people think to look back to the "obsolete" (as many mistakenly call it) to make their design. I love it.
