Hi guys! I decided to build this great gun, as i have always liked big projects (well, kinda). It has some brilliant features, such as the CHAIN LOADED finring system (a first for me) , top handle, back angled handle, and of course spinning barrell. The stand pivots through 150 degrees (roughly) and can turn slightly without breaking. I am planning to make this into an instructable, and be the first to post a full knex minigun instructable. Hope you like!

EDIT: SHE IS FINISHED!!!!!!! INSTRUCTABLE: http://www.instructables.com/id/RMConstrictions-Knex-Minigun-V20/

There is an 'ible by the way...
The definition of a chain gun is basicly the gun you have there, A minigun is a gun whith multipul rottating barrels that each fire when they reach the top of the gun. (Fun Fact) The fastest chain gun fires around 1000 bullets a second. The fastest minigun fires 24000 rounds a second
Actually, dude, 24000 rounds a second would be impossible... so would 1000 rounds a second. The m134 dillon minigun, is the most advanced and fastest firing gatling gun in service today. It fires 3000 rounds a minute, yes minute, not second. Which is actually freakishly fast. The reason it fires so fast is because it has 6 rotating barrels, which can fire any standard nato 7.62mm round such as tracers, armour peircing and so on.

I KNOW LEAVE ME ALONE, I TRIED, OK?
Miniguns are capable of firing much faster but they have to be toned down as far as that goes.

Don't lecture me, question me.

Go say that to ironman69 and his minigun if you dare!

FUN FACT: It is physically impossible for a single person to hold (with no support at all) a minigun and fire it at the same time.
RMConstruction (author)  bighead54543 years ago
Not actually true. There is a triple barrel in the GAU series, I thing it's the GAU-17 Equaliser (Possibly 19...) that can be.

yeah, it is a bit skeletony, but i'd have to say this is one of the best miniguns other than ironman's. post it!!! I would also make that chain a little longer though. that chaing would probably run out in like, a second. great gun man 5 stars!!!

I only have that many links :p
i tried to make a mini gun, but i dont have a motor that i can use cause i bought it off ebay, and it was missing the main gear. my minigun chain bullets could shoot like 30 feet at least. they were really powerful for a minigun.

nice minigun. I like it, could be a bit bigger, but it would be a bit too heavy to move without it breaking if you did.
RMConstruction (author)  The Jamalam4 years ago
yeah... i tried to add extra layers but ran out of spacers :p

hmm, you got my hopes up. this is a chain gun, not a minigun. but good job anyway! still looks cool.
RMConstruction (author)  dsman1952764 years ago
But, for you, what defines a minigun from a chaingun?
DJ Radio4 years ago
Its a bit skeletony, but A minigun like that uses a ton of parts, so I understand. Go ahead and post

RMConstruction (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
