Introduction: Simple Knex Miniminigun

Picture of Simple Knex Miniminigun

Small and accurate at a close range. It shoots about 10-15 feet depending on how stiff the rubber band is. The handle is behind.

does it shoot

The Jamalam (author)jack123542011-09-10

No, the rubberbands are just there for show.

some models can be handheld, but yes, most need a tripod

A minigun is always mounted. A handheld would be a gattling gun.

TigerNod (author)Dutchj2009-04-29

A gattling gun refers to 20mm guns (way too heavy to be handheld, the A10 is also equipped with this gun).

A minigun is called a minigun because it fires in a similar fashion but it is smaller then gattlings and fires smaller 7.62 mm rounds. They are used on vechiles or in gunships like the spectre (aka spooky) or bell huey.

According to wikipedia, only the microgun, (even smaller then the minigun, firing NATO 5.56 x 45 mm rounds) (link: ) can be man carried, but you need a bipod to put it on and two man to carry it (one man for the ammo and the bipod, one man for the gun itself and the power source)

Overall, handheld miniguns are possible, but unpractical compared to, say, a SAW.

Well, then again, I'm no expert on miniguns.

Not to be mean or anything, but a minigun is a very large handheld machine gun. This is a minigun: herehere

Well lets just say mini mini

knexguy (author)Jahoovi2008-06-10

Lets just say never post anything of this nature again.

Make it mini gun and you're good to go.

Not to be mean or anything, but miniguns can not be held. They are too heavy.

Hey check out my Knex Wall-E

Yellow84 (author)2008-06-07

I'd vote it 5 if it didn't suck haha nah its good, however, there are too many k'nex guns, like way too many. and they are all the same, but with different pieces for a different look. They are all easy to make and if i bought k'nex again i could make 100's of them chances are though, i'd get really bored after 2 if that. not to mention i don't want to spend money on a plastic bucket full of plastic pieces so that i can make an amazing star wars gun to complete my star wars fantasy

for a tripod ( which doesn't look like one 'cause it's small) go to:

The Jamalam (author)Jahoovi2008-06-07

why don't you retitle it?

This is good. I'm dissapointed, however, that people still think they can post block triggers when we are about 52 guns ahead of block triggers. However, i noticed that this gun is a tad more complex then most, therefore I am giving it a 3/5.

The Jamalam (author)2008-06-07

however, it is quite strong, and I would rate 4 stars if it wasn't block trigger.
