K'nex Gatling Gun

About: Amateur photographer and dabbler in K'nex weaponry.

 This is version 2.2 of my newest project, a four-barrel gatling gun. You cock and load the barrels (basically a shortened version of my earlier pistol), grab the handle, and give the wheel a spin. This is a much improved version of my first stab at a gatling gun, which had less power, broke more often and was harder to use.

Note: The first picture is upside-down. You can hold it like that, but it works better when held the other way.

    u know, that was actually very mean. i expected more from you dj. at least a little constructive critism! i like the concept of the gun, but the handle looks a little flimsy. (my opinion)

    well, the comment was not made to insult or to put down. I was just stating that as someone that i look up to, DJ could have been a little more sympathetic instead of throwing it in his face. I'm sorry if I offended you or DJ.

     Actually, it's pretty strong (besides the armrest, which breaks occasionally). The frame flexes a touch when you pick it up, but that improves firing.
