    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.

    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
