Knex Swift Gatling Gun




This is a knex gatling gun that I built and is very easy to build and does not take very many pieces. It has 8 barrels and shoots about 10-20 feet which is not that great but has a rate of fire of about 8 every one or two seconds. It is not hand held so there fore does not really have a true trigger but to fire all you do is push a lever down. it takes about 30 or 40 seconds to load 8 yellow rods. This is my first Instructable so i am open to any criticism.

Hope you like it lets start building!

Step 1: Create the Barrels

in this step you will create the barrels

Step 2: Creating the Stand

this is the stand for the acutual gun part and in the

Step 3: Assembly

Put together all parts of the gatling gun and ask if you have any questions

Step 4: How to Load

this is how you load. On this gun there are no ramrods there are just rods with a rubber band on top. Follow the pictures to load and do that to every barrel then to fire just pull the yellow rod handle up.

thanks for building this gun
