Don't you mean Box magazines, not "Stick."

I mean Stick magazines: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyEn_xLeAwk
The gun is loaded via a stick magazine seen in the video.

Yes, but the technical term for magazines of said design is "Box Magazine," due to its design (a 5 sided, hollow, rectangular prism holding rounds in either a single row or staggered column, to be fed into the chamber of the firearm.)

You are correct, I was using the term incorrectly. I used the term 'box magazine' to refer to large capacity magazines.

Wow I'm impressed. But what's wrong with a crank? I believe the first Gatling guns were with a crank?

Nothing, crank-auto guns are stereotypically terrible, and most are.

Oh, you could probably use EB's full auto mech. Also, if you build and put an ible up, I'll build and try the wheels and a bigger mag. Oh, and what ammo?
