This is a full auto minigun slingshot
Joel Sprave is at it again. This time he made a full auto minigun slingshot. It`s pretty fast too, but then again what else would you expect to see with the word minigun in it?
Full auto guns have their very own fascination. Therefore, The Slingshot Channel revisits the Gatling concept - but this time, a far more advanced construction has been employed.
This new design shoots commercial pistol crossbow bolts, with eight "inline" barrels. (Interested fanatics may learn how to make such a barrel here:
The new gatling gun is much smaller, and no longer powered by a hand crank: A Black and Decker power screwdriver turns the barrel drum. True assault rifle feeling!
The surprisingly accurate weapon isn't maxed out in terms of band strength, but the little bolts easily penetrate the original B+D metal box for the power screwdriver.
Two HiSpeed super slomos show the action of the wheelgun in detail.
Also, you can win an original "Hansel and Gretel, Witch Hunters" backpack - filled with a slingshot surprise! Just leave a comment to this video.
