Il Gatling ad elastici

27 Aprile 2011

Gatling guns have been the first firearms with a firing rate close to modern machine guns. Their principle is easy: A set of rotating barrels is turned by cranking a wheel, with one barrel after the other firing a round when it is in shooting position. This makes them technically and legally a repeating gun, not a full auto one – but it is close enough.

The Slingshot Channel took the challenge to design a rubber powered version of Mr. Gatling’s great invention. And here it is: Eight 20 mm balls, on their way to the target in less than half a second. The theoretical firing rate is 960 rounds per minute, slightly faster than the popular M16 assault rifle.

The video also shows how you can fire single shots with the weapon.

Dopo la fionda per sparare i machete già trattata qui, il buon Joerg Sprave ci presenta il Gatling ad elastici.
