Well, this is the second gun that i have re-done recently, as well as my SPAS 12, and like the SPAS 12, the second try was WAY better than the first.
after buying a load of black bricks off ebay, which i was going to use to make a FAMAS, i decided that actually i wanted to make another minigun.
So i did. it took about 3 school days, which is quite a while for me.
The end result, as you can see, was one AWESOME minigun. it is powered by 2 9v batteries, and driven by 2 9v motors. i incorporated an electric transformer a gear selector, to choose between fast and very fast, but very fast was way too fast, so i set up the transformer to double the power instead of the speed, so the gear now selects between fast and quite fast.
one thing that im quite proud of is the battery compartment - it slides out from the side allowing you to change the batteries in the two 9v battery casings.
rate of fire:
low speed: 9RBs/second
high speed: 25RBs/second!!!!!!
this has to be the highest rate of fire in any gun on mocpages, EVER!!!
this gun has a higher rate of fire than the micro uzi, whose ROF is 20rps (1250rpm)!!!
(i only just worked that out :-)

this is one of my favourite parts...
what do we have here? its the barrety compartment!
insert the batteries into the underside of each case. useful for changing batteries when they run out after overuse...
a front end view
it may not look it, but theres over 100 bands there!
dude that was awsome!!!!! you should have a lego gun war i mean with amount of guns you have it would be great and i am trying to get a website to where people pay you to watch the battles but i cant make the payment each month because my girlfriends birthday was yesterday and the present cleared out the bank and i am broke any way
Miniguns are nice
but guys if you ask for instrucions.....I dont think that Jack has instrucions for this on because it is a full auto matic system with motor, so I think he dont have them.
But Jack this is a Exellent Minigun! ;)
dude that was the most amazin thing i have seen in a very long time. do you only make these as a hobby or do you give out/sell the blueprints? if you wouldnt mind i would love to get my hands on a copy of this Gatling gun firstname.lastname@example.org
