Re: Build a Minigun

do you have any idea of how much work this involves? do you even have any resources to pull this off?

...and someone with no posts joins a forum; makes a post with bad spelling and grammer; asking for help in a huge project?...seriously??troll or what.....

...all im saying is, it maybe hard to take you seriously....and at the same time, i'd hate to see you go out and buy 6 tippmann 98s and realize you bite off more than you can chew on this project..

the 2 best (simipliest, reliable) mini guns i saw werent really mini-guns...they had 1 breach and chamber; and multiple barrels rotating in front that was timed.,,not multiple chambers timed to the action..(IN OTHER WORDS THE BOLT DIDNT TRAVEL INTO ANY REVOLVING PARTS)

Re: Build a Minigun

First and foremost, Welcome to the board.

Since it is your first post, I wanted to let you know that it is usually customary to post an introduction first. Telling us who you are, where you are from and what you have. You know that whole thing. You might turn people off if you just sign up and say "Hey I wanna do this can someone tell me how?" as you saw with hex. Plus, spelling and grammer help us to understand what you are trying to tell us.

Also, there is a button up top since you are obviously registered called the Search feature. When you click it, the drop down is shown and you can type in something and maybe someone has already found whatever it is you are looking for.

Please don't look at this as noob bashing, but more as a way to enlighten you on almost the standard.

Stay Safe

Re: Build a Minigun

Have you made your own pb marker from the ground up, before? If not, I'd start there. Get the basics of it under your belt first. Building a paintball gun from scratch can be daunting on its own. Once you introduce the added variables of a Gatling gun, it can be easily overwhelming.

I know starting smaller isn't as impressive, but you won't be swamped with as many complications, either. For what it's worth, the Gatling gun didn't just pop up overnight, either. Even after it was created, it still went through a million incarnations before it reached its present-day versions.

Just a thought...

Re: Build a Minigun

I've seen two semi succesful ones built before, one was made by Tippmann, the other by a college (physics or engineering) team from MIT. Neither of them ever saw a paintball game. On top of that neither of them intended on getting it to a paintball game. You should follow their lead.

Re: Build a Minigun

HOLY CRAP!!!! I found a more recent build that used real paintballs (all others I've seen use reballs).

Can you even imagine how much work that took him?

Re: Build a Minigun

Hex, pm sent.

Those miniguns are cool. Would only want to see one on the field if it was attatched to the front of my tank.

Re: Build a Minigun

lol, yes. I wish I knew how he did it, but in the descriptions of one of his videos he said he couldn't show the drive train due to legal reasons? I guess that thing must have some pretty serious legal implications, lol.
