Butane Powered .68 Gattling Gun

While looking for inspiration for a project, I ran into this.



Who cares if the project will cost you a months paycheck, time away from your friends and family. I envy you people that is smart, imaginative and able to chart new paths for others to follow. I won't follow this guy but Kudos for his creativity.

Yes it works! he's sending me a link to his video.

Are those brass barrels I see? If so he needs to become a MCB member immediately! The original home of brass workmanship.

It's from Spudfiles, apparently.

Gatling #1 : Combustion Cannon Discussion


Seems that it has multi-barrel firing, too, instead of the usual spinning barrels around a single gun.

I'll be looking for the stats on that thing. Very nifty.

I would guess it is at least limited by the single loader (if that is the only one). I'm curious about the use of MAPP over butane and how much difference it makes. I prefer the smell of burning butane in the morning. I also wonder what temperatures the chambers get up to.

Actually, brass, rotating barrels (breeches) may just be the thing needed to allow for a combustible paintball system to work.

Rotating barrel systems were originally designed to overcome feed limitations but, a secondary benefit is that the barrels don't get as hot for a given sustained ROF.

Other than lack of access to compressed air or CO2, I'm wondering why the creator choose butane as the source. In a sustained fire, I would imagine it would need a heat sink the size an aquarium to keep the temperature down. From users of the Tippmann C2 propane pump marker, I've read the marker can get warm after a prolonged use.

This thing should get some cooling from the chambers rotating through the air. With some fins they would do a lot better. That's why I'm wondering where they run right now. It may need a heat shield as it goes faster. We could use ceramic breeches to slow the melting of paint.

It may run cool at 300 shots/min, but that could be fixed.
