21 minutes on Gatling "Hammer"

I'm building something like this myself with mostly used parts I've been accumulating from Ebay, but intend on it being on a tripod with double Flatline barrels and double Cyclone feeders. The new vortex mod from has a 98 Custom pushing 25 balls a second. I thought 50 balls (25 x 2) a second with flatline would make a pretty ferocious scenario machine gun platform...

I've got most of the pieces. Once I get them all, I am going to post a "how I did it" thread...

Looks like the home made version of the A-5 Double Trouble.

I think he wanted a bit too much for that setup, even with a scuba tank.

Agreed on the price, too steep.

Holding it is easy, You have 2 drings on the rear of the markers, use slings to attach to your vest or the included scba harness, use the left hand to use the single vertical grip, rock and roll.

I have shot one a time ago, it was a A-5 setup, it was cool to crank out and fire a bunch of paint just because I could.

It's back up! Starting $450 now...

Frontier_Bill 07-25-2006 02:47 PM

Meh, still too much...
wait, how much would the tank cost?

badkarma 07-25-2006 04:54 PM

Around 200-250 if its in hydro and service. SCBA's are a little more pricey then SCUBA and have a lifetime on them do to heat exposure, chemicals, etc..

If it had cyclones on the 98's it might be worth it.

I'm doin something similar to that right now. Except I'm using two .68 carbines and there will only be one grip inbetween the guns so you can actually hold it. I'm putting a firestorm crank on it, but I shaved down the little tab so I need to find/fab. a new one. Headaches...

Back to topic, looks good, but I agree, where would you hold it? That and the big space between the guns is kinda awkward and ugly.

BTW, anyone know where I could find that firestorm tab thingy since it looks like the company went under?
