I have had a two of these guns for about a year now, and want to share it with the community now that i have finished university.
the concept came from the barricade, and wanted to modify but I didn't want to damage it (as it was a present from a friend).
So i started prototyping with Lego, using a failed dart reloader as the base (as it fit the cartridges perfectly)
well, to cut a long story short here are the results, see what you think
Range: over 15 meters
ROF: 35 darts in 17 seconds
Lithium Ion powered (14.8v 850Mah) lasts about 8 Hours of use
Volume is less than the barricade
Sturdy in battle, no bits drop off when being handled roughly
the parts are not glued in any way, only 3 switches are glued to a few bricks.
firing push rod always resets itself to quickly fire the next shot, with a smart circuit, whilst eliminating misfiring
light enough to duel wield. (the club i was in stopped me doing so, as i consistently owned them with it)
it can also be disassembled for transport.
