To explain... The motor spins the plunger tubes around the edge of the gun casing. As the plunger tubes spin, the plunger itself is guided into a position using the torque of the motor. The reason the guides (red) are kind of stuttered is so the pin of the plunger has somewhere to rest when you stop firing. The plunger will have to be pressed quite firmly against the exterior of the casing, and made of something quite sturdy. As the plungers are guided to the end of the inclined slope, there's a sudden drop, which allows the plunger to fly freely, shooting the dart out as the plunger lines up with the hole. I'm not sure about the clip feed system. I thought of gravity fed, but it might not be fast or accurate enough, but if you use spring fed, the spring would have to be strong, which would deform the darts, in which case you'd need shells, and then you'd have a huge mess after you finished mowing everyone nearby down, not to mention having to carry rather heafty ammunition along with a rather heafty gun. ANYWAYS, I'll think about that later. The trigger would simply connect or disconnect the circuit for the motor. If the gun does use shells, there'd have to be a weak spring installed into each barrel and a hole in one part of the gun to eject it automatically. I got the idea for this fully automatic machine gun, and I'm rather fond of it, even if it's messy and slightly insane.
Any ideas, questions, comments and criticisms are appreciated.
Also, please note that it's not in my own power to create anything like this. If anyone on these forums could make anything even similar to this, my bets are on Captain Slug. So yeah, with that said, enjoy the idea at the very least!
Edit: Oh crap, did Captain Slug already plan something like this?
