Vulcan Mini Gun

A re-work of a Nerf Vulcan mini-gun by adding spinning barrels. Shot on a Panasonic SD5 and edited in FCE4. Instructions on building this mini-gun: I cut the barrel off of the Nerf Vulcan with a bandsaw, leaving the last 2 5/8" of it and the ridge above it. At that point I separated the gun itself into its two halves by removing the many screws, being careful to note how it all has to go back together. Next, I created the 6 barrel assembly by cutting one length of PVC ½" I.D. tubing into 6 equal lengths at 8 ¼". I cut one additional piece at 7 to act as a sleeve to cover the center rod, or axel that the barrels turn on. I then cut 4 4" dia. disks out of MDF (medium density fiberboard) on a bandsaw, 3* out of ½" and 1 out of ¼", which are the barrel supports. I stacked 2 of the ½" disks, with the ¼" one in the center and using masking tape, I taped them all together. Using a protractor and compass, I laid out the barrel pattern and with a drill-press I drilled the 6 7/8" dia. holes with a paddle bit for the barrels and one ¼" hole in the center of each for the ¼" dia. threaded rod, which spins the thing. I counter-sank both end pieces slightly so the sleeve covering the threaded rod would stay in the center. I put it all together, using a nut at each end of the rod to pull end pieces against the center sleeve, aligned the barrels and secured them with drywall screws. I painted the barrel assembly, because I knew I wasn't going to be able to reach everything once I got it together. In order to hold the barrel assembly, and attach it to the gun, I took a piece of 7/8" wide x 1/8" steel flat stock (Home Depot), bent it into a J shape large enough to reach both ends and drilled holes just a little larger than the threaded rod. I used skateboard replacement wheel bearings at end of the rod for the assembly to spin on. I used the extra 4" disk(*) I cut earlier, counter-sunk a whole big enough to hold the skateboard bearing and fit it in behind the plastic, cutting away what I needed to make it fit. The motor that comes with the Vulcan wouldn't rotate the barrel assembly fast enough for me, so I removed it, and used an old 9v motor out of a battery operated drill that I no longer used. I cut and fit the electric motor into place, wired in series with the trigger switch and added a power adapter plug from Radio Shack, along with the purchase of a 9v Power Adapter. I used a piece of rubber tubing to make the flexible connection between the motors drive-shaft to the threaded rod. I also created a piece of ½" MDF, looking like the figure 8, at the barrel to hold & hide the other skateboard bearing, this was locked off with a locking nut. There was a lot of cutting & fitting to make it all work.

M134 Minigun Firing (w/Slow Motion) at Knob Creek
Firing 10 second bursts from the M134 at the Knob Creek MG Shoot Fall 2012. Insane rate of fire and an incredible sound. HD and High Speed (Slow Motion) footage of this iconic gun. Here's a link to my friend's 240FPS video showing a full 10 second burst fired from this gun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDNelBCB_BY Taofledermaus has awesome M134 footage as well, be sure to check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eA1QtgFGrYA From the best of my knowledge, it is one of the older General Electric models, but has a newer, most likely Dillon Aero, barrel and possibly other parts on it. Hard to be an expert on something you've never seen before though. The barrel keeps the flash down to basically zero, so there's just a huge gust of wind that comes off of it while firing. Calculated it to be firing at 58 rounds per second (3480 RPM) from the 600 frames per second footage. Definitely the most expensive gun there (and they actually had two of them out on Saturday). Thanks for watching!

The age anyone can play this game depends on the insurance cover that each site has. Most sites in the UK, USA etc accept players from age 14, though many will also accept players as young as 10. I would advise that before playing Airsoft at any site, you make sure it has insurance cover for all players. Always wear eye protection when playing Airsoft, even if you are just playing in your backyard. Airsoft is non-lethal, no-one has ever been injured using these. It is not possible to convert these items to use anything other than little plastic BBs. Above all, Always play safe.





Minigun vs AR500 Armor plates
The age old question, will a minigun shoot through body armor? Well maybe it isn’t an age old question, whether a minigun will shoot through body armor, but it would still be interesting to know. This M134 Minigun is a 7.62x51mm NATO, six barrel rotary machine gun with an extremely high fire rate. Watch this gatling style machine gun fire away at body armor. The fire power of the gun is apparent as the shooter is thrown a bit back. Who would’ve guessed the large rounds wouldn’t have pierced the body armor, but it didn’t. Miniguns are as cool as it gets when it comes to power, speed, and innovation.
