You guys have all the fun.

When does it get suppressed?

FYI, your minigun pictures don't compete with those in the Dillon calender. Just sayin' you could make them better... :twisted: :D

I do, but it's not one I will be posting. Suppressor is not as quite as I would like and I need to go back to the drawing board to fine tune it.

The minigun is 3,000-4,000 rpm right? So that breaks down to 500-667 rpm per barrel...that's less than an M240 so it should be doable...this is all speculative of course :D

Yep it's do able, but there are a few other things that have to be worked out besides the rate of fire per barrel issue. I have most of them worked out and now I just need to sit down redo my design a little and build another test unit.

yeah I've been fairly busy lately and then I've also been out of town a lot.

I'm going to try and get back in the swing of being on the boards again like I used to.

I do

That is so beautiful. And SO expensive to feed, like watching the national debt clock.

I believe that I saw your previous posts on that when you were building it James. Beautiful work!

I see engraving on the housing of the suppressor. Am I correct in assuming it is one registered piece vice multiple cans?

I like how you think outside the box with stuff like this, your longer 9mm cans, the purpose-built 300 whisper cans, etc.
