When you make non gunpowder weapons at home, you are usually restricted to single shot contraptions or manual repeaters at best. But of course the ultimate goal is to build a full auto machine gun style weapon!
That is by no means very easy. Muscle powered weapons are simply not quick enough for a true Brat-a-tat action. Gas powered engines are too heavy and clumsy for a portable weapon.
Of course there are modern battery drills - plenty of torque in small packages, lightweight and affordable. It makes sense to use those as power sources. But how to turn rotational motion into a linear cocking process?
We finally, at last, had success using a rack and pinion mechanism. The wooden gears had to be reinforced with massive aluminum for a reliable operation, but the result is very convincing.
It is a reality - true machine gun feeling!
Now on to optimization.

A "The Slingshot Channel" production.
The magazine system is like a Japanese type 96 and Madsen combined. Well though out system Sir.
the shooting force stays the same. Brilliant that mechanism with the drill!!
Using that electric screw driver as a trigger is totally awesome!
Definitely the coolest DIY I have ever seen.
Thanks for sharing....;)-=
A sector gear pulls on a toothed, springloaded piston and when the teeth of the sector gear run out, the piston is released and the spring forces the piston i to a cylinder causing quick air compression, which powers the small plastic BB out of the barrel of the gun.
The only real difference to the principle is that the power in this crossbow is derived from the rubber band instead of a spring, and that the electric motor powering an AEG is placed at straight angle because it doesn't rotate the sector gear directly but powers it through two other gears.
Bandits come to raid a woodland location they found that has slingshots, pencils, and crossbows.
And then, they hear the sounds of a man saying one sentence...
"Let me show you its features."
Seconds later, the bandits collapse from the wounds of five or so bolts each, and Joerg steps out of the shadows.
(Best crossbow I've ever seen. Even better that it's deemed legal, heh.)
Anyway it's always fun to watch your stuff, even though when you laugh it's kinda freaks me out:))
you can use an hub motor insted the drill
