Computer-Controlled Gatling BB Gun

Have a squirrel problem in your back yard, or maybe mice in the barn? Here’s an innovative, high-tech solution. Starting with a hand-cranked, pneumatic Gatling BB-Gun kit from BMIKarts, a talented machinist created a servo-activated, air-powered Gatling that can be “aimed” with a lap-top computer. A high-pressure air hose provides the energy to launch the BBs, while both traverse and elevation are handled by computer-controlled, electric servo-motors. Watch the video below, and you’ll notice some very nice machining on this mini-Gatling. Actual firing starts at the 24-second mark.
