DIY Gatling Gun Auctions for $3,450

From Vocativ:

A bespoke gunsmith with a little too much time on his hands has figured out how to transform a cache of rifles into a poor man’s Gatling gun.

The DIY “Redneck Obliterator” consists of six SKS semi-automatic rifles equipped with high-capacity magazines, arranged in a circle to facilitate automatic fire. With the turn of a hand crank, each rifle discharges in rapid succession, effectively mimicking the machine gun’s iconic forerunner.

    Not a big surprise it sold.
    People buy anything from “Pet Rocks” to “LA Smog in a jar”.
    I guess there is one born every day.
    And a shiester to match.
    Most of us have a higher level of integrity and wouldn’t take advantage of the naive.

    Just another toy that the ATFE will use as ammo for gun control.

    We had one of these in a Tulsa gun shop 15 years ago.

    In my waning years I have pretty poor eyesight, so one of these would make a pretty good deer gun, huh?

    “Sons of guns” made one with three 12 ga shotguns a few years ago. Another waste of cheap guns.
