SKS Gatling gun

There are odd guns out there, and then there is this. A listing on Gunbroker that just ended consisted of six SKS rifles with 75 round drums arranged in some sort of odd Gatling mechanism. The listing was started at $3,500 and I don’t think anyone bid on it at all (it was viewed 341 times). Either way, this tops some of the oddest combinations of machines and firearms I’ve seen. From the auction description-

SKS gatling Gun,shoot one gun at a time, with mechanism it spins as fast as you want.Comes with 3- Yugos[butstocks included]3 -chinese [buttstocks included],6- 75rd drums,12-30rd gun to shoot.This will require 6 guns shipped to your FFL

    • I do miss his show. Now there doesn’t seem to be any gun shows left. Out West Alaska and American Guns were also good.

  • Giolli Joker

    It was shown in a video I recently saw, I’d say from Forgotten Weapons.

    • Rock Island Auction

      Same concept, though this is a different set up.

  • M.M.D.C.

    As with so many GB/eBay auctions, this could be fine but it’s presented so poorly we’ll never know. Blurry, shaky pictures of a dark weapon on a light background. Sorry, but if I can’t see it I ain’t gonna bid on it.

    And it’s in a messy kitchen/home office that hasn’t been updated in 20 years or so. And it’s missing paint and an entire rifle, apparently (again, hard to tell since it’s such a dark, blurry mass). Everything about this says “pass.”

    So will this rig make 6 semi auto rifles into a full automatic weapon in the eyes of the goverment? I am not trolling, I’m seriously asking.

    • Asdf

      No. It is hand crank driven.

      • Jeff Smith

        ^ what he said. It’s still 6 semi auto rifles that fire once each time the triggers are pulled. It’s legal to create a way to make the gun fire faster as long as the actual firearm stays an unmodified semi automatic rifle.

        • Rock or Something

          …and as long as no one keeps writing to the ATF for “clarification”.

          • Vitsaus

            So true. So painfully true.

          • Jeff Smith

            Haha, I believe legal precedent has already been set with regards to the Akins Accelerator stock for the 10/22 that came out a while back. As long as there’s no spring force cycling the mechanism, it should be fine.

            Still, who knows?

          • MichaelZWilliamson

            Gatlings and cranks are specifically authorized, since it requires constant hand action to fire. You cannot equip them with a powered crank.

    • jerry young

      no one pull of the trigger = 1 shot, still semi auto, you can buy hand cranks for ruger 10/22’s that do the same thing but with only 1 gun

    • Knowing this government Billy; anything is possible.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    And I thought I had a lot of guns in my kitchen.

  • DaveP.

    I remember seeing something like this in the ’80s, only with Ruger 10-22’s or Mini-14’s.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Me too, think it was 14’s.

  • iksnilol

    I like it, I get a Fallout/Borderlands vibe from it.

  • Never been done befo’!

  • All the Raindrops

    Made in some gross studio apt lol.

  • Taofledermaus

    Looks like a Royal Nonesuch creation! Oh the days of $75 SKS’s…. and $80, 1440 cases of 7.62×39 Chinese ammo…

  • Bill Harzia

    They should have left the bayonets on it. Then it would be REAL mall ninja gangnam style.

  • The most amazing thing in this post are comments of people who mock the author of this gun for his non-expensive apartment that wasn’t renovated recently. What. The. F. Is it really so important to Americans? Is anyone who’s not living in a freshly renovated, separate house (bought and renovated on borrowed money from the bank, of course!) – a hobo?
