Gatling gun AR15, compliments of Jerry Miculek!

    Miculek is at it again with his Youtube shenanigans! This time he has enlisted the help of a Gat Crank, from a company called Two Z Precision. The gizmo is only $30, and consists of a series of cranks, bars, and activators that presses an AR15 trigger three times within one rotation. Miculek essentially reviews the piece on his private range with his S&W AR15 in his typical style of candor and humor, but he is very safety conscious, and serves as an excellent role model for this. He shoots several magazines, and a drum magazine with this contraption, both with a suppressor on, and then off. Then he just plays along with “helping the planet” by buying as many sugar filled drinks as possible and blowing them all to bits on his range. The ending of the movie is especially interesting as the camera captures the action of the crank in slow motion footage so you literally see each firing sequence as the crank is turned on the AR.

    However, I will say something looks a bit off during the firing portions of the Gat Crank. As if the footage was speed up just a wee bit to make it appear like fully automatic fire. If anyone can confirm or deny this in the comments section, that’d be an interesting answer.
