Are you referring to the $5K minigun that fires .177 BB's?

I would love one of those- maybe the missus would let me trade in her old car...

Check this one out; EAA had these at their SHOT show booth, they're supposed to be bringing them in, and I'd love to get my hands on one :)

Why haven't we seen any press releases from Sarah Brady about these? Aren't they the weapons of choice?

If you are referring to the 6mm full auto "Airsoft" BB guns, then yes, I do own one. http://www.airsoft-guide.com/gear.asp?product=28 The Tokyo Marui M16 VN with 2 190-round hi capacity magazines. I spent about $300 to buy and import it from Hong Kong (they are much much much cheaper there), and play games with my friends using them. Its exactly like paintball, except with the honor system (since the BBs dont leave marks) and more "Mil-sim" (well, at least in some groups. Ours is pretty informal and geared more towards skirmishes :p )

I feel it was worth the price.

There used to be an outfit that made a full auto BB gun that was powered by those disposable freon cannisters. Not a lot of range, but you could take out flying insects.

I own one of the BB guns that Penman describes.
Back in the early 80s they were advertised in all the gun magazines. I believe I paid $29.00 for it. It used a can of freon used to recharge car air conditioners. The gun is made of all plastic. It holds something like 3000 BBs. The first big problem with it was that when you fired it, the freon can got cold and the colder it got, the less power it gave you. If you just held down the trigger within about 10 seconds or less the BBs would be litterally rolling out of the barrel and falling to the ground. It also has no accuracy at all. If you hold it up in front of your face and fire you can see the BBs coming out in a cone.
I haven't fired it in 15 years. It is in my dads basement. I don't think you can get the freon anymore.
Appearently at the time you could get an attachment to run the gun from an air compressor, but I never bought it. But that would have been the way to go.

I hate to bust your bubble, but the Baikal full-auto has been made yellow and semi-auto for the U.S. market. Check EAA's website at www.eaacorp.com:( :mad:

A 6 BB burst at 600 rpm would mess up any soda can I've ever seen, and would probably be a lot of fun for skeet-shooting dragonflies, too. Unless they rig it up to an air compressor, I don't see how you can expect a true FA airgun. If you read the page, the selector goes semi-3-6, and they have an additional selector for rate-of-fire. :)

Thanks for the info.:evil:

The site that PerfectGlock gave you has the "DROZD". It doesn't have true "full auto" mode, but it has 3 and 6 shot bursts. from 300-600 rpm

That wood box on his back is really cheesy lookin'.:D

Pipers Precision Products or whatever has the "Strafer Mk4". I've seen a "Strafer" on the internet before, and it supposedly fires 6000 rpm, just as fast as a minigun. Also, I'd like a bb minigun, but for 5k you could get a class 3 liscence and two mac-11 SMGs, and personally i'd get a real machine gun.

The website said semi-auto only:(

I think I'll just go out and buy an upgraded airsoft gun and metal BBs.

Below is what I found on their website at:


The first time we saw this CO2 powered, select fire BB gun we were amazed! We said to ourselves that the Baikal factory had better be ready to make a lot of these. The DROZD is powered by a standard CO2 cartridge and four (AAA) batteries to give you the ultimate BB gun. There are three switches on the Drozd :

The first powers up the electrical firing mechanism

The second is for the selection of fire (1 = single shot, 2 = three round burst, 3 = six rounds burst)

The third switch controls cycle speed ( 300 rds/m, 450 rds/m, 600 rds/m). The pistol style magazine holds 30 BBs at a time and the CO2 cartridge.

With the magazine inserted and the butt stock installed, you have the fit and feel of a military style weapon that shoots BBs for your shooting sports pleasure.

Looks select fire to me....
