Video: Gatling-Style Crossbow Fires 8 Arrows Without Reloading


Here’s a little preview of what you can expect to see at the 2017 SHOT Show:

Meet the world’s first crossbow revolver. It’s a gatling-style air-powered crossbow, brought to you by none other than the guys at The Slingshot Channel.

This thing is pretty cool. If  you’re familiar with crossbows, you know the most common issue is ammo capacity. You get one arrow and then have to reload. This new prototype solves that problem by using a gatling-style eight arrow drum.

After you fire, the drum rotates another arrow into place, and you keep shooting. They also solved the problem of some airguns that decrease fire power with each shot. This one has a regulator built into it, which makes sure the last shot is as powerful as the first!

This new gatling crossbow invention will be on display at the 2017 Shot Show in Las Vegas, January 17 – 20, 2017.

These guys are always coming up with cool new inventions, so it wouldn’t shock anybody if they had a few other surprises up their sleeves. Stay tuned for more SHOT Show news in January.
