    Here's my second attempt at a wrist mounted vulcan. The vulcan itself is overvolted, has AR removal and has a larger spring (5.8kg). Ranges are roughly double stock and RoF is slightly higher than stock, though its only running 12v at present. I hope to run it at near 16v via trustfires. I am also attempting to create an ammo box that will hold a 100 round belt, though this is more likely to end up on another vulcan, one that isn't wrist mounted. I am still having some huge issues with jamming and am going to open up the shell to check i haven't balls'd up the internals when i took it all apart. What's currently happening is that the belt just won't feed most of the time. Has anyone else experienced this, or know a solution?
    In the photos, you'll notice two red wires coming out the top of the front of the gun. This connects to either a left or right handed glove trigger mechanism, and I will later make a motion sensor sentry mount for it that plugs into the same place. Basically, these wires go to a modular trigger system. You will also notice the cable coming out the base. This leads to an external battery pack (the same one i use for my stampede and as-20) and can be unplugged in favor of a shorter cord for some other batteries once i get them.

    Interesting idea, but just a couple of things you might want to consider:

    1) You will still need the lid to keep the belt from falling out.

    2) You should consider a bar from the bottom of the ammo box linking to the other side of the vulcan, and some plate to connect to the underside of the vulan to keep the ammo box in place. This is because the ammo boxes have a tendency to fall off easily.

    3) And lastly, I am about to do a test with springs for the vulcan and will have the best ones for sale soon. My vulcan killer was a 13kg spring but was consistently getting 70ft... but it was so strong that it was tearing the plunger arms in half.

    But keep at it.

    I will probably bastardise some sort of lid to stop the belts falling out. At the moment, you can't lift the top up to put in a new belt, you have to feed it in by hand through the side. I'm still working on a way to be able to open it up and clip it back down again as the wrist mount gets in the way of this.
    WIth the box, i was planning on actually connecting it on both sides of the vulcan, so that there is a place to catch the belt as it comes out (which you would be needing on the 90th shot). As in some sort of clamp or something. It would actually screw into the sides of the blaster, not just clip in lightly.
    I am amazed that you could stick such an enormous spring in it. I wouldn't really be game enough to stick something that huge in a vulcan.

    Yes but you probably dont have 10 Vulcans either. But it wasnt so much about the load of the spring, it is for me all about trying to get the most out of it. I am currently having a 12, 11, 10 and a 9kg vulcan spring being made and vulcans will die... die they will until the day one survives and that one, that one will have the spring that I will be selling soon afterwards!

    Now as for 90 shot long belts, have you tried that weight yet on your wrist? If not, i think your about to find out just how heavy these belts can be. I currently have about 30 vulcan belts and have found that 50 shot long is best for weight and maneuverability. Also, you will need a massive box for 100 shot belts too, so that will be a huge box on either side.

    I think your idea is good for shorter belts but at the upper end i think you might be overdoing it without a shoulder strap.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to start out small, and work your way up to the point they start breaking, then go for more rigorous testing?
    Also, after thinking about it, i dropped the idea of using the 100 round belt on the wrist mount (like i said) and was thinking more for a normal vulcan.

    As for starting small and working up, that is difficult because of the springs i found from the spring manufacturers they were jumping in strength, i went to the strongest group i had and then there was one at about 6kg then the next was 13kg. And well i am not scared of breaking things as you learn more from something breaking than if nothing breaks at all.

    From a design and trial error point of view, you typically will find the breaking point. Lastly, for me at least vulcans are quite cheap, so cost wise i dont care if they break.

    + If you got da money why not go trial and error. That's how I use to mod back in the day lol.

    mite be a bit late to the story but for a ammo box you could try putting a big container on the bottom and have it lock in to the part where the tri pod locked in that should stop it jaming a bit
