This is the best i could do, I admit its poor but still meant to give the idea. Very similar to Conventional GPMGs


Still Not So Sure?


The Swingarm is moved to the left as the left Bolt moves back, As it just starts to move forwards, The Swingarm flips back instantly giving a fresh link of three rounds

Thinking about using the 'Vickers/Maxim' type Belt Feed Device since it is more compact, Just re design it to take 3 Round Links

Your chambers are too close together for an automatic weapon, it'll explode in your hands. Take my spacing advice. It works fine. Besides, firing 2 barrels then 1 barrel will cause problems. Your recoil will be difficult for anyone to learn.

Probably would blow up being rapid fire and using Magnum Rounds unless the Chamber is extremely thick

I suppose you would be best off using belted .30 Carbine rounds,

Belted .458 SOCOM rounds could just be the right choice for you


Are you trying to revive the 'Gardner Gun'?


And your point?

Each Barrel's ROF the same as a Conventional SMG/PDW so around 700/800RPM

While One barrel Reloads, The Other does the Shot

Quite a good idea, I do see your point of a 'Minigun Substitute' since it has multiple barrels and the 'Nordenfelt' being a Gatling Rival, Then the Gatling was revived just after WW2 for Aircraft use, I guess your trying to do the same thing with the Nordenfelt Device.

This is actually not a very revolutionary design, mechanically speaking;
normal operation But why have 3-barrels that poses so much more problems than is solves. My recomendation is that you should focus on a hi-powered Gas-controlled SMG with low cyclic rate of fire.

Errrr, sorry, but these are not belted cartridges.

He meant "belts of .30 carbine". In which case they would be belted .30 carbine rounds, as opposed to .30 carbine rounds with belted cases.

Few if any automatic weapons I can name offhand use belted cases anyway.

Ooops! I stand corrected.

All the more so that a belted cartridge would seemingly be impossible to feed in a simple way from a belt. It would have to be completely withdrawn backward before being pushed forward to the chamber just to be freed from the belt, I guess just like when the links are not open (canvas belts ?).

Many machineguns feed that way.

I know conventional GPMG's are good weapons but i wanted to come up with somthing totally different, Somthing that could equivalate the Gatling Device but without the moving barrels so i got the idea from the Nordenfelt Gun which was a Gatling rival.

Maybe this RCC/Handheld Nordenfelt can fire at a lower rate of fire
(About 800/900RPM) but will just fire while the other barrel reloads. Its effect would be more man-stopping like a Shotgun but using carbine/revolver rounds instead. A bit like the old 'Mitraileuse Volley Gun'?

.458 SOCOM rounds look ideal for this weapon,

And about it being a 'Chain Gun', I will post an image later.
