Updated this badboy with a new design and reworked the wiring a bit.

The minigun is now controlled with only 2 levers, making it much easier to control.
controls are also writen on signs above the levers indicating what controls what.

okay, so onto the technical aspects:

-just like the old design 8 dispensers firing arrows or eggs or whatever you put in them.
-one lever activating the bottom half, one lever activating the top half.
-using a stable rapid pulsar combined with a constant active redstone signal.

so, whats new?

-awesome gold stripes, just for fun,
-the whole thing is a bit smaller then the last version
-reworked the interior a bit, making it easy to find and reload the dispensers.
-added something


my upgraded version from the old V.1 cannon:http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/arrow-autocannon-v1/
this one comes with the following upgrades:
-awesome look
-automatic firing with central stop and startbutton
-8 barrels
-four firing modes:
-25%(not just 2 barrels shooting, but 4 barrels at half speed)-384shots/minute
-50% -768 shots/minute
-75% -1152shots/minute
-100% -1536shots/minute

i made this with a double rapid pulsar, with a override button, to disable the rapid pulsar on command(this way i get the half-power mode)
i will put up a download link for you guys to enjoy:)

okay, revamped this old piece to 1.8, made it more efficient, easyer to control and just more failsafe in my opinion

Additional Notes

Compatible with eggs!!!!!
Progress: 100% Complete

Make it a world save or make a video on how to extract schematics to minecraft.

to extract the schematic download the free program MCEdit,
done that, good, carry on
open your world, following on
click the crane in the bottom bar, ok?
then locate the downloaded schematic and simply select where you want it to go,
oh and hit import and make sure to save it, (Ctrl+s)

I really don't think that qualifies as a "Mini gun". Gatling, yes. Mini, no.

i could upload the world save, but it wouldn't be any good,
it is a experimental world, i have mcedited bits and pieces in and out, and i have had some fun shooting tnt/ blasting half of my world
and i have replaced a whole chunk of the world with a massive block of tnt, saved one second prior to detonating it...
i am planning to replace all of my projects to a single world someday, but that is a long way to go...

Ok, thats cool, could be great for mountain defense, but do you think in the next version you can just make all the wiring inside the chamber? It would help mount it on a swivel (if notch releases redstone swivel turrets) and it would also be easier to place on a structure, and would look nicer without the dirt under base.

i checked it, at first it didn't fire, but after i enabled all the barrels, and i reload the game it worked, i don't know why that happened though.
de-installing mods helps, i got a mod once that made random bits and pieces fall of, although i don't know of that is of relevance to your problem:)

if the wire output is red, it is off, and if the wire output is black it is on, that maybe a bit confusing

lastly, closing minecraft completely and restarting helps re-enabling the devices if they are completely burnt out

Ok, tried it, didn't seem to work, the wiring was on the fritz, chickens were everywhere, and it wouldn't fire all barrels, only 1, and when I reloaded the dispenser it wouldn't even fire.

found out that you just need to restart your save
do not rotate! it will fire at the inside if you do
