    No news for the last year (or so) besides one or two videos. I assume the pandemic hit them just as hard any everyone, but I’m curious at what stage their development/production timeline is.

    If they haven’t announced it, then assume it’s under heavy NDA.

    I don’t know anything about them other than the few videos I’ve seen, but I’d guess the idea is probably shelved. Covid hit everyone hard, and I doubt they’ve gotten any military contracts, which is about the only thing that would sustain a post-sample machine gun manufacturer selling a mini gun.

    It’s a neat product, there’s just not really a market for it.

    What was the proposed use of it? With a ROF that high, carrying enough ammo to feed it for any real length of time would seem impractical.
