So simple word math.
All parts except receiver are "reversed engineered"
Receiver was created from blueprints.
So all parts you did not have BP's for... so... you have the actual part?
You have a minigun (if only in pieces, less a receiver)?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Yes, I've had, in my possession, all the parts except the receiver but not all at once, and I had to give them back. They were on loan for this project.
Also does Wal-Mart sell this ammo or do I need to hit up amazon prime...lol
Mine takes .308 30 cal. Which is 7.62mm
I havent checked walmart for that lol, but there are places to get deals, and from other forum members of similar message boards. Got a box of about 20,000 links too.

Haha, well, the entire assembly would not print at 1/10th - at least not on a home FFF printer. There would be too many parts too close together, too thin, etc. You would have to spend a lot of hours modifying the tolerances at that scale. Half scale maaaaybe.

What kind of advice do you have for a project like this? I mean this is a large, complicated assembly, and you reverse engineered dozens of parts of varying irregular geometries. I personally would LOVE to undertake something like this, to show people exactly what these machines are capable of. So I would value very much what insight you have on analyzing parts, modeling parts, printing parts, and finishing parts for a large, complex assembly like this.
