A "Barrel gun" of my design from my fanfic

Ok, I'll keep this brief. A while back I made a fanfic, and in it the antagonist (Alvin the Treacherous) had a weapon. He stole the design from Hiccup. The weapon can fire 30 arrows (one at a time) very quickly. (I tried to post the fanfic here a while ago, but people didn't like the style it was written in, so I deleted it all. My post should still be there, but the story is gone)

Imagine my surprise when I watched RTTE and I saw an "arrow catapult" being used by the dragon hunters. I took a look at it and I could see no possible way it could work in real life and obey the laws of physics. Now, I'm not professing to be an engineer, but when I made my designs I think it actually CAN work in real life. (DO NOT BUILD ONE)

It's made out of simple, easy-to-find parts on Berk. In my fanfic, every Outcast ship had four of these mounted on the deck. The flagship had ten. So, I refined my designs and am putting this out here to look at and judge.

Dunno what to say here.....

Ok... This was interesting! It makes sense, too- one question, though....

Do you think it would work? I do.
Save the Earth... It's the only planet with donuts!

May the stars watch over you, the dragons roar at the sound of your name, and peace, love and the truth enlighten your heart forever,
May you stay true to your soul, mind and heart. Your choices, opinions and life are solely your own, give only the ones you hold dear to your heart your heart, and all your word. Make the right choices, and tread carefully, and live your life to its very fullest,

I think it will work. It would be a challenge, but Hiccup is smart, he could do it.
