Looks impossible to really shoulder fire, assuming you're not a mech.

It's a heavy machinegun) So it needs to be mounted.

I think he likes it and wants to know if it portable. I like the design myself although rotating barrels every change of magazine seems to be a bit high. Plus adding the extra area for failure and maintenance just to keep your barrels at room temperature, I don't know if I would use it. Still looks awesome though

According to history notes, and practice of using machineguns, their greeatest problem is barrel overheating. And machinegunner is most vulnerable when changing it.

I'm not saying it's a bad idea just I thought every 100 rounds is a high rotation. Do the barrels come off individually or as a unit for cleaning?

Barrels can be easily separated from rotating block.
