This is my newest turret; the M197 20mm minigun.
It's a 20mm autocannon that would normally be mounted on an AH-1 Cobra gunship, but I made a version mounted on a pole with an ACOG sight for killing zombies or whatever else is fun to shoot. It's manned by a gunner who stands in a pod behind the starting position of the handles, if you can't find it use smartsnap to find the physics box. Aiming is done the usual gyro style way, so it will point in the same direction you look.
Right Click - Spool it up.
Left Click - Fire. (Must be spooled)
Space - Use the ACOG sight. (Picture 2)
And of course look around to aim.
-Shiny, high polished barrels.
-3x-4x fisheye ACOG sight.
-Custom sounds for spooling and firing.
-Ejecting shells.
-Other stuff you might notice that I was too lazy to mention.
You need wire and phx3 for it to work, and GCX if you want it to shoot stuff. Otherwise you'll have to hook up your own crappy wire turret with no good effects. It's in addon format.
Anyway, have fun with this thing! It has a ton of detail compared to most turrets, and it makes almost no lag since there's only 4 moving props including the base.
Don't take my credit please, even though every time I say this somebody claims my stuff as their own.

This download looks like an addon. You need to extract the downloaded zip and put the addon folder in your Garry's Mod addons folder. You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • M197 <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc

Don't know where the Garry's Mod folder is or how to extract zip files? See more useful installation tips.
