'''Simkin glider gun''' is a glider gun, found by [[Michael Simkin]] on April 28, [[:Category:Patterns found in 2015|2015]]. It consists of a [[Herschel]] running in two period-60 [[conduit]]s. In terms of its 36 cells it is the smallest known gun, sharing the record with the [[Gosper glider gun]]. Moreover, in the double-barreled, as well as the [[pseudo-period]], [[boat-bit]] form it is the absolute record holder.
