Gatling Gun Replica - Brass and WoodGatling USA 1883 - Hartford, CT OOOOOOOOOO Original Gatling Gun patented in 1862 Named for it's originator, Dr. Richard J. Gatling, this well-known gun was not the first machine gun created, as is sometimes thought, but certainly the name recognition is still t The Gatling gun did not see much action during the Civil war for many reasons, a few being it's bulky awkwardness in the field (it was a horse-drawn weapon); the huge amount of ammunition it required, and questions about its reliability. The Gatling was a heavy, hand-cranked, 10-barrel weapon, later replaced by the automatic, single barrel Maxim gun. The Army adopted the Gatling gun and used it to more success in the Plains Indians and Spanish-American Wars. The replica weighs 3 lbs. and measures 15" x 10" x 7" The only part I know is missing is the amunition hopper, which sits in a spot just above the plate reading "Gatling USA 1883". Otherwise, this is a clean, good-looking miniature copy of the original Gatling Gun! * * * * * * Please email me with any questions and read my return policy carefully before bidding.
