A little while back I mentioned in a post that I was working on a Gatling gun. I was asked to post photos but declined thinking it would be considered off subject. A moderator “Kvom” advised that a Gatling gun post was acceptable, so I posted a few photos of the project in progress without any complaints. The project is now complete and I would like to present it here.

The American ATF does not consider the Gatling as a machine gun as each shot is loaded cocked and fired mechanically by hand. Replace the crank handle with a motor and you get a room at the gray-bar motel.

I bought both the DE Gatling plans and the RG-G Gatling gun plans. I went with the RG-G plans because the action closely resembled the original gun. I built the action closely to the plans but deviated from them on much of the rest of the build. The RG-G plans do not look much like the original and it was in this area that I made changes. The RG-G plans include a plan for a Tripod mount and a Carriage mount. I had photos of a rare navel mount and so I went with that because it will take up less space on the display shelf.

Making the parts was fairly straight forward without any really complicated parts to make. The devil was in how close tolerance the action needs to be if you want it to function well. The other challenge is that most of the action can not be viewed. I probably assembled and disassembled this thing a couple hundred times fitting all the parts. I don''t scale well is the force required to fire the round. It takes about the same amount of force to fire a rim-fire .22 as it does a center-fire 45-70. The torque needed to rotate the the moving parts is slight but pulling the firing pin''s easily as reliable as the original, unfortunately that''s saddle horn. The barrels were shortened to save weight.

Weight: 24.5 pounds.

Length Overall: 22.5 inches

Barrel Length: 13 inches

Caliber: .22LR

Magazine capacity: 20

The original model fired a 45-70 round. Colt and others built Gatling''t think any were ever mounted to a Camel. Probably difficult to train them to keep their heads down.

I will make several posts of photos of the completed gun and some of internal parts. This may take some time as I live in the country and my connection is verrrrry sloooow. And yes the gun is looking a bit dirty, I''d like to have a go at myself but unfortunately where I live I''s never going to happen.

The price of the brass alone looks daunting!

Excellent work, I’ve toyed with the idea of doing one myself (I’ve got a box with twenty 16” .22LR barrels in it I bought at a yard sale), but I’m not so sure the boss would appreciate me spending a good part of her grocery money on the materials.

Beautiful piece of work, and if you post a link to any video of shooting it I, as well as most others, would be most appreciative.

Never mind that it''s awesome workmanship and I''ve also been toying with the idea of making one - need to check local regulations - which I''t allow it.
Drool.......

Excellent Work!
I noticed the Plan Title box shows Conifer, Co. in address. Had to look at his site, turns out he lives just south of me.

That is one impressive piece of work. I have had a big fascination in gatling guns from when I was a kid watching westerns on tv. I built this little rascal (6 inches long) probably 15-20 years ago just for fun to sit on a desk. Definitely not as neat or complex as yours and does not shoot. Made completely of brass and on a tripod.

Nice job.
Just a few questions.
Did you solder or acraglass the barrel liners?
- what was the reason why you settled on the one you used?

Did you machine the chamber or use a chamber reamer?

I agree that the spring tension on the firing pin is the same as the full scale model. Was there a noticable or objectionable amount of force required to rotate the shorter crank?

Thanks,
-Piper

I used DOM steel for the barrels as it already has a hole through it of almost the correct size. I then used a ream to clean the hole to the correct size. I used loctite 609 to secure the rifled sleeve into the barrel. I first plugged the sleeve with wax. The fuzzy photo shows a bit of tape that formed a well. After starting the sleeve in the barrel I kept the well full as I inserted the sleeve twisting it as it went in. This insured the sleeve was bonded to the barrel its entire length. Hint, before it cures loctite can be easily cleaned off with vinegar. Solder would work but it would be difficult to know if it supported the sleeve along the entire length and I didn't want to distort the barrels with heat.

Turning the crank is hard when cocking the hammers back, to make things worse more than one spring is in play at once. I used springs supplied by "RG-G the designer" . Seating the round is also troublesome, I chambered the barrels a little deep to help relive the force required. I used a .223 chamber reamer. The weak point of the gun is the gears that drive everything. During construction it is best to work on just one bolt at a time until it runs smooth. The most troublesome part is the extractor, I am still having reliability problems with them. Until I get that sorted out I am only loading the magazine with 10 rounds to avoid trying to load a round into an occupied chamber.

Hope this helps

Mark
