These extremely high quality reproduction Gatling Guns are made by an individual who works from the original Colt blueprints and all parts interchange with the originals. They are exact replicas and perfectly finished with all polished surfaces flat and true. He makes these at a rate of about two per year and they are almost works of art. This is a reproduction of the Model 1874 in .45/70 caliber. It has 10 tapered round barrels with hexagonal sections at the front for removal. The barrels are 32" long and are perfectly blued. The barrels are joined with a circular brass disk near the muzzle and also at the breech. They rotate on a steel axis. Head space for the barrels is adjusted by an nut located at the front of the axis. The body of the gun is made of highly polished brass. The top of the body is engraved "CAL. 45." A circular cast plaque is attached to the top of the body and contains the patent dates and the manufacturer's name as the originals do. The rails for the gun are made of steel and have a crinkle type paint applied. An oscillating mechanism is present on this gun as is a screw traverse system. Elevation is by means of a large wheel located at the rear of the yoke. The yoke has a black finish. The gun is mounted on a tripod with walnut legs and black steel fittings. The gun is in perfect working order. The feed mechanism present on top of the body is a Bruce type. Serial number is 052. Overall condition is new in the shipping crates.
