  1. I saw something very similar at Bud’s Guns in Sevierville last week. I’ll have to go back and see if it’s not the same model. Old Timers and all that, ya know.

    Are the gatlings legal to own? If not, why not? It isn’t automatic. Wouldn’t that surprise the zombies coming down the road?

      Yes, the hand-cranked Gatling is perfectly legal to own, as each barrel is its own semi-auto gun and the crank is the trigger.

      Unlike as shown in several movies, a broken firing pin just means that barrel doesn’t fire. A live round will be ejected.

      You can still find a weird kit that converts two Ruger 10/22’s into a two barrel .22 cal Gatling gun.

      The Bulldog above is a fun expensive weapon in .45-70. Other companies sell kits for making your own in other calibers.

      It is illegal to hook up an electric motor to one, though. So, well, don’t get caught with that fanbelt hooked up to the pulley that you put on the crankshaft.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
