Because it won't continue to shoot if the trigger is pressed and the action is manual.
Put an alectric motor to do the trick and you'll have a problem.

But what do I know, I just gather my US firearms knowledge reading the GD

Because the triggers are actuated once for every bullet via the crank. Cranks fitted to work with a trigger are not considered to be machine guns by the ATF.

So theoretically theres a market for crank driven gatling guns?

There was (or is) a company that sold (or sells) the stand, brackets and crank gizmo. All you had to do was to add the two 10/22 and assemble it. I have not seen an ad for thes kits in a long while. Before the ban, there was always one at every gun show. Gee, didn't I just sound old. Oh well I am going to take my geritol and go to bed now.

There's a site that sells blueprints and kits for building your own rotary .22LR gatling guns that look like the original weapons. Use 50-rnd stick magazines or 100-rnd donut magazines.

When SHTF, just hook an electric motor to one of those suckers, add on some servo motors and a camera, and you've got yourself a full-auto remote-control minigun for a sentry turret. Bushwhack trespassers and invaders without leaving the comfort of your bunker.
