Just curious. Belt-fed, of course.

I would, if I had the coin available.

If I found one that worked relieably...... HELL YEA!

Who wouldnt?

No. The only way to legally make it is as a hand crank unit, and I'd be too tempted to slap an electric motor on it to make it full auto and therefore end up in jail.

Thus, no. I would not buy one because I am weak, and would be tempted by the dark side.

I would do it, and be smart enough NOT to tell people about it.

If Mike Dillon made a gatling gun I could buy for $2000, I'd break my wrist getting out my checkbook to pay for it.

Too late.

You fell into my trap.

HAHA!!

You can build a 1919A4 and buy a crankfire for it for about half that. More parts around too.

While we're at it, I've got another very serious, realistic scenario. Who here... would not like a bajillion dollars?

Yes, but it doesn't have five spinning barrels. Actually, the tribarrel would run a bit under $2K, the five about $3K we think.

If it was belt-fed would it be a gatling gun? Didn't they all use magazines?
Link Posted: 2/26/2006 1:25:01 AM EDT
I’ve always though that Mike Dillon should build a civilian version of his little buzz guns. If you milled off the motor housing and mounted a hand crank, you would have the world’s best tax free toy.

I spend too much on ammo to keep my semi M4geries fed, so no thanks. Still like to see them legal, though.

There were several feed systems through the years. Feed strips, a sort of primitive belt feed, were one option but were not reliable. Modern ones sometimes use belt feed.

ETA: I've checked, and yes, it can be made in Blueberry.

So what are you waiting for???


BTW I'd like it even better if it was in .22LR. Then I could REALLY afford to blast away.

2000 bucks eh? Who do I make the check out to???
Link Posted: 2/26/2006 5:46:49 AM EDT
Id love to have one but the BATF would jump on this this and if you have any kinda motor in the house...IE: drill, dremel, washing machine, fan, automobile, lawnmower, dishwasher, a prostetic arm with a gerbal in a running ball...they would charge you with possesing a MG....

but yes Id love to have one
Link Posted: 2/26/2006 5:46:54 AM EDT
I want to buy the handcrank model and then....a bit later.....the electric motor kit for it.

How about one in 7.62x39mm?
Link Posted: 2/26/2006 5:59:37 AM EDT
I would like to get one in 38spec/357mag or 9mm. That way you still have a little ump at a cheaper cost than a rifle round. What was the firing rate of the orginal gat guns?

WWW.GATLINGGUNS.COM IF YOU WANT A 22LR gatlin this is the one I have love it. And it come with a ATF letter .

Valkyrie arms has got a workinh protype of a handcranked "minigun" in the works...check out the latest Small Arms Review.

that's not exactly a gatling gun, although they are cool.

Er, me, if it all works out. .22LR is considerably easier and could probably be done for under $1500, but don't quote me on that just yet. They're already available, though, so I figured .223 would be a better place to start.

I'm just waiting to move ~11,000 miles again. Don't mind me.

OKGuy, did you mean .COM or .NET? RG-G is at the .net address -- nice people, beautiful Gatlings, looks like they've gone up a wee bit in the last few years, though. $10,900 for a fully finished gun, ouch.

yep, there is a market for such things.
Link Posted: 2/26/2006 10:00:56 AM EDT
I have seen the crank activated 10-22 dual gun setups, and would LOVE to have the same deal but with 2 AK's..... all you need is that and 2 75 round drums to have loads of fun.


I would be happy to pay $400-500 just for the cradles, crank, and trigger mechanism that I could mount my own AK's in.

I think that would sell better than a gatling gun style setup any day of the week.

You mean chute fed. You cant get the rounds fast enough into the gun with a regular belt or magazine.

now those are fuckin SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET

a bit pricey, though.
Link Posted: 2/26/2006 10:06:14 AM EDT
I'd probably go for it given the fianancial resources for the gun and ammo, though it is wholly impractical, but such is the ARFCOM way
