I am looking for the next retirement project. Does anybody have or know of a good source of drawing or plans? I have the RGG plans. Not really what I am looking for. The books on Amazon don''t bring up anything either.
There appear to be no original or complete or accurate plans available. Your best bet is to buy an original, make plans, and build from them. You can sell the Gatling afterwards to recover that cost and sell plans if they are any good.
So what is the average price of an original Gatling gun?

You must be married, as we used to say in this shop "that''m married so no extra money....
I know I have a set of plans for a 1/2 scale Gatling gun which uses .22lr. I am having a hard time pulling it up though. If this may be helpful let me know and I''s copy of Colts plans for a gun in 30/40 Krag.
At one time I modeled all three sets of plans in a cad program I no longer have.
It appeared that all of the plans have errors that require fitting and adjustment to produce a working arm.
The Colt plans are the hardest to work with simply because the are a bit fuzzy, dimensions are hard to read, or missing.
I assume it was common to measure drawings and work from shop notes in that era.
Its also a set of plans for a low production item, near the end of its lifecycle.
It may never have gotten the engineering attention that other products got.
I have only encountered one antique Gatling for sale and the asking price was $225,000.
I have seen guns listed on the net and auction estimates for less, but still well into the 6 figure range.
Working scale models and full size replicas are usually above 5 figures.

Didn''m a little surprised that no one has made plans of the bulldog seems like the better design.

The bull dog is a later design and incorporates a lot of improvements not found on earlier guns, but its not what was in the Hollywood westerns.
The open frame 10 barrel 45/70 with a stick magazine on a wheeled carriage is what folks think of when a they think of a Gatling gun.
That''s patents around the world.
How many of us have seen in person a Gatling with a full brass shroud around the barrels, or a drum magazine.
What about a Bruce feed, it was very popular, but I have yet to encounter one (not that I am looking hard for one).
Steel framed guns, rather than brass were used by some countries.Reply With Quote Swing N Slide Plans Download Firefoxhow to Swing N Slide Plans Download Firefox for for 1 last update 2020/07/05

Colt makes a reproduction of the 1877 gat. Very nice for 50K. Not sure that I will make mine with all the brass or fully encased. Just seems like a better design than the ten barrel side cranks. No gears plus less parts to make
