1 1/2 years later the project is finished

Post by Rolland » Fri Jan 01, 2010 2:43 pm

I finally finished my Gatling gun last night, (my idea of a new years party).
I started it a year ago last July thinking it would be a part time project. I have no idea how much time I have in it but its a lot. It is made from RG-G plans. I did all the work other than the wood portion of the wheel I had a wheel rite make them for me. It is in .22 caliber.
ok lets see if these will fit

A simply fantastic job! Is this something that can be fired?
