    I've shot one, truly neat fun. I've seen, but never shot, one for two AKs, drum mags and all. I looked, but couldn't find a pic of it. I know there is at least one dual .30 M1 carbine version in FL, too.

    Now we just need to design something based around 6 AR15s with drum mags, with electronically synchronized sequential battery powered trigger actuators built into the lowers. I guess that would probably be a *airquotes* ma-chine gun.

    I've seen them on Cabelas Oline site before (Cabela's -- Gatling Gun Kit).

    My understanding is that a Gatling type gun is legal as long as it's completely manually operated. Once you have any type of assist (whether electric or mechanical) it's considered a Machine Gun. They even make little finger Gatling attachments for many guns.

    Yep, very popular to do the 1919 clones that way.

    IIRC the Gatlin was actually 10 guns mounted together and each was fired by a single action of pulling the trigger but using a crank to turn the device that pulled the trigger. Each barrel had its own bolt and firing pin too. So it technically is not a machine gun

    Looks like it would be quite the blast. I was hoping for something at least belt fed though...

    I am trying to decide between a Historicly correct Gatling, black powder cannon or a real katana as my dream almost useless weapon. (Practicality wise.)

    Hoss you may of won me over to the Gatling.
