Dr. Gatlings Infernal Device.

Early electrified variants.

The November 15, 1890 issue of Scientific American contained an article on the Crocker-Wheeler Co.'s
development for the US Navy. Article and illustration scanned from The Gatling Gun, Paul Wahl and Don
Toppel (1965), ARCO Publishing edition 1978.






Dr. Gatling's Patent #502,185 for an integral electric drive version:

Camel Gatling.

A popular illustration from the late-19th century, however there is no evidence that the gun was ever used in such a fashion.    :-\
Rather Camel Gun was the name attached to the short-barreled Model 1874 for marketing purposes.

Pity the poor camel if they had actually used it in that fashion.  :smiley:

I watched the movie Jonah Hex last week, it had the 'mother-of-all-gatling-guns'.  The cannon balls were as big as basket balls.   ;D ;D ;D

Speaking of big gatlings, I would love to see a model or conversion for the T249 Vigilante:

Take that new AFV Club M108 or the old Italeri M108 kit and give it a Gatling Gun make over?
