Fine reproduction Gatling gun with 31" ten-bbl cluster, mounted in a brass housing with a steel frame. The top cover is for gravity donut shaped brass Accles drum magazine. Gun is mounted in a cast brass yoke on a brass base which is attached to a brass bound wood carriage. The trail and most fittings are all brass. Gun has traversing mechanism with elevation screw with steel handle. Contemporary manufactured carriage was produced by previous owner and while being very functional, is rather rudimentary but presents itself very well. Top rear of the gun’s brass housing has a reproduction 3-3/4" rnd brass plaque with the same markings as an orig Colt gun. Right side of receiver rail is marked "Thunder Valley Machine Co. Clinton, Ohio. SN 1006 (6 of 6)". The manufacturer took some engineering liberties when designing and constructing these fine reproduction Gatling guns. This is a fine reproduction and a good representative piece for re-enactments or simply for shooting. CONDITION: Is good overall, and showing no evidence of ever having been fired. However, brass components have tarnished with age. Bores remain as new. Action an mechanics appear to operate properly. Carriage is in fair condition as steel rimmed wheels appear to be of 19th century manufacture and have suffered wood rot and corrosion from exposure to the elements, but seem to be serviceable.
