Measuring about knee high, this is the most deluxe functional model miniature that Furr offered. Most were purchased with tripods, but this one instead has a beautiful, wheeled carriage mount. Marked with a “Colt” nameplate on the top as well as the model. Note the attractiveness of this metal and wood carriage and think of the time and effort that must have gone into its construction. This makes this model all the more attractive to the observer and also eases the movement of it from place to place. According to the consignor, Furr is the only person to be granted full access to the Gatling gun museum and was allowed to take detailed measurements and photographs. His reproductions are exact. This specimen was completely restored by Doug Furr in early 2018 and has not been fired since. This is an unsigned specimen, and Furr thought that this is the only gun that got out of the factory unsigned. Included are two videos on a thumb drive of Doug Furr and consignor explaining maintenance, loading, and operation. The Furr Gatling guns incorporate the highest standards of quality fit and finish and are works of the human craftsman’s art. Faithfully reproduced in miniature during the 1970s these guns are fully functional like the originals, and one can access the mechanism for cleaning just like the originals. Measures 21" from floor to top of magazine, 28" from muzzle to end of trail, and 23" outer hub to outer hub. This will transfer as a modern firearm. CONDITION: Overall appearance and finish is near excellent original finish throughout with some tarnishing in places. Wood is near excellent. Mechanics are crisp and positive. Bores are shiny and bright. Of more than dozen which we have offered over the years, this ensemble on its metal carriage tops them all. A great piece for an office or a den, and more than just a decoration. JWK 2023-12-94
