Made by Colt’s Manufacturing Co c.1883~90′s. .45-70 Gov 104-round Accles drum magazine, ten rotary barrels with their own firing mechanisms, rapid-fire hand cranked repeating gun. These Gatling feeding systems are so sexy. This one had a spiral groove from which cartridges would be fed into the gun by a rotor moved by the action of said gun itself, meaning the feeding mechanism was free of the constraints of fickle gravity or spring tension.
