I saw an reproduction of an early gun that fired black powder precussion cap cases (non reciprocating bolts) go for $3K. A lot depends on the detail and polish in the gun. I have always love Gatlings, I just couldn't afford to buy one. Stretching the cost out as I build it it is my only chance. Even then I get grief from my wife who thinks I have tomany guns already. As much as I try, while she will go shoot with me, she isn't really pro gun.

I should add that I always wanted a Tippman mini belt fed. It wasn't until Lakeside released a limited number of kits that I was able to get one for less than half what a finished gun would sell for. My Gatling will be like that.

Did you happen to catch the featurette/extra that's on the 3:10 to Yuma Blu-Ray (the Russell Crowe/Christian Bale re-do)? IIRC it was about a 15 minute special on the Gatling gun they used on the Wells Fargo stagecoach at the beginning of the movie and the full size replica they had to build when they were flipping the stagecoach.

I was trying to find it on Youtube, but doesn't seem like anyone has uploaded it (or it's been taken down). I believe it's an extra on the disc.

I think the buyer overpaid. I might just have my buddy find out what dealer cost is on one of them just to see what they are really worth when I go to his shop tomorrow.

I love the little beltfed replicas. If I could make a handcrank for it similar to the full size 1919 version I would grab one. A guy has one for $4k on the Lakeside forum I've been mulling over.

Diamonds are usually a good distraction in my house. I usually add a grand to just about every major "me-related" purchase I make. Truck, boat, bikes, trips, Gatling guns. (I wish)

Last time I got her a set of diamond earrings, she hardly even noticed the new motorcycle in the garage.

Yes, but it has been a while. I may have to dig that disk out again.

One post on the Lakeside forum has a handcrank. He even posted a PDF of the plans, (pretty simple, I saved a copy of it) it fits between the T&E and the gun with no modifications to the gun. If I wasn't in CA I would have already made one. I just have to wait til I can move to a free state, if there are any left by the time I retire. PM me if you can't find it, I'll send you a copy.

I had one! 45 cal with percussion caps or conversion units for 45 long colt drop in catridges. 200 pounds on a tripod, did not buy the Carriage mount.

I ownhjed it for some years, it sat in the middle of my living room when not in use...my wife had to try to explain that during the Bunko games!

And after the inital fun of saying I owned it was over, I found very little practical use or even plinking without a LOT of work.! imagine you have say, 200 percussion units, two minutes later you get to start the very long process of loading again! and the conversin units were a $1 each to buy.

Bought it for $2800 sold it for $7,000! I was actually a dealer on paper for a while to get the discount below the $3500...

Buy her a car or a pair of titties, then tell her right after you give them to her. Worked great for me

Put the crank handle and 1000 rounds of ammo in a box, wrap it and put her name on the tag. In my house that'd get me an invitation to join her on the range with it and an invitation to join her in bed without it. Ya gotta marry the right girl...

When I bought my cannon, my wife just wanted to shoot it too. Had to buy her a uniform of her own at the first reenactment. She's in the background on the Mythbuster's episodes too.

Every few months my wife asks me if there is anything she has not seen yet, she doesn't bother to ask "how much was that?" anymore. At most she says "when did you get that?" my response "you know i have no concept of time anymore" haha

One thing she does ask a lot is "when do I get to shoot that?" ..keeper.
