Upcoming New Products

Replica Model 1877 Gatling gun with ten "Musket Length" (32 inch) barrels in .45-70 with Bruce Adapter Feed or 40 round magazines; oscillator and tripod.

The Model 1877 was an improvement over the earlier models in that it had an improved feed hopper and a faster pitch to the worm and worm gear for an increased rate of fire. In addition, the Model 1877 was the last model to be equipped with the oscillator mechanism. While the Model 1877 was designed to use the 40 round magazine, in 1881 the "Bruce Adapter Feed" was designed and patented to adapt the guns designed for the 40 round magazine to the new feed system. 

Army Model 1895 Gatling Gun

Standard Finish


Our standard finish is how the Gatling gun looked when accepted by the Army "back in the day".

The 1874 - 1892 Standard Finish

All steel parts, frame, barrels, screws and so on, are left "in the white" or "bright" with no protective finish such as browning or bluing. However, we use a commercially available product called "Renaissance", which is a microcrystalline wax developed for museum use, to protect the bare steel. The barrels and the frame are polished to 240, and the bronze parts are polished to 320 but are not buffed to mirror finish. Tripod legs are sanded, stained, and finished with Tung oil.  Metal parts of the Camel gun tripod are bronze, polished to 320, while the metal parts of the "musket length" tripods are painted black.


The 1895-1903 Standard Finish

The barrels are polished to 240 and browned, the frame is polished to 240 and blued, and all external bronze parts are polished to 320 and painted olive drab. All other steel parts are left in the white but protected with "Renaissance". Tripod legs are sanded, stained, and finished with Tung oil.  Metal tripod parts are painted black and the "aiming lever" is browned.
