The gatling is almost done. Need to prime and paint it. I chose a model 1865 1-inch caliber because it was mounted on a regular artillery carriage and only had six barrels. The chamber casing is longer than an actual gatling; this is so because I created the casing by sawing a 12-pound Napolean gun barrel at the mountings. I could have sawed it shorter and created new mountings, but I wanted to get the gun finished. The barrels also are longer, but I did this simply to make the gun more imposing in the game for which it was built.
