Colt 1877 Bulldog Gatling Gun

    Colt is now manufacturing a fully functioning replica of the 1877 Bulldog Gatling Gun. It fires .45-70 cartridges at up to 800 rounds per minutes (the speed depends on how fast you can crank the handle). It is an incredibly beautiful piece of machinery and worked flawlessly.

    The gun weighs about 250 lbs.
