U.S. Armament Corp of Ephrata, Pa., “1877 Bulldog Gatling” gun.
Elderly owner is downsizing his collection, no more crew served weapons.
This gun is available at VERY significant saving over others listed elsewhere.
Chambered in the original 45-70 Govt. Caliber, maximum firing rate of 1000 rounds per minute.
The Bulldog is equipped with a Bruce Feed Gravity Feed system (not a magazine) which hold 40 rounds in parallel and is fed from feed blocks. The Bruce Feed may be continuously replenished by a trained assistant gunner while the The Bulldog is in use, for extended firing sessions.
It's five 18 ¼ inch barrels are fully enclosed in a cylindrical housing, with an overall length of 34 inches. The Bulldog was the first rear hand-crank gun that Gatling ever produced.
Each turn of the rear crank produces a complete revolution of the 5 barrel unit, firing the gun 5 times.
The spent cartridges are automatically ejected from the gun.
There are adjustments at the rear for windage and elevation.
The tripod mount is made of brass and iron components, and legs are solid ash wood.
The Bulldog weighs 135 pounds, and the tripod assembly also weighs 135 pounds. The original 1877 Bulldog was tested for accuracy and scored 996 direct hits out of 1000 rounds at a distance of 500 yards.
This particular one-owner gun SN# 4X was purchased new, removed from it's factory transit chest, admired, and put back into it's set of three chest for the next several years.
It has never been fired except for the factory testing.
Condition is mint, as factory delivered.
A set of phenolic pads for the tripod feet are included to prevent marring a floor during display, they also raise the guns height for more comfortable firing afield.
Gun is also for sale locally.
