Thanks for you time and consideration.

It would be impossible to build a working unit following the plans.
Every Gat out there is different, no Lego parts.
Parts received from different sources most likely will need to be modified
to fit your unit. Everything needs to be custom fit.

What are your thoughts on the RG-G plans and not being able to complete a build from them. I'm meeting with other folks this week to talk about a group build of several Gatling guns so I'm also interesed.
Do you have a mill and lathe?
If not can you use a friends?
If yes to either of the above then do like bruski suggested and take a course. If a course is not available then look on line for help and get to the mill and lathe and practice. With the threads that are posted here and some help from everyone I think that our group is going to be able to do it. Unless there are major plan problems. Hope to hear more about that.

Important tolerances such as run-out / concentricity, true positioning, and
fit do not exist.
(An example) see the specified tolerance on the Carrier Block.
note the angular tolerance of ±1°. FYI 1/2° in 1 inch = .0087 (not good)
The recommended hex bushing will have run-out .002 to .006, ( true it up )
Radial clearance between cam and Carrier is only .01
I would never press the 3/16 pin in the Carrier Block. Barrel Plate only.

is not drawn correctly, causing some problems.
Also, the chamber depth of .800 is a little short, and limits
the ammo you can use, without sticking.
By adding .02 and an angular transition between chamber and bore, gives more choices.
