Hi guys just checking in for the first time. Been wanting to own and build a Gatlin every since a machinist/gunsmith friend of mine built a full size, fully functional 45-70 and I got to witness and actually cranked a mag thru her!   a few years later I met Paul (RG&G) at Raton NM and got to see his little 22  Gatling in action .........Got "The Bug" !

Firearms, shooting and gunsmithing is a life time pursuit. I graduated Gunsmithind school back in the 80's, but made my living in construction since. I have very limited Machining experience. I have done a lot of research, acquired some RG&G plans.  purchased a small lathe and Mill and am acquiring tooling and materials  as I go. I'm sure plenty of mistakes and re do's on the horizon but It sure makes it a lot less intimidating, knowing there's other guys with the same Bug !

 

Thanks for being here, this is an amazing resource. 

 

Mike
