Gatling Gun Model 1865 Animation

This animation shows the mechanism used in the 1865 model Gatling Gun. It is taken from Richard J Gatling’s Patent of that year. The 1865 model exploited the improved quality and availability of metallic cartridges at the end of the American Civil war. This animation has no commentary or sound.
