    I have a set of drawings for a .22LR version. Saving that project for when I get to fully retire and start doing this stuff strictly for fun.

    That looks nice, like a lot of loving work went into it.

    From the photo I am guessing we are looking at a display at a modeler's gathering...

    Very nice work! Looks like a D&E design? Did you modify the bolts, I believe as designed they have the firing pins in the middle of the bolt.

    Are there any associated prints with this? I would also like to see if it can be modified for a larger round as well.

    1874 Colt, designed by M.E.D. Built by Dale Detrich

    There is a sign on the table beneath the gun. I assume it goes with that one and that there isn't a table full of them.

    Drawings are available from www.modelgatlinggunplans.com for around $39 for a CD of the gun and tripod, $54 for the CD of the gun, tripod and wheeled carriage. Add $8 if you want paper copies. The original designer was the late Doug Schneider.

    I'm getting really, really tired of this broken leg. Normally, I'd be in the shop, and just walk over to where the prints are, and tell who drew and who designed the one I have drawings on. But noooo!

    sigh

    I'll look as soon as I can. I'm supposed to be getting a wheelchair this afternoon. Then to see if it is "rough terrain" enough to make it to the shop. lol

    May have to get my neighbor to blade me a path.
