Gatling Pistol

Over the past few months I've been working on a little project - a Gatling pistol. My daughter has enjoyed steam punk for a number of years now; over 10 I believe. In fact this past May we attended the World of Steam Expo up in Michigan. Over the years I have made her several additions to her costume: a holster for her pistol, glowing test tubes, and a book purse. Since I play Deadlands and sell my AmmoCounters I thought it would be nice to make a Gatling pistol for myself. So here it is.

I began with the grip. It was modeled on a Remington 1875 Army pistol that I had the design schematics to. By using the dimensions for an actual gun I think it has a more realistic feel. The Gatling portion is based on art from the Savage World's core rulebook and Deadlands.

Since I'm a woodworker and not a metalworker the gun is made primarily from hardwoods. The barrels are brass tubing, along with brass screws and a piece of brass sheeting.

The holster took a bit of work since I wanted it open to view the gun.

Here are the results.

That is neat. Does it have a clockwork burst capability ot just single action?
