History

The Gatling gun was invented by Richard Gatling in 1861 and was patented in 1862. Gatling’s noble intention was to show how futile war is by displaying the horrific carnage possible by his weapon. The 1862 version of the Gatling gun featured reloadable steel chambers, used percussion caps, and was prone to jamming. Once Gatling redesigned the weapon to use metallic cartridges, it was bought and purchased by the United States Army.

Design

The original Gatling gun used six rotating barrels around a central shaft turned by a hand crank and fired loose metal cartridge ammunition using a gravity feed system as a hopper – which is where the true innovation took place. The rotating barrels also helped cool the weapon as it fired. The grandfather of the modern machine gun, the Gatling gun is capable of firing around 200 rounds per minute.

By 1893 the Gatling gun was adapted to take the new .30 Army smokeless cartridge and the new M1893 model was capable of firing 800-900 rounds per minute. Once an electric motor and belt were attached, Gatling showed the weapon could fire bursts up to 1,500 RPM. In 1903, the US Army converted their M1900 guns into .30 Army to match the standard at the time. The later model, the M1903-06 was an M1903 covered to .30-06. After 45 years of service, all models were declared obsolete by the U.S. Army in 1911.
