Karl Furr & Sons 1/3 Scale Miniature Model 1874 Gatling Gun and Carriage
This is a 1/3 scale functional copy of the Colt-Gatling Model 1874. It is hand marked with manufacturer markings including the date April 22, 1982, on the bottom of the action. "115" is marked on most of the components of the gun and its carriage. It has all the features of a full sized Gatling gun including the plaque with Gatling and Colt markings on the top of the action and a scaled down Broadwell magazine. The carriage measures 18 inches tall at the wheels and 21 inches wide across the axle and is constructed of hardwood with brass hardware.
This is a 1/3 scale bronze barrel James 6 pounder field cannon made by Karl Furr in Orem, Utah back in the 1980’s. Karl Furr is the man who made what I call the “Rolls Royce” of miniature Gatling guns. Very few people know that he also made a few miniature cannons. The bronze barrel is 22″ long from cascabel to muzzle. The bore is 1 1/4″. The wheels are 19 3/8″ in diameter. Overall length is about 40 inches, and width is about 26″.
