These Gatling guns are functional in the sense that when you pull the trigger, the barrels spin and it makes lots of noise. A playing card has been added to add a cool sound effect and also reminds people of when they were a kid and they put cards in their bike spokes to sound like something else. I wanted to capture that same emotion. It does not shoot any projectiles. That would be fun but no, not with these.
This is a great prop for any Steampunk outfit, diesel punk, etc. and always gets lots of compliments and photograph requests.
This is also cool because it is made from about 90% recycled or reclaimed parts. It is a part of my "Green Steam" concept of building functional Steampunk art from recycled parts, flea market finds and repurposed items. The battery that powers the motor is rechargeable so you'll save on battery costs as well.
The shipping may seem too much but this gun is nearly 4' long and will come with a custom made wooden box for shipping. This will also prove very handy when transporting to Steampunk events, etc. It is not a heavy gun to carry, just fairly large. For reference see the photo of me holding it in this listing, I'm 6'4".
