I know it's not a S&W, but this is cool! A customer had this transferred into our shop for her to pick up, and we all got to check it out. It's a 9mm Gatling gun. The barrels were all under 16" so it is classed as a pistol/revolver, and not a rifle. Seems funny, but that's the way it was classified by the manufacturer.

OK. Who’s going to start on the lack of “knockdown power” of a 9mm?

I have seen video on one and looks like they would be some serious fun. Best have an automated progressive press to keep that one fed.

She has a lot of jack. I looked at them before, ,kind of neat but with ammo the way it is, if you don't handload you'd better have really deep pockets. I think they are a couple thou to purchase. Me, I'd rather have a Thompson replica.

In my view, basically a rich person's toy. Not much good for anything except making noise and lightening your wallet. My wallet is much more discretionary.

It is legal because you have to hand-crank it with one hand while holding the tiller with the other.

Each round is therefore individually fired by physical action of the shooter, and therefore is NOT an "automatic weapon" under US law.

Where "bump stocks" fall afoul of a strict interpretation of the definition is that the shooter does not have to flex his trigger finger (or move any other muscle or body part) to fire after the first shot, therefore the weapon is firing from the recoil of the weapon pulling against the fixed finger of the shooter, and is thus "automatic".

The original ruling that it was allowable was based on a very loose reading of the definition, where the fact that the trigger moved to fire each round made it "semi-automatic' - ignoring that the shooter was not doing anything to move the trigger after the first shot.

Can you imagine how this thing will be twisting the deep state minions responsible for rules interpretation on NFA versus GCA firearms? The video is well worth watching...

For the price of admission, I'd expect something other that Chinese made wheelbarrow tires on cheesy rims....

The steel wheels are stamped "Made in the USA" with city, state, ZIP code. I have fondled one up close and personal but did not fire it. Dealer cost is about $3,500 and it was a door prize at local Ducks Unlimited banquet for the 'heavy hitter' of the night, business owner and his work crew. 50% of employees were "bringing ammo to work tomorrow."
