(Rare) Accles Brass Magazine Drum for Model 1883 Gatling Gun:
I purchased this item at a large estate sale the description that was giving to me at the time of purchase and the research done by myself was that this item is a rare Accles positive feed magazine drum for a Model 1883 crank firing Gatling gun. This drum magazine is for the 45-70 cartridge and constructed of polish brass and steel, a propeller wheel located between the plates is rotated by cogs on the barrel unit. The magazine is in good condition with no dents or damage that could be seen except for some minor scratches it measures 14in. in diameter by 3in. thick and weighs about 21lbs. I was told that few of these ever hit the market as they are usually with the guns and not for sale. I have explain this item to the best of my ability and will disclose that I am not an expert on this item and have giving out the information to the best of my ability. Thank You...
