  "Probably the best of the Gatling Guns, the Bulldog enjoyed a considerable sale in the U.S. and abroad." -The Gatling Gun, by Wahl and Toppel
Dr. Richard Gatling
      Collector’s Fact
The U.S. Army purchased 17 Colt Model 1877 "Bulldog" Gatling Guns, serial numbers 190 and 203-218. This rare Gatling Gun, serial number 204, is one of these incredibly rare and historic
U.S. Inspected firearms.
    CONDITION: Exceptionally fine overall
with a highly attractive aged patina on the untouched original brass, tripod with minor scuffs, dings and scratches associated with typical handling and storage, and a pleasing dark aged patina on the iron. Certainly a museum quality piece of late 19th century U.S. militaria that is missing from even the most advanced public or private collections. Provenance: The George Moller Collection. Estimate: 225,000 - 375,000
