IF the Gatling is 50 yra old, it would be a C&R. If you have an ORIGINAL Gatling made prior to 1899, it is antIque firearm, and not under the 1968 Gun Control act.

the old originals are expensive because they are a super rare highly collectable item.

the modern manufacture ones are pricey because they are actually very complex devices with lots of barrels, lots of materials and lots of machine work.
