It seems like a bunch of companies debuted their own version of a Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) at SHOT Show 2019. Check out our Top 5 new SMG / PCC list from SHOT 2019. There was seriously a lot of them this year. Well the folks over at Tippmann Armory didn’t debut a new PCC, they showed off something even better then some tacticool operator toy.
They released a 1/3 scale version of an 1865 Gatling gun chambered in 9mm. It functions very similar to the real deal 1865 model Gatling Gun. It’s multi-barrelled, hand cranked, fires from the four o’clock position and spent casings drop out the bottom of the gun. And because making everything accept Glock magazines is in vogue right now, it uses Glock mags.

Wait, Tippmann? If that sounds familiar it’s because they’re the same Tippmann that makes paintball guns. These days they’re getting back into the firearms business with their Rolling Block rifles and cool mini Gatling Guns. The street price on the new Tippmann Armory 9mm Gatling Gun hasn’t been officially set as of yet, but expect it to be around $3500 to $4000 (according to one of the reps at Tippmann’s SHOT Show booth) and it should be released within the next few months. I have no practical reason for one of these, but I bet they’d be a blast to shoot at the range.
