At the machine gun shoot at Knob Creek last weekend, a vender had several Gardner guns, and their newest offering, an 1877 model of the Gatling called a Bulldog.  These guns featured a fully enclosed bronze casting over the barrels and breech, and had a rear crank.  This gun had a rate of fire of a thousand rounds per minute.  The Bruce feed, like the Gardner, enabled loaders to keep the gun topped up so the gunner didn't have to stop to reload.  These guns are offered by the U.S. Armament Corps, in Ephrata, Pennsylvania.

James Daly writes an interesting blog chock full of military history and his thoughts on the matter.  One of his latest blogs centers on the British Machine Gun Corps from 1914-1918.  He lists some men who were casualties and where they served.  His is an interesting view from a British historians perch.
