Would SWAG it was original for war wagon, because there were few reproductions made at that time. In the 60s Surplus ones could be had fairly cheap for movie rent,, But That would be one heck of a cool research job to find out the Origin and now resting place of the "War Wagon's " Gatling
IIRC, the "War Wagon" Gatling was an original 1874 Gatling, owned by a movie prop house specializing in firearms. It was, I believe, also used in "Rooster Cogburn" with John Wayne and Katherine Hepburn. I seem to recall it being sold several years ago, and that it was described as having the bores almost completely shot out from firing all the blanks in several movies.
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
