This is a rare original Bruce feed for a Colt Gatling gun. It consists of a brass frame that holds a swinging bar with a pair of machined slots that would accept the cartridges. The frame is marked "US SPRINGFIELD ARMORY, JUNE, 1886 / PAT. SEP. 20, 1881 &OCT. 3, 1883".
Condition: Very fine. The iron components have a smooth gray patina with extensive even minor pitting mostly along the sides of the slots. The brass is fine with some mild dings. The markings are clear. If you ever think you might need one of these, buy it now. You might not ever have another chance to find one separate of a gun.
