    If it works the same as the original gun, then it should have the same laws applied.

    I think the Gun Control Act uses "date of manufacture" to determine which guns are subject to the law. Any guns pre 1895 are exempt from the Gun Control Act. So I guess the argument could be that the gun and it's printed parts, made well after 1895, could be construed as illegal.

    As a model M1893 Gatling owner, I think it's quite amusing that I was able to purchase, and am able to use a very effective and devastating near thousand rounds a minute weapon, without a single word from any police and government and a neighbor of mine had to wait 7 days and go through hoops for a little .38 snubnose. A beautiful country this U.S.A at times :D
