 Searching for the people that had plans for a  .22 cal. Gatling Gun. Haven't seen the add in quite some time. Anybody have an idea if they are still around?

I haven't seen the Ad for it in quite a while. My guess is they are not in business anymore due to the online digital space making hard copies obsolete.
There are a few websites advertising electronic PDF copies like this one: https://www.scribd.com/document/240132130/22LR-Gatling-Gun
One would probably be advised to look into these host sites to ensure they are legit before downloading anything from them.

Email sent.

I wish we had an area where we could upload large files bigger than the 0.5mb max we have in place.

After 2 hours of going over each page, yes it seems to be all there and buildable. Thank you again Ken.

Well, youíll have my attention. Curious if you wind up making any headway with a project like this. Or, would it be wise not to post it?
Iím not actually sure what the law is up here on gun manufacturing or smithing. I know I have an extended family member who has a manufacturing company but moved to Florida somewhat recently as I believe it became too difficult for him here. Florida seemed like a smart choice in that regard.

 shawn, it is considered a single shot weapon. It needs to be highly modified to fire automatically.

Sounds like a fantastic build, regardless. I look forward to hearing if you make any progress on it, Billy.

Tippmann Arms currently produces and sells a .22 Gatling gun, although it's belt fed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_x_qktLEO0
They also have one in 9mm that is both stick magazine or drum magazine fed.
Under US federal law Gatling guns are classified as class 1 firearms and might fall under antique firearms (not completely sure on the last part).

There is another Gatling gun conversion kit that uses two Ruger 10/22 rifles to make a Gatling gun. Basically the crank handle turns 2 offset cams to operate the triggers.
