I know Doug has a taste for this kind of stuff, and who doesn't like multi-barrel weapons? Laughing

Here is a Mitrailleuse (dating around 1870 or earlier) from Morges's Museum:


I think this should be a Reffye mitrailleuse, see:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitrailleuse

In Morges there is a 25,4 mm Colt Gatling 1866 as well:


Here the complete set on the Museum:

These two pieces are much more exotic. Both were evaluated by the Swiss Army around 1860, but never adopted. You can see them in Solothurn's Museum.

1) Maschinengewehr Albertini





2) Maschinengewehr Winborg





Looks like this was kind of a Nordenfelt's ancestor:

I was thinking the same thing. This is the APG Nordenfelt that most folks here will be familiar with...

This one appears to be of identical design and manufacture as the one in Bucharest.
