Does the gattling gun fire 100 rounds a second?
The original Gatling gun (invented in 1861 but patented in 1862) was one of the most well known rapid-fire weapons to be used in the 1860s by the Union forces of the Civil War.
Although the first Gatling gun was capable of firing continuously, it required human power to crank it; as such it was not a true automatic weapon.
Some time later, Gatling-type weapons were invented that diverted a fraction of gas from the chamber to turn the barrels.
Later still, electric motors supplied external power. The new electric-powered Gatling gun had a theoretical rate of fire of 3,000 rounds per minute, roughly three times the rate of a typical modern, single-barreled machine gun. Gatling's electric-powered design received US Patent #502,185 on 07/25/1893. Despite Gatling's improvements, the Gatling gun fell into disuse after cheaper, lighter-weight, recoil and gas operated machine guns were invented.
The modern M61 Vulcan is a 20 mm hydraulically or pneumatically driven, six-barreled, air-cooled, electrically fired Gatling-style cannon with an extremely high rate of fire. Rate of fire:
6,000 rounds per minute (M61A1) (this is 100 rounds per second).
6,600 rounds per minute (M61A2) (this is 110 rounds per second).
On the 12/20/2007 episode of Future Weapons, they mentioned a Dillon Aero M134D Gatling Gun (USA), a 7.62 mm, multi-barrel minigun with a high rate of fire of over 3,000 rounds per minute (50 rounds per second).

There is a broad range of ROF (Rate of Fire). It can be anywhere from a crazy slow 3 rounds per second (some off-brand guns) all the way up to 100 rounds per second (Echo 1 M134). These are the ends of the scale, while most guns fire 10-20 rounds per second on fully automatic. Read More
It had a cyclic rate of fire of 600 rounds per minute, rapid rate of fire of 200 rounds per minute, and a continued rate of fire of 100 rounds per minute. Read More
Yes, in general a suppressor can increase rate of fire by 50-100 rounds/ minute. Read More
The minigun shoots 6000 rounds per minute, that is 100 bullets a second, so it does have about 1000-10000 bullets Read More

Based on power and clip size, it's no contest - the Thompson Sub Machinegun was far better than the MP-40. The MP-40 utilized simple 9mm rounds, but the Tommy gun utilized more potent .45 caliber rounds. And if you swapped the stick magazine for the drum, you could fire 50-100 rounds in succession without reloading. Read More
