Ban Micro-Magnetic Guns! by Robert Farago | May 05, 2016 | 12 comments facebook twitter linkedin email You could put an eye out with that thing! comments Mr. Woodcock says: May 5, 2016 at 19:03 I feel “micro” aggressed by this weapon of war. Damn you TTAG!…..this was supposed to be a “safe place”. /extreme Sarc off Reply Vhyrus says: May 5, 2016 at 19:07 a non electrically based Gauss gun… clever. Reply Geoff PR says: May 5, 2016 at 19:44 It would be possible to make a version of that where a charged cap bank discharges into a coil of wire acting against a rare-earth magnetized flechette. I can imagine the charging circuit sounding like a photographer’s flash gun… Reply Pantera Vazquez says: May 5, 2016 at 19:18 After seeing this video, Shannon Watts calls Bloomberg and convinces him to finance MAIM. For the children ™. because moms gotta mom. Reply MLee says: May 5, 2016 at 19:30 Just about anything other than a huge nerf ball can put out an eye. Those things wouldn’t even stick in your skin. Boring! Reply Frank Masotti says: May 5, 2016 at 19:47 I want to see a working gun like prototype, shooting something resembling bullets at there gun powder speed, distance, and accuracy. That’s just me though. 🙂 Reply A. C. says: May 6, 2016 at 13:59 There are several YouTube videos showing larger, but electrically operated prototypes of Gauss guns (aka coil guns). Check ’em out. Coil guns don’t appear to have the potentials that railguns do. Reply jwm says: May 5, 2016 at 19:53 Is this the dread .9mm I’ve been hearing about? Reply CCDWGuy says: May 5, 2016 at 20:50 Oh no, if someone figured out how to do it with a bigger magnet it might start a new escalation to something that would almost be an airgun!!! I’m so, so afraid of the possibilities. This and the Iranian nuke possibility just scare me to near death!! Why can’t someone stop progress!!! Reply Steven says: May 5, 2016 at 21:09 My god do I want one Reply Paul says: May 5, 2016 at 22:06 Interesting, if you make a hammer out of an opposite pole’d magnet than the firing pin, and then had the floating firing pin connect as this video shows….I think you could have something. Reply Paul says: May 6, 2016 at 07:48 I’m waiting for the SBR semi-automatic version, with quad rails, a free floating barrel, adjustable stock, and tritium night sights.
