Well~ That's so cheap for such a 'Gauss' gun... Love this idea and the power in the video games back to 20+ years ago.... They finally made it today?!

No sure about the details tho... Do I need to connect it to a stage2 or stage 3 vehicle charging station to use? [emoji38]

Power supply is 1000w
Muzzle speed is 200+ fps. (201fos?! [emoji38] )
'ferromagnetic' ammo up to 1/2" in size (looks lead is not its diet... Maybe BBs? A 4k$ BB gun then?! [emoji38] )

Just a quick reading... Didn't read charging time, hopes I can use a quick charge via the vehicle 12v outlet to recharge it in an hour or buy (some) extra battery packs?!

Interesting stuff ~

i'm sure that that +$4500CDN price is mostly due to high-wage american labour.

i'll be checking AliExpress first.

There are a lot of good videos for making rail guns.......It is scary the damage you can do with one.

Yeah... Learned the word Gauss Gun in a PC game I played when I am in middle school... Aa the high-end weapon, that's just can't be too powerful ~

Nope... Fallout just too new ~

I think it's a game named 'Syndicate' developed by Bullfrog in the 90's running on DOS...

Fallout do have its Gauss gun at the end... But I more like the sniper rifle or the laser and plasma mini-gun~ [emoji38]
