My 1.5KJ Home-Built Gauss Rifle!

Posted by in categories: engineering, habitats

I’ve finally finished my gauss rifle! This is about four months in the making. I may improve on it in the future, or build an entirely new and better one! But I want to take a break from coil guns for a while.

Disclaimer:
I’d consider myself to be a pacifist, and don’t intend to use this on any person or animal. This project has merely acted as an outlet for my interest in electronics and electromagnetism. My aim has also been to create something cool to get others interested in science and engineering.
