wow really neat, i saw a real life gauss gun pistol that had a similar design as your.

What does APCS and APCDS stand for

So, what this is, in essence, is a mini/rail/coilgun.
This could single-handedly win any modern war. It is the most beautiful, perfect type of destruction personified in about...half a meter.

Aaaand, it doesn't need anything like gunpowder in the ammunition. In theory, the slugs need not even be specially crafted, just of the right shape that they don't warp the rails. Heck, this gun could fire anything from pistolbullet-sized rounds to the biggest one too fit, all dependent on the charge of the gun itself.

I am truly considering putting a rail gun inside a body such as this. It's a great project, i'll have to put it on my to-do list.

wow I knew it was a railgun before I even looked at the description XD

epic gun!

Technically, that's a coilgun. The difference is that a railgun has one solid magnetic rail, whilst a coilgun has multiple intermittent magnetic coils. Much more powerful. Much more dangerous. I like.

i love the industrial look of it. i see you considered the heat index with the open parts of the rail.

PS, youve made a gauss gun, similar to a railgun, but not quite, sorry, had to point it out.

a railgun has rails, that are long, the projectile rides teh rails along the path to the end of the unit, this causes massive rail errosion.
gauss guns have there projectile float inbetween there rings when they fire, less powerful, but less damaging to the system whole

well, this is a railgun, not coilgun exactly. high-temperature high-tensile superconductors (rails and projectile sabot) can lower the rail erosion. Using plasma piston can lower this too. Anyway, the coilgun will require more powerful energy cell (at my calculations, six those batteries at least)
The «M150 Wolf-3 operating manual» refers to 2000 shots rersource of the rotary block (at least 400 shots per rail). This also notes that the rotary block is most expensive part of the M150.

Will 100-µm kelemite or one-layer corthosis rail coating lower erosion?

THIS IS AWESOME!!!!! but why is the railgun rotary?
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To increase firerate (100-200 rpm to 500-1000) and lower each rail wear
wassap34 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
ah that makes sense,you know that with a magnetically fed/loading magazine and a complete lack of mechanical parts that a single barrel railgun could fire up to 2000-3000rpm? oh and is your fire rate per each barrel or all of them?
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
fire rate is total of five barrels and limited due to reliability reason. Maximum rpm is seven thousand at one third of muzzle velocity, but cases rapid rail overheat and erosion.

Cool!!! I want one :eager:
Silverlion Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2011
Very nicely done. The handle should be more worn if the rest of it is scuffed up, I suspect. That's the only thing I can find to critique and that's nitpicky to find even that.

I love rotary railguns 8D
