"..whizzing toward an enemy at more than 2,500 mph."
So is this the "TV land" rail gun interpretation?
I want one.
I want the one that they used in the movie Eraser.
Or approximately 3666 feet per second for those of us that speak in terms of external ballistics. The formula is mph X 1.46667
Looks very interesting.
I wonder if it would survive an EMP?
I suppose the electronics and performance will be checked in all conditions...from underwater to in the desert; from tropical to arctic conditions.
I second it.
For all you folks who want this; think of what having one would do to your reloading set-up. And for you who do the PC thingy - forget about it!
As my old Navy "Seadaddy", the ET Seniorchief told me, "Electronics always fail at the worst possible time!"
He literally helped write the course book in Radar A School.
So, what hapoens during a firefight, the bad guys are charging and your trigger battery dies!?
Was it Remington that fielded a rifle with an electronically fired primer some years ago? I kind of recall that the batteries were in the butt.
And, they were probably not included wit the purchase of the fun.
This whole thing reminds me of the failed effort, also many years ago, to go to caseless ammunition.
Yes it was. It was a model 700 called the etron x.
This is not a rail gun. A rail gun power supply would be the size of the original Jeep. The electromagnetic actuator replaces the primer and would probably go off if you got too close to the radio man, a comm truck, radar, or a EMP event. Another money pit.
A four shot rifle?? Boy are we moving backwards...
