Probably the Best DIY Railgun Thus Far [Project]
posted October 30 2014 21:15.07 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Definitely not even close to the Navy Railgun Prototype which can hurl a 10-kilos projectile with a speed of 8.000Kmph, but this amazing instructable made by Kevin Zhang the best I've seen so far.

It uses compressed air to shoot the projectile with an initial speed of 148mps (that's about 533 Kmph) and then releases the 1.4KJ of energy stored in the capacitors to further proper the projectile up to 204 mps or 735 Kmph.

The hole design and material selection gets a 10/10 and also a 10+ for the documentation.
