Gauss guns, aka coilguns, are a projectile based weapon most commonly found in science-fiction but which can be built with today’s technology. They work by using electromagnets to propel solid slugs at a high velocity. This gauss gun, with a full auto feature, was developed by Delta V Engineering. Delta V is about making sci-fi […]
This G36 is a fully functional coilgun that uses electricity to fire metal bolts. It feels very much like a weapon from the future. The three lasers making aiming straight forward and the view finder is impressive. The power? It’s not bad and you can imagine how it could be ramped even higher.
Fancy making your own version of this gun? The instructions are here. This video was introduced to me as “Look what this geek girl has built!” This person, who shall remain nameless, was partly impressed with the build and partly surprised that a woman had made it. Why? What’s so surprising about that? You should […]
All I know about weapons I’ve learnt from roleplaying games; either as a player or as a GM. The pictures below show modern bullets cut in half. You can see the powder and contents of each round. It’s easy to see why some are better at punching through armour than others and why some specialise […]
This zombie slaying weapon is Kody Koala’s latest project. It has a chainsaw for when the zombies get close and a sniper rifle for when you’re in the right position – not close to them. This is a fully functional Nerf gun, with a modified clip (12 shots) and will be on sale later if […]
This bone pistol duelling set and the guns below are the creation of Bruce Mahalski. His work has been included in exhibitions since 1997 and, safe to say, has its own look. On his bio Mahalski notes that he started collecting shells, fossils and bones at a very young age, copying his scientist parents who […]
It’s sometimes remarked that roleplayers know far more about guns and weapons than the general public. Certainly, here in the UK if you found youself eavesdropping on a conversation about which type of gun to use… the chances are quite high you’re listening to gamers talking about a campaign.
Think Geek have a fantastically designed, full size, M-3 Predator from Mass Effect 3. The model of the gun with red lights is limited to only 500 pieces and the blue light verision is even more rare with only 150 made. The gun was sculpted and painted by the experts at TriForce and may be […]
The OMG-AR15 Unicorn is a modified gun. In fact, it’s a CA-legal Smith & Wesson M&P15, 6-position stock, chambering in .223/5.56 tri-colour dot scope. It also has a rechargeable 18v chain saw and fast-swap bayonet mount. We can thank the team at Guns & Gardens for the device. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking […]
There’s a reason I keep my eyes on the virtual shop shelves of the geeks over at Vat19. They come up with pretty interesting things to sell. For example, imagine cufflinks made from spent Colt .45 rounds. Actually, you don’t need to imagine because Vat19 sells them and I can show you what they look […]
