    New to the forum, thought I would show of my project.
    I have been working on a railgun for some time, Here is revision 1:

    Revision two will be MUCH better, with more than twice the energy. It should peak at about 40 megawatts of power, and the projectile should go supersonic. It is also being constructed much better:

    Let me know what you think.

    Very cool.

    How difficult was it to build the railgun?

    Expensive? How long did it take you?

    A railgun is lots of design, manufacturing is not quite that difficult, depending on your resources.

    This would have been very expensive (over 1800$), but I was able to obtain a couple of sponsors, I spent less than 200.

    I spent a year researching while parts showed up, and the first revision was done in 2 months. V2 is taking longer, look at the build log to see how long it was going.
