GR-1 Anvil Railgun Gauss Rifle Arcflash Labs
At $3375 USD, the GR-1 Anvil is a handheld railgun, or gauss rifle, that uses a series of electromagnetic coils to pull a projectile down a barrel. Arcflash Labs claims that it’s capable of firing any ferromagnetic projectile (under 1/2″ in diameter) to 200+ feet-per-second and can produce up to 100 Joules of force, or 75 foot-pounds, making it the most powerful coilgun ever sold to the public.

The railgun measures 38-inches in length (26-inch barrel length) and weighs in at a somewhat hefty 20-pounds, entirely powered by a 25.2-volt lithium-ion polymer battery (LiPoly) good for 40+ shots per charge. Can it be used as a weapon? Well, it accelerates projectiles with 101 joules of energy on target and for comparison, a .45 ACP can deliver 483 joules.

It’s not a matter of if, but when gunpowder will be succeeded. It’s a one thousand year old technology. It works fine. But we think we’ve got something better. There’s tremendous potential here, but the technology is still in its infancy,” said David Wirth, Co-Founder of Arcflash Labs.
