I like this weapon, although I'd believe a more rounded magazine would be more mobile than a straight one.
Btw, any chance on designing a handheld Railgun?
Sorry, I meant more maneuverable and/or compact. A straight magazine that long would get in the way if the shooter were to go prone, a rounded one might be more flexible in that situation though. Either that or reduce the length of the magazine...
I guess that works.
I may help out with the inspiring!
Think of a weapon with a rifle-like design, outfitted with electro-magnetic coils powerful enough to propel a small, solid projectile at extremely high speeds, strong enough to pierce a thin steel plate, have little to no recoil upon firing and can charge up relatively quickly (about three to five seconds). Ammo count in a single magazine wouldn't be very high, so it could be more suited for sniper missions.
