Is there anything more sci-fi, cyberpunk, or space-gun than a Gauss Rifle? Ok so it’s not a rifle, but the EMG-02 fits the form factor, and despite current tech limitations, it’s cool as hell, and the development we’ve seen in these products over the last few years is astounding.

The newest model from ArcFlash is the EMG-02, which has improved from the previous iteration both in performance, and user-friendliness. Using an off-the-shelf drill battery, having a massive capacitor that doubles as something of a stock, and overall better balancing make it much more accessible as a weapon. It’s more powerful, while still not quite reaching modern service-caliber pistol capability, but it’s not difficult to imagine that in another decade or so, this thing will be launching magnetically stabilized projectiles of sufficient mass and velocity to be relied upon in a hunting, or self-defense scenario.

Check out the video, and be sure to watch to the end to see how it handles improvised ammunition!

Lars is one of Gat's Wordmancers, having come to the company after years of experience in biology, agriculture, management, marketing, and writing. He found the gun community through prepping, and after realizing where he was on the Dunning-Kruger scale, jumped into the self-defense community with both feet. Since then, the 80 hours of professional firearms instruction he's taken has only made him hungry for more.
