  POWERLABS's Gauss Gun Division!
Gauss Guns, also known as Coil Guns, derive their name from the Mathematician Gauss, who's name is a measure of magnetic field strength (and since the propellant force in a gauss gun is a magnetic field, it makes sense to call them by the unit of that field).
The scientific definition of a gauss gun is that of an "Asynchronous linear induction motor".
However, what differs a gauss gun from just a regular solenoid is that in the gauss gun the core is allowed to move freely into and than THROUGH the solenoid.

 Gauss Guns vs. Rail Guns   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
gauss guns and rail guns are perfectly symmetric, because the relationship between voltage and current is identical to the relationship between electrostatic and electromagnetic forces.
gauss gun), the basic idea is that any particle which bears a current, when allowed to drift in a magnetic field will "fall" in the direction of the field, extracting energy from the field in the form of kinetic energy as it does so.
gauss gun and the rail gun, you start with the projectile at one end of the barrel with all your field generators (electrodes or coils) set to the same polarity (all electrodes positively charged, or all coils supporting a clockwise current).

 SYNDICATE: AMERICAN REVOLT STRATEGY GUIDE
Use lasers or gauss guns to quickly nail the military APC through the car gates at the drop-off point, then station one or two agents on either side of the gate to pick off at long range the police car full of agents and the two or three squads that advance toward the executive's car.
The gauss guards are pretty thick in the region of the executive; approach the target defensively and try to draw the guards towards the edges of buildings where you can hit them from outside with gauss guns.
Gauss guns and lasers abound on dead agents, so only buy enough to get past the initial agent waves and save your hard-earned cash for air raids.

 PowerLabs Rail Gun!
In 2004 the gun, currently located at the Michigan Technological University Dynamics research laboratory, has been decommissioned and is currently being replaced by a new, vastly improved design; The Rail Gun 2.0...
Good part of the many amateur Rail Gun attempts seen on the Internet failed because their power supplies were simply incapable of supplying the currents required; even "small" military and research designs employ currents in the 300KA+ range, with some of the larger guns going over 5 million amperes per pulse.
This particular gun took 150 hours of design and construction work before it could finally be fired and although specific plans are not available at the time, a complete and detailed log of the construction effort, including pictures and videos, is available for free at the Rail Gun Construction Effort page.

 PowerLabs Advanced Coil Gun Research!
Coil Guns, (also known as "gauss guns", or "coaxial accelerators", or "linear electromagnetic accelerators") are extremely easy to make, a fact that explains their popularity on the Internet and as a science project in general.

 Coilgun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A coilgun (also known as Gauss gun, Gauss cannon or Gauss rifle) is a type of magnetic accelerator gun (MAG) or magnetic accelerator cannon (MAC).
The name "Gauss gun" comes from Carl Friedrich Gauss, who formulated mathematical descriptions of the electromagnetic effect used by coilguns.
A superconducting quench gun could be created by successively quenching a line of adjacent coaxial superconducting coils forming a gun barrel, generating a wave of magnetic field gradient travelling at any desired speed.

 Combined Gauss Weapon
The 20 mm gauss gun is a single shot weapon.
The Acc gun can be fired in full auto or single shot (and of course, has no recoil, making it the perfect weapon in free fall.) Controls can be operated from either side of the trigger.
The 4mm gauss gun can be fired subsonically, allowing use of tracer or tranq needles.

 POWERLABS's multi stage gauss gun page!
However, all of the sites available describe small coil guns which are a pain to build and in the end yield unimpressive results.
POWERLABS already leads the field with its 3Kilojoule coil gun (as of the time this page was written that is by far the largest on the web), but now wishes to produce a multi stage coil gun so as to further its research and perform efficiency comparisons.
Because of the extremely large currents encountered during the firing of the gun, one has to be very careful with fast cycling rates.

 Coilgun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Coilguns are often mistakenly called railguns, and while they are similar in general concept (that is, a magnetic gun), they differ in operation, as a railgun accelerates projectiles down two parallel conducting rails.
Coilguns are a popular device in science fiction, especially sci-fi role playing and video games, where they go under such names Gauss cannon, Gauss rifle, or Magnetic Accelerator Cannon.
These are completely different in use as these guns cause damage on a molecular level.

 List of weapons in Half-Life 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The gun cannot pick up organic objects such as Combine Troops, though the primary fire itself can repel and harm some weaker enemies, such as headcrabs, and can be used to flip an Antlion, speculated to be due to their chitin-like hides containing non-organic compounds.
Alyx Vance has her own special weapon, a fully automatic gun with considerable firepower, and its appearance and functionality suggest that it is a machine pistol.
The Flare Gun is a hand-held signal launcher that is used to call Gunships to the aid of Combine infantry, or to provide illumination in dark situations (Seen in Nova Prospekt).

I have had several bad experiences with glass coil forms crushing on firing in my other gun, but unfortunately this was the best I could obtain.
The projectile is varnished with polyurethane varnish in order to minimize the impact between it and the tube's walls as it aligns itself to the magnetic field.
