So my other flywheel thread was locked for some reason and I was going to post this there, but I'll make a complete new thread for this. Since people are running slugs, instead of using fly wheels, why not a electromagnetic accelerator? use the metal inside the slug to accelerate the nerf slug...

IDEA THREAD. IF IT'S SUCH A GREAT IDEA, BUILD IT YOURSELF.
i never been to an apoc, but im getting the feeling alot of people are going to be running air pump nerf guns. idk, i think if i can get within 50ft of another person, i can tag them. i have my fiance to provide suppressing fire while i can flank who ever is shooting. but i could be wrong
So I'm in the process of making a home made nerf HMG, and I wanted a longer barrel, but yet have the same, or greater distance in FPS of the dart. I also came to realize that longer barrels would decrease the muzzle velocity of the dart. But what if you made one without a barrel at all? Would it work if you lined one one fly wheel to the next? I mean you would have the illusion of a barrel, you could design a LEWIS gun, or a MAXIM machine gun type of barrel, but they would just be fly wheels.
And if they were all flywheels how many volts would you have to run to achieve 200-250fps?

We don't usually do introduction threads for new guys, there would just be too many of them. I'm going to let this one fly assuming you're looking for other people on Long Island. Please read the New Members Guide before posting again, thanks! - the Moderation Staff
