Coilgun a coilgun accelerates a piece of iron or steel down a tube. The tube runs through a series of electromagnetic coils (like solenoids). There's no sparks or noise or impressive side effects (or parts to wear out). Some careful timing circuits energize each coil in sequence. The principle of magnetic attraction draws the projectile along at rapidly increasing speed
Coilgun a reluctance coilgun is basically a solenoid which can launch iron or steel projectiles by careful timing of the coil current
