"The Righteous Bison is no ordinary raygun. Far from it.
Where traditionally manufacturers in the Wave Oscillation genre have (some say lazily) gone down the well charted route of heft and mass, the Righteous Bison has been designed with the handler in mind. Portability and wieldability have been the guiding lights for the ground breaking team of young talent that's been put in charge of this whimsical undertaking.
It is furthermore an eminently suitable accessory to your pseudo-Victorian attire for weekending in the country or impressing your peers at parties or other large gatherings. The Righteous Bison can take a fair amount of man-handling. And even more woman-handling!
The result, ladies and gentlemen, as I'm sure you agree, is nothing short of pretty good. The gun is about the same weight as a small brown trout (or two pints of Pale Ale) and can be fired continuously without exhausting the sportsman. Much like a good man-servant.
It is dispatched packaged in equally light-weight materials and should reach you at your desired destination quick-smart.
Made from Imitation Metal*
Any similarity between the Righteous Bison Indivisible Particle Smasher and the raygun silhouette in the crest of Grordbort Industries is naturally not completely coincidental. They're both rayguns, silly.
*Imitation Metal is a light-weight compound that looks and feels remarkably like plastic under Earth conditions "
Are they right? I'd say so. Would Lord Cockswain approve? Wholeheartedly, I'd say, after all every Transplanetary Adventurer needs a lightweight, but powerful raygun at their side, ready to dispatch various and sundry whatevers, should the need arise.

Sreampunk coil gun

There’s no shortage of Steampunk fanfare these days, and this particular Steampunk weapon, a seemingly simple coilgun pistol, is actually quite a bit more complicated than it looks. If you’re like me, your first thought is probably along the line of “So how does this thing shoot again?” Well the original creator is happy to address our concerns! This coilgun sports an electromagnetic accelerator that uses high voltage to accelerate a magnetic projectile. You’ll need something to deliver said voltage, yes? Well, that’s what capacitors are made for. The charged capacitors then deliver the charge and produce a brief magnetic field which draws the projectile into the center of the coil. Then, in theory anyway, the field is then stopped and you get…well…BANG! In other words, I still have no idea how exactly this thing works. It just does. Accept it and move on.

Actual uses and bulky appearance aside, I have to admit I find most Steampunk creations fascinating, and this one is no different. If you’re wondering about construction, the coilgun’s creator obtained some brass sheet metal from the local hobby shop and used it for the gun’s casing. I’m no metal worker, but I have to believe getting it to fit properly was a huge pain in the ass. Still, props on the completed result, and it even comes with it’s own case and certificate of authenticity. I would think that given the…unique nature of the gun it wouldn’t need one, but you can never be too careful.

Now this gun can in fact actually fire, as the video below shows, or at least I think it shows that. While the first 20 seconds showing the pictures of the gun are clear as day, the display of it’s functionality is confusing at best. What I can deduce from the all-too-dark video is that the gun can shoot some type of projectile through a piece of paper at near point blank range. With that said that this thing can fire at all is pretty impressive. Most of the Steampunk gadgetry that I find seems to be all show. Looks like function is still almost as important as form, after all.

For a different, but just as impressive, coil gun creation, check out the amazing LED Coilgun previously seen.

Spaceman Dave's Special FX Blaster

Reinforcements have finally arrived from my home planet, including this loud, vibrating battery operated space aged "Ray Gun"and i am going to run around shooting you and everyone else with it. (as soon as the paint dries) this is a popular toy that has shown up recently on ebay. Im guessing it is from Asia somewhere called the "Daves" Raygun.

ok so here it is a super dooper ray gun with sound, lights and motion with batteries included. this gun vibrates in your hand bigtime. the lights are timed to make a pattern... in and out real cool like at the front and side and along the sides where that line of holes there on the back side are ... on top of all that... there is a bright ass blue LED flashlight affixed at the very top and it all runs on 3 double A batteries :[].

The sounds are the best i have heard from a gun this size so far at this point in time 2010 because i have seen the ones before now and the ones in the future and for this year in time its is ahead of its time.... :{|
