Magnum Gauss Barrels are an optional modification for conventional firearms, normally using chemical propellants in their ammunition.
This option extends a firearm’s barrel and adds a series of magnetic accelerator coils to the extra length. The coils impart additional velocity to the projectile before it leaves the barrel. This results in a significantly improved penetration profile, the main benefit of such barrel modification.
A Magnum Gauss Barrel modification can be easily added to any firearm which comes equipped to accept a silencer, taking the silencer’s place.
The gauss barrel weights 1.5 kg.
Advanced Gunnery: Berenyi, the manufacturer, asks 145c for it.
A Magnum Gauss Barrel adds +3 to the PEN of any round fired from the modified firearm.
