Abstract:

There is disclosed a gun operated firing device which utilizes the kinetic energy of a gas-operated gun to generate, store and discharge voltage to fire electrically primed ammunition. The firing device contains a magnetic circuit comprised of a coil, a capacitor across the output of the coil, a diode between said capacitor and coil, a resistor in parallel with the capacitor and a switch in the form of a firing pin which connects the circuit to the primer. The circuit is in the bolt carrier of the gun which slides on an upper receiver tube containing a magnet causing the flux created to link with the coil. Author
