We had a rail gun at the Naval Postgraduate School that was giving rifle-level performance, but it used several thousand pounds' worth of batteries, capacitors and wiring. Loud as hell when it went off, and it had the typical problems with rail erosion after a limited number of shots. Still, the technology is only going to get better.
