The 4 mm Phoenix G30 Gauss
The Phoenix G30 is the first civilian gauss rifle to enter volume production.
When first introduced by the Phoenix Corporation, it was initially aimed
at the 'varmint rifle' market, where it's stealth features are a distinct
advantage. However the ease with which the weapon could be converted to
fully automatic fire rapidly lead to it's popularity with criminal elements.
This in turn lead to the G30 being banned on many worlds. In response to
this, the Phoenix Corporation has recently introduced the G30 Series 2,
with improved tamperproof electronics and a mechanical linkage in the action.
It should be noted that the G30 will be an unreliable weapon if converted
to fully automatic fire (assuming a rate limiter is also used, without
a rate limiter it will be very unreliable).
