Fry Tech Brujeria: Electromagnetic Pew

If an electromagnetic rifle sounds like a gun from the future, you might be interested to learn the future is now. The Fry Tech Brujeria is an electromagnetic dampening rifle made to significantly reduce felt recoil during live fire. Yes, modern technology and firearms can and do mix. This rifle is a stellar example of the meeting of classic designs and futuristic components. To learn more about this platform, keep reading.

According to Fry Tech, the patent-pending electromagnetic technology makes the Brujeria a flat-shooting, reduced-recoil gun. That translates to improved accuracy, rapid target acquisition, and a more comfortable shooting experience overall. Fry Tech describes running the gun as an “alchemic” experience. As for its name, Brujeria translates to witchcraft, which is a fairly appropriate name given the leaps in tech this gun offers.

Although the technology is clearly advanced, the company breaks it down as simply as possible. The Brujeria functions thanks to a pair of electromagnets located in the stock and chamber of the gun. A power source is also integral to the platform. Fry Tech states their design creates a magnetic field that serves to dampen felt recoil. This is listed as a tunable system as well; the Brujeria can be adjusted or tuned according to the specific recoil parameters of the rifle. Fry Tech compares this process to the way shooters use adjustable gas blocks. Interestingly, the on-board battery is also said to power the red dot and keep itself going by utilizing energy from the recoil produced during live fire.

A specific chambering for the Brujeria is not listed on the company’s website or in the patent paperwork, but the images show an AR-15 platform rifle. And while the dampening qualities of the system are amazing, it’s also impressive and convenient to think of a system capable of powering its own red dot via recoil.

Here’s how Fry Tech describes the electromagnetic components in the patent, which is listed online:

What is claimed is:

1. An electromagnetic system coupled to a firearm, the firearm having a bolt moveable
between a forward position and a backward position, the electromagnetic system comprising:

a first electromagnet unit comprising a conducting coil and a magnet, wherein the magnet
is coupled to the bolt, and wherein the conducting coil is configured to generate a magnetic field
that opposes a movement of the bolt from the forward position to the backward position;

a second electromagnet unit comprising a generator coil, a generator magnet, and a
connector connecting the generator magnet to the bolt such that movement of the bolt causes
movement of the generator magnet, wherein the movement of the generator magnet is configured
to induce a current in the generator coil; and

a power source in electrical connection with the conducting coil and the generator coil,
wherein the power source is configured to receive induced current from the generator coil, and
wherein the power source is configured to provide electric current to the conducting coil in order
to facilitate generation of the magnetic field.
