Less Lethal LVVWS Rifle

Less Lethal LVVWS Rifle

The Lund Variable Velocity Weapons System, or LVVWS, can fire lethal and less-lethal rounds….

A popular toy manufacturer has developed a new rifle that can deliver both lethal and non-lethal rounds.

Developed by Lund Technologies (yes that’s right folks, the same company that brought to our stores the likes of Tickle Me Elmo and Honey My Baby Pony), the Lund Variable Velocity Weapons System or LVVWS, is an all-in-one weapon, meaning it can be lethal when used at high velocity or less-lethal at low-velocity.

The gun uses pump action, shoots two rounds a second and weighs a just over six pounds. It also incorporates a rangefinder-based safety system that automatically shoots non-lethal rounds, and when set in non-lethal mode the muzzle shifts down in order to prevent accidental high-velocity shooting at close-range targets.

The LVVWS pump action system is based on the technology used to propel Lund Technologies’ toy rockets – which work by burning the hydrogen obtained by electrolyzing water. And with its hydrogen-powered combustion chamber, the LVVWS doesn’t produce and smoke or residue.

The LVVWS was funded by the Pentagon and the Government’s Small Business Innovation Research group (SBIR), and comes as part of the Pentagon’s push for more less-lethal weaponry. Most current less-lethal weapons are useless over long ranges (like a taser), or fatal if fired too close (like rubber bullets).

Although it may be a long while before the weapons arrive in the hands of troops, it will no doubt be useful in wars that are fought among civilians.
