Using newer curved slope pieces we have reshaped the slide to have the look we always wanted. Curved and free of all studs along the top. Check out the new design and grab a kit now! We at BrickGun have been huge fans of Warhammer tabletop gaming for years and decided to pay homage by building a couple of 40K Storm Bolter weapons.

And to Drac for giving me the Super Car on my 28th birthday, without which I never would have found my way back to the happiness that came when I first clicked two bricks together at age 6.

I now forgive you guys for melting my server. Contents Introduction. I created BrickGun. Building Tips The following techniques will make for easier building. Being able to press pieces onto the model using a fair amount of force without breaking your build is made significantly easier by working on a sturdy tabletop or countertop.

When portions of the model protrude down such as when the trigger is attached , try to work with the flat, bottom portion of the model on a flat surface and the descending portion hanging off the edge. The instructions are in full color and easy to follow, just like the ones you find in official LEGO sets.

The components, build order, and especially the internal mechanical functions carry over to the 92FS, Desert Eagle, and , so building the BG22 first will lay the groundwork for the other models. So what are you waiting for? Each model in the book uses a standard set of conventions for building instructions. If you leave gaps between pieces, you may find that sections will not fit together properly or move as expected when the model is complete.

Rather than trying to snap two pieces together directly on top of one another, first attach the studs at one end and then press along the length of the pieces until they are securely connected. Callouts show small subassemblies that are built separately and then attached to the main model.

They are highlighted in yellow with pointers showing where the 2 Introduction subassembly attaches. Inset Graphics Subassemblies Inset graphics convey additional information about a section of the model. They often show the current step from a different angle to clarify how pieces are attached. Simply set aside your work; it will be used later. If the flip arrows are isolated near the model, rotate the entire structure from the previous step so that it is oriented as shown.

Rubber bands are used to actuate mechanical movements, such as triggers, hammers, and slides. Using the correct size ensures Introduction 3 the correct amount of tension and that the mechanisms will move as expected.

These rubber bands are standard in the LEGO system, and generic versions are also readily available from office supply stores. Rubber bands are shown in various colors. These colors merely indicate which rubber band is which in the model and how they are attached. Mind the Details History The history of BrickGun began one fateful night in when, on a whim, I decided to see whether I could put together a model of the Beretta For me, the 92 has always been the handgun.

I am partial to Italian design, and the lines of the 92—its iconic barrel top, curvy grip, and flowing shape—are unique and elegant. It is more like a piece of art than a weapon. At the time, my only frame of reference was my memory. Certain pieces have ridges, grooves, or other details that are often important. Always pay close attention to ensure that you are orienting these pieces exactly as they are shown in the instructions.

This simple combination of pieces was the inspiration for my first handgun model. But I was fairly happy with it—mostly because I had achieved a pretty good design on nothing more than a lark. My first version of the Beretta 92 was blocky and had no moving parts, but it captured the basic idea. But over the next few days, the idea grew. What if I could make the trigger move? What about the hammer?

And what if I could make the slide the top portion of the gun that wraps around the barrel move realistically? I started to consider the ways in which I might be able to make it all happen, which pieces could be used, and how rubber bands might be integrated to automate the movement. But I still wanted to keep the model life-sized. Two versions later, I had created a design with a working trigger, hammer, slide, and slide lock. The model was fairly sturdy and approximately life-sized, and it looked more or less like the real thing.

As these images started to circulate away from LUGNET and made their way to high-traffic, cool gadget sites, I was immediately inundated with requests from all over the world for information on how to purchase the model. The idea of starting a business had never even occurred to me; I just wanted to show my LEGO friends what I had created.

But after a few weeks of getting requests to provide models or instructions, I decided to buy up a stock of parts and lay out instructions. And so the company that would one day be known as BrickGun was unofficially born. The MP5 is my favorite submachine gun, so as with my favorite handgun, I decided to see if I could create a worthy model for it.

Its removable magazine locked into place with a realistic mechanism, held the correct number of rounds, and was identical in size to the real thing, with the stock collapsed or extended. The MP5 was met with an even more avid reaction than the The same sites that went wild over my realistic pistol were positively ballistic over my evenmore-realistic submachine gun.

In , after numerous requests from fans and customers, I decided to try building a model of the Desert Eagle. But this time I chose to approach the design from a different angle. I had spent enough time with my 92 model that I could appreciate how inaccurate it was when compared to the real thing, and with the MP5, I had started to learn how to incorporate realworld attributes to increase accuracy. With the Desert Eagle, I wanted a model that was as accurate as possible in both size and detail.

I now use the process I developed for the Desert Eagle for every life-sized model I create. Suffice it to say, once the Desert Eagle was completed, I had to go back and completely redesign my original Beretta The BrickGun Desert Eagle, designed from the start with techniques to guarantee life-sized scale and accuracy Introduction The fourth version of the 92 was built exactly to the dimensions of the real gun, with details that made it unmistakably recognizable, and I was able retain all of the working mechanical functions trigger, hammer, slide, and slide lock from my original design.

The website went up with a catalog of models that also included my newest creation at the time: the BG17, my version of the G17 pistol. Next I created a MAC rubber-band shooter, which had the notable achievement of semiautomatic firing through the use of an escapement mechanism. But after at least 20 attempts, I succeeded in bringing it all together in my BG22 model. I was not only able to create a scale magazine with a LEGO bullet!

It had a working trigger, internal hammer, slide, slide lock, and now, finally, a working magazine. When you pulled the slide back and looked down the ejector port, you could even see the top of the magazine holding the LEGO bullet in the breach, exactly as with a real gun.

The BG22 easily became my most successful model to date. My latest creation is the Colt , the second-most requested model by fans and customers. Cramming in all the mechanical functions while still keeping the scale and making it look like the iconic turned out to be the most difficult LEGO challenge I had ever undertaken. I worked on it for years, refining sections until they were just right and then encountering another hurdle. This routine went on and on until I eventually got the design to where I felt it absolutely could not be improved upon.

This is the most complex model in the book. The book was printed and bound at Everbest Printing in Guangzhou, China. The paper is gsm Goldeast Matte.
