LEGO Heavy Weapons: Build Working Replicas of Four of the World's Most Impressive Guns

[Video Link] Here's a video trailer for Jack Streat's Lego Heavy Weapons how-to book I mentioned last month.

From LEGO guns mastermind and 17–year-old YouTube sensation Jack Streat comes LEGO Heavy Weapons, a collection of complete building instructions for four truly impressive, 1:1-scale replicas of the world's most iconic firearms.

LEGO Heavy Weapons will show you how to build brick-based models of:

- A massive Desert Eagle handgun, with working blowback action

- The compact but deadly AKS-74U assault rifle with folding stock

- A bolt-action Lee Enfield sniper rifle (a.k.a. Jungle Carbine) with bipod and scope

- A pump action SPAS combat shotgun

Each set of instructions includes a complete parts listing, so you can find (or special order) any hard-to-find bricks. The book's illustrated, step-by-step building instructions will be clear to anyone who's ever played with LEGO bricks, and the biggest models will challenge and delight even the most serious builders.

  1. Good, but I need a 1:1 version of a howitzer for my back yard. My neighbors have been getting loud recently.

  2. No 1911? Fail!

    The Desert Eagle is sorta played out in my mind – but still some awesome brick building!

    1.  The Deagle was probably played out twenty years ago when they had Danny Glover lug one around for most of Predator 2 with a big laser sight (which he never turned on) stuck on top; his being chronically covered in sweat during the film was probably because of the weight, and he only got to fire it near the beginning of the film, IIRC.

    2. Ask and you shall receive:

      BrickGun 1911

      Jack’s DE was informed by our design from some 7 years ago. His mechanics are awesome, but our realism is a bit more on point.

  3. Great, now the TSA will confiscate Legos.  “Sorry but you could build an assault rifle once you got on the plane.”
