The BrickGun Book shows you how to build five remarkably sleek LEGO® handgun replicas, like the classic Berreta 92FS and a formidable rubber-band-firing MAC-11. Each chapter includes step-by-step building instructions and a complete parts list using only readily available LEGO pieces.
Builder Jeff Boen has designed each model with stunning accuracy and attention to detail, focusing on everything from 1:1 real-life scale to functioning cocking and trigger mechanisms. Each BrickGun is ultra-realistic in look and feel, but mostly harmless—perfect for display or your next backyard battle.
NOTE: Adult supervision is required. These models are not suitable for children under the age of 12.
