For some reason the James Bond Goldeneye video I made of this will not upload. I will try again tomorrow. =[ !!!
Basically i wanted to make something that worked! What better way to make use of LEGO than to make a gun! I had done some early pictures of me blowing my head off that got a good reception from other people. I decided not to exhibit this piece because my work was going up in a Chappel and im sure it had the ability to offend. I also creatded the LEGO crossbow on the digital app but that was not going to work.
I got together to making a LEGO gun by starting with a very simple mechanism. It was all about the elastic streaching and being on a trigger that could let it loose. I set up so i had a wedged cog holding the elastic band. When the wedge was removed it fired … whooooo!
I built in a manual trigger and decided to use a band on that to help it to reset. As this worked suprisingly well i finished by making a case and fitted a Lugar style barrel to the gun. Im pretty happy with the power and accuracy i can get from this. I will try at some point to improve it so i can fire LEGO bricks themselves!
