I'm planning on building a Browining 1919 Light Machine Gun and I need some tips on how to make it work for shooting and some techniques for the sleek look, I'm a first time Gun builder :)

well, first off decide wether you want a rb shooting gun or a brick shooter. then figure out if you are going to make your own mechanism or copy someones (remember if you do that make sure to give that person credit). for a sleek look just make the gun look like the real one. also try to use bricks that are the same color that always helps.

The Browning is probably the perfect subject for a first gun. It is practically a box with a barrel out of it. Using a few pics will help you with the minor details like the loading port, etc. If you want to make this thing a full auto rubber band gun, you will definately need to gear down the pressure. Also, make the gun as clean looking as possible. Try making it without too many holes on the outside and one color always helps.

I kind of like it when the whole gun is like made out of technics... And also you cant forget that you can use a motor for a fully automatic gun to.

A gun that is made of entirely Technic bricks and liftarms is one of my pet peeves. Though it is much stronger, it is very difficult to make it mimic the appearance of an existing firearm as closely as possible. By all means use Technic to help but I would stay away from relying on them for the whole gun.

And suggestion if you do want to use Technic for the whole thing, be sure to have a ton of 1x1, 1x2 (one hole, two holes, axle hole types), 1x4 as well as the longer Technic bricks. Use the long ones for the general shape and the shorter ones for the curves, as in fine tune the steps so you can put slopes on the edges to smooth it out. Hope that makes sense.
