BR55HB Battle Rifle (Halo 3)
My biggest, heaviest, and scariest creation to date! Most Halo fans are looking forward to the release of an epic new shooter next month. (myself included) But if you're like me, then part of you is going to miss Halo 3 just a little bit. So before we move on, I thought I'd post a little something special.
About this creation
Features:

Working trigger

Working bolt

Removeable magazine

The exterior is completely studless, except for the scope lenses.


A few things you should know:

1. Sorry, it ain't for sale.

2. There's a few things missing, like the ammo counter and three-prong muzzle break. I actually know exactly how I want to build them, but there's always that issue of not having the right pieces in the right color. But I'll keep looking!

3. If anybody asks for instructions, I might just stab myself.


This thing is pretty long, and my photography skills aren't winning any awards. Work with me, people.



I wasn't quite sure how to capture the forward angle of the front handgrip, so I shamelessly copied the technique that Nick Jensen used on his rifle.


I'm kidding, I'm kidding! I asked his permission first. So, kudos to Nick Jensen for the handgrip.


The stock, complete with that grey circle thingy.


Again, the scope is the only place you'll find any studs on the rifle's exterior.



FPS(ish) view.



With the scope off. Because secretly, you always wondered what it would look like.



Now let's get into the technical features. First up is the trigger.



It's powered by a Technic shock absorber, in case you were interested.



For the bolt, however, I decided to use good old rubber band power.



And yes, it locks into place for "reloading" purposes. Of course it makes a nice "click-clack" sort of sound.



Upon closer inspection in Forge mode, I couldn't find any visible magazine release. But on the side of the stock, there was a small diagram that showed the magazine with an arrow pointing backwards and down. Of course they couldn't mean the whole magazine, but what about the footplate?



*evil laughter* You see where I'm going with this? First, you pull back on the magazine's footplate...



And the magazine will slide out...



Like so! The release is spring-loaded, just like the trigger.



I'm not 100% sure if this is how the magazine release works, but until somebody comes up with something better...



I think I got the pattern right..?















You be the judge.







You feelin' lucky, Grunt?

Of course, I always look forward to hearing what you have to say. I hope you enjoyed viewing it even half as much as I enjoyed building it, and your suggestions are always greatly appreciated!

Quoting Reaper the Ultimate . I like this a lot. i'm quite tired of seeing Halo rifles covered in greebles. They're weapons! I wish I new how you got the mag to spring out...
Fixed. A bunch of the images stopped working after one of the recent server crashes, including the images of the magazine release and how it works. So now I've re-uploaded them all. Anyway, the magazine's footplate slides backwards one stud while the magazine remains stationary. The wedge brick you see on the front of the magazine goes inside of a notch in the front of the magazine well, which is how the mag is held in place. When you pull the footplate backwards 1 stud, the wedge brick slides backwards with it, allowing the magazine to be removed from the rifle. I hope this makes sense.

Best HALO Rifle on MOCPages so far, if you ask me of course. That's one of the most sophisticated magazines I've ever seen, and so are the rest of the gun. Great, GREAT job there! Keep up the good work :D

You nailed it. This is my favorite gun in HALO, and you got all of the details and functions perfect. I'm not sure if that's how the mag is released either, but I like the creativity. I'd like to say that I'm also working on a battle rifle, but in Brickarms.

Quoting Nick Jensen There's not a lot of detail or color, but I do understand that your collection is somewhat limited.
Yeah, those are two areas where your rifle is far superior. Haha, I probably have about five dark grey bricks in my whole collection, so I had to settle for black. But I'm glad you like it, and hopefully I'll get my hands on the pieces I need to add those last few details. Thank you for commenting, everyone!

Looking at the overall shape, I have to say this is the best battle rifle built. The proportions and overall length/height are extremely accurate. There's not a lot of detail or color, but I do understand that your collection is somewhat limited. I really like that magazine and bolt! Nicely done on those two parts. Once again, best Battle Rifle in terms of shape and size. 5/5.

Oh no, two studs showing on the whole creation. How could you. Great job on this. You should try to make the grip more comfortable by offsetting the bricks. 5/5
