My first ever non-pistol life size Lego weapon. This here is the M-243 Carbon .50 caliber sniper rifle, portrayed in arctic camo. The sniper is a custom design from my own universe, but it is roughly a cross between a Barrett .50 cal and an M-21 EBR. Note that this is only a WIP.
About this creation
Trigger. This is just a WIP placeholder; in the final mechanized version the trigger will work.
Cocking handle (In final version this will be on rubber bands. It will be pulled back and lock into place, and pulling the trigger will cause it to snap forward.) and removable clip (With .50 cal Lego bullets inside! In the final version, there will be a mechanized removal system, as currently it is just pushing two bricks together which locks it)
Rear shoulder stock
A detailed Lego scope
View from front. Note the flashlight/laser pointer/thermal imager/ whatever you want it to be.
Here it is with the scope detached and the flippable Ironsights flipped up.

Fully mechanized bipod can be pushed to pretty much any angle relative to the gun. Two crossbars lock the bipod legs at that angle relative to eachother so that they don't just fall to the sides.
An example of the movability of it.
Unlike most Lego bipods, I engineered the crossbars on mine to be able to fold in, so that the bipod can be flipped up and the legs flipped parallel to eachother without removing the crossbars. Also note that in 'carrying mode' with the bipod up, I flipped up the handle.
You can see through the vents except for those blocked by the barrel inside the gun.

Hope you liked it, please comment and rate. If you want to see the mechanized version as soon as it comes out, add me to your favorite builders!

Great! The muzzle break and scope are outstanding. The front looks much like my AR-201, but whatever... I like it!
Oh wow, you're right. We both added a sort of grip which extends outward with slopes. Well, great minds think alike!
Thanks for all the comments and 'like's everybody, I've never gotten so many in less that 24 hours!
If you're going to make a functioning trigger, you might want to make the gun actually shoot... judging by the length of the charging handle the gun should only require three or four normal rubber bands to send a shot too far for you to find it again. I recommend techinc pins and pegs for ammo, they're fairly common and an easy size to work with.
