Gun Show - Purist Edition
No, those aren't Brickarms... they're perfectly purist weapons of mass humiliation, great for ending disagreements quickly.
About this creation
I'm a purist. I don't like custom stickers and clonebrands and so-and-so's sharpied clones. I even started a group for like-minded people.
Nevertheless, I was very reluctant to join the purist v. non-purist debate, since I knew it wouldn't get me anywhere. I would stay a purist, those who disagreed with me would stay non-purists, and it would just be a waste of typing for all involved.
Instead, I decided to compile some MOCs of alternates to common non-purist methods. This is only the first; future MOCs may include purist custom clones or clever uses for LEGOŽ stickers that come with sets.
That being said, here's my collection of purist LEGO guns. Enjoy!

This is a repeat of the main photo. I probably spent less than an hour, although not all at once, making all of them. The possibilities are doubtlessly endless if you spend more time on making such things(see Nannan Zhang's Gun Museum to see what I mean).


Here are the two launchers featured. The top one is a rocket-propelled grenade with launcher, loosely inspired by the RPG-7. The bottom one is a shoulder-held missile launching system, inspired by nothing in particular but capable of impersonating a variety of such systems, including the well-known Stinger launch system.


These are some submachine guns and light machine guns. The influences are varied, but include the Uzi, MP-5, and M249. These show the versatility of the LEGOŽ hand element(as a magazine, barrel, or collapsing stock) and the LEGOŽ blaster pistol element.


These are all assualt rifles or carbines. On top is perhaps the most famous gun of all time, the AK-47. Just below it is an alternate version with a slightly more accurate stock. I like how these guns turned out, sticking a clone antenna accesory in a technic pin is pure genius! Does anyone know who first came up with that technique?
Next is a nondescript assualt rifle with a bayonet attached. The rubber band is a perhaps inelegant solution, but it allows attachments to sit right on the barrel, for a nicely realistic look.
Finally, the M-4, which has been shown off before, here and here. This is the only gun in my collection to use a damaged element, the closest I'm willing to come to non-purism. It's also one of my favorites. It's a bit larger than minifigure scale, but works nicely with my hardsuits.


Finally, another one of my favorites, the sniper/antimateriel rifle. There were a variety of influences here, including the well-known Barrett .50 caliber antimateriel rifle (that's right, COD kiddies, it's not actually classified as a sniper rifle). I just got that hammer element with the immense #10188 Death Star, and liked how it looked as a muzzle brake, even if it is a little oversized and assymetrical. The bipod was a moment of inspiration for me... LEGOŽ hand elements again prove their worth.


Here are some posing pictures. This SWAT-inspired minifigure seems to have stolen Phipson's sunglasses. I have no idea how fond Phipson is of them, but this minifigure may need to use his light machine gun to keep them.


The sunglasses theivery continues with an undercover agent sporting Fassio's shades and a submachine gun with a collapsing stock. This guy's days are definitely numbered. Yuri has battle mechs.


Finally, my sigfig doing some wishful thinking with a large rifle. It might be overkill for hunting, siggy.

Well, that's it. These techniques are all free for copying, as long as credit goes to me for creating them. Let me know if you come up with any other purist weapons (yes, just this once I'll let you promote your stuff in my comments section), I'd love to see what you can come up with.
Feel free to debate about purism in the comments, but only because it will increase the popularity of this MOC. For a MOC representing the other side of the debate, go here. Note that I am not endorsing the arguments presented there, but providing them in the interest of fairness.
If you agree with my purist stance, or even if you just want to see more purist creations, I have just the group for you.
Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Silver S-73 hey if purist is no sharpie no cutting pieces and stuff like that the n the m-4 isnt purist the tip of tha barrel is cut,i have 20-10 vision dont decieve
You obviously didn't bother to actually read the description of that one.
Quoting Andre Castillo Is there any group that is about being purist, if there is one tell me, i want to join one. And LOL on the weapons of mass humilition!
Yes, there is! http://mocpages.com/group.php/14557
Quoting Bob the inconceivably invincible As a purist, I find these 1000 times better than the brickarms guns. As a MOCist, I also find them 1000 times better. Thus, I find these guns 1,000,000 times better than brickarms guns.
Quoting Nick white vary cool nice detail
Quoting Isaiah Marc You amaze me with that detail and how the design is made! Great job.
Thanks all!

Yeah, it's been a while. I'm hoping to get back into the building habit with some more stuff soon... time will tell.

Quoting Michael Rutherford Ahhhh. Pure as driven snow. So many cool options now with all the strange little guns and smaller mini-fig accessories. This is probably the best approach to the great debate. You display viable and competitive alternatives to those who oppose your view. Definitely a constructive approach. You display your position on the issue with practical application, not theory or value driven rhetoric. Nicely done. Attack!
Reading this (very kind, thank you!) comment reminded me that for some reason I'd neglected to add you to my favorites, despite a known love for your builds. So thanks for the comment and reminding me to change that!

Quoting Max Watson you gotta love those black minifig hands...
Amen.
Quoting Mars Ultor(Formerly James Witt) Wow. I like these. I'm going to use some. What you should really make is an M-60. Man would that be nice.
It looks like an interesting challenge. You could try it yourself. I'd recommend you start with a a long blaster rifle element, since it has the correct stock shape.
Quoting The Timinater ! these guns are amazing!

Quoting Blake Baer Excellent draft Mark! I am planning on doing another community project on Purism, similar to my glossary. I will definitely use you as a resource. Great usage all over.
That glossary of yours is brilliant, by the way. I've used it from time to time. I can't wait to see what you come up with on purism. You may want to check out the Purist Group's "How purist is purist?" discussion for more resources, I've certainly found it helpful in formulating my own opinions and amassing knowledge of other people's opinions.
Quoting Tom Simon Oh thank God. I tend not to like these things because the are usually retar?ed. Good thing I didn't pass over this too quickly to realize you had actually built something. And gorgeous examples of great parts usage these are! Bravo!
Thanks! I, too, dislike most displays of minifigure-scale weaponry, simply because they're usually nothing but Brickarms-related bragging. It seems like displaying someone else's creation rather than your own. I find it refreshing to see someone else's collection of actual brickbuilt guns, and I'm glad to hear that this MOC is providing you with a similar experience.
Quoting jt froh I try to stay a purist, however, I will not go against those who are not pure, as long as they DON'T USE MEGABLOCKS! I would like to say I am a purist, but I do own some things from BrickArms (although I only trust BrickArms and the original Lego, not those other companies (BrickForge, The Little Arms Shop, FireStartoys.com)). I try not to use BrickArms unless totally nessesary. However, I AM NOT ARGUING EITHER SIDE!
I think you just did, but I'll respect your wishes and not debate about it. Thanks for your comment.

Quoting Matthew Novosad I definatly get what you are saying. But as I said, I LOVE history. Which is why I am planning a career in Archeology. The research, for me, makes me put more thought, creativity, and to work harder on it, for historical acuratness. Of course, I haven't made many historical MOCs lately, that are accurate and what not, Last one was a while ago. Anyway, nice chatting with you. /insert Silly old Duffer Smiley here.

Quoting Sebeus I costum guns are so superflues, binoculars, some hands and original lego weapons do just fine and best of all, you won't get angry comments from purist excentrics :P
Hahaha, it sounds like someone is familiar with some of my recent comments...

  December 28, 2010
Quoting Matthew Novosad Not bad, not bad. But, a lot of them just don't seem very symmetrical, like a lot of guns are. I like Brickarms etc... 'Cause they are realistic, especially for historical things, which is what I really like. I'm like Mister Bones. Partially purist. Though, I wouldn't mind cutting a firefighter helmet or two and putting fuzzy felt at the top for a large crest, and some cheetah like pattern felt stuff on the side to make some British Dragoon Helmets. Which reminds me. I gotta get to that.
I like not using non-purist techniques because it forces me to work harder and put more thought and creativity into a MOC. As you pointed out, it does frequently result in less accurate results than non-purism would yield, but sometimes it leads to new and intersting techniques. Happy MOCing.

Quoting Mister Bones Very, very good. See kids, you can make good looking weapons out of Lego. No need for cutting, glueing, painting, etc. Don't get me wrong, I like Brickarms, for I am only an 80% purist, if there is such a beast, but these weapons look great. Cheers W.Mark.
Thanks. I've actually encountered quite a few partial purists, particularly since I started that purist group.
