M16A2 (1:1) [Improved]
My LEGOŽ brick-built M16 replica, updated as of November 2011 and ready for battle!
About this creation
A lifesize model of the M16A2 assault rifle featuring a pull-back trigger, removeable magazine, and moving "fire-selector switch." The weapon now sports a much better muzzle brake, stronger handle, and curved trigger. [November 20, 2011 update: I have now made the pistol grip slightly thinner and strengthened it, have improved the handguard around the barrel, redesigned the ejector port cover so that it easily opens and closes, and have inserted a 'working' cocking handle as well.]

[Overall dimensions: 39.6" long, 2" wide, and 9.75" high. Overall weight: 2.6 lbs.] First completed on June 9, 2010.







[Here you can see my modified handle design; the pistol grip better follows the contours of the stock and receiver and is much stronger--I can now hold the rifle here one-handed.]




[Visible here is the new cocking handle, pulled back (there's no tension on it).]




[I've added more ridges to the handguard to make it more realistic; now if only I could eliminate the bricks completely and use smooth, curved slopes...Or, for fun, replace this with an M203 mounting. Hmmm...]


[In this version of the model, I've gone back in and redesigned the front post sight, adding an inner prong to better simulate the 'look-down' experience of the model; now I'm thinking that I need to change the rear sight and add an aperture before I truly get it right!]




[Below are two photos of an older version of the model to illustrate the gun's removeable magazine...]



[...And the connection point between the buttstock and receiver which helps make the 39.6" gun more portable.]



Thanks for looking; now go build something better!

Awesome looking gun. Looks like a very sturdy build. My M4 can be broken into 2 parts and can be held one-handed too. At least until I attach the 203 Grenade Launcher underneath it. Nice work!

Also, I came up with an idea for a working charging handle, if that would help you. Unfortuantley it falls out when the gun is aimed into the air. I also used it on my M16A4 Tribute series: 1.on top of the M16's reciever, place 4x whatever plates on. 2. place a 1x2 cheese slope at each end, each side. There should be a permanent 2 stud wide gap in between the cheese slopes. 3.Next, place bricks along the sides. After that, place some studless tiles on the inside. 4.Cap with more 4x whatever plates, and line the edges with studless 1x whatever tiles. 5. Obtain a black 2X8 piece, and put a 6X1 studless tile on one of the ends. This will be the charging handle. 6. Place studless tiles on the 2x8 after the 6x1 studless tile. Insert it into the hole created In steps 1-4, and enjoy! If your carrying handle is not two studs wide, then you need to use a piece of greater width then six studs. Also, step four will create a "picatinny" rail not found on the M16A2, and is optional. However, it looks better as when an attachment is placed inbetween the studless 1X whatevers, it masks the studs and creates a more natural look.

Quoting A Dying Breed COLE! I have an idea for a gun that I would REALLY want you to build: An FN P90. That would be awesome!
Thanks a lot for the suggestion, Chris, but I'm not planning on building this one; many people have already constructed great P90's, and there are a lot of other weapons that I want to work on first. ~Cole

Quoting A Dying Breed (Formerly Chris Blizard) Im very sorry to ask again, but do you have the dimensions (meaning length) of the receiver from rear of foregrip to the stock connection point? I've been looking for two months and haven't found the slightest hint of the size.
That's alright, Chris; the length on my model that you've requested is 25 studs long (about 8 inches). Are you building an M16 of your own right now?

Quoting Daan Reynaert working charging handle???
Alas, I haven't yet found a way to make the cocking handle/tab slide back and forth on the gun without compromising the look of the receiver, though this is something that I want to fix in the near future.

Superb work! There's been some great M16 models here before, and now they've finally got some serious competition! I especially like how you curved the magazine, though. most people just angle the bricks, like on Pybrick's HK416: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/65757 But I like your method even better!

Quoting A Dying Breed (Formerly Chris Blizard) Also, I'm curious. On my M16, the foregrip bends due to it's weight. Mine isn't even solid, as it has a RIS. Your foregrip is (on your old version) as far as I can tell one stud shorter than on mine. How do you make your foregrip not bend?
Good question, Chris! The foregrip on my rifle is completely solid, thus a little heavy; it would not be able to support its own weight except for the fact that it's built on long 6 x N plates (each is at least six studs wide) that are pressed together in multiple layers. Each plate possesses a lot of clutch power from the sheer amount of studs it has, and when multiple plates are forced together, the end result tends to be quite strong and resistant to bending/breaking.
