Barrett M82A1 . Because it is necessary to kill a fly with a sledge hammer. This is a 1:1 scale version of the Barrett M82, or the more widely known name of Barrett .50 cal. Jon Treasure edited main pic. . Well, after countless building hours and Bricklink orders, this beast of a sniper rifle is done. With nearly 3000 pieces, this thing measures 4 feet long and weighs about 6 pounds. I tried to get this model as close to the real Barrett as possible. I included an accurate color scheme (no Pybrick, I'm afraid it's not black ;), attatchments like scope, bipod, and carry handle, and working elements. I think I did a good job.
Info on the real Barrett:
The Barrett M82 is a recoil operated, semi-automatic sniper rifle designed in 1980. It fires a .50 caliber BMG bullet from a 10 round magazine. With a maximum effective range of 5,906 feet, no enemy is safe. Weighing in at around 30 lbs., this sniper is considered a heavy-weight. It's been featured on many video games and movies, and is also used in the millitary.
LEGO Barrett Features:
-Spinning knobs on scope
My Barrett is a little over 4 feet long.
Modified version of Pybrick scope.
Slide pulled back.
Magazine. This is bigger than you think.
Looking through the iron sight.
Muzzle brake. Thanks Pybrick. You can also see the barrel. This was tough to make sturdy while still making it round and not to big. I used ALOT of jumper plates for this.
One last look.
Note: For all you QuIcK_sCoPeRz out there, yes, the Intervention is a better QS gun. But in terms of actual sniping, the Barrett owns. Period.
