Build LEGO Versions of Four of the World’s Most Impressive Guns.
San Francisco, CA —(Ammoland.com)- Jack Streat is an accomplished LEGO weapons builder whose YouTube videos have over 16 million views.
Now he’s the author of a new book about building LEGO weapons, and he’s only 17 years old.
In LEGO Heavy Weapons (No Starch Press, May 2012, 368 pp., $24.95, ISBN: 9781593274122), Streat offers a collection of building instructions for four truly impressive, 1:1-scale LEGO replicas of the world’s most iconic firearms.
LEGO builders will learn to create a massive Desert Eagle handgun with blowback action, plus three accurate brick-shooting marvels: an AKS-74U assault rifle with folding stock, a bolt-action Lee Enfield sniper rifle (aka. Jungle Carbine), and a pump-action SPAS 12 combat shotgun.
According to No Starch Press founder Bill Pollock, “Readers will instantly recognize these models from their favorite Tarantino films and videogames like Counter-Strike and Call of Duty.” Pollock continues, “At last, LEGO fans can turn that pile of dusty bricks into insane weapons that they can brandish while running wild through their homes. The world may never be the same.”
