Colt .25 Automatic
A MOCpages first!! (I think??) I had been taking a short break from building muscle cars, and was wondering if I should try something different. Anyway, I was browsing through the guns here at MOCpages, and was surprized to find that nobody had made a replica of Colt's smallest automatic pistol. So, I grabbed a hand full of black pieces and started building. It's not nearly the greatest LEGO pistol ever, I know, but hey! It turned out to be a fun little weekend project.
About this creation
The Colt .25 was designed by John Browing in 1897, and was originally manufactured as the FN model 1905, by FN herstal in Belgium. It wasn't until 1908 that Colt started production of their version, the Model 1908 Vest Pocket pistol. It was designed as a concealed carry weapon, firing the Browning-invented .25 ACP cartridge from a six-round magazine. At only four inches long, it quickly earned a reputation as a small, reliable pocket gun, and saw use on both sides of the law during the 1920's and 30's. Production stopped in 1946, but Colt had enough spare parts left over to produce a few more up until 1948. About 420,700 of these pistols had been made by then, and amazingly, many are still in use today.

Features:

Working slide

Working trigger

Opening ejector port


































You can't see me!




















And now the trigger.



Unfortunately, the model is too small to include a working hammer, but I think I did pretty well with the trigger and slide.



The slide. Duh. Another nice feature would be a working slide lock. Anybody who knows their guns knows that the .25 had a tiny little slide lock, which has been very hard to replicate in LEGO. But I'll keep trying! Yes, the slide snaps forward when you release it. (rubber band power, of course) For this picture, I have a plate connected to the bottom of the slide to keep it from moving forward.



The ejector port. Well, that's about all there is to see of my little weekend project. Hopefully, I'll be able to add that slide lock, and muscle car fans, don't worry! There's more cars coming soon.



Update: August 22nd, 2009. I took another look at the design, and though it could use some slight improvements.


Now I've added the footplate on the front of the grip, a more realistic curve to the trigger guard, and now the barrel doesn't stick out of the front of the slide. Simply put, there's just a few small changes here and there to make the shape of the pistol more realistic.



The real .25 with its big brother, the .32 automatic. Hey, somebody make a .32, quick! There aren't any on MOCpages yet!

thanks for the instructions i managed to add a shell ejecting spring to it, you can load a bullet in and when you pull the slide back it pops out!

Quoting Jan Twardowski please, make instructions! i really want to see mechanism.
I already have instructions for it, but this pistol is just too small to include any sort of mechanism. I'm afraid all you'll find on the inside is a rubber band that pulls the slide forward. http://mocpages.com/folder.php/38180

Quoting Tyler S. Nice is it hard to hold? It looks REALLY tiny!
It's not hard to hold, but it does feel really small in your hand. That must not be much of a problem on the real one though. I've seen a few videos of guys firing them, and it looked like they were doing it without any trouble.

Quoting Dylan Wight please post instructions because all my attempts at pocket pistols ( and most pistols like my glock17) have been failures so just post instructions! BTW if u have enough blocks plz try to make a McMilan .50cal sniper! yours, Darkvisor.
I'll think about it. The instructions shouldn't be as hard as the SMG, since it's so much smaller. Also I don't have enough black bricks to make a .50 caliber. I wish I did, though!
