L85A2 (1:1)
My LEGO® rendition of the Enfield SA80 rifle from the United Kingdom!
About this creation
Having been building mostly WWII weapons lately, I wanted to construct a more modern gun for a change; my new ‘SA80’ is not only my most modern-looking replica to date, but also my first bullpup rifle (i.e. having the breech and magazine situated behind the trigger group), my first gun model to utilize tan-colored LEGO® elements, and my first to feature a sight attachment, in this case, the ‘Sight Unit Small Arms, Trilux’ or SUSAT. My first gun scope, the SUSAT features the real one’s inner ‘German post’ reticle; I’m currently considering the feasibility of illuminating this with a LEGO light brick to simulate the actual SUSAT’s tritium-powered light. The model rifle features a pull-back trigger, sliding bolt, opening dust-cover, moving fire-selector switch, and removable magazine (which is simply a copy of my M16’s magazine; it’s nice how the NATO standardization has made my LEGO gun building a little easier!).

The Enfield L85A2 (nicknamed the 'SA80' or 'Small Arms for the 1980's' during development) is the standard assault rifle of the United Kingdom and although it initially suffered from reliability issues (for which it has gained a poor reputation), the L85 has been upgraded to the A2 configuration by Heckler & Koch and greatly improved in its service.

[Overall Dimensions: 30.8” long, 2.3” wide, and 11.3” high (from top of scope to bottom of magazine). Total Weight: 2.7 lbs. First completed on December 22, 2011; deconstructed on June 27, 2012.]

Quoting Andrew Gibbs Cole, I love your weapons, and you have been one of my favorite creators for quite some time, along with mydifferentusername (you should check him out on YouTube if you haven't). I was wondering if you might take a request or two, and I would like to place one if you do. You have yet to make/ publish a sniper/ anti-material rifle, and I think that seeing you make the Gepard GM6 would be truly amazing.
Thanks for the comment, Andrew! I will definitely keep this rifle in mind. I have played around with the idea of making a sniper rifle before, thinking about the AWM Lapua for example, but have always had other projects to work on. Perhaps after I finish my LMG, I might look at a sniper...

Quoting Darkbird4 (The guy Who used to be known as Raven) Hey Cole I'm not going to be a noob and ask for Instructions or anything, I just wanted to let you know that this Is truly a Genuine masterpiece ( not that you didn't know that already ) and to Tell you that you're a great inspiration not only to me but to several builders out there. ( oh wow That sounded even cheesier than I thought it would ) @ PinkStormtrooper: ha, yes!
Darkbird, I was just reading your comment again tonight, and I want to let you know that I feel very honored to get feedback like this from one of my fellow builders. It didn't sound cheesy to me. ~Cole

This is super awesome! I love the handle and the design you used for the trigger guard. I also like how you made your SUSAT sight. The use of those antenna pieces is ingenious. You should make a Dragunov sniper rifle. Seeing as you have all those brown pieces(from your AK-47) you would be one of the few people on MOCpages to make an accurate one. Also, I bet you could make a really nice scope for it too.

Hi Cole! I was wondering if you could build a larger weapon like a Minigun or a Bazooka but I know they are quite hard!. I love the L85A2/SA80 so I would love to see more british guns being made! P.S Although I have already asked for quite a lot of hard guns, I would really want to see a Luger or Automag for they are my favourite Handguns...EVER!!! P.P.S I am so sorry to hear that your guns were removed from Brickcon!!! They should be ashamed. Keep On Brickin,!

Quoting Marauder Man Love it You better have all the guns at Brickcon 2012, or I will track you down.
I would love to bring them all to BrickCon again, but the event coordinators have told me that I can't show my weapons there again; unfortunately, I'm no longer allowed to display them at the venue as they are too realistic (they can be mistaken for the real guns) and thus highly controversial. I was actually told at the very end of the closing ceremonies, after the last public exhibition had closed, that a few people had voiced some concern and a Seattle police officer had even come by and talked to the show's management about it (though not to me). BrickCon is not willing to support me in this, and as I no longer have the pleasure of showing my creations to the public there, I'm no longer planning to attend BrickCon anymore. I don't know right now whether I will be able to display my models at other events, but anyway, thanks for the comment!

Holy muck! This is just perfect! I don't see a single thing to fix... Sadly I can't make anything for Christmas cause I get my new bricks today... And did you order complete new bricks for this gun? If you did they went for good!..

In all honesty, I don't like the real-life L85A2's design, but I think this creation is simply brilliant! I especially like the butt-pad's ridged design; extremly creative! Overall, a fabulous piece of work!

It's great to see a new creation from you! You made a nice replica, the tan bricks really enhance it. Even though I don't really like the shape of the handguard, I really love the rest! And by the way, every time I brainstormed for different guns to replicate, this gun was always the one bothering me, it's so simple, yet some shapes make it really hard to express in Lego. Keep it up!
