My first M4 assault rifle
My original M4 assault rifle, with M203 grenade launcher. The rifle fires elastic bands and the M203G.L. fires little paper darts.
About this creation
A couple of years ago a friend called James, who is also into Lego Technic, had this ambition to build a working gun out of Lego. We built the first gun together. It wasn't supposed to be at all realistic, and it fired a long arrow using elastic. The trigger was attached to a ratchet, and when it was released the two prongs that were holding the elastic back, with the arrow between them, were released and the arrow fired. We made a few more of these guns, but we really wanted to make one that fired several shots in 'semi automatic' mode. Then james came up with the idea of firing the elastic bands themselves, off four rotating prongs. I built a PSG-1 sniper rifle using the idea, and designed a type of trigger to fit it, and we've been using that method ever since. The PSG fired over the top of the gun, but I built the M4 assault rifle to fire through the barrel. The top of the hand-guard opened up for reloading. The attached M203 grenade launcher fires a single V-shaped paper dart, and can be removed easily.

PS.
I've been inundated with requests for instructions recently. Sorry, but not only do I not have time to make instructions, but also the models have usually been dismantled by the time people ask.

Very good! Don, do you realize that you just brought down the rating of an excellent Moc because there were no instructions? Think of how you will affect things next time.

i really like the accuracy of your design. I also like the overall design and the fact that it is still able to shoot rubber bands. Check out my lego guns.

i think its very sad to call someone a terrorist because the clip is wrong, you must say that when you know he is a real terrorist, and you(JOEM) could better say, sorry but the m4 has a long clip or something like that, and this gun is cooler than your mg42 coz u used tape and the art of lego is to make it without tape
