Infantry Weapons (small arms)
Typical infantry small-arms employed by our armed forces.
About this creation
M22 Battle Rifle
The M22 Battle Rifle is the standard projectile weapon for the armed forces. It is lightweight, highly accurate and has satisfactory stopping power against unarmored or lightly armored targets. It has an effective range of 1000m in Earth’s atmosphere and gravity (eag).

The M22 fires 4.8mm caseless ammunition. The feed mechanism is a unique rotary breech, similar to a 3 chambered revolver cylinder, which is completely enclosed within the frame and firing chamber of the weapon. This setup allows for high, sustained rates of fire, with almost no possibility of weapon malfunction. In the unlikely event of ammunition misfire, the rotary breech will eject the unspent cartridge, with no additional effect on the continued operation of the weapon.

The weapon can fire in a semi-automatic mode, 3 round burst, and fully automatic at a rate of 800 rounds per minute.

The weapon uses a 50 round circular magazine. It fits into the weapon behind the forward handgrip. When locked into place, it is almost flush with the body of the weapon.

The standard ammunition is an Armor-Piercing Explosive (APE) round. It has a hardened tip capable of penetrating most body armor and soft-skinned vehicles. .1 to .5 milliseconds after impacting a target, the round explodes, causing significant damage to soft tissue and often igniting any combustibles.

The M22 is also fitted with a coaxial 20mm grenade launcher, located directly underneath the main barrel. Up to 3 grenades can be loaded at one time, and fired individually by holding down a thumb lever located on the forward handgrip and pulling the trigger. The range of the grenade launcher is 500m.

Both the standard ammunition and grenade quantity are displayed on digital counters above the posterior handgrip

M22A1 Carbine

The M22A1 is a shortened version of the M22, designed for vehicle crews and security forces. As such, it can hold only one 20mm grenade at a time, and has an effective range of only 800m. Otherwise, it is essentially the same as the long version of the M22. It seems that many soldiers prefer the M22A1 in urban environments, as it is lighter and easier to wield during Close Quarters Battle (CQB)

E-Scope

The M22 is often fitted with the S100 Electronic Scope. This is a multi-mode scope, which integrates electro-optical, infra-red, ultraviolet, thermal and light intensified images. It has an adjustable magnification from 2x to 50x. It can also be integrated with the standard infantry battle helmet, and its image displayed on any Heads-Up Display (HUD) or Visor Display(VD).

M24 Submachine Gun
The M24 is functionally similar to the M22 family of battle rifles, but is a unique weapon unto itself. It uses the same rotary breech mechanism of the M22, and fires the same 4.8mm round. It is not equipped with a grenade launcher.

The M24 has a telescoping stock, which can be completely retracted to be flush with the posterior part of the weapon body. It has only one handgrip, located approximately at the midpoint of its length, and balanced so it can be fired one-handed.

Design Notes:
Thanks to Austin Bailey for the idea for the retractable stock. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=9350

AR-15 Assault Rifle
Whereas a battle rifle is designed to give an infantryman both conventional(kinetic energy) explosive (grenade) firepower, an assault rifle is exclusively a conventional projectile weapon. Typically, however, it is of higher caliber and thus possesses more penetration and stopping power.

The AR-5 is a compact assault rifle with an effective range of 1400m (eag). It fires a 7mm slug, which can penetrate nearly all standard body armor, and up to 10mm of alloy plate. Like the M22, the typical round has an APE warhead, but in the 7mm caliber, is extremely lethal. The weapon is fed by a 30 round box that loads forward of the rear handgrip.

The standard configuration includes the S100 E-scope, detailed above. Due to its effectiveness and accuracy, the AR-5 is the weapon of choice for Special Operations Forces.

MG50 Machine Gun
Light machine guns are used to provide infantry units with additional firepower as a base of fire, but are mobile enough to be used during assault. The MG50 is light enough to be fired from the hip or shoulder.

The MG50 fires a 7mm round, and has an official effective range of 1600m. Combat veterans, however, will claim that “If I can see it, I can hit it” with the MG50. The extended barrel length and sealed firing chamber increase penetration (at 1000m) to 15mm of alloy plate. The weapon can fire at sustained rates of 1000 rounds per minute.

The weapon is normally fed by a 50 round box magazine, but ammunition can also be belt fed. Conceivably, the weapon can accommodate AR-5 magazines, but the action of the MG50 usually damages the AR-5 magazine beyond repair.

E-Scope

The MG50 is typically fitted with the S250 Electronic Scope. It has similar capability as the S100, but magnification is from 2x to 80x. It also has a radar firing mode which allows engagement of targets in complete “black body” conditions (complete absence of target or environmental EM/thermal emissions). The sight also allows auto tracking and sight alignment when firing at moving targets.

MG-70 Machine Gun
The MG70 was originally designated as the M23 battle rifle. It was intended to be a battle rifle with maximum firepower, capable of firing the 7mm kinetic energy round. The weapon proved to be too cumbersome for standard infantry employment, but has been retained by the armed forces and currently serves as a light machine gun. The MG70 is rather heavy and is typically employed while prone or from a braced firing position. The MG70 is normally equipped with an S250 Electronic Scope.

The MG70 fires both kinetic energy and explosive rounds. The conventional capability is similar to the MG50 with a range of 1600m, cyclic rate of 1000 rpm, and similar penetration characteristics. It is fed by a 50 round magazine. The weapon can load up to 5 20mm grenades, with an effective range of 500m.

I really like these weapons. They must have taken a lot of work to make. Making good sized Lego guns is hard! My favorite is the AR-15 assault rifle. Good job!

First off, nice designs for infantry weapons. I've had actually made the carbine at my house before seeing this page, so, a nice coincedince. Two things though. 1. I would like to use these designs on future MOCs, so I will give you credit for any of the weapons I showcase in a MOC. 2. Can I ally with you? You would be a good army that would be a good ally in war. (LEGO war, you know what I mean) Please reply back via email or a comment whenever you can. Did I say good MOCs? Oh well. Good MOCs!

The light saber handles r grey not black an there are no lightsaber handles at all in the LEGO Digital Designer. ps if you want grey handles you could buy the Battle droids pack

You did an execellent job. Don't take this the wrong way, but did you paint any of the guns black so they wouldn't be multi-coloured?

Most of them are absolutely great! The machine guns are a little blocky though. Great scope idea! RESPONSE TO INSANE GRUNT, DAN TROMBLY, & KIETH GOLDMAN: Are too black saber handles, saber handle + can of spraypaint = black saber handle!
