HK 416 working assault rifle . a bolt action HK 416 that fires from 10-brick magazines . this is a working bolt action model of the amazing Heckler & Koch 416. it is a bolt action versoin, and loads from a 10-round magazine. bolt action means that to load a round, you must pull back the cocking handle, and then release is (or push it forward if its stuck). you can then pull the trigger, and the round that you loaded will be fired out of the barrel.
as usual, i made a video
basically, the 416 is a very reliable and versatile gun, coming in 4 different barrel lengths, and with various easy-to-install add ons, like tactical foregrips and scopes. i didnt make any of these, because i ran out of black bricks.
this gun has now replaced the G36C as my favourite gun. it is soooo cool!!!
watch the future weapons video on youtube to see just how reliable it is.
the mechanism is very similar to my lee enfield SMLE,i made it again because it was such a good and reliable mechanism, jamming once in maybe 20 shots, which is amazing reliability for a brick-shooting, self-loading, magazine-fed lego gun.

the stock (not retractable, i ran out of pieces)
the barrel and RIS rails (not very realistic)
gun with magazine detached
rear sight. based on the MP5 sight, this one offers different ranges on its rotating viewfinder
handle pulled back
the strange magazine release found on M16s, M4s, and of course the 416. the idea is that a conventional lever can be accidentally disengaged by twigs etc while in the jungle. tbh i dont see the point of it.
the 10-brick magazines (i made 2)
