|Welcome to BrickGun, designers and builders of the world's best weapon models made from LEGO® bricks.
We specialize in creating the coolest, most realistic kits that can be built using 100% genuine LEGO® parts. Each model is life-sized, with accurate dimensions and details. They feature functioning mechanics such as triggers, hammers, slides, safeties and magazines so they not only look like the real thing, they work like the real thing as well.
Take a look at our models and see why we believe they are the best that can be made. Once you do, we think you'll agree that they are The Coolest LEGO® Brick Weapons in the World.
The BrickGun 8-bit Controller is now on sale!
The latest in our line of non-gun models has just been released. Based on the iconic Nintendo Entertainment System® (NES) gamepad controller from the 80's.
Just like all BrickGun designs, our 8-bit Controller model is life-sized and contains as many details as are possible with LEGO® bricks.
While none of the items function mechanically, the BrickGun 8-bit Controller features a raised and slightly outlined D-Pad, raised Select/Start buttons and raised A/B buttons. The "Select"/"Start" text, A/B button text and "Nintendo" logo are all represented. The black, white, gray and red color scheme of the console gamepad that we all know and love is recreated in fantastic detail. All sides and the back are smooth and flush. We believe, like all BrickGun models, that this is the best possible version of the classic gamepad that is possible with LEGO® bricks.
Kits and instruction downloads are available for sale now, so check out the BrickGun 8-bit Controller page for details.
Lots of new builder information and assistance on the site
We've just launched new sections of our website with Helpful Building Tips, a Guide to Following our Instructions, a page providing downloadable/printable labels that we use to store and organize the parts in our design studio and a page providing extensive LEGO® Dimension Grids, Technic® connection points and Brick dimensions.
All of this new information is geared toward making your building experience more enjoyable as well as assisting original designers and builders via some of the tools our designers rely on in the BrickGun Studio. Enjoy!
The BrickGun Python .357 Revolver is now on sale!
For years our fans have requested we build a revolver and now we have. We wanted to incorporate a spinning cylinder that could also swing out, as well as a hammer that can be cocked and "fired" when the trigger is pulled... and WE DID IT! The model, like all of our models, is 1:1 scale, exactly life-sized with as many details as we could pack in. It's one of our largest models, providing the old school "hand cannon" look and feel that a magnum revolver provides. So check out the BrickGun Python .357 now!
1977 Joystick Model Now on Sale
Now, for something COMPLETELY different... The BrickGun designers have just released The 1977 Joystick, a model based on the iconic joystick of the Atari™ 2600™ video game system from the 1970s.
The model, like all BrickGun models, is exactly life-sized at 1:1 scale and features a "functional" joystick that moves in all directions and self-centers. Don't worry, new gun designs are also on the way, but this departure is the first in a series of "geek" models/toys appealing to gamers, techies and anyone who enjoys the same nerdy things that our designers do.
Just like our gun models, kits are available that include everything necessary: 237 Genuine LEGO™ pieces, rubber bands and a digital download of easy-to-follow color instructions guiding you through each step of the build.
More details can be found on The 1977 Joystick page.

International Shipping Rate Increase
All BrickGun international shipping rates have increased. This is due to the recent rate increase imposed by the USPS which went into effect on 1/27/2013. Due to an increase of over 41% on small, flat rate, priority shipments (which make up over 95% of our international orders), we have had no choice but to adjust our rates accordingly.
More information on the USPS rate increase can be found here and here.
BrickGun Featured on IGN's Weekly "Cheap, Cool, Crazy"
BrickGun models (specifically the BG22 with Magazine and the MP5) were featured in the "Lego Edition" of IGN's weekly cool gadget video. We're appreciative of the IGN staff for finding our models worthy of a nod (cooler than Harry Potter, some might say ;) ).
You can get a look at our models in action and see some of the working features in their video linked below.

BrickGun to Discontinue Printed Instruction Shipping
Starting on July 11th, 2009, BrickGun will no longer ship printed instructions with our model kits.
This decision was made in an effort to reduce the amount of paper we consume and print (thereby reducing the number of trees destroyed and energy used), to reduce the shipping weight of our packages (thereby reducing the amount of fuel used by our shipping carriers) and to improve our overall "green" status.
Moving forward, we will be providing download links to our instruction .PDF files which can be printed or viewed locally by the buyer on his/her PC or Mac after purchase. These files can be easily opened/viewed/printed using Adobe's free Acrobat Reader software. The instruction downloads are the same documents that we have been selling for years and are identical to the pages we used to ship with our kits, but this way there is less energy used and less waste created in the world.
