[VIDEO] The fully functional LEGO sniper rifle

Jack Streat isn’t a man who does things by halves. So when he sat down to recreate a Lee Enfield sniper rifle out of LEGO Technics, he didn’t just build a static replica – he built a fully functional model. Damn.

Okay, “fully functioning” is stretching things a bit. I mean, the thing only p-toos LEGO bricks about five feet, so it’s not going to wake your cat, let alone take down big game. But it is some engineering feat, and even boasts a working bolt-action mechanism and removable clips. Here’s a neat video of Streat taking down terrorist LEGO bricks around his house:
