H&K P9S
A Heckler & Koch P9S pistol in Lego, with moving slide.
About this creation
H&K was formed in 1949, manufacturing the G3 series rifles for the German Bundsweher. Their first pistol design, the HK4, could use 4 different calibres by switching barrels, and their next, the VP70, was the first pistol to have a polymer frame. Neither were great successes however, and their third design was more conventional, although it did use an interesting locking system. This system was roller-locked delayed blowback, also used in the aforementioned G3 series, and, until recently, the mainstay of all HK rifles. Put simply, this system uses a bolt with little rollers [think paint rollers, painting horizontally] on each side. When the bolt was forward these rollers fit nicely into recessed in the sides of the receiver, and when the gun fired the bolt's rearward movement was slowed, because the rollers had to roll into the bolt for it to move. This kept the chamber closed until gas pressures had subsided [all rifles have some method of locking the bolt closed; the time it takes for it to move back and forth is still EXTREMELY fast].

In any case, I wanted to make a pistol with a moving slide, and went ahead with the HK P9S design [the S indicates double-action]. I also tryed some new things with texture on the grips, as suggested by TheQ of LAML. So, have a look and tell me what you think.

   This view shows a few of the features, like the magazine release, and the shape of the grip. You can also see the ejection port at the top center of the slide.

   Once again a right side view, this angle lets you see the slide a bit more.

   Plain view showing most features. The ejection port looks deeper than it is in this picture.

   Here's a new feature: a detachable magazine! Hopefully it isn't some ridiculously tiny thing...



Enlarge image
   Well, it was fun while it lasted. I tried to make the magazine as large as possible, but in the end the grip design forced me into this unrealistic size.

   Left side. Look closely and you can see the saftey on the slide, with a red dot showing that it is disengaged.

   I like these sights, they remind me of the video game America's Army.



Enlarge image
   Ooooh.. and here it is! My first pistol with a moving slide.



Enlarge image
   Left side. You can see what I mean about the ejection port. When seen from the right it looks like it goes all the way across the top of the slide in a big square cut, but really it only cuts into the right hand side.



Enlarge image
   The grip texture, as suggested by TheQ. Thanks for your good criticism!



Enlarge image
   Top view, once again you understand about the ejection port. Also you might want to check out the sights.



Enlarge image
   This pistol also has a semi-realistic field strip.



Enlarge image
   The only reason I use these "on the book" pictures is to show you exactly what picture I used to get the size right. Left hand page shows P9S pistols.



Enlarge image
   A couple final pictures. This shows the biggest fault with my version of the P9S: the unrealisticaly square-ish and wide slide [4 studs wide].



Enlarge image
   Slide retracted, from the front. My pistol does not have slide locking switch, these pictures are staged with an internal locker to show you what the slide looks like when back, without my hand in the way.

Pretty awesome P9S, it would be nice to incorporate a bigger magazine into the grip, but I have tried, and it just makes the grip unstable. I like the grip texture, it really gives it a rugged look. Great job.

yet another great gun from robert p. a 3-stud pistol would be the best though,what i suggested to lawrence fetter, you should try making a USP Tactical, just a cool gun in my opinion

Your Gunsmithing is getting much better. The wing that hangs over the hand at the back appears a little short. Here's a challenge: try to expose a bit of barrel when the slide comes back like the real thing. I don't like the handgrip texture, sorry. The trigger guard is looking better. Now just to figure out how to smooth it out. Your ejection port is looking good. Great sights; I never thought of that. Good job on the slopes of the gun. The front of the real P9S is a little squareish, so you didn't do a bad job on that. But, 4 studs is a little wide as I discovered with my Glock. 3 studs is hard to work with though, so there's a tradeoff. Keep up the awesome work. [4/5]
