Lego Halo 3 Assault Rifle - MA5C
The MA5C Assault Rifle, from Halo 3
About this creation
My Lego rendition of the MA5C Assault rifle from Halo 3.

From Halo Nation:
"The MA5C Assault rifle is an air-cooled, gas-operated, magazine fed weapon designed for automatic fire. The MA5C is the third rifle in the MA5 Series and has been in service for more than 50 years. The MA5C has an attached electronics suite that provides information on rounds remaining in the magazine, compass heading, as well as several other "housekeeping" functions. The rifle performs well in a variety of environments especially given the perceived delicacy of the attached electronics suite."

Features:
~Spring-loaded charging handle
~Removable magazine
~Removable "electronics suite"
Built without glue



The rifle is full-scale, and weighs about 5 kilos

I'm happy with the shaping, but feel that the front angles could have been a bit better.

I'm very happy with all else.

The ammo counter owes a lot to Nick Brick's design - I don't know if it's the same design, but I suspect it is.

The bolt isn't quite game-accurate, but my earlier, accurate version broke after a few cycles, so I replaced it with this sturdier iteration.

It slides back easily, and locks up in this position. A simple flick to the left lets it shoot home.

The magazine is a brick, but it's scaled about right.

It slides into the receiver smoothly and is held securely in place.

The grip area was a little tricky to shape properly, but I'm happy with the result.

The barrel is actually a lot more stable than I had worried it would be.

The flashlight. I could probably squeeze an LED in there, if I knew how to do that.

A top down shot, because I just wanted to keep taking photos.

I built the electronics suite/barrel shroud to be easily removable, and I think the rifle looks interesting like this.

The key components of the rifle.

4th Wall:
The MA5C is one of my favourite fictional guns. While I like Halo CE's MA5B, with it's 60-round magazine, the C variant offered improved range and was a little more useful.
I just adore the shape and the style of it - it's gorgeous.

I've actually had this lying around, nearly done, for a year. I finally got around to polishing it off and taking good photos, and I hope you guys like it.

This one really does need a bridge and some engines and an entry in the SHIPtember group on Flickr! Another impressive weapon, both in terms of its size and the smoothness of the build.
