The FAMAS G2 was developed in 1994 to comply with NATO standards by accepting standard NATO magazines and by employing tighter barrel rifling to accurately fire both older 5.56 mm 55 gr (3.6 g) ammunition and new standard 5.56mm NATO 62gr ammo. The G2 also included several other upgrades taken from the G1 model, such as an enlarged trigger guard and improved hand guards made from reinforced fiberglass instead of plastic. The French Navy purchased the FAMAS G2 in 1995 and issued it to their Fusiliers Marins and Commandos Marine. However, the French army refused to purchase the G2, preferring to rely on the FAMAS F1 as their primary rifle.
About this creation
Probably the hardest lego bullpup gun model yet.With many failed prototypes, It all lead up to this.Here is the FAMAS made out of 1542 bricks.The model here is the G2 variant retrofitted with the FELIN kit which appears in most FPS games such as the modern Battlefield games and Call Of Duty.I decided to make this variant because there are plenty of models based on the F1 and less of this.
The charging handle works nicely as it can be pulled fully to the back and to the front.
The bipod can be deployed into position and can be fold back into place.
Aiming down the sights.
During my free time, I decided to make the F1 variant just for fun.The model consists of 1556 bricks.The biggest feature is the huge carrying handle and the design of the charging handle.
