British engineering student builds realistic, functioning guns out of LEGOs

This kid’s a real chip off the old Glock.

As gun control dominates Capitol Hill and dinner discussions nationwide, one British engineering student is on a block-by-block mission to put more guns into more homes — one LEGO block at a time.

Jack Streat, an 18-year-old University of Durham student, is a well-known LEGO weapons builder with more than 30,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel, where he showcases four life-size, functional replicas of the world’s most recognizable firearms, including the imposing Desert Eagle with blowback action and an AKS-74U assault rifle with folding stock.
