Lego arms: Gun maker ordered to stop selling automatic pistol that looks like a toy
Lego has forced a US gun manufacturer to stop selling an automatic pistol that looked like a child’s toy.
Culper Precision in Utah was selling the BLOCK19 – a modified Glock handgun – for between $549 and $765
Lego, the Danish company, issued a cease-and desist letter and the maker has since stopped selling the gun. Less than 20 were sold.
When it launched the weapon the gun maker said: “We wanted the second amendment to simply be too painful to tread on, so there was only one logical solution.
“Here’s one of those childhood dreams coming to life, the Block19 prototype, yes you can actually build Legos onto it. We superglued it all together and surprisingly it survived a little over 1,500 rounds in full auto.”
It said the aim was to show that shooting sports were “SUPER FUN!”
