One thing worth noting about this prototype: it's solid metal! With how busy Will's been with other projects, he's been exploring other fun methods of testing out new BrickArms accessory designs he's cooked up. For the BrickArms Musket, he used a type of 3D printing that fuses small pieces of metal together to form a solid metal accessory. It has great resolution, capturing each detail beautifully, and you'd swear it was solid casted-metal!
And yes, with a forestock that's grippable from trigger to barrel, it's a perfect match for the BrickArms Bayonet!
Naturally, Pirate fans will probably find this accessory most interesting, but with a fully-grippable forestock, all kinds of modifications are possible to create a distinctive piece of weaponry. Here, I've added the barrel magazine from a BrickArms PPSh and a BrickArms Glaive to create a steampunk-style long rifle:
MAJOR UPDATE: Will has now cut a prototype mold for the BrickArms Musket, and I was happy to unveil the updated version of this great item at Brickfair 2010!:
And yes, that barrel is 100% grippable. This allows for all sorts of neat customization and modding:
