A Lego Revolver That Really Shoots!

To quote Don Henley, “I’ve been a lot of places and I’ve seen a lot of things, but sonny I’ve seen one thing beats ’em all.” And so far, it’s this handy-dandy revolver made of Legos.
This Lego “iron” doesn’t operate exactly like a typical revolver. The cylinder rotates with the trigger pull as a double action would do, but the hammer must first be cocked, ala single action. And there’s no trigger return spring, so it has to be moved forward every each shot. But as Dad use to say, those are minor details.
Like the Anaconda, it’s a six-shooter with a vent rib atop the barrel. Being made of Legos, it is of course shaped somewhat differently than a Colt. But the cylinder turns in the correct direction, and it’s got open sights that work.
Pretty cool. We sure didn’t have Legos like this when I was a kid.
