epic stuff

though I was kind of wondering if you could tell me when the sten smg or the scifi rifle will be released?

oh and I am very excited about some of the new prototypes, but I'd like to see some more detailed pictures. some of them only have shots of a pile in different colors that makes it a bit hard to see the details IMHO.

In regards to when future releases of BrickArms accessories will be, this is all that can be said!

If you take a look at my Flickr stream, I think you'll find the kind of images you're looking for!: http://www.flickr.com/photos/enigmabadger/

I'll also be taking a few additional shots over the next few times, time permitting.

These are all must-haves!

My father in law tells stories about 'nam a lot.... he's mentioned the "grease gun" before.  He said you would hold it sideways because its rate of fire + recoil.

Does the ammo box detach from the M1919 cal ?

My father did the same thing at times with his Thompson. They would let the "muzzle climb" pull the gun so it swept from side to side.

Yes, they said it did in the Proto-type thread I believe.

Yes, the Ammo Box is removable and can be attached to any BrickArms accessory with an ammo slot (Combat LMG, MG42, etc)

Ah yeah, the ARC looks like a massive improvement over the original M4 Carbine piece. It's also real accurate to an actual M4A4 with optics. I'll have to (some day) get a few ARCs. Will the M4 Carbine pieces get a price drop any time, too? ^_^

Also, the prototype for the M16A1 is great. Though the first picture on the Flikr page is a bit wrong; you should never carry a rifle by the carrying handle! :)

@swordsalmon: out of curiosity: why should one never carry an M16 by the carrying handle?

damn those are sexy!  I'm glad to live in a place where I can buy them in person and won't have to pay for shipping.
