If you love Legos and old-time “weapons” (don’t worry it’s made of Legos) then you will love this custom Lego MOC pistol that I have made. As you can see in the picture above it looks exactly like a flintlock pistol only it is made 100% out of Legos.
And I am 100% giving away the instructions and Lego parts list for this flintlock pistol.
This custom Lego build is approximately 2 ¼ inches wide, 14 inches long, and 5 inches high. So this is very much a custom Lego build and not a tiny little pistol that will work with your Lego minifigures.
It’s also important to note that this Lego MOC (my own creation) is 342 pieces so it isn’t something that will take you a few minutes to put together.
That means this likely won’t be a good custom Lego build for someone who is under the age of 6 or 7. But since many of the pieces of this build are larger younger children should be able to help with the build quite easily.
Of course, this depends on how patient they are and how much experience they have with Lego builds.
It is also important for you to know that this Lego “weapon” is not an actual weapon at all. It can’t even be used for spit wads. It’s just a really cool Lego Flintlock replica project that I wanted to build out.
So no worries about this being dangerous or anything like that.
What’s Included In This Free Lego Flintlock Pistol Download?
So what exactly is included in this custom Lego build download and is it really 100% free?
This Lego pistol download is absolutely free and no strings are attached either. The download for everything is included below in this article and you don’t need to enter your email or anything like that either.
See! It really is 100% free!
PDF Instructions For The Flintlock Pistol Lego Build
The first thing that you will find with this download is a full set of PDF instructions for this Lego flintlock pistol. These are step-by-step instructions to walk you through every step of this custom build.
Of course, you can print these instructions out if you like but what I personally prefer to do is either put them on my laptop screen or even my TV. It makes it far easier to see each detail and doesn’t waste all the paper and ink either.
These instructions are 156 pages in length and include the full list of parts as well as images throughout the build (as pictured above).
Complete List Of Lego Parts Needed For Lego Flintlock Pistol
The next thing that is included below is the full parts list needed for this custom Lego weapons set build. You can find it at the bottom of the PDF file after all of the images and steps for the build.
Having a list of all the parts can be helpful if you already have a bunch of Legos just lying around or if you don’t like to purchase the Legos through normal methods like Brinklink.
A .IO File That You Can Use To Easily Order The Needed Lego Parts
The third thing that I am making available is the .io file. If you are new to custom Lego builds you might not know what that is.
Essentially having that file means you can go to BrickLink, create a want list, and easily purchase all of the Lego pieces that you need for the build all with just clicking a few buttons.
Having a .io file means that you can easily order and get all of the needed Lego pieces to complete the build all at once too.
BrickLink has a couple of really cool features with their “wanted list” which lets you just click a button and they find all the cheapest parts that you need for the build and automatically add them all to your cart.
Then all you have to do is pay for them and they will ship them right out to you. Super easy to do and no scouring through eBay listings or your own parts trying to find the right one a single piece at a time.
How Much Does This Custom Lego Flintlock Pistol Cost To Build?
The last thing I want to mention before giving you the free downloads for this Lego flintlock pistol build is how much it actually costs to buy the Legos.
Now I’m giving you the instructions and parts list for free but to purchase the physical Legos on BrickLink (or other similar sites) of course will cost you something.
Currently the price for all of the Lego pieces needed for this custom Lego “weapon” set is $31.46.
However, pieces are constantly being sold and bought on BrickLink so the price could certainly go up or down by the time that you are reading this.
Personally I don’t feel like getting a customized Lego flintlock pistol for under $32 is bad at all. Especially when you compare it to what Lego charges for similarly sized sets (typically $75-$100 or more)
And of course getting the instructions for this Lego flintlock pistol for free build helps a bit as well.
Free Download of the Parts List & PDF Instructions For the Lego Flintlock Pistol
Ok so now to the good stuff. Below are the downloads for both the PDF instructions as well as the .IO file that you will need for this custom Lego MOC build.
Both of them are 100% free to use and download as well for your own builds. All I ask is that you don’t try and resell them or anything like that (no one would really be that scammy would they?).
The parts list that shows you which parts and how many of each Lego piece is needed will be on the bottom of the PDF that has the instructions but if you order the pieces from BrickLink using the .IO file you really don’t need those.
The Lego flintlock pistol instructions and parts downloads can be found below.
