Utah Gun Company Under Fire for Kit to Make Glock Handgun Look Like a Lego Toy

KUTV) — A Utah company that specializes in customizations to firearms is no longer selling what it called a childhood dream coming to life: a handgun covered in blue and red LEGO blocks that makes a lethal weapon look like a toy.

Culper Precision, that has received nation-wide reaction to its short-lived modification, received a cease-and-desist notification from LEGO, according to a story from the Washington Post. Company president Brandon Scott told the newspaper the toy maker might have a case against his company should it continue to offer the Block19 modification. The modification started at $549.

A Glock 19 is a 9 mm handgun advertised as a conventional service pistol ideal as a backup weapon or for concealed carry. It retails for around $600.

In Culper’s view, the gun is a “safe queen” — a term for unique or collectible guns that owners rarely fire and instead keep in a safe.

“It seems that no matter what we create in the firearms industry anti gunners seem to leverage every *true* innovation (block19 is NOT an innovation it is a fun safe queen) shortly after its release to talk about why guns are bad,” Culper sniveled. 

“Between March and December of 2020, there was a 31 percent increase in unintentional shooting deaths by children of themselves or others, compared to the same time period in 2019,” Moms Demand Action said.
