Culper Precision, an American gun manufacturing company, has made a Glock weapon that loos like a children's toy made of Lego.
The weapon, named the Block19, was developed to "highlight the pure enjoyment of the shooting sports", reports the BBC. The weapon is covered in red, blue and yellow blocks, which makes it almost impossible to see the original weapon underneath.
In a cease-and-desist letter, Danish toymaker Lego has demanded that Culper Precision stop producing the weapon.
Brandon Scott, the president of the Utah-based Culper Precision, told the Washington Post a lawyer told him Lego might have a case if he kept offering the Block19.
Scott decided to comply, and the Block19 is no longer for sale. The page on the company’s website has been taken down, but it seems as if the company isn’t apologetic towards its product.
NPR reports that the company says it built the Block19 "to be a welcome and a gesture of friendship and inclusion", especially for gun owners who eschew "tactical pants" and "bravado".
Culper Precision also emphasised that it's the responsibility of every gun owner to keep firearms secured and out of the reach of children, whether the weapon looks like a toy or not.
