** The Nerf Modulus line carries the basis of customising your own blaster and has various interchangeable attachments, from red dot sight and tactical flashlight, to [[MoreDakka Grip Blaster and Stock Blaster]], as long as the blaster has tactical rail slots, you can put whatever you want onto your own blasters.

* Karl from ''Film/DieHard'' has this going with his Steyer AUG. He kept it in a duffel then constructed it in the elevator. Which is fair enough, given that the Steyr AUG is modular, where one receiver can be converted from a submachinegun to an assault rifle to a light support weapon by just switching the barrel assembly (and, for the SMG version, the bolt and magazine shroud).

* TruthInTelevision. The AR-18 rifle was popular with the IRA because it could be broken down for concealment purposes without disturbing the zero. Most Hollywood IKEA weapons however tend not to have their sights attached to the weapon, ruling them [[CoolButInefficient impractical for sniping use in real life]].

* Tediore guns in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' are a futuristic version of this trope; the player doesn't take them out so much as 3d print them on the spot. This combines with ThrowAwayGuns, as after each clip is empty, you throw it away and it explodes like a grenade! For a bonus, the more ammo left in the clip the more damage from the explosion.

* The Bowguns of ''VideoGame/MonsterHunterTri'' weren't crafted as full weapons, unlike in the other games of the series. Instead, Bowguns were comprised of barrels, stocks, and frames, which players crafted individually. Then the gunner would make up the Bowgun by choosing which stock, frame, and barrel to take, each part providing its own affinities and clip sizes for different ammo types.

* In ''Film/{{Highlander}}'', the sword that the Kurgan uses in modern times is assembled from a kit through a Lock and Load / Kata montage. An especially {{egregious}} example since swords are particularly dependent on internal solidity. Well, "it's a kind of magic" clearly doesn't only apply to being immortal.
** Though it doesn't stand out much as it would in other films, as the film (and the franchise) basically runs on RuleOfCool, rather than logic.

* In the ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' novel ''Demontage'', an assassin has a set of wine glasses that can be separated out and reconstructed into two daggers, a set of lockpicks and a gun. In keeping with the books TuxedoAndMartini pastiche, he's the man with the crystal pistol.

* ''Series/PersonOfInterest''. Used for a BaitAndSwitch in "Root Cause". A man appears to be assembling a rifle on the catwalk above where a politician is making a speech. Reese tackles him, only for the real sniper to fire, killing the politician. He was actually assembling a confetti-firing device.
