** But played straight in "The Day the World Went Away", when a Samaritan agent assembles a DRD Tactical CDR-15 rifle from his backpack, a weapon specifically designed to be carried that way and quickly put together when required.

* ''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.

Added DiffLines:

** While it's purely cosmetic, many weapons also fold or break down when being stowed, just so they'll fit on the hunter's back. Lances and some insect glaives telescope into themselves, gunlances and heavy bowguns are stored with the breech open (i.e. folded in half), switch axes reconfigure to be as small as possible, and bows fold in half.

** Add to the fact that only lower reciever (the part with the trigger assembly) counts as the gun), means that it also can be changed out easily for different barrel lengths and ammunition. In fact a 10" barrel (known legally as a short barreled rifle) AR-15 can easily be fit in a messenger bag with a couple of 30rd mags of ammo.

** 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]].
