* 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.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRrFWQXl-RE The Hotchkiss Universal SMG]] folds in about 18 places to become really compact, and with some practice you can unfold it and be ready to shoot in 5 seconds.

Unfortunately, it was also [[AwesomeButImpractical an ergonomic disaster and extremely difficult to maintain]], and Hotchkiss only manufactured it from 1949 - 1952.

* Completely subverted by military sniper rifles. For instance British army sniper rifles have the individual pieces seleceted from the "parent weapon" production line, and carefully built in the factory to ensure maximum accuracy.
