1) gluing LEGO bricks together is close to sacrilege in some parts of the 'net.
2) If you go that route, you might as well use Kreo or Mega blocks, since bonding them is often the only way those brands stick together long term.
3) You are right that ABS cement or a solvent will give you a stronger joint. For example, IIRC liquid acetate can bond ABS. A quick search on google landed me here: http://www.henkelna.com/us/content_data ... 911911.pdf
which would have a more definitive answer. Can't say much for gaps. Part of the modeller's challenge is try not to have any, right?

Background - I'm trying to build gun out of LEGO & other bricks. Not a toy gun, not a rubber band gun - a real gun. So the glue I use is kinda important. No, I'm not going to use LEGO for the barrel, and yes, ABS plastic has been used for the parts I'm building. And - yes, it is legal to build your own firearm in the United States.

Thanks much for the link, Space Viking.
