The INTIMIDATOR PUZZLE PISTOL is is a single shot 45 caliber muzzle loading pistol; a unique offering for personal self defense.
As a young man, I was impressed by the unusual gun used by Scaramanga in the 1974 Bond thriller "The Man with the Golden Gun". Recently, I thought I'd like to design my own.
The INTIMIDATOR Puzzle Pistol was originally planned to be a conventional 25 Caliber pistol but as my ideas morphed, it became a muzzle loading and more intimidating 45 caliber.
The sculpture includes everything required for assembly of the puzzle pistol. Integrated into the sculpture are a customized set of tools, all necessary hardware, 45 caliber bullets, a standard sight, a laser sight, a cannister containing black powder pellets, a secure storage area for 209 shotgun primers, a spent primer removal tool and a ramrod for loading the bullets.

Very cool, a definite conversation piece. The craftsmanship of this piece and his other puzzles is nice.
Not suited for self-defense in any way, shape, or form though.
If guns are your DIY interest, you'd be better served by a visit to your local hardware store's plumbing aisle.

And contrary to popular belief, making a gun in your basement from scratch is perfectly legal, as long as you don't go trying to sell it. Use common sense. OP, neat little design there, while cool, is strictly a novelty with no real practical use. But still cool.

The 1911is a pain the ass enough as it is to reassemble after cleaning
