Then the lever is pushed down to allow removal of the top piece.

Special Sculpture Tools
This customized hex tool is hidden inside the sculpture.

Intimidator Key
The puzzle key is unusable unless the top cover is removed. The separation
line is quite subtle so it's not obvious that it breaks down into two pieces.

Ammunition can be stored within the sculpture; shown here is a 45 Caliber Bullet, a Black Powder Pellet and a 209 Shotgun Primer.

The top slides off and the pellets can be removed.

Primer Assembly Closed
The shotgun primers are safely stored in these bolted together puzzle parts.
Primer Assembly Opened
The top piece slides off after the bolt is removed allowing access to the 3 primers.

These two interesting shaped parts create a subassembly with a hole that fits around another piece of the sculpture.


This subassembly requires one piece to be turned inside the next.
The subassembly shown ready to install.

Parts Enclosures
The handle grips and sight mount are embedded in special enclosure pieces in the sculpture.

Firing Pin Assembly
There is a special part made to retain the steel firing pin inside the firing pin assembly so it doesn't fall out.
Firing Pin Assembly and Primer Removal Tool
The part is removed before installing the hammer spring assembly and is also used as a tool to remove spent primers from the breach plug.

Barrel Chamber Reinforcement Bushing Assembly
