Default The AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol is a first.....

Thought the pro-gun people would like this.

The AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol is a first on two counts. It's the first ever double barrel semiautomatic pistol manufactured for sale (not available yet, but on deck for Fall 2012). And, after getting a load of the "Twenty Eleven's" sleek aesthetic and technical design, the gun will also represent the first argument the people who really, really want it are going to have with the people who say they can't have it.
Arsenal Firearms created the Double Barrel Pistol as a tribute to the Colt 1911-A1. In both visual splendor, and functionality and upkeep. Anyone able to shoot a .45 ACP will be versed in handling and firing the 2011. Arsenal Firearms maintains it will perform exceptionally in target shooting, bullseying 8 double rounds of single column magazines--16 bullets total--into a target the size of an orange at 15 yards away, and one the size of a watermelon at 25. Two bullets carry 460 grains of power and, when impacting at 1 to 2 inches apart, will knock down a bull. Though a few rounds may be necessary to take down a double-muscled Belgian Blue bull. Or a zombified Charlie Sheen. The entire 18-bullet tag team is expendable in about 3 seconds
Once officially released, the pistol will come in buyers' choice of 2 independent triggers, and one sear group (left or right, with user-interchangeability for right or left operations), or 2 triggers permanently joined, and 1 or 2 sear groups. Formidable finishes include a mirrored deep blue, or a white ash nitrite coating with a 3400 Vickers surface hardness.
Most of the 2011's internal parts are interchangeable with the Colt 1911's. In term of replacement parts, these include:
· Firing pins
· Firing pin plates
· Sears groups
· Triple springs
· Inner parts of the mainspring housings
· Recoil springs and recoil spring rods
· Magazine bodies and inner parts
· Sights (including after market adjustable sights)
· Grips, and grip screws and bushings
Naturally, the Double Barrel version is also pimped out with some special parts, such as:
· A single slide
· A single frame
· A single spur double hammer
· A single grip safety
· A single body double mainspring housing
· A single, double cavity magazine floor plate
· A long and double magazine latch
· Special barrel bushings
· A hold-open lever and side lever safety with long shafts

Nice but I'd rather have a single barrel weapon with a large cap magazine. Less to go wrong.

IMO, the gun should have only one trigger!
Anybody know how wide it is?

Do you switch hands when you want to pull the trigger on the other side of the weapon ?

What happens during a misfire? Not that that would ever happen.

Except you will need hands like an NBA center to get a decent grip on that thing - look how wide the frame is.

That's what I was thinking... It appears to have a single slide, so if you pull one trigger, one bullet is fired, but you get an ejection from both sides? Likewise, if you're clearing jams, there will be a bunch of unfired rounds hitting the ground...

I think the thing is cool, just not practical at all. More of a novelty.

One trigger (either trigger) fires both sides. But, during a misfire, only one side fires and the gun would likely torque. Also, the slide might not have enough energy to eject the round(s) either.

I would have that Dirty Harry nagging question every time I was about to pull the trigger on the last round(s). Did I load each side evenly or not? Well.... did I, punk?

It's a gimmick. Can you image the wight of that thing fully loaded? And the recoil on the last pair of rounds fired?

Recoil freeze frame.

If one trigger pull fires 2 rounds, how do they get around the ATF classifying that as a machine gun? For that matter, why bother with 2 triggers at all?

Maybe they don't? Maybe it won't be available in the U.S..

I don't sell them... I just read what they print. 'Two bullets with one trigger pull.' They say there is a single or double trigger option but, both options have the double hammer (combined hammer).

Would love to see that target. I think this is about the dumbest thing I have seen in the gun world in a long time. I could be wrong but I think its pointless
