This, my friends, is what can possibly be the ultimate handgun for hardcore enthusiasts. I almost wet my pants when I discovered this and especially when it is a real product and not just a concept anymore. No, this is no photoshop mockup and not one of those products that get tied up in design and manufacturing issues where it eventually ends up just another teaser for many. This is real and in fact, I have even researched it enough where I have found not only some of those infamous blurry phone cam pics of the actual product, but managed to briefly chat with someone who was lucky enough to get some hands-on time with it. In fact, even before I was able to post this, it even caught the attention of the mainstream media, including sources and major networks known for their ignorance and anti-gun rhetoric.
The AF2011-A1 from Arsenal Firearms is the first ever double barrel and double trigger 1911-style handgun to apparently hit the market. To accommodate this bold design, the handgun features a specially designed magazine capable of feeding the two rounds. Another nice thing to note is that this handgun has standard components and/or parts, allowing you to replace or modify them with your common and readily available Colt 1911 parts.
Now, before some of you get too excited, there are a couple of important things to note here. First off, having the ability to fire two rounds simultaneously means that it can indeed be classified as a Class 3 weapon or “machine gun”. There has been a lot of debate from what I’ve gathered but now that it appears to be officially released, this is indeed the case. With that said, not many will obviously be able to purchase it…at least one of the models. I say this because Arsenal Firearms will work around this obstacle by providing two versions of the “Second Century” pistol, one of which will sport two independent triggers and another which has two triggers that will be permanently joined in design to allow one smooth pull in order to fire off those two powerful .45 caliber rounds. The second thing to note is obviously just how expensive this handgun will be. Don’t expect to pay $1,000 or less for this pistol. Claiming ten years in the making in order to perfect and make such a product actually a reality, expect to pay a hefty price for one. You might have to sell all or most of your gun collection just to get one!
More info can be found on their website. I tried really hard, including some attempts to contact them directly. However, I was unable to get a true release date nor an idea on its price tag. In the meantime, drool over some more pics on their website and if you do plan on getting a hold of one, I hope you have some large hands to comfortably wrap them around this much firepower.
