Double-Barrel Pistol Reinvents The Meaning Of Double Tapping

Double-barrel pistol reinvents the meaning of double tapping

double-barrel-gun-0-thumb-550xauto-85933

Don't cry to us when the Mayan Apocalypse comes with a horde of brain-dead zombies because we'll just shake our heads at you for not stocking up on Arsenal Firearms' double barrel handgun that fires two bullets with every trigger pull.

More commonly referred to as the AF2011-AF Double Barrel Pistol or "Twenty Eleven" or "Second Century," the gun is special because it's the first semi-automatic pistol that fires two bullets at once. Its body is intrinsically that of a Colt 1911-A1 with twin .45 caliber barrels that can carry eight bullets in each.

In layman's terms, that means, it'll effectively kill zombies dead without requiring constant reloading. Two bullets to the head on one shot should keep a zombie down for good.

The stopping power of the AF2011-A1 is tremendous: 2 bullets for a total of 460 Grains weight impacting at 1 to 2 inches apart (depending on the distance of the target) will knock down a bull, while the whole 18 bullets, for a payload exceeding 4000 Grains, can be delivered to the target in about 3 seconds.

Made in Italy, Arsenal Firearms' new weapon of zombie destruction is said to be "very accurate and great fun" and even features interchangeable parts with legacy Colt 1911 parts.

As if all of that wasn't enough, the Second Century gun can also be ordered with either two independent triggers or two permanently joined ones — both tempting options.

Pricing isn't listed on Arsenal Firearms' site, but we're sure if you really wanted the guns, finding a way to procure them won't be hard.

Because we can, we're dubbing this gun the "zombie-killer's best friend."

If it fires more than one bullet per pull of the trigger, it’s a NFA weapon.

The version with a single trigger can never be owned in the U.S. by civilians because it is classified as a full auto weapon by the ATF.

The double trigger version is legal, but if you don’t pull both triggers exactly at the same time, only one side will fire, and there may not be enough energy to cycle the double slide.

Also, with a double slide, you double your chances of having a malfunction, and double the problems clearing them.

You said I was boring. My gun has two barrels. That isn’t boring… and it was very difficult to make.

I remember a toy pistol my cousin gave me back in 1955. It was a double barrel cap pistol one barrel above the other. I never forgot how useful such a pistol could be.

I also remember a wooden “Thompson machine gun” a neighbor made for me back in 1950.

Not long after my dad bought me a double barrel crossbow toy pistol that could fire two arrows. That was 57 years ago.

Those were the happy times of my life. In 1956, our lives went to hell in a hand basket.

I can see Dirty Harry shooting one of these - “most powerful handgun in the world”. I know what you’re thinkin’...did he fire 18 shots or was it only 17? Do ya feel lucky, punk?

How does it escape NFA classification? Two triggers like a side-by-side?

Do some research.

One certainly can own a full auto weapon in the U.S..

Here is my daughter posing (the reason for no safety gear) with a full-auto Uzi she just finished firing.

I wonder what the aerodynamic effects the two projectiles leaving closely space muzzles would be upon one another, if any?

Counter-twists for the rifling might be in order, but which way? Turn outboard, or in?

Do some research.

Do some research of your own. If an automatic weapon was not registered with the ATF as an automatic weapon as of May 19, 1986, it is not eligible for civilian ownership or transfer, thanks to the Hughes Amendment to the Firearm Owner's Protection Act.

Because of the FOPA, a civilian can never own a newly manufactured firearm that fires more than one shot with a single pull of the trigger, which is the legal definition of a machine gun according to 26 U.S.C. 5845(b).

Any full-auto weapons for sale in the United States to civilians, including that fine Uzi your daughter fired, were manufactured and registered prior to May 19, 1986.

Just because something can be done does not mean it should be. And here we have a great example of that.

I’m sure you are quite correct. I have met over the years several individuals who DO own such firearms, including Uzi’s, 50 cal Browning machine Guns, etc. I was told that it was a matter of the right paperwork and the payment of a TAX stamp to do so.

But I’m sure that they were just lying to me.

Oh yes, please check out the video of the Knob Creek FULL-AUTO machine gun shoot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qd0ppORwBog

I’m sure the ATF would be fascinated at the thought of so many ILLEGAL machine guns in one spot.

Reminds me of the Remington “2200” circa 1982. Two Remington 1100s (.12 gauge shotguns) fastened together side by side with a common trigger. Rather nasty precursor to the “alley-sweeper.”

"happy times"

Is this nostagia hour? I remember 1956 because it was the first time I attempted to swing at a pitched (actually softly thrown by an adult) ball with negative results. But it sure was fun. And it was in the street in front of my house. I swung at tens of thousands of pitched balls after that, but that first one is the one I remember best. Unless it was the homerun I hit in rec ball off a friend who loudly declared he was going to strike me out.

It is legal for civilians to own machine guns that were placed in the national registry prior to 1986, and has the appropriate tax stamp. However, no new firearms can be placed into the registry.

This is why a full-auto AR rifle, which doesn't cost any more to manufacture than a $1,500 semi-auto AR, goes for $10,000 or more. There is a fixed limited supply of them.

Why did it have two pilots? Was it a trainer?

Nope...not a trainer. In fact it was one of the first combat aircraft used in the Korean War. It was originally designed as a super long range fighter escort, first for B-29s in the Pacific, although it didn't see use in WWII.

In the years immediately following WWII, when it became apparent that the intercontinental bombing of the USSR was a very possible mission, it was deemed an appropriate escort for B-29s and later the B-36, and also pushed out the P-61 as a night fighter.

According to Wikipedia:

"On 27 February 1947, a P-82B 44-65168 named Betty Jo and flown by Colonel Robert E. Thacker made history when it flew nonstop from Hawaii to New York without refueling, a distance of 5,051 mi (8,129 km) in 14 hr 32 min (347.5 mph/559.2 km/h). This flight tested the P-82's range. The aircraft carried a full internal fuel tank of 576 gal (2,180 l), augmented by four 310 gal (1,173 l) tanks for a total of 1,816 gal (6,874 l). Also, Colonel Thacker forgot to drop three of his external tanks when their fuel was expended, landing with them in New York.[2]

To this day, it remains the longest nonstop flight ever made by a propeller-driven fighter, and the fastest such a distance has ever been covered in a piston-engined aircraft (the record for the longest unrefueled flight by a propeller-driven aircraft of any type is held by the Rutan Voyager). "

Or the Chiappa Rhino? One fugly weapon, but the concept of placing the barrel at the bottom of the cylinder and sending the recoil straight into the wrist (i.e. no muzzle flip) is interesting.
