How convenient! Someone has finally invented a weapon that combines the killing power of a double-barreled shotgun with the portability of a handgun.

Instead of chilling, I say cool. I just used the actual title....

Interesting that MSN is promoting this...I might have guessed that they would be against exercising second amendment rights with the tools of your choosing.

I fail to see how a double barrel 45 is like a double barrel shotgun. Besides, I don’t see an advantage to firing two 45s at the same time.

Any complaint about a 45 might be related to using it in an apartment building. Able to go through walls, it could injure a neighbor by accident.

What I’d like to see is a semi-automatic twenty gage shotgun. It would have the stopping power needed, but wouldn’t be as likely to cause problems for the neighbors.

Clearly a collector’s piece with no practical application. I wonder how many outtakes it took to get through 2 magazines without jamming.

There’s all kinds of torque forces at work on this .45/.45 or .90. Not to mention keeping everything perfectly in sync.

I would have reported that “someone has invented a weapon that doubles the superb defensive stopping power of the classic 1911 .45 semi-automatic Colt pistol in a manageable handgun design!” But then again, I’m not a gun-hating liberal weenie from New York.

I wonder what the ATF thinks this is?

Don't they consider anything that fires more than one round with a single pull of a trigger to be a Class III firearm, and subject to NFA '34?

Not interested. I'll take an LAR Grizzly in .45 WinMag. It has a recoil much like the .454 Casull, but gives you more rounds than a 6 shot revolver. That stippled backstrap will make an impression on you.

I think you are right and it will be classified as a new machine gun and it will not be imported into the USA.

KAOS developed a Stereophonic Twin Barreled 38 Revolver to use against CONTROL agents. Fortunately for CONTROL, when the trigger was pulled, the radio turned on.

“the killing power of a double-barreled shotgun with the portability of a handgun”
the writer had watched too many cartoons. Are there trigger or barrel selectors? if it were as effective as lets say a Purdy or Holland and Holland then I could see the “killing power” for upland game.

sarcasm...

If you find a LeMat, a REAL ONE, not a replica or a forgery, you have a really great treasure in you hands. Only about 4000 or so were ever made, in France, and they were primarily used by Confederate officers as side arms. IIRC, a real authentic one goes for as much as $50k, so beware, there are forgeries that are really good. Look for machine made screws that are definitely NOT made in the 1850 - 1870 time frame..........

Google Saiga shotguns.

Basically shotguns using an AK design.

I have one in 12 for me and one in 410 for the wife. Well, I did at least until that unfortunate boating accident.

Mine came with 5 round mags but higher cap are out there. Not that it matter to me, as all my hicap mags were also lost.

Apparently we Freepers are a sorry lot of boatmen.

It isn't the efficacy, safety or logical reason for it. It only suffice to be the catalyst to piss off a liberal - mightily. It is the same reason why I have a KaBar mini-bayonet for my Glock 21!...it doesn't have to make sense - big boy (and girl) toys that piss of liberals. That's the operative here.

I have double barrel hand gun, 40 caliber I believe

It fits in a jacket pocket easily. Apparently there were lots of them in days gone by. No ammo is available now for it

Thank you. A the same time, I admit I should have been a more specific.

If you want to have a weapon that can be used in close quarters, such as the interior of your home, you don’t want to use the long shotgun. You want a shorter assault version more conducive to mobility.

That’s more what I’m looking for.

Not really. The LeMat had 9 shots with a backup of a 20 guage barrel. It couldn’t fire more than one shot at a time. It was a black powder precussion pistol that had to be loaded slowly. To fire the shotgun barrel under the main barrel you had to switch the firing pin device on the hammer to hit the nipple for the shotgun barrel.

And with the value of a real LeMat you could put your kids through college and still have plenty left over.

This 1911 double barrel is a novelty but I don’t see it as a good gun for self protection. I’ll keep my single barrel 1911s over this oddity.

The kick on that thing must be massive. Even in the video under controlled circumstances, this guy was dancing a bit.

I am fascinated by the gun in it’s workmanship, but I’m by no means convinced of it’s practical worth.

put rails on it and finish it in black so it can be an assault weapon whose only useful purpose is killing people. Also, I think the music on the video is too scary /LOL
