“The AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol comes actually as the very first industrial double barrel semiautomatic pistol of all times. The original idea came about ten years back to Swiss armourer Vivian Mueller, who at the time experienced cutting and welding together multiple parts of the famous Sig P210: the result was a long slide, double barrel 9mm, highly decorated collector piece, which indeed shot very well. Our idea took the challenge further: to commemorate the legendary Colt 1911-A1 in the Centenary by making a true industrial market-ready double barrel .45 caliber pistol.”

  1. That’s the stupidest pistol I’ve ever seen, and only a fool would carry one

  2. seems pretty cool

  3. as an amature gunsmith i can tell you this is a seriously bad idea, not only will the rounds interfere with each other as they exit, what happens if you get a missfire in once chamber, or the powder loads are not exactly the same, this is a stupid gimmic for the uneducated gun nut.

    give me a well set up single chamber .45 (kimber custom or similar) and it will outshoot this idiotic piece of rubbish all day every day.

    and remeber people, it is not about round size, it is about shot placement

    • Simon,
      If you watch the video you will see that the gun was designed to eject the spent cartridges on opposite sides of the weapon so they would not interfere with one another. I would also imagine that the gas chamber used to cause the slide to retract back, eject the cartridges, and reload the weapon are connected together to cause the operation to go off without incident, if the powder loads were not exactly the same in each cartridge. The slide itself is designed as ‘one piece’ and it would either work right, or not at all, no matter if the powder loads were identical or not.
      I’m not even an amatuer gunsmith but I’m sure that any real gunsmith would have taken these things into account when designing the weapon in the first place.
      I’m sure there would be these sort of issues if you just decided to take two identical semi-auto pistols and weld them side by side to make a double barrel.

      I’d agree with C and lou! though, it seems pretty cool but you are a fool if you bought one to carry around anywhere.
      It’s more of a ‘novelty gun’ to take with you to the range and show your buddies your bad ass new toy. It’s way to big and bulky to be used as a carry around weapon, concealed or open carry.

      I didn’t see the gun perform in ‘rapid fire’ mode, so it is unclear how it would operate in any real life situation, other than standing at the range aiming at an object that isn’t firing back at you. It looks like it has a hell of a kick though and would have a very large diameter shot placement if fired repeatedly. Like I said, it’s a novelty gun to show off to your range buddies, not much use for anything else.
