Keefe Report: Exclusive—Arsenal Firearms Double-Barreled M1911

Arsenal Firearms shook up the shooting world with the introduction of the AF2011 "Second Century" pistol, the world's first double-barreled M1911 pistol. The gun, made in Italy, is really two M1911s built on a common frame, a shared slide assembly and with a single wide hammer. And it fires two synchronized rounds with every pull of the trigger—one from the right barrel and one from the left. Read more about this first-of-its-kind pistol and watch the exclusive video of the gun in action on the range.

That is just silly. There is no need for something like that. It is just a gimmick.

.....where can I get one?

And it will never make it to the US. By definition it is a machine gun. It fires more than one round per pull of the trigger.

I wouldn't want one, but you make an interesting point.

This point was brought up on the other forum and nobody could figure out how it wouldn't be a "machine gun". Now that AmRif. printed the story it can be. Since it has 2 triggers it's excluded from said rule. And since it has 2 hammers fused together then both triggers must be pulled simultaneously for the hammer to strike.
Pull the right one only? Won't fire, because the left trigger is holding the left side hammer (welded to the right) in place.

Still seems like a "why?" product to me. Maybe if they make a commander model...

I doubt the ATF will see that as two seperate triggers. If you can't pull them seperately to make the gun work then it's more of a two piece trigger.

From the article (link posted above):

Quote:But is a gun that fires two rounds every time the trigger is pulled a machine gun? The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' Firearms Technology Branch spent quite a lot of time testing and shooting the gun (I can’t blame them as it really is fun to shoot), eventually ruling that even though it fires twice with a single trigger pull, the completely separate barrels do not shoot “automatically.” The FTB approved the AF2011 for importation on Nov. 14, 2012. As far as I know, we were the first outsiders to shoot the gun, and you can find our exclusive video here.

It seems they already have.

Although not for the reason I thought.

This is the same administration that approved, then denied import of the Garands and Carbines from South Korea. Just because they said one thing, doesn't mean they won't change their mind later. Do you not remember the GSG5SD fake suppressor debacle? They were approved then recalled because the ATF deemed the fake suppressor a real suppressor.
