The AF2011-A1 DOUBLE BARREL PISTOL or "Anything Worth Doing Is Worth Overdoing."

You Want Gun Porn? We Got Gun Porn.

Let's face it, if you're the kind of odd person who is deeply disturbed by the Second Amendment and gun rights you're probably thinking, "They're making this just to irritate me." And you'd be right. But that wouldn't be the only reason.

From the Arsenal Arms page describing this behemoth:

"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. [And because at Arsenal anything worth doing is worth overdoing. ] We achieved success in the brief span of 6 months, after intense and round-the-clock 3D designing, stereolithographic modeling and parts machining. The gun can be handled by any shooter able to shoot with a .45 Acp and it is not only very pleasing, but very accurate and great fun. [Such great fun that it will soon be the gun of choice among Mexican and ghetto drug lords.]

"The AF2011-A1 holds amazing and surprising target performance for the shooter: in fact, it will group all the 8 double .45 caliber rounds (16 bullets) held in the duplex, single columns magazines, in a target of the size of an orange at 15 yards and of a water melon at 25. [Comes with a t-shirt that says "Death from Downrange to Fruit!"]

"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 [I don't want to think about how they know this.], while the whole 18 bullets, for a payload exceeding 4000 Grains, can be delivered to the target in about 3 seconds. [Do not, repeat, do not be that target.]

"The AF2011-A1 obviously features a number of very special parts, such as the single slide, the single frame, the single spur double hammer, the single grip safety, the single body double mainspring housing and the single double cavity magazine floor plate [I.E. This is one bad single mother.], the long and double magazine latch, the special barrel bushings and the hold open lever and side lever safety with long shafts: but the most interesting feature of the new pistol which we strived to keep during the development of the project, is the interchangeability of most internal parts, which come as standard 1911 replacement parts. These include the firing pins, the firing pins plates, the sears groups, the triple springs, the inner parts of the mainspring housings, the recoil springs and recoil springs rods, the magazine bodies and inner parts, the sights (including after market adjustable sights) the grips and grips screws and bushings. [Translation: It's like a parts car for you 1911, only more expensive.]

"The AF2011-A1 (“Twenty Eleven” for aficionados [Or badass gangstas.] ) can be ordered either with 2 independent triggers and one sear group (left or right, with user-interchangeability for right or left operations) or with 2 triggers permanently joined and the choice of 1 or 2 sear groups.

"The AF2011-A1 is available in mirror finish Deep Blue or with a 3400 Vickers surface hardness White Ash Nitrite coating. [Gold plating for gangstas will be extra and custom and you just know THAT is going to happen.]

I have got to get a pair of those!

Want. Badly want.

Fits the adage: Life is expensive, bullets are cheap; anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice.

I wonder which action movie star will be first to fire two of these at once (gangsta' style, of course) in a film?

Looks a little like a bald Clint Eastwood.

Iiiiiiiii ... waaaannnt ..... one. I want one now. Right now. NOW. Stamps foot, folds arms, pouts.

Ooooo!!! All sorts of exciting new stoppages await!

Now youze can poke both yer eyes out at the same time!

I don't know, Mike J. I've always found the M1911 to be very reliable. But it does raise some questions on stoppage drills. And in case one side gets jammed, can you still fire the other one? Looks like you can, but it would be good to know that before you have to do it for real. And I do want to get me one.

Dittos on the 1911. It fires a big slug, but it fits comfortably in the hand, even my smaller than average hand. The grip is slimmer than many small to medium caliber polymer pistols, like Glock. It's heavy, but that heft reduces the felt recoil. You are not going to be holding that weight for very long, and the 45 ACP invitation to an attitude adjustment makes sure you don't have to ask twice.

You can get a GI model Rock Island Armory 1911 for $400-500. You can get a Sig Sauer or Kimber 1911 for $1,000-ish. If Ruger could keep up with demand you can get a really sweet SR1911 for $700 or less. You can probably get a custom made match quality Ed Brown for what I imagine you'd spend on Frankenpistol.

You can window shop at Buds Gun Shop and Gallery of Guns. All the cool kids are doing it.

Mmmmmmmm. Daddy like!

That's completely excessive.

I want one!

Racking that double slide must take brute force.

Posted by: Terry at March 13, 2012 10:34 AM

Oh, yes.

I feel like I walked into a Doublemints commercial.

waltj, it looks to me as if there is one fat slide on one fat frame which contains two of everything else (I forgot, one weirdo fat dual magazine). I wouldn't start out to say anything about a 1911, but this is a sort of Siamese 1911, and I can't help thinking that everything depends upon both sets of actions working correctly with each squeeze of the fat trigger. A doubling of the chance of a stoppage, sort of like how that Soviet VSTOL strike aircraft, the Forger, had three times the likelyhood of engine loss, and thus loss of the aircraft, because it depended on three engines to hover, versus Harrier's one.

Swiss armourer Vivian Mueller, eh? Wasn't there a Playboy Playmate back in the day by the name of Vivian Mueller? Is this another case of a smoking hot babe coming up with a smoking hot bit of technology, kinda sorta like how Hedy Lamarr invented skip frequency spread spectrum radio transmission? Or maybe her name was Lilian...

Posted by: SteveS at March 13, 2012 6:54 PM

@Mike J, looks like you're right. But I'd still like to confirm it on the range:-).
