    It's simply not an issue when you double it up. Cool, no?

    Definitely an awesome action movie tool which it will surely appear in, but I wonder what the benefit is compared to a single barrel larger caliber after total weight is calculated..? Love the two lasers, as if each barrel has to be aimed and fired independently... The tactifools with sell body parts for this puppy..

    I think I saw that episode! They really did do this.

    Seems like they had to mod a cooling system for it because the combined heat of both barrels risked cooking off rounds.

    Then again I could be combining two different episodes but I'm pretty sure I remember it right.

    Sound familiar?

    So no alternate firing, thus double recoil pulses....

    Based upon how finicky double rifles are to regulate, and how particular they become about what load they shoot, I don't think the gun is anything more than a joke.


    It takes master craftsman to build a DR, and get it to regulate properly. Just about every single company that has tried to build a "assembly line" double rifle has failed.

    thank the Gods! it's about time the "tactical" market jumped the shark.

    now maybe prices will start dropping.

    Seems to me, they could make the trigger electric. So you could program one barrel to fire at a time. Of course LEO could get the full blown version.

    Would still give you the U.S. civy market.

    It has a single gas operated piston system so one shot cycles BOTH barrels (one would fire both would eject, or if it didn't generate enough gas both would fail to extract).
    Cool but unneeded concept, twin lasers is just over the top stupid.

    If you are going to do that then why not just double the mag cap? Otherwise, what's the point?
