Guns We Want: The AF2011 A1 Double Barrel Pistol [VIDEO]

From the action movies to real life: The AF2011-A1 double barrel pistol is the wildest take on a Colt 1911 to date.

The AF2011 from Arsenal Arms looks like a prop gun from an action movie, but it is fully-functioning gun. In fact, it’s the first-ever commercially viable double-barrel semi-automatic pistol. Modeled after the timeless Colt M1911 A, the A2011 uses many of the same design features. But it’s wicked powerful, as it’s essentially two 1911’s smushed into one.

The A2011 takes two eight-round magazines of either .45 ACP or .38 Super Auto. It can fire off eight double rounds in roughly 3 seconds. Each double round can hit a 1-2 inch target in tandem at 15 yards away. All 16 rounds fired together deliver a whopping total of 4,000 grains of powder. That’s enough force to drop a charging bear.

Buyers have two trigger options: a double hammer with single spur, or a single hammer with double spur. Most of the internal parts, such as the firing pins, sears groups, sights, and grips, are interchangeable with a Colt M1911. Non-interchangeable parts include the single slide, single grip safety, special barrel bushings among others. Click here to learn more about the gun’s technical aspects.


Here’s a video demonstration of the AF2011 featuring one of the gun’s designers, who looks like he’s all business.
