  2. Not interested, plus it has two triggers and if only one hammer gets set off then the gun may not cycle. Or throw a unfired round out the port. I am surprised BATF is not all over this gun. Even though it has two triggers still more than one round can be sent downrange with a single trigger pull.

    Why the extra weight when there are plenty of fine double stacks out there...

    Is it just me or is that really a dumb idea?

    Screwing with the 1911 design is like doing a remix of Stairway To Heaven..... some things are better left alone. ;)

    In the second video, he explains the trigger and hammer. 2 1911 triggers with the transfer bars welded together so that it acts like a single mechanism and the hammer are joined on a single spur making it a single hammer. There is zero possibility of only one barrel going off unless there was an ammo malfunction.

    I think it's utterly idiotic, a solution in search of a problem.

    As just an exercise in, "hey Ma, look what I can do!" I guess it's OK. Sort of like the guys who put blueray lasers in Star Trek phase props and pop balloons with them. But nothing at all past that.

    Two holes with 1 pull of the trigger? What's so idiotic about that? 16 holes with only 8 trigger pulls in the exact same amount of time it takes to make 8 holes..... (3 seconds). I think that's bad assed! :p

    It's a completely boneheaded way to get those two holes which dramatically increases the complexity of the mechanism and introduces at least 3 noted additional points of failure and opportunities for malfunction. The added benefit of "two-holes-for-one-pull" is not justified by the drawbacks and potential pitfalls of the design.

    It's a toy not a tool.

    As a toy, it's kinda neat, but I'd never trust life-and-limb to it.

    In all actuality, they didn't 'change' the 1911 design, they just developed a way to 'meld' two of them into 1 handgun.

    Where did you get the 4 lbs? Not doubting, just curious.

    What is "Grs" ? Not grains or grams, obviously.:p
