    Be curious to see the INSIDE and how the rifling matches up. Think I might pass on shooting though. Is this safe? Guessin' its legal, but...

    Holy smokes Batman!!
    That doesn't even look like a great weld.
    It could definitely look better with a different weld and a nice grind and polish and reblue.

    Looks to me like they may have threaded the first barrel and screwed the 2nd one on and then spot welded it to hold in place, but hard to say for sure without a better pic.

    They'd be lucky to get $200.
    I'd buy it for $125.
    Be a nice candidate to try rust bluing.
     
  5. That's what I was thinking, probably a lot easier with basic shop tools to thread, then to try and perfectly weld them.
     
  6. atleast they did it to a taurus.

    kind of like seeing a bubba'd hi-point, its better than trashing grampys 1911.

    it is interesting idea. If they did it to a .357 id pay $200 and just take the one barrel out.

    That could be welded up rather easily, with a properly sized rod in the barrel,
    and placed in a fixture, tack-welded carefully, checked for straightness and
    finally finished. $400 is quite high for that crap-shoot, however. Th question
    remains, was it properly done or just thrown together? Not worth the gamble.

    Bore it out, re-line it with an insert, good to go!

    Tell you what, it gives that Glock a run for its money in the aesthetic department.

    Ha burn on the mole
     
  13. Looks like one barrel has a notch on it and the other have a protrusion on it -perhaps and attempt to keep them properly aligned?

    I'm surprised they didn't list it in the auction as a "double barrel .38 special" :rofl:

    Nope, it's definitely spot welded.

    You 2 know what you both can go do, to each other :eek:
     
  19. I would bid a buck just for curiosity. The only way I could see it working would be to bore both barrels and attach them to the same rifled liner. Which would just make the two factory barrels shrouds.

    Honestly I cannot see this kind of effort for a old Taurus.
