In honor of the century Colt M1911, Arsenal Firearms created the first self-loading pistol with two barrels

New Russian-Italian weapon able to produce 16 bullets in 3-5 seconds. This result is very difficult to achieve when using any conventional gun, not counting, of course, automatic models that are capable of fire in bursts, the portal reports MEMBRANA.

Arsenal Firearms private armory company created a new AF2011-A1 pistol "Second Century" (informally referred to as "Twenty Eleven"). This new caliber .45 ACP (11,43 x 23 mm).

The “Second Century” pistol was released in memory of the famous Colt M1911 pistol model (last year 100 turned years from the day it was made), which is still in use. The John Browning model continues its life, the second century has gone already, it is from here that the name of the new weapon appeared.

The Second Century pistol has some internal parts that are used in the original M1911. Among them, she whispered and their hulls, strikers, sights, some parts of the store and arms, several types of springs. All these details can now be found on the world market for weapon parts.

However, the original elements are also used in this weapon, since this “Second Century” model is the first semi-automatic pistol with a double barrel mounted on a single frame. The gun is designed according to industrial specifications and is designed for serial production.

This exotic novelty can already be ordered, with options for finishing and subtleties in the sequence of triggers and double triggers.

The Second Century pistol can fire 2 bullets simultaneously in one shot, the total weight of which is 30 g. They hit the target that is at a distance 2-5 cm from each other (it all depends on the distance of the shot). So, for comparison, the weight of a standard bullet from a cartridge 9 × 18 mm PM (for a Makarov pistol) is 6,1. According to gunsmiths, a double blow from an AF2011-A1 pistol can easily dump a bull.

The “Second Century” pistol is charged with a magazine of sixteen rounds. In essence, these are 2 parallel magazines of eight rounds each, held together with a common base, which are inserted into the handle as a whole.

It is known that Arsenal Firearms has production facilities not only in Russia, but also in Italy and Austria. All of them will deal with the production of products for different markets. The main office is located in our country. The company’s founders are Russian businessman Dmitry Streshinsky and Italian gunsmith Nicola Bandini.

In the arms field, Arsenal Firearms appeared quite recently - March 9 2012, debuting with a whole line of models (rifles, pistols, knives).

    Honestly, Italians seem to be breaking everything double-barrel. At the beginning of the 20th century, the not-so-well-known Revelli machine gun was chambered for a pistol round. The usual pair of two submachine guns.

    A completely pointless novelty. Outstanding 1911 and so ruffled.
    Why, for what? Correctly noted above, unless to pull loot from collectors.

    As you can see from the photographs, he shoots with either the right or left barrel (the triggers are separated like a hunting double-barreled shotgun). Apparently they were trying to solve the problem of changing the clip ...... would make a better bazooka))))))))

    The practical need for such a toy is very doubtful. An ordinary small-sized PP will block this ratchet in all respects ...
    The only niche, and even that is not too big to offer this machine to fans of weapons exotic.

      PP with a .45 caliber in a small version, something is not observed.

        especially small-sized do not, but the ultrasound in .45 was. Another question - why do we need a 2 barrel self-loading pistol. 16 rounds is normal, but there is a Canadian Para-Order with the same magazine, and with a rate of fire of about 90 rounds per minute, which gives an ordinary pistol, it’s almost the same effect as this monster, actually connected 2 Colts. maybe it's just a photo montage?

    Come on, this was not created for practical use. Just a gift version or tribute to one of the most famous pistols of the 20th. Anyway, well done Arsenal Firearms, make a difference in the world of armaments)) After all, this gun will be in 100 years in some article about unusual pistols of the past))

    Well, why did you all begin to drive this gun? for example, for intelligence agencies, the main thing is not accuracy, but rate of fire, because they don’t beat a sable in the eye! and this monster has a monstrous rate of fire! entire store in 3-5 seconds! whatever you say, but for every product there is a merchant, and the merchant will be not only from collectors. yes, by the way, they can be said, INNOVATORS. the first double-barreled pistol like that.
