The Double Tap pistol has been a long time coming. It was announced back in 2011, then it was cancelled in 2012, then it was announced that a new manufacturer was sourced to produce them. Now apparently they’re actually shipping, for real this time. Well OK, even we won’t believe it till we see it. They’ll be available in both 9mm and .45ACP and retail from $499 to $799 depending on which model you get.
From their press release
“The DoubleTap™ Tactical Pocket Pistol has undergone significant improvements since we moved the project to our new manufacturer; making the DoubleTap™ a more reliable, simpler and less-parts-to-go-wrong type of concealed carry,” Raymond B. Kohout, DoubleTap™ inventor stated. “We have production capacity to quickly fill all orders and many anxious customers to appease, but we are certain, beyond a doubt, that this newest version is of higher quality and extremely reliable.”
Significant improvements to the DoubleTap™ include:
Interchangeable barrels (9mm and .45ACP) using a M16 style push pin that is now ambidextrous
Enhanced pistol grip with new “FRAG” pattern inspired by the fragmentation grenade
Improved, easier to use thumb-latch
Patent pending trigger system simplified to only four major components and featuring dual hammers for extra reliability
Double-action, sequentially fired mechanical trigger system has double-strike capability
Ported barrels available for both the 9mm and .45 ACP to reduce recoil and muzzle flip
