Arsenal Double Barrel 1911




There have been many versions of John Browning’s popular 1911 pistol, from double stack 1911s to Spartan themed 1911s. Here is a 1911 that would make Mr. Browning facepalm. Arsenal Firearms is releasing a double barrel 1911, I kid you not. It’s looks more like two 1911s put side-by-side really, which also looks very impractical. I don’t know, maybe there’s a market for it.

The AF2011-A1 Double Barrel Pistol comes actually as the very first industrial double barrel semiautomatic pistol of all times. The original idea came about ten years back to Swiss armourer Vivian Mueller, who at the time experienced cutting and welding together multiple parts of the famous Sig P210: the result was a long slide, double barrel 9mm, highly decorated collector piece, which indeed shot very well.

Our idea took the challenge further: to commemorate the legendary Colt 1911-A1 in the Centenary by making a true industrial market-ready double barrel .45 caliber pistol. We achieved success in the brief span of 6 months, after intense and round-the-clock 3D designing, stereolithographic modeling and parts machining.

The gun can be handled by any shooter able to shoot with a .45 Acp and it is not only very pleasing, but very accurate and great fun. The AF2011-A1 holds amazing and surprising target performance for the shooter: in fact, it will group all the 8 double .45 caliber rounds (16 bullets) held in the duplex, single columns magazines, in a target of the size of an orange at 15 yards and of a water melon at 25.

The stopping power of the AF2011-A1 is tremendous: 2 bullets for a total of 460 Grains weight impacting at 1 to 2 inches apart (depending on the distance of the target) will knock down a bull, while the whole 18 bullets, for a payload exceeding 4000 Grains, can be delivered to the target in about 3 seconds.

The good folks over at CMMG put together this awesome AR-15 lower parts kit DIY. I wish this video was around when I built my first AR-15.

Gangsta Camo AK-47




I saw this gem over on GunBroker, this catastrophe is actually a Yugo M70AB2. At least the seller admits it’s “ghetto”. I can’t believe it actually got 4 bids.

FN Five-Seven Explodes



A member on the Kifaru forums posted about their FN Five-Seven going kaboom recently. Apparently a round fired while out of battery blowing the pistol to pieces and injuring his hand pretty badly.

Last week my FN Five-Seven blew up causing severe damage to my left hand (I am right handed). There are 6-8 pieces of shrapnel deep in my thumb and palm area which severed the nerves to my thumb and a portion of my palm. Surgery is required in an attempt to repair the hand by harvesting tissue from my leg. Wish me luck.

The “explosion” occurred on the last round of a 30 round mag loaded with the factory 40gr v-max stuff. On this particular day I only had three loaded magazines (70 rounds total) with me for the Five-Seven but had several other handguns to shoot after the Five-Seven. I began with a 20 round mag loaded with hand loads, then a 20 round mag loaded with factory ammo and finished with the 30 round mag with factory ammo. It was the very last round of 5.7×28 in my immediate possession that ruined my day ……. and a whole lot more!!

I have fired (600-700 rounds) both factory and hand loads through the pistol with zero issues since purchasing new in 2/2011. There are reports of the Five-Seven firing out of battery (OOB) which appears to be the case here but I am no weapons forensics expert. I am not a novice to shooting, handguns or reloading and have 20+ years of extensive experience with shooting and reloading.

I have been completely straightforward with FNH (i.e. Browning) so will now wait and see how they respond.

What Gun Would Boba Fett Use?



The bounty hunter Boba Fett is one of the most popular characters in Star Wars after Darth Vader, but if Boba Fett were a real person what gun would he use? Seeing as he was also a soldier of fortune I’m assuming he’d use an M4/AR-15 as it seems to be the preferred rifle of choice for many contractors around the world. With Magpul accessories of course.

While the infographic above was meant as obvious link bait by pandering to the gun crowd with its “Obama is the greatest gun Salesman in America” speal, it does have some interesting facts. It really makes me wish I had bought some Ruger stock a few years ago.

I’d imagine it would be pretty hard to hit anything, pretty cool looking though.
