AF2011-A1 DOUBLE BARREL PISTOL

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 AF2011-A1 obviously features a number of very special parts, such as the single slide, the single frame, the single spur double hammer, the single grip safety, the single body double mainspring housing and the single double cavity magazine floor plate, the long and double magazine latch, the special barrel bushings and the hold open lever and side lever safety with long shafts: but the most interesting feature of the new pistol which we strived to keep during the development of the project, is the interchangeability of most internal parts, which come as standard 1911 replacement parts. These include the firing pins, the firing pins plates, the sears groups, the triple springs, the inner parts of the mainspring housings, the recoil springs and recoil springs rods, the magazine bodies and inner parts, the sights (including after market adjustable sights) the grips and grips screws and bushings.

Wow!
What a treat to 1911 lovers. For them anything better then a one 1911 is two 1911's. That too which will fit in onw hand and can be shot togather. Wonder when and if it will make its way here.

Pretty expensive they are! At about USD 4500, and that is before custom duty and GST etc, but again very unique, if someone can pay $5000.00 for a custom 1911, this is a must have for them, only in Canada they would have to limit the magazine capacity to 10.

I had the privilege of handling an NP 44 at a cobbler's shop in Karachi. It was well used and cared for. Extremely smooth slide and hammer and trigger.

It is now on my 'Must' buy list. In fact life will never be complete without one.

Not true for all of them, it wasn't designed to be very accurate initially, but it can be accurized for sure. Newer models are pretty accurate for an average Joe. Most earlier military firearms were designed and manufactured for reliabiliy, hence loose tolerances, which usually mean sacrificing accuracy.
