Then there is the issue of the barrels. Are they true parallel? Do they converge? At what distance?. If it's not useful at medium range due to the double barrel design(something that has never worked at any decent distance, IIRC), then what is the point, more bullets downrange?

I'll stick with my binary trigger if that's the case.

It's a novel idea, but I would have had a very hard time, personally, putting any money into prototyping such a bad/pointless idea.

Holy Crap!!!!

Looking at the video when he has the gun upside down, it looks like both triggers are OUTSIDE the trigger guard. Sweet jesus that looks dangerous, and just plan foolish from a design standpoint.

Edit: I'm looking at 0:35 in the first video.

Ha,wouldn`t mind having one just to PO the liberals,lmao.Other than that,I have no use for it,would rather have a 6.5 Greandal with a Shilen barrel and Leuopold scope to punch one hole groups and hunt deer.It would be fun cutting loose with it,though.

Yes, they converge--at whatever distance you want; it;s adjustable. Yes, the point is more bullets downrange.


I'll stick with my binary trigger if that's the case.


That makes it a machine gun. Different rules. Separate triggers means it can be sold where you can buy normal AR-15s. Watch the second video, especially.

Binary trigger DOES NOT convert a gun into a machine gun and are legal, in all states as far as I know(looked at fostechs site and it did not state they restrict sales to any state).

This thing is just unnecessary complexity. Dealing with two magazine, possibly emptied at different rates, whether dropped by one release or worse, two seperate ones, would just be a expensive, heavy and cumbersome answer to a question nobody asked.

While I agree with most of your points, the question has been asked since the '50s and '60s

Couldnt watch the videos, guess you answered my question...regarding setting the optic but Im still not overly impressed from a practicality perspective.

precision shooters like myself dont have the need for this type of rifle.

I don't see this as much more than a gimmick like the double barrel 1911, the G2 RIP projectile, and pistol bayonettes.

This is why I find the firearms industry lacking. I want to see something truly new, and all we get in response is another piece of plastic, another barrel(which would make this impossible to be accurate with at distance), another poorly designed round based essentially on the same basic principles and technologies used over a century ago, and multiple excuses for why better projectile designs, alternative propellants, and integrated electronics for sight and target tracking can't be done.

Double barrel AR...what garbage.

Curious the Israeli's would need this ? Or devise it.. I am sure they intend full auto versions...

I see what you're saying about the trigger guard--while that is a bit alarming, when looking at the gun as a whole, I feel like the massive width of the magazine well(s) provides ample protection over accidental trigger manipulation. It's not like you'll be pocket-carrying this thing, and I would hope (I know..."hope") that anyone willing to buy and shoot this weapon would already have the fundamentals of trigger discipline engrained in their brains and muscle memory.

Yes...it's all in the article in the OP.

Reminds me of the super cool drilling rifles where you can have a .22,.308 and a shot gun slug all in one weapons. This kind of hardware is neat but no where near a new idea.

Double trigger and separate cartridges?

Should be a single trigger and joined double cartridge

So my take on this:

Its really seems to be marketed for the videogame crowd. IMHO. If you need the two barrels to get rounds on your target you:

1) Need to go to the range more
2) perhaps look to a shotgun

I'm sticking to my Noveske Gen 3 Recon in a single barrel

I did a lot of feral pig slaughtering in another life and other than the "look what I have" factor I would not want one. To heavy with two barrels and two mags. I wonder about the "sighting in" and accuracy also.. Different strokes for different folks but just not a practical firearm for me.

I'm guessing that the two barrels hope to do away with sighting in etc LOL

For alot of us our long rifles are mean for a SHTF situation and I agree 100% its just not practical for that scenario or for me in general

Nice gimmick. Not seeing any advantage to semi auto, double barrel anything.
