The AF2011 double barrel pistol is the very first industrial double barrel semiautomatic pistol of all time. Arsenal Firearms wanted to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the legendary Colt 1911 by making a true industrial market-ready double barrel semi-automatic .45 caliber pistol. Arsenal Firearms achieved success in the brief span of six months after intense around-the-clock 3D designing, stereo lithographic modeling, and parts machining. The result is an amazing gun that can be handled by any shooter able to shoot a standard 1911.
The AF2011 has amazing target performance for the shooter. It will group all eight double .45 caliber rounds (16 bullets) held in the dual column magazine, in a target the size of an orange at 15 yards. The stopping power of the AF2011 is tremendous. Two bullets weighing a total of 460 grains impacting at 1 to 2 inches apart (depending on the distance of the target) will knock down a bull, while the full total of 16+2 bullets, (payload exceeding 4000 grains) can be delivered to the target in less than three seconds.
The most interesting feature of Arsenal Firearms new pistol, which they strived to keep during the development of the project, is the interchangeability of the majority of internal parts. Most come as standard 1911 replacement parts. These include firing pins, firing pins plates, sear groups, triple springs, inner parts of the mainspring housing, recoil springs, recoil rods, magazine bodies and inner parts, adjustable sights, grips, grips screws, and bushings.
