The development of this miracle took six months of intensive work, including 3D-modeling, stereolithography model building and final test of the working sample.
Of a new Russian-Italian weapons can be released 16 bullets in about three to five seconds. This result is extremely difficult to achieve with any conventional gun, except, of course, automatic models, capable to fire bursts.
Private weapons company Arsenal Firearms built exotic gun AF2011-A1 "Second Century" (informally referred to as "Twenty Eleven"). Caliber new items - .45 ACP (11, 43 x 23 mm).

But while there are many original elements, because "Second Century", on the conviction of the company - this is the first semi-automatic pistol with a double barrel mounted on a common frame, which is designed according to industry specifications in the calculation to serial production. (Small-scale "hand" of creation - do not count.)
Strictly speaking, the novelty can already be ordered, moreover, there are several options for finishing and subtleties in the sequence of operation of twin hammers and triggers.
For one shot "Second Century" produces two synchronously bullet weighing 30 grams, which hit the target at a distance of 2-5 centimeters apart (depending on the shooting distance). For comparison, a standard bullet from the cartridge 9 * 18 mm PM (for pistol Makarov) weighs 6, 1 g of double strike AF2011-A1 is able to dump bull Armourers claim.
