If you thought the ordinary ‘scary black rifle’ got their knickers in a knot… wait until you meet his big brother.
Q: “Give me one good reason any civilian should have a gun like that?
The same Israeli wizards that brought us the CornerShot have brought another toy out of their workshop.
It’s a double-barrel rifle building off the AR-15 platform, and it has now entered full production for US availability.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, they literally just doubled down on the Left’s favorite whipping boy… and unleashed a glorious new beast into the world.
And because it is designed to operate as two independently-functioning systems, with separate trigger systems and all the rest, you don’t need special tags to get it.
Want to see it in action? Of course you do. (At about the 7:30 mark, she takes this beefy beast out to play with a sixty-round mag dump.)
Gilboa’s Snake rifle is built by the Israeli weapons manufacturer Silver Shadow. It is available as a semi-automatic civilian rifle and a selective fire model for military and law enforcement.
The select-fire variant has a pair of barrels connected to two gas blocks with two separate gas impingement systems.
The civilian variant features a pair of separate and independent gas blocks and tubes. The double trigger configuration avoids the ATF’s definition of a machine gun as a firearm that fires multiple rounds with a single trigger pull. Instead, a separate trigger is required to fire each barrel, just like a double-barreled shotgun. The select-fire version, however, features a single trigger.
Both versions feature separate ejection ports that eject spent brass to both the right and left sides of the rifle. In both variants, two separate magazines or a magazine coupler feed below the rifle.
Three Picatinny or keymod rails can support a variety of optics and other accessories above and around the twin barrels.
Gilboa has built various prototypes with barrel lengths ranging from 9.5″ to 16″. Each version has included ambidextrous controls and standard AR parts.
Caliber: .223 Rem/5.56 NATO
Weight (empty): 10 lbs, 13 oz. (4.9 kg)
Barrel Length: 9.5″, 11.5″, or 16″
Because it’s compatible with standard AR-15 parts, you can customize it the way you would customize your ‘ordinary’ AR-15.
So, ClashReaders, are you getting a head start on your Christmas wish list for next year?
