Why the goofy trigger? :confused:
Looks like it's going to catch on pretty much anything.
Is it because it's stiff enough that you need 2 fingers to pull it?

Looks like it could be fun/cool to shoot though.

The goofiness factor I'm assuming is to make sure there are two distinct triggers, so legally speaking it is not a machine-gun (one trigger pull + two rounds sent down range = MG under NFA). Why no trigger guard to prevent snags, that I can't explain.

I have one coming in next week. Will provide a range report. :)

Novilty guns can be fun.
But its likely this one will be a cheep pick up in a year or so.

Then again? You never know.
It may get used in some famous Movie and quadruple in value like my COP .357 did. ;)

It's because it's volley fire. Two rounds in two chambers, each firing simultaniously only once with one trigger pull.

....says "the trigger pull is much too heavy". Well, at least it's difficult to hit a 10" plate at 10 feet? o_O

Why?
