Arsenal Firearms has gained federal approval for its AF2011-A1 double-barrel 1911 pistol and plans to begin distributing the unique weapon in January.

The Italian firearms manufacturer gained approval on Nov. 14 from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to sell a pistol the company announced in March.

At first glance, Arsenal's AF2011-A1 looks like two 1911s fused together. It will be offered in .45 ACP.

Apex International of Middletown, Conn., will distribute the AF2011-A1 and a series of dedicated accessories beginning Jan. 1, according to an Arsenal release.

The company is also planning to introduce other double-barrel firearms at SHOT Show 2013 beginning Jan. 15 in Las Vegas.

I'm having a bit of a hard time understanding this one. We don't have to declare a NEED for any weapon other than we WANT one, but what want or need does this gun fill? It seems to be the answer to a question that no one asked. Is Police Magazine implying that law enforcement should consider this when procuring weapons, or is it just a piece of gun industry news. I'm completely fine with the latter.

@Doug Yes, it's the latter. We like to keep officers informed about what kinds of firearms are available to the public. Thanks for reading!

I'm impressed with just the way its designed. Can't wait to see how this things fires. I would love to find out.
