Arrow Double barreled assault rifle

New IDF Rifle has Double Barrel
First Israeli twin-barrel assault rifle has greater fire power and effectiveness, uses regular ammunition.

Israel Defense


A new Israeli assault rifle features a twin barrel – the first such gun to be made in Israel, writes Israel Defense.

Silver Shadow, the firm that manufactures the Gilboa assault rifle, will soon unveil a new member of the Gilboa family with a double barrel, meaningfully increasing fire power and enhancing the effect of a hit on target.

The gun uses standard ammunition.

The new weapon will be presented by the company at the Eurosatory 2012 weapons trade show, to be held in June in Paris. The exhibit is one of the largest of its kind, and is held every two years.

The Israeli booth at Eurosatory is regularly one of the main attractions at the fair. The weapon and its capabilities will be fully exposed in the eighth issue of Israel Defense, which will soon hit the stands.

WOW!!!! THAT'S AWESOME! Do you think this would be aligned for use within regular forces?

think this is just a dumb idea. two barrels are good if you want to shoot down air-plains, an assault rifle doesn’t need all of the weight of 2 barrels and it doesn’t need the increase fire in power. its like what they had in “sons of guns” a complete bad and dumb idea that looks cool but no one would ever want to use it.

yeah and with the increase in firepower comes the need to carry twice as much ammo!!

Seems like it is just a lot of extra weapon weight without much benefit.

An extra barrel to mow down additional arabs trying to kill you? Sounds like a good idea.

I think it would be more useful if one barrel fired a different round.

One set up may be for a normal 5.56mm round on one side, and the other with a .50 caliber beowolf round for brutal close up stopping power.

Soviet had a prototype of double barreled LMG back in late '70.It was a project of G.N.Nikonov,guy who afterwards developed AN-94 Akaban assault rifle.Two barrels allowed for the firing rate of more than 3000 rounds per minute.

eh I think it's just that they built it based on the age old idea of "No other reason than because I can and it's fun and I'm bored." :)

It's neat even if it has no real practical use.
