The latest versions of the DoubleTap over/under tactical pistol will also have optional .40 S&W and .45 Colt/.410-gauge barrels. The titanium-framed, double-barreled pocket pistol weighs 15 ounces, measures 5.5 inches in overall length and 3.9 inches in height. The interchangeable barrels are attached to the frame by a single hinge pin similar to those used to mount the upper receiver on an AR-15 and locked in place by a lug integral with the barrels. For loading or reloading, an ambidextrous thumb latch on the side of the gun is pulled to the rear, causing the barrels to automatically tilt upward due to an internal stainless steel spring.
What makes the DoubleTap ideal for concealed carry is its enclosed action. Except for the trigger and thumb latch, all other moving parts are permanently sealed inside the fire-control grip housing. There is virtually no maintenance outside of cleaning the barrels, recoil shield and wiping down the exterior after firing. The lower third of the grip is a storage compartment with a hinged cover where two additional rounds on a speed strip can be kept for quick reloading. Externally, it is tough as nails with a hardcoat anodized matte black finish. Prices start at $499.
