Bad news recently hit those who eagerly awaited the full-scale production and distribution of the DoubleTap pistol, the sleek, thin, two-shots derringer-style pocket handgun that made sensation at the 2012 SHOT Show. Advertised as one of the most advanced handguns to be available today, the DoubleTap is an incredibly lightweight shooting instrument, thanks to its all-titanium construction, and was to be made available in both 9mm and .45 calibers, featuring a two-shots compensated barrel for controllability and a further two-rounds spare speedloader to be stored inside the grip.
Last October 11th, 2012, Mr. Raymond B. Kohout, inventor of the DoubleTap pistol and holder of all rights thereof, issued a press release and a letter to all customers through Laura Burgess Marketing announcing that, despite increasing popularity and overwhelming industry reception, with literally tens of thousands of orders placed by consumers to their dealers through authorized distributor partners, decision was taken to terminate all relationships with Heizer Defense LLC., the designated manufacturing partner for the production of the DoubleTap™ pistol, due to their inability to manufacture the gun itself.
Mr. Kohout refused to comment further on the subject at this time, under advice from legal counsel, due to pending litigation. He however stated that itʼs his intention to immediately license the design to a leading firearms manufacturer or to align with another manufacturing source to produce the DoubleTap. Intentions are to accomplish this as quickly as possible to satisfy the huge demand for the DoubleTap pistol, and further announcements will be made as soon as a new manufacturing agreement will have been established. Any and all present and future further informations and news updates will be published and shall be found by interested customers on the official website of the DoubleTap™ pistol.
