Larry Vickers Visits The Italian Firearms Valley To Talk To Arsenal

Doesn’t TURN IT AWWWWWWWWF while he’s there at Arsenal Firearms:

0:37 – Coolest slow motion shot I’ve seen with the double 1911 so far!

Looks like a really cool old Italian town.

1:15 – Dimitri’s wife runs shit, I can tell.  She looks like a boss.

Interesting it’s the same guy who made the miniature guns Larry looked at before.  I’m surprised that they are surprised the double 1911 is doing so well and is in such high demand.  I’m not surprised no one wants to pay big money for those miniature guns (even though they are really cool).

Here is a much more useful “part 2” video where Larry Vuitton talks to one of the founders, Nicola Bandini:

4:08 – haha he has the same style magnetic-in-the-middle old man glasses that Larry has worn in other videos!  I didn’t know that was a thing.

Good lighting the Arsenal office… LAV’s Rolex Submariner is really shining nice.  I see you playa, I see you.

5:12 – Holy… that’s crazy how a small variation between firing pins can mess up the POI so much.

Jerry-Miculek-Double-Barrel-1911sSomething I just thought of… how is this thing sighted in?  left and right of point of aim is ideally where the impact would be?

Another thing… can you imagine the media frenzy if this gun was ever used in a high profile disgusting blood bath scenario, or even a controversial self defense shooting they love so much?  Ugh… it would definitely be an “Assault 1911”, or be given some other nickname we’d all roll our eyes at.

I have no idea what Glock’s manufacturing, assembly, quality control etc… looks like, but I’m guessing it’s a lot less of a pain in the ass than what Arsenal has to go through with all this hand fitted-ness.

Arsenal is sure getting a ton of press with this gun.  I wonder if they are paying for it all, and if guys like Jerry Miculek got sent the guns for free?  Was Larry was livin’ large (no pun intended, seriously) in Italy on the Arsenal dime for a bit while he shot these videos too?

Thoughts?

P.S. How funny would it be if Arsenal came out with an “ARSENAL AF” t-shirt? hahahha

Magnum Research needs to get on their game and come out with the double deagle.

BTW I totally want one of these things.

That tube thingy in the case, is it a suppressor?

I was thinking the same thing… but how would it attach, and why haven’t we seen it yet? Probably some sort of double 1911 barrel bushing tool is my guess.

That’s the cleaning kit, I believe.

The bushing tool is that stick with the rounded top to the left.

That makes the most sense!

only a matter of time before a .45ACP hang fire gets explody in a shooter’s face.
