We first caught sight of the double-barreled Gilboa Snake rifle in June of 2012. “That’s some heavy sh*t,” our man Foghorn pronounced. Two years later, Nick got to grips with the gun at SHOT. He figured out how it worked, and how it passed ATF muster. “Machine guns are defined as firearms that send more than one bullet downrange with a single trigger action . . .
Gilboa designed the gun to use a split trigger arrangement — separate triggers for each barrel, but close enough to let the shooter pull them both at the same time.
Close but not cigar. We didn’t hear hide nor hair of the call me Snake for four years. Well there was this . . .
americangg.net reports that Israeli weapons manufacturer Silver Shadow will “start full production of the double barreled AR-15, the Snake, here in the United States.”
Where? When? No idea. Maybe never? The company’s website is down, having reached its bandwidth limit.
Speaking of bandwidth, if you want to blow the antis’ minds, you could do worse than buying a Snake. Which will be outlawed in California in three, two, one . . .
