Gilboa Snake Double Barrel AR-15 Finally For Sale? [VIDEO]

The Gilboa snake hits the U.S.

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 . . . 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 . . .

    Fun range toy. Assuming it isn’t priced at crack pipe prices I may have to pick one up just to piss off my neighbors.

      Always a worthy cause. 😀

  2. avatar Oh noes says:

    Just fodder for the Antis

  3. avatar No one of consequence says:

    Missed opportunity: 5.56 in one barrel, 300 Blackout in the other.

    Just don’t cross the ‘zines…

      “Just don’t cross the ‘zines…”

      No biggie either way.

      .300BLK simply won’t chamber in the .223 barrel, and .223-5.56 going *bang* won’t hurt the .30 cal barrel…

      1. avatar Kroglikepie says:

        300BLK *WILL* chamber in a .223/5.56mm chamber, and the results are not fun at all. 5.56 is much more difficult to cram in a 300BLK chamber, but can be done.

      2. avatar J.T. says:

        .300 Blackout can chamber in a .223/5.56 barrel and will blow your gun up.

  4. avatar Joe R. says:

    Barrels far enough apart for two suppressors?

    1. avatar No one of consequence says:

      You could always stagger them.

      I wonder … If only one barrel were less than 16″ would you need a $100 tax stamp; or would it be $400 for the whole thing SBR’d?

    2. avatar Astigmatism says:

      Adapt a quick disconnect to both sides like pneumatic tools.

  5. avatar Nikcap says:

    Well I already bought myself a DP-12 shotgun for my 30th birthday. Might as well get this for my 31st birthday…

    Guaranteed to stroke out anti Freedom/Liberty Leftist’s,not one but two AR’s in one,Double Your Fun.

  7. avatar Southern Cross says:

    A solution looking for a problem?

  8. avatar Defens says:

    Let’s see. Buy the Snake, equip it with a set of binary custom triggers, then drop the whole enchilada into a bump stock – two chambers, each firing two rounds for every recoil cycle. That’d be like a jillion rounds per femtosecond from a 4 billion round clipazine.

      You owe me a new iPad. I just blew a snot rocket on my screen.

    2. avatar TheUnspoken says:

      Yes, but I need a double barreled grenade, er, flare launcher mounted under it.

      Ridiculous gun, yes. Is it useful for anything much, debatable. Should it be banned, no. It is the bump stock of guns.

    That will go just peachy with a double barrel .1911

  10. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    The answer to a question that I never asked.

  11. avatar IdahoBoy says:

    Why not three?

    1. avatar Joe in CT says:

      Hell, why not quad, two mags up, two mags down, run it like the old M45.

  12. avatar Disgruntled Floridian says:

    I might not like AR 15’s, but holy shit do I wanna pick one of these babies up in 300 blackout.
