I didn't see much new innovation. It looks like an XD. I do like the low profile. I wonder how much? These are the guys that brought us the double barrel 1911.
What's so great and innovative about it?
Glock 23 - CZ 452 ZKM Special
Walther P22 - LMT STD 16
Mossberg 500 - Kahr P380
Henry H001Y - Winchester 12
Smith & Wesson M&P Shield
Looks like it has a really low bore axis but that's all that jumped out at me.
From the same company that thought a double barrel 1911 was worth building; doesn't make me take them seriously on any of their other products.
Looks like a Glock met a Walther and had a child.
Kind of reminds me of the KelTech .22 magnum pistol.

Actually if you don't just look at the pictures and review the specs it does have some seriously innovative internal features that I have never seen on any other handgun.
Also the real value of the double barreled 1911 is really not so much with the gun itself - which I do think is not much more than a novelty expensive boy-toy...the real value in it is the pioneering of some totally revolutionary firearm design and manufacturing techniques that are going to filter out and completely alter the way firearms go from idea to computer to manufacture and we are all going to eventually benefit greatly from that as firearm consumers.
So...don't look at that double barreled 1911 for what it is (in and of itself) look at it in terms of the unique way it was created and fabricated.
If I was into buying stock I'd buy a few shares of their stock now.
I'd like to see how it performs in my hands before I start dogging on it.
All the claimed "innovations" may really be noted in how it performs, not how it looks.
Looks okay to me so far.

'Clinging to my guns and religion
Watched a couple YouTube videos on it, I'm a believer in low bore axis. It has an interesting lockup, where the barrel doesn't tilt. Looks like they wanted to do something different besides ye olde browning tilting barrel lockup. Supposedly the rounds are fed as close to inline with the barrel as possible for reliability. I don't know about that trigger stroke... It's safety is based on the pressure applied to the trigger in a particular area in a particular direction... maybe they figured out a finger squeezes a trigger differently than a foreign object in the trigger guard presses on a trigger? They're definitely gonna need a compact version. I'm at least interested in what happens with these guys.
It may be a that some of you all are not seeing the right pistol. they make a double barrel simi which is certainly "different".

The pistol's main innovation is in-line recoil (the barrel recoils straight back, rather than tilting or twisting). This could allow easier control of the gun during recoil. The straight back recoil also allows the addition of really long barrel, and crazy accessories to go with it. This very kit is called their Long Range Conversion ... it looks like a pistol that wishes it was a rifle!
