    Dual Yoked AR 15s - What Do You Think?



    Uh ... just no.

    Yeah, if I was still 18 and full of vinegar I'd have thought this was cool, an essential addition to the firearms collection which would offer me a lifetime of endless plinking fun out at the side of the hill on our old family place on the lake. I'm so fossilized and jaded now that I immediately realize that the "new" would wear off significantly on the very first plinking session and the thing would take on the characteristics of an ammo burner that would excessively dent my hand loading efforts.

    i admire rifles most of all, but as Townshend Whelen famously said: "Only accurate rifles are important."

    Such groups at only 100 yards are uninteresting in the extreme.



    Only my opinion.

    Do y'all see a valid use for a double AR 15 outside of the fun and the novelty of it all?

    Which is alright. It is (suppose to be) a free country and gun owners ought to be able to own these if they want to.

    Naw, I wouldn’t be interested. I can get close enough to those group sizes with a handgun off the bench and have something much more practical, cheaper to shoot, and just as much fun, imo.

    I would rate it the same as the double 1911, interesting concept but I have no desire for one.

    You cant say that it doesnt have any use... It easily shows you who has no idea about what they are doing.

    It would be fun on a tripod I suppose. With that setup - I've got an AR10 that weighs less with optic and 25rd mag than that thing does bone stock and empty, and I expect 25rds of 308 would be enough to take care of whatever problem I find myself in.
    I'd say accuracy is pretty decent for what it is, historically it's tough to weld two guns together and have any kind of accuracy without very pricey, carefully regulated double rifles. 4" is a lot better than I would've expected.

    Looks like a solution to a nonexistent problem.

    Not interested.

    I agree with Bryan. The M-1 Garand here can do sub-2" 3-shot group at 100 yards with Greek M2 ball. I found that a lot more interesting, not to mention rewarding!

    Just because you can build something doesn't mean you should.

    I'd mount it on a tripod, add an RDS with a large field of view, add one of those hand crank "actuators", find some tracers, and use it for coyote control off my back deck. Might be fun to burn through a couple mags while one runs across my back 40.

    Other than a fun gimmick, not very practical.
