[SHOT 2016] Sun Devil MFG Double Devil Twin AR

Sun Devil MFG has come out with a twin AR called the Double Devil.


It is two AR lower receivers attached to a solid upper receiver. At first glance it looks like two upper receivers connected by two bridges. The bridges are not separate. The upper receivers are actually one complete piece of metal.

It has a monolithic billet heavy wall twin upper receivers. BAD Lever compatible and integral picatinny top rails. Since it has two independent lower receivers, it can be fired simultaneously using both hands on their respective sides and pulling the triggers simultaneously. They are not linked together.  The Double Devil gives a new meaning to “dual wielding”.

    Welding was invented a long time ago.

  • Tyler McCommon

    Well. Ummmmm… Ok.

  • sliversimpson

    So, it’s technically still two firearms since it uses two lower receivers?

  • Cal S.

    I’m just wondering how this is practical…

    …never mind, I gave that up a long time ago.

    • Iggy

      You could theoretically use it for suppressing fire, having a support person reload one while you keep firing the other… however I’m still stuck on why you’d ever want to do that with this.

      • Jwedel1231

        So they made a crew served AR. No, this is not a good thing.

  • Mr. FN

    Literally why. I have no other words for this level of incompetence.

  • Austin

    I’ve seen stupid, but dear lord. I could accomplish this by zip-tying two rifles together, with the bonus of being able to separate them once the scotch wears off.

  • Friend of Tibet

    If I can’t perform gross motor skill reload on it, I am not buying………

  • Nate H

    I guess it’s so two “buddies”, one right handed the other left, can shoot together while being close. Bromance^2

  • Gamle Aker

    Why only 2….why not go for 3 or 4

  • DW

    The Israeli twin-barreled AR suddenly seem very practical. At least it has a common trigger, common stock, a common fire control and a common rail system. It’s also lighter.

    • DW

      *Very practical compared with this.

  • Martin Grønsdal

    stupid is as stupid does

  • MrEllis

    Worst Space Marine cos-play ever.

  • Anomanom

    How the -blam!- are you actually supposed to use it? The only way i can see is to sit it on a table put the stocks on your chest, bend down to peer through the sight and use both hands to shoot.

  • Otis Tyme

    Marketed toward conjoined twins!

    This is so Red Jacket Firearms I hear a “neva been done befo” echo during the video.

  • billyoblivion


    I’ll have some of what they’ve been drinking…

  • Kyle

    Well this has to be the most useless thing show at SHOT in years.

  • TJbrena

    There was an Israeli weapon sort of like this called the Gilboa Snake. The difference was that it was literally two ARs joined at the reciever, or so it seemed. There’s an entry on Modern Firearms.

  • Evan

    Do they actually intend to try and sell these? Or is it just supposed to be a “look what we can do” thing that they make one of to show off? Either way, it’s asinine. And I thought the double 1911 was kinda cool, too.

  • jerry young

    Just dumb! too bulky to carry doesn’t even look good!

  • nova3930

    Now add the Franklin armory double fire trigger thing to both. Pintle mount and add a connection between the triggers for some true ridiculous

  • AD

    Maybe it’s supposed to be for movies or something? I could see one(?) of these sitting in a weapon mount on a beat up old military vehicle in some post-apocalyptic flick… but that’s about the only place where it makes even the slightest bit of sense.
