I’m sure you all remember the Gilboa Snake Double Barreled AR-15 from Israel?

Or the Arsenal Double Barreled 1911 Pistol?

For his birthday, Tony Rumore or Tromix Lead Delivery Systems came up with a slightly different idea and built himself a .358 SOCOM Dueling Rifle.

Or, perhaps someone was joking on his behalf as he turned a year older and wiser…

As I hope everyone can understand the rifle – or is it rifles? – is not a real product.

    If this was real, using actual lower receivers… I wonder what category firearm the ATF would consider it.

    • Vhyrus

      Destructive device.

      Don’t believe me? Try shooting it.

    • Anomanom

      The “Perfect” category. Only fires once ever, only causes harm to the user.

      what do you mean IF? it IS real, with REAL lowers.

  • Must be a slow day in the world of firearms.

    What an expensive non working firearm. To each their own, for the money if rather buy a used pvs14 or a Atpial for my birthday for the same amount.

    • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

      The guy is a licensed manufacturer. Also it looks like every piece can easily be re-used except for the barrel, which he likely turned himself. Not really a big deal. Not really expensive.

    Tony not only makes outstanding products, he’s always making some of the funniest joke products. It does make me miss Birdman Weapon Systems joke guns, though!

    • Andy B

      My buddy actually has the Nuke 50 from Birdman. Crazy to shoot.

    • El Duderino

      A Mountain Dew shotgun is my bedside companion at night!

  • RogUinta

    Tony is, in no particular order, (a) hilarious, and (b) a genius.

    I’ve followed his stuff for ages. Frankly my Saiga-12 wouldn’t be worthwhile without the parts his company produces.

  • Anomanom

    It’s the Hatfield-McCoy Patent Dueling Rifle.

  • noob

    plot twist! the bore is totally obstructed and the ammo is full of high explosive instead of propellant.

    the only winning move is not to play.

    Guaranteed not to miss.

    So, a thought.Could you remove the bolt carrier and standard buffer tube and actually run a thin barrel completely through an AR-15 from barrel nut to the end of the collapsible stock?

    If so, you could actually create a version of this that was a functional, albeit completely useless, firearm, shooting out the end of the ‘stock’ on one side.

    • Sianmink

      I don’t see why not.
      It’d get guaranteed funny looks at the range.

      • Cymond

        If the barrel nut(s) are pinned and welded, then you could use a barrel about 12″ long without it being a SBR. The “other” upper receiver is essentially a pinned & welded flash hider.

        Even better, ream chambers in both ends of the barrel. Either use 2 offset gas blocks, or one double block. Remove the BCG from one rifle, remove the buffer, drill a small (0.40″ home in the middle of the buffer tube and stock. It would not only function, but you could simply swap the BCG and buffer to the other end, turn it around, and shoot out the other end!

        • Cymond

          In essence, it would be completely symmetrical, except for the BCG and buffer.

          You could dress one end in FDE and the other in OD green to emphasize it when you swap it around.

  • Gary Kirk

    For those circumstances where you’re too stupid to make your AR go boom with a 300 BO 556 mix up on your own..

  • Nick

    Has Tony come up with a new cartridge? Never heard of the 358 Socom. He was making 375 and 458 Socom however.
