Double Tap Defense Shipping The Double Tap Derringer

    Some of the best news I’ve heard this week comes from Double Tap Defense the designers of the derringer that has drawn a good deal of attention over the last year and a half.


    Many of you are aware there has been a delay in manufacturing these guns. The details are no longer of importance. What is important is they have a new manufacturer that uses the latest state of the art equipment. I had hands on with several of these today and the workmanship is first rate. The finish is also very well done with no sign of and discoloration, light spots or anything else to detract from the quality of the Double Tap.


    More good news came from Mr. Raymond Kohout who owns the company and designed the Double Tap. They will begin shipping in an incredible six weeks. What’s incredible about this is five months ago things were in limbo. From that time period until now they found a new manufacturer, brought in the right machines for production got the plant up and running then started making these guns. That may not seem like a big deal but that is a real feat to accomplish that in such a short time. It speaks well for the determination of Mr. Kohout and the dedication of the new manufacturer to get the product out.


    What we will have to choose from will be the Double Tap two shot derringer in 9mm or 45 acp. The material is a choice of Titanium or aluminum frame. They can be purchased with or without ported barrels.
