Double Tap Firearms Announces Production Delays

We just received this press release from Double Tap Firearms’ public relations agency, Laura Burgess Marketing. It’s an unfortunate announcement as we thought the Double Tap pistol was a cool, modern version of the derringer. Additionally, FirstSpear, working in conjunction with developer Ray Kahout, had produced some great accessories for the firearm. Hope he gets this thing moving again soon.

To our valued customers:

As the inventor of the DoubleTap pistol and owner of the design and utility patents, along with other intellectual property including the DoubleTap name, I am issuing this press release to inform our loyal customers of the current status of the production of this new innovative pistol.

Since we introduced the DoubleTap Tactical Pocket Pistol in November of last year, we have been overwhelmed by the industry reception; the popularity confirmed by literally tens of thousands of orders placed by consumers to their dealers, through our distributor partners.

Unfortunately, with the deepest regret, today I announce that we have terminated our relationship with HEIZER DEFENSE, our manufacturing partner, due to their inability to manufacture the DoubleTap pistol. I cannot comment further on this subject at this time, under advice from legal counsel, due to pending litigation.

It is our intention to immediately license the design to a leading firearms manufacturer or to align with another manufacturing source to produce the DoubleTap. We intend to accomplish this as quickly as possible to satisfy the huge demand for the DoubleTap pistol. I will make a further announcement as soon as we have established a new manufacturing agreement.

    Wow. Sounds like a lawsuit a brewing

    There’s a company out of Texas, Bond Arms, that makes derringers for around the same price point. They don’t have the extra round storage Double Tap was offering, but they do offer a variety of calibers with all barrels being interchangeable with all mechanisms.
