Double Tap Ceases Production

October 11, 2012

This press release just came out this morning. It’s self explanatory and indicates the future of this innovative derringer is in doubt. When I obtain further information I’ll post it.

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. Titanium Ported DoubleTap

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.

    I had hoped the Double Tap would make it….maybe some day but for now it’s vaporware.

    I hoper so as well. I know they are trying to find another company to make them but that’s a lot of money and they are working with a tarnished rep.

    I would buy one if they did one in cast or alloy steel or aluminum. Too bad, there seems to be a derringer market but almost entirely based on the SA Remington. When a gun such as this to be worthwhile needs to be DAO (eg. High Standard D-101, C.O.P., DA-38, Sundance, etc.)

    They are back on the board now.In fact I spoke with them at SHOT and they will be selling within a couple of months. They have an aluminum model and Titanium. I write a good number of articles here these days. This is my story on Double Tap.
