I received an e-mail about the current production status of the DoubleTap pistol. The gun is currently in the final design and engineering phase and almost ready to roll into full production. Right now, the final prototypes are being made and tested to meet all of the various state-specific requirements for safety and endurance.
The DoubleTap pistol is on schedule to begin production in early January 2013, with shipping to distributors early in the first quarter. This means that any pistols we see at SHOT should be the “real deal” as they will ship to consumers.
As regular readers know, DoubleTap Defense ended its relationship with Heizer Defense and is now working with Azimuth Technology to produce the handguns. I have definitely seen a lot more movement to production in the few short months that DoubleTap and Azimuth have been working together than in the entire time Heizer was part of the equation.
It would seem DoubleTap made a very good pick when selecting Azimuth to partner with.
