Yes, it’s real, but it isn’t something someone would want. Why? Because if say one side misfires or worse, stovepipes, then you have less than zero guns compared to just having two 1911s. Better to have one more powerful, reliable handgun, than some SLI/CrossFire abomination that isn’t as good as it sounds on paper.

There are also other such monstrosities, e.g. the the Gilboa Snake.

These are novelty guns. Someone tells you that no one should own an AR-15, so you buy a double AR-15. That’s about the only reason to own it.

They used to be popular before we invented better solutions - first revolvers and then semi-autos.

Rifles are mostly used for precision shooting and double barrel guns are not ideal for precision at longer ranges. Not only are the barrels offset, but each barrel is slightly different and may have a slightly different point of impact.
Pistols are meant to be small and light. Two barrels make a pistol larger and heavier, unless the barrels are small (see derringers). Nowadays you can get very compact semi-autos and revolvers, so derringers are out of fashion.
And TBH pump-action and semi-auto shotguns are very popular too. Double barrel are used for hunting and specific sports like trap shooting. Some people also own them for home defense and such, because:
  • they inherited it
  • other guns are illegal where they live
  • “nobody needs more than two shots” (until they do)
  • they are cheaper than pumps and semis
  • Doom Guy
There are also single-shot shotguns which, again, are used mostly for hunting.

The US Armed forces are ninjas with guns. They’re invisible and they see through walls, and prefer to strike at night.

There are plans for one that’s basically a piece of spring-wire melted into the carrier, but given the philosophy of the FGC-9, it isn’t strictly necessary on account of it being a direct-blowback firearm. The debate surrounding integrating one into the design basically says that if you’re going to integrate an extractor, you might as well redesign the ejector as well; and to be fair people are working towards those solutions.
Not all of us are lucky enough to be able to go down to our local gun store, fill out a 4473, and walk out with a semi-auto PCC…

Oh speaking of which I can’t own any such device, I signed my rights away during mental health services.
I’m still fascinated with the engineering. I would get an Colt AR-15 with a magpul stock, extended forgrip and large ambidextrous charging handle.

For sure, and from what I’ve heard from the people who’ve tried Derwood’s memagnet bullshit snakeoil PCC, one thing everyone agrees upon is that it’s extractor is super-nice, and is very well-liked. Even if the magnet shit is hokey, it does demonstrate why an extractor is appreciated, and why future 3D-printed designs should endeavour to include them.

If the FGC-9 is 3d printed does that mean it has an incredibly short lifespan like the Liberator?
