DoubleTap, led by inventor and founder Raymond Kohout, announced today that it had selected Naples, Fla.-based Azimuth Technology LLC to manufacture its concealed carry pistol.
In October, DoubleTap ended its partnership with St. Louis-based firearms company Heizer, which previously had been tapped to produce the pistol.
At the time, Kohout, a one-time gun retailer who has more than 30 years of firearms industry experience, announced that he was ending his relationship with “Heizer Defense, our manufacturing partner, due to their inability to manufacture the DoubleTap pistol.”
The DoubleTap pistol is five-eighths of an inch wide and weighs 14 ounces, or about the size of an iPhone, making it the slimmest and lightest on the market, according to the company. While other small guns also are small caliber, Kohout said, the no snag, hammerless DoubleTap carries two .45-caliber or 9 mm rounds in the chamber and two spare rounds in the grip.
Azimuth Technology is led by founder by Len Zaiser and Len Zaiser IV. The company produces products for various industries including defense, aerospace and the oil/gas industries.
