Italian company ARSENAL FIREARMS will supply its latest model, the AF2011 DUELLER PRISMATIC.45 ACP, to ‘SPECTRE’. The double barrel gun could first be seen in a still of actor and Wrestling Champion Dave Bautista in the latest issue of EMPIRE Magazine. The official website states:
It is with great pleasure that we can finally and officially announce that our brand new product – the AF2011 Dueller Prismatic – was selected some months ago to be one of the key weapons featured in the new James Bond movie “Spectre”, due to be released globally in November this year.
Arsenal Firearms supplied 5 stainless pistols to the James Bond production team in fall last year, to take part in various contemporary locations shootings. The guns, originally fully functioning and chambered in .45 ACP, have been modified
to shoot special movie-blank rounds. The technical challenge was quite demanding, as for the first time the movie industry specific adaptation team had to assess the functionality with a double barrel semiautomatic pistol.
Arsenal Firearms also supplied a number of dedicated accessories to the James Bond movie production, such as for instance the special double barrel Shoulder Rig pictured in the page.
The 007 appearance of the AF2011 comes actually as the third silver screen feature, the first one being in the independent US production “My Name is Paul”, while “The Intruders” a 56 episodes BBC America sequel is currently being aired across the Atlantic and over the Satellite for global viewing.
