First Look: Gilboa Snake Double Barrel AR-15

First Look: Gilboa Snake Double Barrel AR-15

gilboa_snake_double_barrel_ar-15_FSporting a unique double-barrel design, the Gilboa Snake is built to deliver twice the firepower.

Chambered in .223 Rem./5.56 NATO, the Snake incorporates two bolt carriers and dual 9.5-inch barrels with 1:7 twist. It fires from a proprietary piston-driven system and feeds from standard AR-15 magazines. Ambidextrous manipulation of the safety selector, magazine release and charging handle is possible from either side of the receiver.

Having two separate triggers allows users to deliver rounds through each barrel independently or simultaneously, and the firearm can be obtained with a single ATF registration as a short barreled rifle (SBR). Gilboa also plans to release another version of the snake with 16-inch barrels that won't require SBR paperwork.

In the web exclusive photo gallery and video below, we examine and test fire the Gilboa Snake at the Academi Training Facility in Moyock, North Carolina.


The Gilboa Snake offers double the firepower. The gun features two bolt carriers, two barrels, two triggers and two ejection ports.
The Snake incorporates an ambidextrous safety selector and magazine release.
Gilboa's double-barrel Snake is designed to help the shooter place two shots accurately by removing the delay of cycling another round and the impact of felt recoil on the second shot.
This version of the Snake is classified as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) because of its 9.5-inch barrels, collapsible stock and forward grip, but Gilboa also plans to introduce a version with a 16-inch barrel with no ATF registration required.
With a trigger for each barrel, the Gilboa can fire a single shot or two shots simultaneously, depending on the shooter's preference.
Just as with the safety selector and magazine release, the Snake's charging handle is also ambidextrous and operates both bolt carriers simultaneously.
