DoubleTap Selects New Manufacturer oubleTap Defense LLC announced in early November that it has chosen Florida-based Azimuth Technology LLC to manufacture the DoubleTap pistol. In October, Raymond B. Kohout, the pistol’s inventor and founder of DoubleTap Defense, announced, “We have terminated our relationship with Heizer Defense, our manufacturing partner, due to their inability to manufacture the DoubleTap pistol.” The DoubleTap has received a lot of attention since its introduction in November 2011. However, the ongoing delayed delivery of the DoubleTap led to numerous complaints. “When we announced that DoubleTap was looking for a new manufacturing partner, we were pleasantly surprised by the positive response from the firearms manufacturers and other precision manufacturing companies,” Kohout said. “Out of all the responses we received, it became very clear that Azimuth Technology was the perfect fit in corporate philosophy, facility capability and plain, old-fashioned, rollup-your-sleeves determination to bring this product to market in a timely fashion.” Kohout has not announced a delivery date for the pistol.
