I know that 90% of the reason why this was made probably is "because we can".
But doesn't a double-barrelled rifle also have twice the recoil (and with that muzzle climb)?
Or do I get something wrong there?

You are correct Max, I think it is just an exercise in engineering.

In practice, this rifle basically doubles the potential problems and solves nothing that couldn't be solved buy choosing another more powerful caliber.

x2 the recoil
x2 the weight
x2 the potential for malfunctions
x2 the ammo consumption and the associated weight of more ammo to carry.

Twice the hit ratio and twice the first stop power. Twice the failure rate. Just a way to bypass some ATF laws on guns.

As far as failures, if it was two completely seperate systems, one would be able to continue firing if the other malfunctioned.

When they both failed you would have a bigger hammer.

Actually heard that about shotguns in german tv just this saturday.
"Long, tough guns, with a lot of energy.
And once the shooter runs out of ammunition, they make a good club."

But on the other hand, that shows "expert" called the Glock17 a revolver, and related the number to the magazine-capacity.
Kinda embarrassing.
