Heizer and Double Tap are both going forward with their designs

Yes, they have split, but they both apparently still think that they have the rights to the designs/copyrights…. GH&G has some images of both designs in the works. Here is the concept art for the new Heizer model… and here are some early production pics of the Double Tap model.

All things being equal (assuming equal quality and reliability) I am sure that price-point will play a huge factor, as will marketing.
