Does anyone have one of these guns, I know there could be a rust problem with the two barrel idea. I remember Al Ljutic shooting one of these years ago at the Spokane gun club. I had one and sold it, one of those deals I wish I should have thought about. Jerry
I have one but don't shoot it anymore. As far as the rust between the two barrels, who cares? It would be hundreds of years before any corrosion in that environment would reduce the strength of the barrel enough to be a problem. Rust on guns is pretty much a cosmetic issue and you sure can't see any rust that might be in that area. I liked it because I could change the point of impact quickly between singles and HC. I now shoot a Ljutic 2 barrel set that also solves that problem.
IT sure is a big sewer pipe of a gun but excellent design. I would like to have a modern version with a aluminum outer barrel to reduce weight or carbon fiber. Al was way ahead on that one. I shot one of my friends Banana guns and ran them all. That was the second time I shot a Ljutic and just ran them first was the space gun in the 80's
You go up to Vancouver BC and you will see 50% of the Banana guns that were ever made. For whatever reason they were very popular with the Canadians. I could have sold mine up there more than one time.
If you really want to see something unusual and your ever at the Ljutic plant ask them to get the Spacegun with the Banana style barrel out of the safe.
It's a mono gun who's barrel is "encased" in a larger tube or shroud. The barrel's point of impact is "adjusted" up and down by bending it against the inside of the outer "shroud". They look like the shooter is shooting about an 8 ga. gun. Very odd looking on the trapline but a typically Al Ljutic unique design.
Al was the Salvadore Dali of firearms design .... a truly unique man.
