    1 shot per trigger pull ,seems to be. The ATF probably had to make a ruling on it though. Wonder how accuate you could shoot with the reciever and barrel sliding back and forth?

    This is one of those "Why didn't I think of this?!" things - VERY ingenious. Not to mention, it has to be fun to plink around with a "full auto" .22.

    Oh yeah, those little doo-dads have been around for several years, using the bouncing trigger finger to activate the trigger. Here's one: The Gat trigger system.

    It's nothing more than a crank you stick onto your trigger guard. Looks fun, however, I don't plan on picking one up at the moment.

    I would love to have one. But Im not dropping a thousand dollars on it.

    Technically it is Legal. As rocky said, 1 shot per pull of the trigger.
    But Im willing to bet the ATF rules it not legal.
    All the other gadgets you buy out of the back of gun magazines have never been really made well and usually end up in the bottom of a drawer. But this thing, is internal and looks like quality.

    Again, its legal. But once this video gets played on the network news. Be sure to watch CSPAN for a senate meeting over it.

    Youd be better off getting the gatlin gun version, $400 for the kit + 2 rifles, prob a lot more accurate. They also make a version for the AK-47

    Would look nice bolted to the back of a 72' buick ala road warrior!

    ATF already ruled that it was legal if I recall, but like Sig229 said, once it gets into the news with an investigative report about "cheap and legal machineguns" then there will be some new law.

    Yes, I agree with the both of you. It will probably be somekind of stipulation stating "anykind of aftermarket add-on device that will assist the shooter in discharging of the weapon without the deliberate pull of the trigger finger."
    I'm no lawyer, so I'm probably wrong in the verbage. But it may sound simular.

    No, this is not a "trigger adaptor", it is a receiver platform. Essentially, it would be like connecting the firing mechanism to the side of a 105 mm pack howitzer- the recoil activates the firing. Bottom line,it's not a cheap wire set-up screwed to the trigger, nor does it require a tax stamp, so if you want legal, cheap, reliable FA, it looks to be a good way to go, so far.

    Lot's of folks here have $800+ 1911's, HK Tacticals, and P7s.......
