I think it was declared to be "full auto".

im watching a video. seems like a glorified, if not enhanced, bump fire type system.


i know at some point they got wise to it like armed bear said and did something about it, when abouts was this?

Haven't seen them at the GS's in a few years. It was/is a glorified bump fire trigger attachment POS.

It was/is a [...] POS.Agreed.

I bought one a few years back but never tried it. It was sold under another name. I came across it a few weekends ago while getting ready to work on the built-in drawers and cabinets in the man-cave. Three of us bought them at the time and only one tried it at the fear lease. He said it worked reall good at emptying 30rd clips.

Hmmm...

Wasn't there something available a long time back, called that? That's what I was thinking of. Maybe it was called something else.

They're still advertised for sale in Shotgun News.

I saw one at a gun show a few months back, they are still classified as semi only cause there is still only one pull of the trigger for each round fired. Though, a shoe string is a dangerous machine gun. I wonder how the teachers feel with almost every student walking around with a machine gun on their feet.

Had one, threw it in the garbage, the only time I actually got it to "work" the rifle was completely out of control. Totally useless and unsafe IMO....

Ahhh, here it is.

Fastfire.biz sells AutoBurst, the Tac Trigger, the "world famous" GAT firepower system, and last but not least, the Super Hell-Fire. All appear to the same BS, just in a different package. Even better, they'll sell you an "awesome DVD" of the GAT for only $10.
Wow, what a deal!

As ccsniper wrote, it's ATF ok because the trigger is being pulled for each round fired.
Never mind that it's not being pulled by you and it's not under control. It'll dump a mag quickly (assuming you can get it to work,) and I guess that's all you're supposed to care about.

That thing was fun, but I could only get it to rip off a burst about 1/4 of the time in my MAK 90. And sometimes, if you were holding it just right, you could empty most of a clip and the handguard would start smoking.

Isn't that one of the excuses the ATF had for raiding the davidian compound in Waco? Heard "full auto" fire and found some of those in the ashes?
It looks like the same thing could be accomplished for free by learning how to bumpfire.
I also wondered what happened to them though. They were all over gunshows in the 80's and 90's.

Since you can't control the rifle our put the rounds where you need them, it just seems like a way to waste ammo and wear out your barrel while showing off.

had one few years ago, takes practice, fun on the 1022, but not so much on the AK, AR, takes too much effort to hold, cause your grip hand is already busy

The decline in the Hellfire was in direct proportion to the rise in ammo prices.

I always see someone selling these at gun shows around here. While they seem a little interesting, I'd never get one. Why the hell would you want to put that many rounds down range with no control over them? I can bump-fire for the same effect and have more control over it.

I bought one years ago and it's completely worthless.

You can get the same thing done with a couple of rubberbands....and it's free.

I can say for certain, the video is ridiculous.

Lenny Magill looks like an extra from Miami Vice, and he doesn't seem to be able to operate the thing.
