    "Bumpstick" is a name for a device that helps you to "bumpfire", sort of like one of those "Hellfire" doo-dads, only more effective. You can also build them for a semi-auto rifle (which the above looks like it was made for), and all it does is give you something the push the trigger against; when the rifle/shotgun/pistol recoils, this lets the trigger reset, but (because you're still pushing the firearm slightly FORWARD) fires as soon as the trigger is pushed again.

    If the BATFE ruled that the 10/22 shoestring thing was illegal, then I'm going to bet they see this thing the same way.

    That thing looks amazingly accurate! :neener:

    Who knows if it's legal. The answer used to be yes, but after the Akins deal it seems they like to change their mind on bump firing devices.

    The trigger still has to be pulled for each shot, and each pull only fires one shot, so it is not true automatic fire. It would be no different than rigging up a hand crank with a cam to trip the trigger with each turn of the crank. At a gun show I saw a pair of Ruger 10/22 actions rigged this way to make a sort of Gatling gun.

    In the videos I've seen of these devices, the gun has to be held very loosely to allow the necessary back and forth movement. Partly or mostly because of this, it was also striking that although a lot of bullets spat out in a hurry, they did little more than kick up dirt around the target, with few rounds actually hitting it.

    Sounds like a quick road to self-injury to me.

    Looks like a neat little trick that has no real use or purpose.

    IMO, ammo is much too expensive nowadays to waste it on tricks like this. I'm much more concerned with trying to perfect the old "13 rounds of 40S&W through a single hole" trick.

    Swingset (a member here) has "plans" and a video of one of these working pretty well with an AR at http://www.localnumber69.com/temp/Aimed_Shoulder_Fire.mpg I think I'd prefer an extra dowel or to to support the rifle stock and make sure it doen't rotate out of alignment with the bump-fire stock while firing, though.

    I'm worried that videos like this are just playing into the Brady Bunch's hands. We argue that semi-auto is one shot per trigger pull, and they show this video. Technically we're right but they make us look very bad and garner sympathy for banning semi-autos.
