Akins Accelerator Update

Here’s a link to their ruling, which is nothing new. It should be noted that if this ruling stands, it’s not a far stretch to assert that any semi-automatic firearm can be classified as a machine gun.

Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them in. In this document, they give instructions and ask that you mail them the spring. Not only that, you should also inform them who you sold yours to in the event you no longer have it.

So, is a simple spring now a machine gun? Wouldn’t surprise me since a shoestring is.

    Apparently “single function of the trigger” = “single function of a finger”.

  2. SayUncle Says:

    yeah, they also mention that the trigger resets itself yet it fires more than one shot per function of the trigger. Those two statements are mutually exclusive.

    This reminds me when I had to turn in the pocket holster that I got for a Beretta .22LR. It wrapped around the and snapped so it would come out with the weapon. It was classified as ANY OTHER WEAPON. I was told that I had a choice turn it in or get a Class III. I turned it in.

    I guess that we all need to cut off our thumbs and turn them in since all “bump-firing” requires is a thumb. Ok, I guess it requires a pocket or belt-loop as well, so wee need to remove our thumbs, pockets and belt loops and send them in.

    Keep in mind that the quoted ruling does not require the “part or parts” to be in the presence of a firearm so everyone needs to send in their thumbs, pockets and beltloops regardless of whether they own a firearm or not.

    Anybody need to borrow my hacksaw? It’s a little bloody but it still works.

    By the way, you may need to have a friend help, after removing the thumb from your weak hand, it’s a little hard to hold the hacksaw in order to remove the thumb from your strong hand.

    I, _____________________________________, certify that the enclosed spring was removed from my Akins Accelerator and sent to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on __________________(date). I understand that replacing the spring on the Akins Accelerator constitutes a violation of law.

    Heh, I wonder, what the penalty is for altering or striking out the preprinted language above the space provided for your signature?

  6. SayUncle Says:

    I wouldn’t sign it because i don’t think it constitutes a violation of law.

    Washers have been called supressors. How long before soda bottles are considered suppressors also?

  8. Mike Williamson Says:

    A soda bottle IS a suppressor, if you duct tape it to your muzzle.

    A stock IS a trigger, if gripping it causes the weapon to recoil and fire continuously.

    There is a time and place for paranoia. This is not it.

    Since it appears no one is actually capable of reading the ATF letters, which were written at a very basic, elementary school level, I think the country is #@!$ed.

    It certainly creates a level of fear in me that morons will plunk down a grand for a device, wave around a letter that doesn’t actually state ANYWHERE “This device is in compliance,” and then get upset when the real word comes down. I certainly hope they’re better at reading the instructions on Tannerite and ammo, because I don’t want to be anywhere near them when the blow their testicles off.

  9. SayUncle Says:

    Mike, as i said:

    yeah, they also mention that the trigger resets itself yet it fires more than one shot per function of the trigger. Those two statements are mutually exclusive.

    So, clearly, i have read the letters and I have noted that it is inconsistent and it is inconsistent with past letters.

    Also, a soda bottle taped to your weapon is only a suppressor if it actually suppresses sound and/or you intended to suppress the weapon.
