Must have

Check out the Akins Accelerator. It is a stock/spring system for a Ruger 10/22 that offers a rate of fire of 650 RPM. It’s completely legal (except in Cali and Minnesota) as it is not a machine gun. Video here. A bit pricey at about $1,000 but much cheaper than than a pre-86 registered Ruger 10/22 that comes in at about $10K. Check it:

Update: youtube seems to have gone poof. Video may be up later or you can get it here.

    I’m dubious. Legality depends on how you define “single function of the trigger”. According to their website, the fed signed off on it that it’s okay to manufacture, sell, and own. But I would not be surprised if they changed their mind down the road.

    You know, it makes me wonder if one can’t design a trigger assembly that attaches to the bolt itself… fire and the trigger withdraws, ending that particular “function”, and when it comes back to battery your finger is already there, pressing it again…

    *shrug* probably a better use of time and brain cells to figure out how to get them to reopen the registry again. Do that and I’ll have an open bolt 9mm thrown together and registered faster than you can say “whoopeee!”.

    DSG, yeah, it’s called a shoestring and it’s illegal.

  4. drstrangegun Says:

    No no, I know about the shoestring. I mean something entirely different.

    I just can’t express it in words, that’s the problem with someone like me who designs things in their heads, *in images*.

  5. SayUncle Says:

    Well, make a drawing. Heck, these guys are selling this thing for $1K (it probably costs 1/5th of that to make). If you have an idea, try to make it and sell it 😉
