Akins Accelerator 2

Long time readers may remember the Akins Accelerator. If you don’t, the TLDR version is that it was a bumpfire stock for the Ruger 10/22 (the first I’d seen) except it had a spring to do the bumping. A sample was sent to ATF, who couldn’t get the thing to work, for approval. ATF initially approved the device. Then, they actually saw one of them working and ruled that it was a machine gun. All the people who shelled out $1,200 for it now had to remove the evil spring to comply with ATF’s ruling.

Somehow it escaped my notice that there is now a springless version called the Akins Accelerator 2. Here’s a video of it in action:

Looks to be a simple bumpfire type stock now. Banning that evil spring helped.

    Plenty of FTF in the marketing video… no thanks

    Because shooting 22lr isn’t expensive enough. Now we need to shoot faster.

    I want one so badly.

    What’s with all the FTF? Doesn’t seem very reliable.

  5. Remington 597 Owner Says:

    Haha, fun shooting at its best. Do they have the same thing for other 22lr rifles?

    And what does this little beauty cost?? I believe you said the first edition cost $1200.
