Legal Simulation

As of today, it’s legal. Tomorrow, who can say?


Simulated Full Auto AR-15

No Permit, No Class III Required

The concept of bump fire has been around a long time. Most semi-auto rifles and shotguns can be held loosely against the shoulder, with the trigger finger held stiffly and the trigger hand hardly touching the stock, and the off hand pulling the fore end firmly forward. Pull your trigger hand back just a bit and the gun goes off, and the combination of continued forward pull and the recoil impulse makes it fire again. Bam bam bam bam. Simulated full auto fire. The problem is that you can’t hit diddly do this way. Certainly not anything further than 50 feet away. Well, it seems that not only has a retired military fellow figured out a solution, he’s brought the product to market with full ATF approval.

The ATF defines a machine gun - I’m paraphrasing here, m’kay? - as a firearm with some kind of mechanical device or accessory that causes the next shot to fire without any input from the shooter. That’s why that famous piece of string for the M1 was classified as a machine gun, and it’s also why those trigger crank units are not classified as machine guns. For the same reason manually cranked Gatling Guns are legal, but if you hook up and electric motor to the crank you are in a huge world of legal hurt.

If the ATF wants to now come and ban the Slide Fire, they basically have to modify the definition of a machinegun. The Slide Fire is simply a high quality 33% glass nylon AR stock with no moving parts, period.

The inventor of the Slide Fire, Jeremiah Cottle, a US Air Force veteran of three conflicts, took the bump fire concept and eliminated all of the variables that makes bump firing impractical. The result is a product that bump fires perfectly, is completely controllable, every time, with no special training. There are no permanent modifications to the gun and installation of the Slide Fire does not impair function of the rifle at all.

“The Slide Fire simply allows you to shoot as fast as you want to,” explains Mr. Cottle. “ You can shoot one round, 2 rounds, 3 rounds, 15 rounds or a full magazine. It isn’t governed by a mechanical auto-sear. There are no moving parts in the Slide Fire and no springs. You hold your finger on the trigger rest and push forward to fire the gun. It is not automatic. Nothing is automatic. You actively fire every round, and if you stop pushing forward or you take your finger off the trigger the gun stops firing. It just helps you fire the gun in semi-automatic very fast. You don’t need an auto-sear. You can fire the gun yourself as fast as you want. ”

Unlike certain other AR-15 devices that tend to wear out (the little bit of bent metal device that’s oh so illegal), the Slide Fire is made of mil-grade plastic and a bit of aluminum. No moving parts means nothing to wear out; testing has been done for thousands and thousands of rounds with no wear at all.

Follow this link for more details, a bit of legal analysis, and a very shooty bit of video. Yes, the device works. Very well indeed. Had this been my company, I would not have made the video showing some guy waggling the gun all over the place, “spraying bullets from the hip”. I would have shown him sending 20 downrange on target.

I would suggest that if you want to play with one of these, that you get yourself a superb progressive reloading press and start buying powder in the 8lb cans. So sweet!!!

And here’s the very nicest part: it’s completely legal:

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
