For now,,,,,,,,,,

Give it sometime, the ATF will eventually classify it as a destructive devise and you'll have to buy a stamp fer it. They have for everything else that was like it in the past.

I don't even own an AR15 anymore and I want one for the future. It'd be like going back to the early 80's and buying up a few auto sears. Imagine if they do ban them-- it'd be worth a fortune. They'd have to be serial numbered and then put on a registry. Can you say 500% value increase?!

The "approval" on last one of these bump devices got rescinded by ATF and everybody that bought one had to turn it in or sign an affidavit saying they destroyed it.

Wow that's unfortunate. How similiar was that concept stock compared to this one? Being that it in no way alters the factory trigger, the ATF supplied a letter stating it's approval without restriction (available on their website and included with every stock).

The i-net rumours about this stock, is it was originally made to help folks with various handicaps be able to pull the triigger. So who knows what will happen, if anything. Worst case, you end up with an illegal item, best case, you pay $350 for some bumpfire fun.

Here's where I read about it. Read the article under the video. The inventor seems pretty confident, but I dunno...

Great Article Dan,

They did mention that the "Akins Accelerator" submitted an earlier prototype that wasn't as reliable as their final product. So when the ATF later tested their consumer version they differed enough for them to have reason to restrict it. Slide Fire seems to have submitted their intitial prototype along with their final product with approval. But nothing is ever for certain when tampering with anything close to select fire.

Thanks, got it from a fellow shooter. I don't see it in my future anyway, as it seems incompatible with the ACR and carbine ARs, and it's not very "sexy" for a stock kit... :D
