Sure... But my question is more of a theoretical one. I think having the spring inside the stock to make it firable with even just one hand without needing to lock the stock in semi mode would make it even better. More optons and choices better than less... unless you really dont think mechanically it wouldnt work.

Also, i think its more natural and intuitive if you dont even have to try to apply forward pressure on the front grip. May even improve accuracy a bit since yr non trigger hand would only have to worry about controlling muzzle climb (as usual) instead of also having to apply a forward pressure.

Edit: kinda got my question answered. Someone told me that the atkin accelerator was banned due to having a spring. Guess will have to use rubber bands...

I'd like to see someone make a device that clamps on to a standard collapsible and does the same thing. Except for a ridiculously low price.

I have one on my AK74. I'am shooting cheap surplus ammo so cost isn't that bad. Only drawback is my club has a rule, no auto weapons fire. They say that includes my $400 Fostech bumfire stock on my semi-auto rifle.

Save the money for a tax stamp to SBR it or Suppress it. Either are more useful. To simulate full auto, that's just turning money into noise.

Mine works great, just can't afford the ammo now..... Works much better than bump firing, you have more control. I see them used for $200 well worth that.

Fostech bumfire stock

Just don't forget the haemorrhoid cream alongside the Hoppes and the gun oil.

Seriously, I get enough of a thrill (and work up enough of a bill) rapid-firing an SMLE. This full-auto stuff is all too much for me. *swoons, grasps at smelling salts.*

I have one that's never even been installed. Had plans for a 9mm that never happened. It really looks like a good time to me and if ammo becomes a little more affordable it may still happen.

You're right. Guns are pointless in the modern world.

I'm not a fan.
This is a attachment that allows a semi auto to operate in a full auto "STYLE" mode.
It is a legal way to a class 3 STYLE firearm.
They are cool and fun but I see them as a way around a law that at some point could be used by the anti crowd to further their agenda.
If you want a class 3 style weapon buy one.

That whoosh you may have heard was the joke passing over your head.

If you have the money to buy the stock and then feed it with ammo, and it is legal in your state, why not?

It's not my thing though. Now, if it would work with a .22 LR AR, perhaps ... maybe when .22 LR becomes available at decent prices.
