I got a Prepper Gun Shop sale email offer today and they have Echo triggers on sale, but list Iowa as one of the restricted states along with the usual subjects.

Has this always been the case?

Supposedly IA has a law that items designed to increase rate of fire can't be sold in the state. Never bothered to look into it but Cabelas wouldn't sell trigger cranks to IA buyers when they had them either.

I've seen crank fired 10/22 gatling gun kits and bumpstocks in gun stores though so enforcement is spotty at most.

Iowa Code 724.29.
Been on the books for years...even decades. I remember the hearings in, I think, the late eighties.
Was originally for BMF crank activators and similar products. Not sure if there us any case law or official interpretations regarding its application to binary triggers.

Thanks for the explanation.

But technically, if you assemble a firearm from a stripped receiver with a binary trigger then that is the original trigger that the gun was manufactured with.

As I understand it, the trigger accessories are legal to have but not legal to sell. So if I have one and you want to buy it, we have to drive to another state to complete the sale.

I just checked the Brownells web site and they have them and it doesn't show you can't buy them in Iowa they list states you can't buy them .

I bought an echo trigger when they first came out. Had no problem. Shipped right to my door. But that was before the Las Vegas shooting and all the hype made up by the media and the nra not doing anything to defend them.
