No, it's not illegal, because your finger still has to pull the trigger for every shot. The rubber band just brings the trigger into the forward position, ready to fire, more rapidly than would otherwise occur. It's not like a DIAS, where you can pull the trigger once, hold it down, and fire multiple (illegal) shots.

The registered string was deemed Class 3 because it was attached to the bolt handle, and thus it pulled the trigger itself every time the bolt closed.

Can someone else elaborate more why a shoe-string is banned?



I can never follow the ATF's logic...


ETA: Since it's legal, I'm going to try it today, sounds like a good idea...

Because the shoestring method defeats the sear, thus making a runaway machine gun. The rubber band method merely serves as a big-ass trigger return spring.

I believe the shoestring was banned because one end was attached to the operating system of the rifle and the other to the trigger. Therefore your finger was not pulling the trigger for each round.
one pull+one round=ok

Riiiight...

Ban rubber bands now! Do it for the children!

If it saves EVEN JUST ONE LIFE it will have been worth it!

Blood will run in the streets if we don't BAN RUBBER BANDS NOW!

You can't hunt with rubber bands, the deer would just "blow-up"!

I'll bet a lot of people here will be suprised to learn that a Class 3 weapon does not exist.

Your finger's going to wear out after three pulls, however.
