I was trying to figure that out my self. I think it would only work on say an AK style bolt carrier.

Ehhh, a minor technicality.

I wonder if it would work with an M1A?

The rifle is moot, since as worded the shoestring is the machinegun.

Cool! I had no idea that I had machine guns when i was an infant! Heck, I take two machine guns into work every day and had no idea! Its amazing that no one has gotten hurt by my negligence!

what I want to see is a class 3 manufacturer register a shoestring as a post sample just to do it

I can't beleive Wall mart has been selling these shoestrings with out a ATF class 3 tax stamp!

Someone has to warn them!

and we need to organize a shoestring 'buy back program" right away!

I tried bump firing an AK ONCE. I did not realize that my thumb was impinging on the charging handle's route rearward.

I would never tie one of my fingers to one of those infernal machines!

+1, I'd laugh my ass off.

Then again, it would give the ATF a little more credibility in their ruling, wouldn't it?

I'm not worried....All my shoes have velcro.

yes, but you might be be able to sue the ATF charging that they selectively enforce laws as anyone with a pair of shoes and a semi auto firearm with a reciprocating charging handle is in violation of the NFA and 922o, therefore since they dont enforce that part of the law, then the rest must be given up.

Agreed. Frankly, I'm burned out on the intellectual-level of posters shouting "dupe," like some idiot frat party. I don't spend 24 hours a day on here (though I don't log-off the site).

I haven't seen it before and liked reading it. Thanks, LTCetme.

Ok, so the ATF has made its decision, but could this really work? I'm no engineer and I'm not even that knowledgable about the details of how my semiauto rifles work, but it just doesn't seem like this would work.

If i tie a string to the bolt handle of a rifle (say an AK semiauto) and attach it to my finger and pull the trigger, then the bolt would snap back applying pressure when the bolt is all the way back, but no pressure when the bolt moves forward which is when there would need to be pressure on the finger to press the trigger again, no?

What don't I understand about this situation?

Let me see if I can find the pic.
Shoestring with a metal stamp on it w/serial number attached to Mini 14.
ETA: found it

DU or the ATF?

The reason that it is illegal is that it fires more than one shot PER MOTION OF THE FINGER.

That is why you are allowed to use a hand crank to simulate full auto... you are doing a motion that causes each trigger pull... but if you attach a cordless drill to it you are in violation. That's because you can pull the trigger on the drill once and cause multiple shots.

I'm going to cache a few dozen shoestrings in PVC right now. Will cosmolene work to keep them from rotting?
