    Is it actually legal?

    If you spend the time to prefect your technique, bump fire is more efficient. All this is, is a spring assist bump fire. These spring loaded trigger assist things have been around since the early 90's. The first ones were called "Hellfire".

    Information note
    Douglas Ridge Rifle Club has banned Bump and Burst type aids.
    Of course, if you have a place to rock n roll, more power to you.
    If you spend the time to perfect your sight alignment and picture, one round will do the job.

    I have a bumpfire stock on my Saiga 12. (The slidefire SSAK47) It is fun but utterly worthless.

    I clicked on this thinking I'd get to watch a scantily clad babe shooting an evil black rifle. But I came away thinking this will surely give help to the anti-gunners in their argument that AR's are, or can readily be made into "assault weapons".

    I had one of these for years and recently sold it in favor of the Slide Fire stock. These are fun for a while but they cannot be fired from the shoulder as a buffeting motion of the gun is required for bump fire. That means you must "John Wayne it" from the hip. My first time out with the slide fire I ripped out 20 rounds with no problem.

    The Slide fire stock is quite a bit more money but allows the gun to buffet in the shoulder stock, thereby enabling shouldered bump fire. One nice thing about the Slide Fire is that they appear to be a normal stock and can be locked in the fixed position for normal function. With the Slide Fire you rest your trigger finger on a shelf and pull the gun forward to fire. Your arm acts as the spring so getting the force right is critical. A gun equipped with a short reset trigger or with a lighter spring will be easier to bump fire.

    This is me entertaining myself at a gravel pit (note uncontrolled grinning)

    I have a Geissele super 3 gun trigger on my Noveske. It's so light and fast to reset that it sounds full auto.
    I watched a guy shoot 12 rounds in 1.9 seconds with one and another shoot a 40 round mag dry in 6.7 seconds.
    I love that trigger, it's light though and will double tap on you if you're not careful.

    It is dependent on how the trigger is applied. If you are shooting from the bench you are most likely going the feather the trigger, if you are not holding the rifle tight to your shoulder you can easily bump fire. If however you are using the trigger as designed and fully and quickly pulling the trigger as you would in combat or three gun then you will not bump. Since I am using mine on my target rifle I put the three pound spring in the drawer in favor of the 4-1/2.

    That's correct! If you are using the 3 gun trigger for 3 gun comp then you want speed and don't fully reset, this could bump fire but on the bench or shooting normal then it is just the lightest most crisp trigger you have ever felt with no danger of a bumpfire. I put the 3lb spring in mine too.
