    Doesn't sound like he's making individual trigger pulls either in the description or by the rate of fire.
    The trigger is not pulling itself , something else is .
    The only thing close is the finger .

    Have you seen my diary on the subject ?

    •  My point is the gun is pulling its own trigger. (0+ / 0-)

      If the finger is held still relative to the stationary part of the system, the stock, then the gun's motion pulls the trigger.

      And in the video there is clearly a trigger finger rest which is used for holding the finger stationary relative to the stationary part of the stock.

      The demonstrator says as much:

      " You have to hold it against your shoulder like this with your finger right on there really stiffly..". He's referring to the trigger finger rest, he's focusing on it in the video at some point.

      The trigger pulls itself against a finger which is for all practical purposes rigidly attached to the stock. You could substitute a piece of plastic for the finger and it would still work.

      That's the point I am making, the shooter is not making one trigger pull per shot. He couldn't be, he couldn't move the finger that fast. It's one motion, multiple shots.

      I still think the ATF screwed up.

      I'd still like to have one if somebody would foot my ammo bill, lol. And buy me a new barrel from time to time.

      Nice talking to you.

      Oh, and I looked at the diary for a second and am headed back there now.

      Moderation in most things.

        then the gun's motion pulls the trigger.
        The round fires , the gun moves back , the finger moves away from the trigger release point , the left arm then moves the gun forward , the finger moves toward the trigger release point . The gun does not move forward under its own power . The human moves the gun forward , that forward motion is what causes the interaction between the finger and trigger .
