Looks like a $.02 rubber band will do just as good if you're into wasting a bunch of ammo!
Just for those who Might not know, Dont get caught using a Rubber band.
exactly, i believe in the shoelace case its because the trigger was no longer being actuated for each shot , hence "machinegun".Rubber bands are OK, it's shoelaces that get you 10 years @ Club Fed.
So does that make people who own shoes and SA rifles with charging handles felons for constructive intent? :bleh:An old ww2 vet told me they did the shoelace thing in the Pacific on their garands. I remember thinking all that for eight rounds and to hear a ping!
oh ive had this conversation with them on multiple occasions....Yep, and the rubber bands are mentioned in addition to several ATF approved devices like the Hellfire, they were never considered MGs. What the letter says is illegal is any modification that makes the gun fire more than once for each operation of the trigger. The shoelace becomes a "conversion device" because the loop/ring on the end of the string you pull to initiate firing becomes the trigger by it's function. Same with those "crankfire" things that turn a cam to pull the trigger rapidly. Hand crank it is a "manually operated repeater" just like a hand crank Gatling. Remove the crank and add a battery power drill or screwdriver to turn it, the switch on the drill is now the trigger, one push and multiple rounds. MG.
