Thread: AR15 Bumping?

    I see how to do it, I just don't understand how it'd work. I'd like to try the rubber band trick on my CX4, but I'm not quite sure how. Does your finger have to move with the trigger?

    Pascal,
    Finger stays stationary. Gun is pushed forward, pressing finger/thumb against trigger. Gun fires. Recoil drives gun back, releasing trigger. Since the shooter still pushing forward, the cycle repeats.

    Gotcha...as soon as I scrounge up some more gun money, I'll buy a bunch of rounds & try it out.

    The BATFE FTB defines bump firing to mean: Rapid manual trigger manipulation to simulate automatic fire. The rubber band does not cause the gun to function in the manner show in my video, however it does make normal bump firing easier to accomplish. The only thing that has ever broke due to accessive "bump firing" on my AR15 was the hammer and trigger pins.

    Several people have speculated that installing a rubber band on an AR15 is considered to be the same as installing a shoe string on a Mini-14. This couldn't be further from the truth. If you look at the picture of the shoestring method, the BATFE consider the key ring located behind the trigger guard a "trigger".

    By pulling the key ring to the rear, the tension of the string constricts the guns trigger. After the gun fires, the string tension is released due to the bolt/charging handle moving rearward. The guns trigger is now able to reset. As long as the shooter keeps the tension on the key ring, the bolt/charging handle will move forward, chambering another round while taking up the slack of the string, thus constricting the guns trigger until the gun is fired again. This allows a mini 14 shoot more than one shot, by a single function of the "Key Ring" (trigger). This only works with firearms who's charging handles are attached to the bolts.

    Unfortunately I have not done much public bump firing due to the current US President, and current price of ammo.

    Bump fireing is simply a collosal waste of ones money on ammunition. The AR platform is not a weapon that full auto fire has ever proven to be successful, especially considering collateral dammage and depletion of perfectly good ammunition.

    If you need to break contact then you want an M240 or M249 gunner laying down suppressive fire, not your M4/AR's. My opinion is that there are only really four types of fire with a carbine rifle.

    1. Slow aimed fire.

    2. Controlled pairs.

    3. Double Taps.

    4. Hammers.

    Bump fireing has no tactical application in the real world of warfare. Civillians wasting their ammunition on such fire is just more fodder for something to lauph at. Would you ever "bump fire" your carbine in a self defesnse or offensive situation ?
