I've been checking these out and I'm intrigued. Has anyone ever used one?

Like most of these devices (other than the "crank and cam" type), all this product does is separate you from your money. What you get is a clamp on spring loaded doo-dad and instructions on how to bumpfire. Bumpfire how-tos and videos are all over the internet for free. Google "bumpfire".

Well as long as the point is to convert money to ammo to noise they are great. Dont plan on hitting the broad side of a oil tanker with them. They are not bump fires as the weapon stays sort of stable and the trigger mech moves. Just a toy really.

the only thing i can find for "tac trigger system" is spring loaded bump firing trigger assists, which are all junk. can you please refer us to what you are talking about?

There are several variants of those spring loaded bump firing trigger dillys that came out in the late 80s and early 90s best I can tell. From all reviews I've read, nobody could ever get any of them to work like the promotional video you see around the tubes. I wouldn't waste money on one.

I assumed he was talking about those hand crank jobs that work with a cam activating the trigger at a very high rate. Seen them on 10/22s, shotguns, and an AK but never saw them work worth a dam.

the cranks work fine if you set them up correctly and tinker with them:


the only other trigger system i know of is one that uses a lever system to smooth out a crappy trigger with a long pull into one with short crisp pull, but it dodnt work for crap.

Oh yeah they will fire but hitting anything is pretty chancy. That 360 deg motion just moves the barrel too much.

The video for it is #4. Seems pretty cool.

I installed way to many of these devices in the late 80's and early 90's for people in Texas who bought them for their semi auto rifles. While I was able to get them to work fairly reliably. Acccuracy seemed pretty poor.IMHO It did empty a 30 round AR15 mag quickly when it worked.

Having said that. I agree with SW that they are junk. I spent way to must time readjusting them for people who bought them.

But feel free to buy one and reach your own conclusions.

Since you've used one, how does it work. Is it just a glorified bump fire?

actually off a bipod it was remarkably accurate. like any other rapid fire weapon, it wasnt as accurate as slow, aimed fire but it shot as good as any other full auto ive shot.

why all the hate?

Hate? Just a device Ive never seen serve any use. Perhaps those Ive seen were not done properly but somehow I gotta think that thing is temperamental as all hell.

Besides it seems the device the OP was talking about is that bump fire pos. Heh bump fire now there's a good way to convert money into noise.
But hey its their money.

the BMF cranks are specifically designed for use only on rimfires. when someone tries to use it on a centerfire i think you would no doubt see probelms. when used on a proper firearm, and corectly set up they work remarkably well. mine was a range toy for the most part. i did see action on a couple coyote hunts, as a pickup gun for the running shots for the animals that got missed by the guys with scoped rifles. at that it did very well. you could walk in the rounds and get good hits before the animals got away.

Come to think of it I haven't seen any but 10/22s in a long while, but back in the seventies people were using them on center fires even saw a guy with one adapted to a semi shotgun. Not a new idea.
