Sunday Ugly Gun




Designed to circumvent then-existing U.S. laws defining a machine gun, the Sputter Gun was a modification of the British Sten Submachine Gun. Lacking a trigger, the Sputter Gun was designed to, upon release of the bolt, fire multiple rounds until all ammunition was expended. The Sputter Gun was, however, reclassified as a machine gun by the ATF. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sputter_Gun)

That bicep clamp vertical grip combo might be an interesting option on a semi auto shotgun though.

Um, the ATF didn't think these were MGs by their own definitions? Hell, they've ruled that an SKS with a inverted firing pin that makes it slam-fire until empty was a MG, that doesn't sound any different than what this Sputter gun does. Altho now that I stop and think, the ATF seldom does anything that makes sense anymore. This does prove what I've been saying, that any machinist with the parts and metal stock can make a working machine gun, and if he can keep his own yap shut, nobody else would ever know he has it!

Son, the ATF doesn't do ANYTHING that makes sense anymore. I understand that they're trying to uphold the law as best they can, but there's a limit to sanity.
