AutoGlove Simulated Full-Automatic Rates of Fire

If you thought the firearms industry was lacking innovation, boy do I have the product for you! The AutoGlove is a battery powered, electric trigger pull assist device that you strap to your hand. The AutoGlove claims to allow semi-auto firearms of all types to achieve a rate of fire of 600-1000 rounds per minute.

The AutoGlove website clearly takes great care to explain that because the AutoGlove does not attach to the firearm and instead attaches to the shooter that the AutoGlove is 100% legal. I do not disagree, but I would like to see an ATF opinion letter.

The AutoGlove appears to be an electric motor strapped to a glove that when you press the switch, allows the motor to pull the trigger for you. Quickly. The AutoGlove claims to work with almost all types of semi-automatic firearms without modification to the firearm, but the FAQ and the video say that for optimal results your gun should have a 3.5 pound or lighter trigger pull. The AutoGlove comes in various colors and glove styles, and can be programmed for “single shot, double tap, 3-round burst, or mag dump”.

The AutoGlove appears to be yet another way to “simulate” full-auto fire, like the popular bump fire stocks and the old school bump fire triggers. It will be interesting to see if the current market is ready for this device at the $350 price point, but if you order one of the first 500 units you do get it $50 cheaper.

Phil Note: The company CEO advised me this past Friday the first run of customer orders will be shipping in late August or early September. We hope to test one in that September time line after customer orders are filled.

        The only “adventure” the users of this product will find is an eventual run-in with the ATF when they confiscate the units this company sold.

        This is an NFA item, pure and simple. And my money is on it being ruled that way.

        Better keep one’s name off their customer list. Because it will be followed up on.

      Can’t they just rubberize the bit that sticks out and legally sell it?

  • Nicholas C

    On a serious note, how is this remotely legal? It is basically an electric drill with an oscillating bit. AFAIK using an electric drill on a semi auto gun to simulate full auto is illegal by the ATF.

    Simulate full auto like the binary triggers and bump fire stocks are legal because your finger in manually manipulating the trigger. One trigger manipulation = one shot. Doing so quickly does not make it illegal.

    But using an electric motor? Very illegal.

    • MrBrassporkchop

      Yeah I don’t see it standing up to scrutiny very long. It’s way too electronic triggery.

    • Jason Culligan

      This is also great ammunition for the EU to push for a full ban on semi-automatic weapons.

      • wetcorps

        Sadly they didn’t wait for this 🙂

      • Ben Pottinger

        Your confused if you think anti-gunners need any “excuses” to push for bans. Look at the past 40+ years of laws in the USA, no amount of “bargaining” will *ever* work with anti-gunners. They don’t want “common sense laws” they want them completely gone, banned, no compromise.

        They have zero “skin in the game” since 99.999% of antigunners don’t and won’t own any firearms, so they don’t care how much a new law inconveniences the gun community because it doesn’t effect them in any way. So each time the new harps about some new shooting the anti gun people will suggest more gun control because why not? Obviously there isn’t enough already or this most recent news item wouldn’t have happened. And each time something new happens they will run right back to the same conclusion.

        And if you think it stops after they have banned 99% of civilian owned guns you’d be wrong. There are plenty of examples in the EU of them suggesting *even more* control well past the point in which they are essentially verboten!

        • jcitizen

          I think you’d be amazed how many anti-gunners own guns. The hypocrisy of Libtard thinking knows no bounds. It amount to ‘do as I say, and not as I do’.

    • J.T.

      Ya. They are trying to argue that it would be legal because the motor is attached to the shooter and not the gun, but I’m not going to touch one with a 20 foot pole without an ATF approval letter.

      • XT6Wagon

        This modern trend of seeing how far one can push the ATF before they put you in a place where many men want to touch you with their pole… Its not going to end well for someone. They will find something that the ATF can’t write conflicting letters about. Something that manufacturer won’t sign the “stop doing this or its prosecution time” agreement with the ATF. Something so stupid that you could get 12 NRA members to put you away.

        This product might just be that example.

      • Swarf

        The BATF could send the letter to me via Hogwarts owl etched on gold leaf and I still wouldn’t want one of these oscillating matsurbation toys.

    • PK

      It requires pressure backward from the finger. If the pressure isn’t applied, it doesn’t pull the trigger. It does count, but what a gray area…

      • Nicholas C

        However it is not manually operated. The hand crank is legal since you have to continually manipulate it to pull the trigger.

        That is not the case here. Again how is this different from an electric drill?

        • PK

          It seems to be different because it would pass the stick/tie-down test. You can’t find a position where a stick would keep the gun firing, nor can you find a spot where tying string just right on the trigger/device keeps it going.

          • int19h

            I don’t get it. Are you saying that e.g. a capacitive touch button could be a legal full auto trigger, because it would also pass the stick/tie-down test?

      • Tom Currie

        Look at the video again — particularly the very clear sequence starting at the 30 second mark. This is not relying on vibrating the shooter’s trigger finger – the shooter simply holds the device inside the trigger guard and turns on the electric motor. Absolutely no doubt that it violates all the current ATF rules about applying a motor to a semiauto to operate the trigger.

        • Gregory Markle

          The fact that the finger with the trigger device on it is not doing the physical actuation will be it’s downfall. The finger pressing the button to activate the motor is the de facto “trigger finger” and the button becomes the trigger…the button isn’t being cycled therefore it is a machinegun.

          • Ben Pottinger

            Boom, that’s 100% dead on. There are already letters floating around where the ATF says almost exactly the same thing, that the button becomes the “new” trigger, and because it’s being held down to repeatedly fire more then one round per press it’s a MG.

            Don’t waste your money, it’s going to be gone in 6-12 months.

    • Klaus

      Electric or not it still only fires one shot with one pull of the trigger so it’s semiauto according to ATF,no?Dont they still make hand crank versions you mount on the trigger guard to simulate full auto?

      • jeff

        The atf has long held that if you attach an electric motor to a semi auto weapon to pull the trigger, the trigger on the drill or whatever the motor is attached to is the new trigger, thus making it a machine gun because it can fire more than one round per pull of the trigger

        • iksnilol

          Yeah, but this isn’t attached to the gun. Which might be saving it… But I wouldn’t mess with it.

          • jeff

            yea, knowing the atf, it is probably going to be classified as a machine gun

      • XT6Wagon

        any jerk off the street can own a classic hand cranked Gatling gun as long as its not a destructive device caliber. You can not however own a modern one as those are “fired” by an electric motor.

        just as its not legal to own a gun that will malfunction so that it won’t stop firing.

    • bull

      i wonder how ATF would judge a TENS machine applied so your trigger finger twitches…

    • iksnilol

      I dunno, I mean, it isn’t attached to the gun.

    • noob

      so I guess the ATF says that a precision shooting robot platform is only okay with a bolt action that has no capacity to be remotely commanded to reload https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3f091eec169444c12e3c2da83de2810410834acaa44e769c1e51d615bc518791.jpg ?

      • Ben Pottinger

        Pretty much yes. You could build something like that with a semi auto but if they want to come after you all they need to do is point out how easy it is to make it “full auto” (if your remote gun is accessible from a windows PC you could use autohotkey to repeat a key press and go full auto that easily).

  • Matt_from_Colorado

    What could possibly go wrong?

  • Saint Stephen the Obvious

    Sweet cheese and cracker – Lord please send an angel to teach those with pistols how to hold the gun and not shoot rounds into the next county where my parish is at – it sounds like rain hitting the metal roof of the rectory.

    Amen

  • st381183

    On TTAG this story was listed as sponsored content so I hope you received some money for putting this goofy thing on TFB. A binary trigger is more effective and easier to control than this runaway fire travesty of an invention.

  • Gun-Toting Racist

    They are going about this all wrong. They need this concept with electricity. Shock the heck out of your trigger finger and make it flex at varying rates like those abdominizer things or whatever they used to sell.

    • bull

      TENS machine

  • El BAnDit0
  • XT6Wagon

    lets see 0 pulls of the trigger, many rounds fired. Yah thats going to not piss off anyone at the ATF.

    • noob

      30 rounds / 0 trigger pulls = oooohhhssshiiiiiiii

    • Tuulos

      So not a machinegun by definition then. Machinegun = plenty of bullets with a single pull of the trigger. Mysterious marital aid device = plenty of bullets with no pull of the trigger.

  • CTM_95
  • Squirrel

    Illegal in 3….2…

  • Their smirking assertion that it doesn’t really count because it’s not attached to the gun sounds like the kind of Kindergarten Logic you get from a five year old wannabe rules lawyer who thinks a smugly delivered “Well you never said I couldn’t eat all the ice cream at once” is going to keep him from getting in trouble.

            Indeed.

            They’ve even got those things that stimulate via high frequent noise and light instead of vibrations.

            Like, it’s literally sensations I can’t even imagine.

  • Tom Currie

    As the author mentions “The AutoGlove website clearly takes great care to explain that because
    the AutoGlove does not attach to the firearm and instead attaches to the
    shooter that the AutoGlove is 100% legal. I do not disagree, but I
    would like to see an ATF opinion letter.”

    I have to agree – this looks like something that ATF would “approve” then a month later come back and say that once you use it you have constructively created a Class III machine gun.

    I wondered if they will actually sell any of this ridiculous toy, then I considered all the you-tubers out there and realized that they have a significant market just waiting to drop a pile of cash on the single stupidest invention of the year (possibly of the decade).

  • Swarf

    This definitely looks like something a guy who wears a drop leg holster and a boonie hat on his “shooting adventures” would dig.

  • Repoman3737

    So let me get this straight I put on a glove with a big clunky electric motor zip tied to my trigger finger so my right hand will be useless. Try to reholster gun and electric motor cycles trigger and I N.D. a round. Can’t reach in pocket,can’t manipulate gun,can’t eject mag, can’t clear malfunction. Plus side trigger finger will be all jacked up from lifting the 1 pound motor attached to it. Do they still have the Darwin awards anymore? I nominate this and the person who thought it up. What a dushnozzle…

  • Psylant

    …couldn’t the same thing be accomplished by taping an auto airsoft motor to your hand and having the actuator thump against the trigger, for about- what, $30?
