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.
