    Meh, you can do the same thing with a stiff trigger finger but this does make it easier. You still have to let the gun jump around, I would prefer a binary trigger. All that said, the best thing about this item is that there are mount to be 3d printer files for a comparable device eventually. It is really going to get to the point that restricting full autos is useless, even more so than it is now. To me the binary trigger is the real game changer, just wait for them to come down in price and increase in quality.

    I would have liked to have seen this come to market actually. The makers were threatened by the owners of the slidefire system for patten infringment I believe...I could be wrong:

    That certainly looks like patent infringement to me. Basically, the Slidefire stock makes the grip move back and forth, so making just the grip move back and forth seems like the same thing to me. Slidefire has been very aggressive defending their patent. That is just my opinion.

    It seems that unless there is some sort of redesign of any bumpfire type items that the SlideFire patent, and their subsequent threat of suing for patent infringement, is going to be tough to get around unless someone has deep enough pockets to take it to court. The problem is that most developers are smaller businesses that don't want to tie up tens of thousands of dollars to get a court to say that the design is substantially different than the patented one. Even if they get that verdict from the court, they have only spent money to get approval and haven't made a dime.

    I would think that the grip alone *might* be have a valid argument that it is substantially different from the slidefire stocks. However, personally I wouldn't tie my money up in a product that is going to cost lots of money just to have a court say it's okay and then still face the risk of federal or majority state legislation that would outlaw/regulate it.

    That's too bad, because I really like that JT Grip. I think it would have sold really well.

    I always liked designers that come up with something a little different. I wish him luck in his future developments.
