    I would like your opinion on this, whether this would work in general, and what would be the legality of it.

    It's somewhat inspired by the Tac-Con 3MR Trigger. Essentially it uses recoil energy to assist trigger reset. Though my design is more of an external addon.

    Unfortunately will probably get swept up in binary trigger and bump stock ban language.

    I don't see how it could be considered a binary trigger. It doesn't shoot second round when finger returns.

    Regarding bump stocks, it looks far from your normal bump stock. There's a HELL-Fire Gen 2 Snap On for AK47 which resembles more to a mini bumpstock, and it's somehow legal. My guess is due to the requirement of physically moving your finger. Unlike the normal bump stocks where you keep your finger stationary.

    Cure is worse than disease. Software > hardware.

    I realize it's not as practical or reliable, and I don't think I'll ever end up making one, even if it was legal. I designed it more out of curiosity than a need. Just wanted to see what other people think about it.

    I might have found a stupid simple alternative to this. Essentially a small piece of some solid material, or a spring, that you would put behind a hammer and it would rest against slide cover.

    Sorry, I don't really have an expert opinion on whether any of this work, or if it's legal, but I'll just say that dancing on the legal line of "is this a machine gun or not" sounds incredibly stupid, to me. Good luck.

    There is no hammer on a Glock. I think the OP is an AirSoft shooter.

    I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish. The Glock can't be fired until the slide is back in battery, at which point the trigger would also be reset unless the shooter's finger was holding it/slowing it down. Considering a Glock can cycle at 1,200x/min, I suspect the finger (and recoil control) will always be slower than the trigger reset. If I'm missing something, please let me know.

    The spring on the back of the firing pin is how the resetting triggers (Glockstore, Glock's own 17R, etc.) work. They do this only because there is no slide movement under dry fire to reset the trigger.
