    Howdy All,

    I am contemplating building a Form 1 AoW, in the form of a briefcase gun. At the moment, this is only an idea, and I am considering using a Zip22 or a AR pistol platform set inside a Pelican Case, fireing using an electronic actuator.

    Are there any laws against using an actuator to pull the trigger? You could seemingly have a continuous rate of fire using an actuator, would i need to make it fire once with every push of a button? Would a higher rate of fire using an actuator to pull the trigger somehow be classified as a machine gun?

    Has anyone on here ever built a Form 1 AoW? Please share any experience or photos!

    The Zip 22 has abysmal reliability unless you turned it’s ejection port upside down to stop FTE jams.

    Electronic firing is a good way to get a felony, make a mechanical linkage and call it a day.

    A company already tried to do something like that and [ATF said no](https://www.guns.com/news/2017/09/20/remember-the-auto-glove-electric-trigger-finger-atf-says-nope) and ruled it was a machine gun.

    Also, you’re a retard for even considering the Zip gun. It’s widely considered to be one of the worst, least reliable guns to ever have existed.

    Provides precedent for the legality of an electronic trigger. If yours would pass the same muster, who can say. Setting it up like a paintball gun, or with those electronics, would probably be a machine gun as they are not semi auto in the same sense as a firearm.

    The normal method for this is a physical linkage, and it seems to work fairly well.
