Firestorm Crank A short explanation
Posted 28 September 2008 - 08:30 PM
It works by using rotating cams which push a small bar, which in turn pushes the trigger. The rod and cams are rotated by a small handle which is turned in a circle, in the same motion you would use to real a fishing pole. Every full rotation equates to four trigger pulls.
Here is a short demonstration on a mechanical gun.
It is also possible to use on electronic guns, but it is much less appealing. It makes it difficult to rapid fire and keep the gun stable at the same time.
It is legal in most states except for California. A real firearm with this device installed is still considered semi automatic. Check your local field for their policy on such devices.

stock e-bolted 98
I seen this when it 1st came out and thought hm, I wonder how well it would work with my e-bolt
I've had it way before the "Firestorm" version came out. Mine was intended for a Ruger 10/22, the've been around for quite some time. Much cheaper than the "paintball equivilent". Basically, the paintball version was just repackaged and costs $20 more.

That was my fault, I used the wrong trigger bar. I had it at a bad angle too. I was trying to get max speed, so I set everything a little to close. I could get even faster if I didn't have to hold the camera. Normally it shoots the second you start cranking.
You can get 10-15 BPS with the crank, on any gun. One turn is four shots. No response trigger to mess with, no E-grip or electronics. And for $20 it was a good deal.

that wouldn't be the cranks fault, that'd be the gun.

Also the Crank can be used on a Real Gun, hence the reason why its Illegal in California.
True. The only problem I could see would be certain guns with unusually shaped triggers, like a "wave" or "scythe" style trigger. If a trigger guard has an inward angle or isn't flat, it might be a little difficult to secure. But generally it works on almost everything.
