The S333 Volleyfire from Standard Manufacturing, the company bringing us the DP-12 Double Barrel Pump Shotgun, fires two shots with each pull of the trigger. That’s a handy feature for a gun chambered in the anemic .25 ACP. Of course, as far as I understand it, that makes this 6-barrel pepperbox a machine gun in the eyes of the .gov. Standard says otherwise…
The Feds define a “machine gun” as:
[A]ny weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manually reloading, by a single function of the trigger.
Standard said that because it’s two rounds at the same time rather than sequentially, it isn’t a machine gun. I suppose I’ve never thought of that, and am happy to sit back and wait to see how things progress with the S-333.
