Call Apex ASAP!

A friendly tip, don't post on the internet that a gun has gone full auto, ATF has been known to watch the message boards, people have been prosecuted for this, even though it wasn't intentional. The NRA has mentioned the prosecutions in the American Rifleman.

This is also why down is the preferred direction to point a firearm during loads and unloads. Now three bullets have landed somewhere.

This might not be practical all the time though, like in an apartment.

Sounds to me like you opened up the shepherds loop too much.

I don't see how this could happen. The striker safety plunger should prevent any type of auto fire or repeated slam fires. Almost infallibly, the trigger has to be pulled back to allow the gun to fire.

Only thing I can think of is how detailed of a clean you did and did you somehow jam the striker safety plunger.

Or, this is a troll posting.

Or removed the FP block like the latest video circling the internet of the DQ. Shooter did his own trigger job and purposely removed the firing pin block.

Oz, you just don't understand that ATF loves people like you. It's what some of them live for and you just confirmed that you have a known unregistered machine pistol.

Clearly any suggestions will be ignored but I'll waste my time anyway. You need to contact the people involved, S&W or Apex, and get this taken care of TODAY. Just possessing the parts is a violation even if they aren't installed. But ATF has been known to confiscate the firearm and reinstall the parts to confirm that it's an illegal and unregistered full auto.

I`m done with this guy, he`s obviously an idiot looking for trouble... and he`ll surely find it. You just can`t fix stupid.
