Upon further reflection, I'm going to take this theory a step further: the "normal mode" is pull-twice-to-fire, and the "binary mode" is normal. Still fits the definition, since you're firing 1:2 or 2:1, but not 1:1.

Well said erwos.

I wonder if this will ever be available in Maryland, and if so, will it require the HQL?

EDIT: actually, more research involved. It does not fit the definition of rifle or handgun used in CL, but it does meet the definition of handgun in PS. Need to see if the SBR exemption would apply or not.

Best guess I saw was semi being fired from release only so it does not meet the definition of a rifle firing on the pull of the trigger. Then an additional binary mode which fires on pull and release. So it exists in the firearm category.

It is. That is what the ATF has on its website as to how a barrel's length is measured.

As a FFL and SOT holder, I would consider this an SBR unless I had documentation from the ATF otherwise. A rifle subject to the NFA has a barrel of less than 16 inches in length. The ATF procedure for measuring barrel length is to measure from the closed bolt (or breech-face) to the furthermost end of the barrel or permanently attached muzzle device. Unless the ATF says otherwise, having the barrel permanently attached to the receiver doesn't change things based upon their procedure.

One could also argue that it does indeed fire only one round per pull of the trigger. Their defn doesn't specify pull/release, just pull. One pull, one round, could be ATF's basis that it's a rifle.
