Return of the Akins Accelerator - Ruger 10/22

I saw this on the Saiga-12 forum. Looks like my next purchase.

Very soon Fostech Outdoors will also be marketing the Springless AA2 (Akins Accelerator 2) stock which is a springless, isometric, redesign/retrofit of my old Akins Accelerator stocks for the .22 long rifle cartridge Ruger 10/22 rifle. Fostech will also be offering my perforated barrel shroud design as an accessory for the AA2. Look for that in the near future. I have been in discussions with Fostech trying to work out the possibility that former Akins Accelerator stock owners could send in their stocks to have them retrofitted to work isometrically for a small fee. Look for a limited amount of these version 2 AA's to be available in several weeks. More will be available in the future as they get retrofitted.

Is it like a slidefire for a 10/22? If so that sounds sweet.

I just got pricing. Maybe I'm not getting one.

The price for the everything needed is $629.00. That includes the $289.00 trigger from KIDD Triggers. There are 20 available.

Actually the Akins Accelerator bump fire stock for the Ruger 10/22 was marketed in the last of 2005 and in 2006, many years before the Slide Fire. I know because I invented it in 1996, received my U.S. patent for it in 2000, and marketed it. So to be correct it is the Slide Fire stock that is like an Akins Accelerator. Not the other way around.

These new AA2's (Akins Accelerator version 2) stocks are retro-fits of my former Akins Accelerator stocks that have been made to operate isometrically without using any springs. They work great. There is a limited amount of them available right now (less than 20). But Fostech Outdoors bought my existing inventory of about 600 and I am sending them to them and they will be retro-fitted very quickly. So very soon there will be plenty of them. Plus I am lending Fostech Outdoors my old molds so more can be made in the future.

The Fostech Outdoors bumpfire stocks are the only patented bumpfire stocks on the market (since I sold my patent to Fostech Outdoors). Some other manufacturers who don't even have a patent have been producing their bumpfire stocks for about a year without my permission and without doing a patent license agreement with me.

To ensure consistent operation, Fostech is installing a Kidd's trigger in them that has a very light trigger pull to ensure consistent operation. That is why they cost an additional $289.00 which is the cost of the Kidd's trigger to Fostech.
But you will make up that amount very quickly in shooting low cost .22 LR ammo.

Later on, Fostech Outdoors will be marketing as an accessory, my design for a perforated full length barrel shroud for the 10/22 AA2. This will make it look like a bit like a Russian PPSH or more correctly a Italian Beretta sub gun from WW2. That will enable the sights to not move with the barrel since the barrel will reciprocate within the stationary barrel shroud and the sights will be attached to the stationary shroud. Plus it will enable other types of sights to be used without any weight on the barrel and without impeding the reciprocation of the barrel. Good things coming out

For that price I'd just build my own. Yeesh.

Even at $629 it doesn't sound bad to me considering the alternative is a $7-8K (maybe more, I didn't check current pricing) or so transferrable full auto 10/22. While I never got to see one in person, the original Accelerator was quite the marvel to see in action in videos. Hopefully you'll keep inventing some more ingenuitive products for the community.

That is very steep. I think the max I would spend on this is like a couple of hundred dollars.

Thanks Bill, welcome to the forum, and congrats on a cool invention.

Has it been tested or will it work with any other after-market trigger setups like the Volquartsen TG2000 ?

I'm definitely interested, but having just 'upgraded' my 10/22, spending an additional $289 for a trigger group isn't in the cards.

Be careful. Atkins will sue you for patent infringement. I remember a thread somewhere else that he did not win many friends with his threatening posts.

It sounds like he was bought out after the govt destroyed another domestic entrapreneur's livlihood. Now someone else will profit from his years of work.
