how autotriggers work

Anyone care to explain it to me?

I'm thinking about the mechanical side of the cam in the safety hole and so on.

You hold down the trigger and pump it while your holding the trigger a ball will shoot for each pump.

the cam goes into the safety hole, and rests on a part of the trigger
when the gun is pumped, the cam rotates, blocking the trigger, similar to a safety
when the pump is forward, the cam goes back to its resting position
when you hold down the trigger, the force of the cam rotating pushes your finger forward with the trigger and when the pump goes all the way forward, your fingers pressure pushes the trigger back, then the cycle repeats

Interesting, I never knew how it worked. So its sorta like an RT trigger when it is bouncing off of your finger? Sorta

I wouldn't say anything is bouncing off your finger in either the AT or RT case. Think of both as mechanical trigger returns... that's all they are, really.

Well I didn't really mean bouncing off, but still, you know what I mean (actually, I guess you didn't)

Does a phantom have a mechinism similar to this? That holding the trigger down and pumping it causes it to fire at the end of each pump?

Actually when you hold the Phantom trigger it holds the the trigger plate up, in the way of the hammer sear.

when you pump a Phantom, the bolt is pushed back and and the hammer locks on to it with the hammer sear, when you release or push the handle forward it brings the sear into contact with the trigger plate. This causes the hammer to release on the forward closing stroke. Hold trigger, pump, repeat.

you also might want to note that with the vast majority of Phantoms, it's a LOT less accurate to AT. Personally with a Phantom I never auto trigger, with a CCM its just fine though, smooth enough to pull it off.

Well, I guess I disagreed with the "bounce" statement since I'd consider it more of the trigger pushing back at your finger, as a function of the forward pump action.

We already determined that I didn't mean actual bounce, but that is the only way I could think of to describe it.

Pics of the actual cam surface that works inside the autotrigger. Two different AT lever assemblies. Black one works on a slider frame and the silver one on a hinge frame.
