Akins Accelerator folks file second suit
Complaint here, in pdf. I tend to agree with their legal theory, but wouldn't give high odds of winning.

From Bill Akins:
If you like .22 Gatling guns, then you may like my latest prototypes that are stock dress up kits for the Ruger 10/22 that make them look like tripod mounted, full size machine guns. These are dress up stocks that have nothing to do with increasing the rate of fire of the firearm. I do use the BMF activator, which is manufactured by BMF corp, and which is a clamp on crank fire trigger activator device that has been BATFE approved for decades that allows me to crank fire the firearm like a gatling gun. It functions the trigger 4 times for each revolution of the crank. One of my prototypes is the first water cooled Ruger 10/22 in existence in the world. It has a working water cooling jacket around the barrel and resembles a 1917 Browning water cooled machine gun. The air cooled version resembles a 1919 Browning air cooled machine gun. I am working on a final 3rd pre production prototype which I intend to market. I am also working on a double barreled water cooled version that will look a bit like a Browning and a Gardner gun had a child together. All these will be able to be hand crank fired and the double barreled, double receiver versions will have each of their triggers operated by the BMF activators that will be connected to each other via a rod. So that as you turn the crank it fires both firearms at the same time. This is legal and just the same as if you held a firearm in each hand and fired them at the same time. Since the double barreled water cooled versions will be using two separate Ruger receivers installed side by side inside a wider fake receiver and both barrels will be sharing a common water jacket.
I have also designed a belt feed for the Ruger 10/22 that is currently being fabricated. It will not require any modification of the Ruger 10/22 at all. It will be able to be scaled up for use on any bottom magazine fed firearm. Including AR15's or even semi auto pistols. I do not discuss the belt feed or show pics of it online since I intend to patent it.
You will probably have to copy and paste it, but here's a link to some pics and videos of my first two prototypes for the mini MG dress up stock kits for the Ruger 10/22.....
The below link is for my ideas of making a double Ruger 10/22 receiver, double barreled, water cooled version that will look like the Gardner gun and a Browning water cooled 1917 had a baby....
As you can see, I have not let the BATFE nor its anti gun, acting director, Michael J. Sullivan get me down. He may have unjustly caused the destruction of Akins Group Inc, but he has not and will not stop me from exercising my second amendment rights. In addition to fighting this BATFE injustice against my accelerator rifle stock invention in the courts, I have also moved towards inventing firearm accessories that have nothing to do with rate of fire at all. I use another manufacturers crank fire device on my dress up prototype kits. So if BATFE wants to outlaw that, after previously approving it for decades, then they need to go talk to someone else since I do not manufacture it. Regarding the belt feed I have designed for the Ruger 10/22 that can also be scaled up to use on any bottom fed magazine fed firearm without any modification to those firearms. The BATFE does not have authority over magazines or ammunition feeding devices such as belt feeds, unless and until congress passes a law against them.
