The firing pin continues forward from the inertia from the slide being racked or the pump action gettin pumped and fires with out the trigger being pulled. I consider this to be a malfunction don't know why'd you want your gun to do that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slamfire (I know wikipedia isn't a good source of info)

Hope this helps.

Its when you can hold the trigger down and then cycle the action, loading a round into the chamber and it immediately fires as the action is closed, then you just keep cycling the action with the trigger depressed. It is like a crude mechanical "machine gun" effect of sorts. It is not easy to control as far as I know and not something I would recommend anyone use for home defense under any circumstances.


Has anyone noticed the OP posted this one question here and disappeared?

It reminds me of one my dad's old semi auto 12 gauge. The trigger mechanism is wore out, pull the trigger and sometimes it fires one round sometimes it fires three rounds.

Probably either didn't like the answer he got, or was satisfied with the replies and didn't feel a need to follow up.

Slamfires happen most often with a free floating firing pin, and can aldo happen in a worn gun (as mentioned). It is not desirable and usually quite dangerous. There was a guy who was killed when his SKS slamfired on him and ended up shooting himself in the back (try doing that on purpose!) at the local gun range. I think that particular Chinese SKS was known for this problem?

I think a semi auto would for your needs, but a pump is usually cheaper. A mossberg 500 is know for being easily modified. You don't need slam fire with well placed shots. If you actually aim the gun at the intended target you should take care of the problem quickly. By the way you do have to aim with a shotgun just not pinpoint accuracy. Practice quickly drawing the weapon up and firing.
