Tac-Con™ 3MR Trigger System Update

They’re taking pre-orders for it now. It comes in at $500.

Here’s the ATF determination letter, which describes how the trigger operates:

… the reset lever pivots forward, and the hammer engages/contacts the lever during the cycling of the rifle. In this position, the hammer contacts the reset lever during cocking, which applies force to the trigger, forces the shooter’s finger forward, and allows the trigger to reset rapidly.

    Sounds to me like some real trigger finger slap.

    I had an AK that did that. I paid $60 for a new trigger group so that I could make it stop!

    Now, cobble up a simple spring-loaded gizmo to fit in the trigger guard, which will put 5# of force against the trigger, and have an outside disengagement lever (second trigger). THAT would be an interesting mod…

    Well, tell you what: I’m going to go for it.

    I’m in WA State, and we can’t have Full-Auto of any kind, even if we could afford $16,000 for a transferable one.

    This thingie comes with a letter from the BATFE that says it’s not full-auto, so I’m covered. The state would have to pass a new law to ban a thing-that-is-not-a-machine-gun-but-scares-us, and I’d be grandfathered.

    I’ll put it together and give you a full run down on my blog.

    In the short term, however, I’ll need to get a new stripped lower with the right markings for the third position. Who can you recommend for that kind of work?

    What’s more, now that shoe string* running from the trigger around the grip to the bolt handle will work to give you the semblance of full auto** if you have this thingie.

    * When I read about the shoe string “auto sear”, I wondered “what trigger resets faster than the action cycles?”

    ** “Semblance” because it’s still just real fast single shots, and I suspect just a couple or three of them before you get a jam, or ripped case head, or real bad out of battery, or ….

    I would love to have one of these but I’d be a buyer at like 200. I bet it works well and is a ton of fun. The bumpfire stocks work well and are fun. I don’t understand some people’s need to crap on things like this that are awesome ideas. I can’t see why it would cause out of battery firing or other bad news any more than bumpfiring does. And, newsflash gunnie internet, semi-auto only sporters aren’t “as good or better than” select fire fa guns in “actual combat. ” that’s just lies people tell themselves to feel less bad about the rights we don’t have anymore.

    Oh, Tac-Con! You so crazy! Come on, quit playing. What’s the real price? $125,$150?

  10. Robert Says:

    They have to sell at that price to afford the lawyers and still have some left over…

    “Tirno” – what’s your blog? I’m wanting to see real-world experience with this thing, before I pull the trigger (no pun intended) on buying $500 of.. well.. trigger.

    I’d like to know, functionally, what it amounts to.

    My suspicion is that it may – MAY – permit a ‘bump fire’ like end result, by forcing the trigger back to a reset position – or if there’s still a need for a physical, full, conscious, pull of the trigger for each round down the barrel.
