Tac-Con™ 3MR Trigger

Mentioned the trigger a bit back and posted the video of the new take on a legal happy switch. Well, I was curious how it worked so I emailed their media person asking them for more info. Here’s what they said:

Thank you for your interest in Tac-Con™. The response to our revolutionary, new 3MR (3rd Mode Reset) trigger has been overwhelming and we appreciate your patience as we launch our new company. We issued a media press release on November 12th and it made some minutes later. Not to say that was a bad thing but we were not entirely prepared for the tremendous public response! We are ramping up production in anticipation of our official launch on December 1st!.

About the Tac-Con™ 3MR Trigger

The 3MR is a drop-in 3-mode fire control system with Safe, Semi-Automatic, and Tac-Con™’s patented 3rd Mode. The 3rd mode has a positive reset that dramatically reduces the split times between shots. The positive reset characteristic is achieved by transferring the force from the bolt carrier through the trigger assembly to assist the trigger back onto the front sear. As a result, this gives the firearm the fastest reset possible. Both semi and 3rd mode positions exhibit a non-adjustable 4.5 pound trigger pull weight. Why 4.5 pounds? Because most law enforcement agencies limit any trigger used for duty to 4.5 pounds and above. Extensive testing done by Tac-Con™, the ATF (BATFE), and professional shooters have proven that this is the fastest semi-automatic trigger in the world. The 3MR is ATF approved and is NOT a NFA part. Each trigger is accompanied by a copy of the ATF letter. This is not a bump fire system. The shooter must pull the trigger once for every round fired.
Additional information will be available at on December 1st.
Thank you for your interest in Tac-Con™!!

TLDR version: speeds up the reset, no bumpfiring, and the trigger pull weight is 4.5lbs.

There was speculation that it was a hair trigger. I’ll be curious how well it works.

Update: It’s an automated response. I replied back to this email asking about price and demo versions; and they sent the same email immediately.

    So basically it induces trigger slap like all those early 2000s AKs…

  2. Sebastian Says:

    I was going to say, that sounds like a trigger that will slap, which is usually unpleasant to shoot. I went out of my way to get rid of the slap on my early 2000 AK đŸ™‚

  3. Unknown Says:

    I had been pondering how it worked myself, and was guessing a reduced trigger pull might be involved. That auto-resetting trigger makes a lot of sense (and seems legally dubious, even if the ATF says it’s cool), if you can just apply steady pressure and the sear resets on its own.

  4. Rivrdog Says:

    And the advanced reset is aided by the weapon’s recoil, so…if it walks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s NOT bump-fire? GMAFB.

    The ATF must want this themselves, so it’s being built.

  5. The Jack Says:

    Rivrdog: But the ATF is .gov They already can get the fun switches.

  6. Rivrdog Says:

    Yes, but can their “clients” get them? You know the clients, those Fast & Furious ones? Gunwalker Two, coming to a crime-infested neighborhood near YOU…

  7. HeadshotTactical Says:

    I don’t care what or how it does it, as long as it works. Seems like its several thousand dollars cheaper and easier than a lightning link, RDIAS, or buying a pre 86 M16.

    please be $300

  9. Patrick H Says:

    Agree with HeadshotTactical- its cheaper and more available. If its priced decently- I’ll get one.

    for me this has to be under 200 for me to care.
