Title: Yet another useless ammo burning idea
Post by: kunkmiester on July 22, 2021, 10:14:37 pm
They've ruled the trigger cranks are not machine guns.  Has anyone tried a multi pull trigger?  The trigger has multiple...detents I guess is a good word.  At each on the sear is tripped, so a 3/8" pull would be say three rounds.  You need a separate pull for each round like a crank.  I'm thinking a ratchet type layout on the trigger, allowing the action to reset with another latch to release without resetting the trigger.

I'm not the first to have the crazy idea, but a quick google search doesn't bring up anyone who has actually done it, just an old forum thread from 2011 asking about it on the firing line.  Technically it should be legal, but it is in that gray area batfu likes to mess with.

Anyone heard of the idea?

I would think the trigger pull weight would need to be insanely heavy, or the trigger would be pulled through multiple stages on the recoil of the first shot.  And at that point the relevant alphabet agency would likely declare it a machine gun.

So... like a progressive trigger a-la the AUG, P90, and a few others I can't think of, but each pull is semi-auto only?

I mean, you could do it, but at best you'd only be simulating 2-3 round burst.

That sounds right.  And yeah, just simulating 3 round burst would be the point.  You might make a 5 round version, but you probabpy need at least an eighth of am inch of pull per shot, and more than 3 gets really big pretty quick.

The only real point on my end for it would be something people would pay ten times more for a trigger group for.

And to get the Bureau of A$$holes, Turdblossoms, F***ups, and Eediots breathing down your neck.
