trigger

Yooooo, why is this the first time I’ve seen this:

Print Shoot Repeat is using the Rare Breed FRT-15 Trigger, which apparently doesn’t change the classification of the gun.  This is because it still adheres to all the rules the ATF made surrounding modifications and auto fire.

As I was writing this post, the name Rare Breed seemed strangely familiar, but when I messed around on the Rare Breed Triggers website linked above, I realized I had never seen it before.  Then I googled the name, and it hit me… they are the company that makes those elaborate cringe AFFLICTION-looking AR Lowers for dudes that wear the t-shirt brands with the 8in American Flag on the sleeve, and buy Dodge Chargers on 96 month 23% APR leases.  Whoever at the Rare Breed company decided to separate that whole AR Lower dumpster fire out onto a completely separate website (Rare Breed Firearms) is an absolute genius, and should get a raise.

If you’re curious how the drop in trigger works, here’s a video on that:

They also have other videos on the trigger website with a very lawyery looking lawyer saying it’s definitely legal.

Thoughts?

PSA:

🗣”HuuRR Durr BoOgEr HooK on ThE BanG SwiTch” thankfully wasn’t said.

Not the usual humor content I post, but I figured maybe some of you guys needed to hear this.

Thoughts?  I hope someone AckSHULLys me with some science that conflicts with what the guy in the video is saying.

Check this out.  You can adjust the rate of fire:

That’s something new (to me anyways).  Guys in my Instagram post were saying it has existed on paintball for years haha… classic.  I’m not sure how much this specific version is, but they have a version 1.2 on the digitrigger website for $600.

This is how they say it works:

A firearm that is DigiTrigger enabled becomes a hybrid, with two distinct fire control groups. The first and primary one is the mechanical group, which operates exactly as the mil-spec trigger group originally found in the AR-15. The second is a microprocessor based firing system, which operates seamlessly with the mechanical trigger group. Since the second fire control group is software based, the user can choose between preset modes.

Cool stuff.  I don’t really have a use for it, but I appreciate the work that went into it.  Being a fan of both technology and firearms, I find it interesting at the very least when the two come together.  I still have hope that someday as technology continues to progress, a “smart” gun can exist without compromising safety and privacy.

Thoughts? The fudds would love a trigger that was limited to one round every 1.5 minutes.

OH Lawd this is beautiful.  What could possibly go wrong?

Here is a incredibly long video of the installation and function:

Why?   Just…. Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

If you try to go to the company website triggerpointtechnology.com you’ll see there is a “this site is no long available” message.  Astonishing, I wonder why? *throws money at screen and nothing happens*

I’m holding out for a light and laser switch where I have to lick the barrel, or temple index before it will go on.

TriggerpointThoughts?  Are you guys high-speed enough for such a “system”?

Gat tip: Jeep, Kevin, no uno

Describing a trigger to someone:

FXhummel-M16-ShirtIt’s like that.  The words convey the message though, but yea dudes can get carried away.

Normally I’d just go with a simple “crisp” or “squishy” as catch all descriptions.

Thoughts? Do you say anything more unique than what he mentioned?

Holy dat count on the LaRue Tactical MBT-2S Trigger:

0:23 into the video we see that the total trigger pulls are allegedly at 127581, 129362 and 146485 and still going strong.  God I love a good testing rig.  I have no idea what the life is supposed to be on my standard no-frills AR-15 trigger group, but if it’s over 100k color me impressed.  Anyone know?

You can pick up a MBT-2S for $220 at LaRue.  Here are the details:

Sparing no expense, all major components are precision-machined from S7 Tool Steel. The result of this extra effort is a glass-smooth, hyper-consistent trigger that will satisfy even the most scrupulous competition shooter, but also be overly rugged for the battlefield. The MBT-2S breaks crisply at 4.5 lbs (2.5 lb first stage, 2 lb second stage) and has a smooth and positive reset. Made in-house, in Texas, in the USA.

Larue-Tactical*shrug* sounds good to me.  Does ARFCOM still pray to LaRue facing the South daily starting at 5:56:45 AM?
