PSA Video From Franklin Armory–How NOT To Make A Pull And Release Trigger

    This past Friday I received an email from my friend, Jay Jacobson, president of Franklin Armory. As you may know, Franklin Armory makes a very well thought out binary trigger that was accepted and approved by the BATF without reservation.

    I’ll let Jay explain why they decided to make this video for all the shooters out there. Here is what Jay says about taking short cuts to increase the rate of fire for the civilian AR15:

    illegal disconnector AR15

    We thought it was necessary to make this video since there are a lot of individuals and even companies on youtube that are making videos of triggers that utilize out of spec disconnectors.  As explained in the video, ATF calls a trigger group that features an automatic function a machine gun.  We thought it was important to make this PSA so gunnies didn’t mistakenly get wrapped up in a crime with 10 years and 10,000 per occurrence.

    The video Jay did isn’t very long and it is very well worth watching.
