The FRT-15 Story: An Interview with Rare Breed’s President Lawrence Demonico

    In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves interviews Lawrence Demonico, the president of Rare Breed Triggers. Rare Breed Triggers manufactures the FRT-15 trigger, a “forced reset” trigger that permits an FRT-15 owner to shoot a semi-automatic AR-15 as fast as humanly possible while still fitting within the definition of a semi-automatic. However, Rare Breed Triggers has found itself in litigation with the BATFE over the trigger. Tonight, we talk with Lawrence Demonico about the FRT-15, Rare Breed’s struggles with the ATF, what’s happened so far, and what might happen in the future.
