Interesting concept, never really understood how binary triggers pass the ATF test though.

I firmly believe it's an AOW waiting to happen so they let it slide.

Make fully auto legal!!!
Background check + a large fee cause government likes those and sell them to the public.
SBR, no tax stamp or anything, call it what it is, a rifle.

The law says if you press and hold the trigger and it fires once, it's a semi auto. If you hold the trigger down and it fires a pre set burst of rounds or fires continuously it's a machine gun.

A binary trigger fires once when depressed. It fires when released, each is a separate movement and each movement only results with a single discharge.

Clear as mud?

Good.

I'd like a binary trigger on my entry gun for fast doubles....

Electronics controlling the firing on regular types of rifles? No thanks. Like we haven't seen electronics go bad at the worst times. What about environmental conditions, temperatures long term?

The part he says to "deactivate the fire on release", you just keep holding in for 6 seconds or reach back to depress the button, that's a safety issue waiting to happen. One small malfunction and what if it decides it wants to fire when it's not suppose to, or fumbling to reach back when someone is being a little careless. Or what if your trigger hand grip presses something back there that changes the mode when you don't want?

Yes, I understand as with any weapon, we need to be very mindful for safe operation even with the simplest of guns, but this adds another mix that I don't see lasting long. I know the mini-gun and other military weapons incorporate electronics for firing, but I'll give them a pass on that due to it being a full fledged military with the infrastructure to support it.

The Franklin Armory Binary Trigger or Fostech Echo are the only ones I would consider where it still relies on pure mechanics and have their own safety features, not much difference than a full auto.

Trigger also operates in mechanical mode (non-electronic) so you wouldn't have to rely on electronics for operation of the trigger/firearm. Electronics would function for the special mode.

I would put one on a range toy, but not for a defensive firearm. Would't want a kill switch for my weapons that a tyrant can just shut me down before the party gets started lol
