66518 Federal Register/ Vol. 83, No. 246 / Wednesday, December 26, 2018 / Rules and Regulations 4Examples of recent ATF classification letters relying on the 鈥樷榮ingle pull of the trigger鈥欌 interpretation to classify submitted devices as machineguns include the following:

鈥n April 13, 2015, ATF issued a classification letter regarding a device characterized as a 鈥樷榩ositive reset trigger,鈥欌 designed to be used on a semiautomatic AR-style rifle. The device consisted of a support/stock, secondary trigger, secondary trigger link, pivot toggle, shuttle link, and shuttle. ATF determined that, after a single pull of the trigger, the device utilized recoil energy generated from firing a projectile to fire a subsequent projectile. ATF noted that 鈥樷榓 鈥榮ingle function of the trigger鈥 is a single pull,鈥欌 and that the device utilized a 鈥樷榮ingle function of the trigger鈥欌 because the shooter need not release the trigger to fire a subsequent projectile, and instead 鈥樷榗an maintain constant pressure through a single function of the trigger.鈥欌

鈥n October 7, 2016, ATF issued a classification letter regarding two devices described as 鈥樷楲V鈥15 Trigger Reset Devices.鈥欌 The devices, which were designed to be used on an AR-type rifle, were essentially identical in design and function and were submitted by the same requester (per the requester, the second device included 鈥樷榮mall improvements that have come as the result of further development since the original submission鈥欌). The devices were each powered by a rechargeable battery and included the following components: A self-contained trigger mechanism with an electrical connection, a modified two- position semiautomatic AR鈥15 type selector lever, a rechargeable battery pack, a grip assembly/trigger guard with electrical connections, and a piston that projected forward through the lower rear portion of the trigger guard and pushed the trigger forward as the firearm cycled. ATF held that 鈥樷榯o initiate the firing . . . a shooter must simply pull the trigger.鈥欌 It explained that although the mechanism pushed the trigger forward, 鈥樷榯he shooter never releases the trigger. Consistent with [the requester鈥檚] explanation, ATF demonstrated that the device fired multiple projectiles with a 鈥樷榮ingle function of the trigger鈥欌 because a single pull was all that was required to initiate and maintain a firing sequence.

鈥n April 13, 2015...
I don't know what this is but it's definitely not related to the Rare Breed trigger with those extra triggers, toggles and shuttles. Sounds complicated as hell.

鈥n October 7, 2016...
I'm probably wrong but this sounds like the DigiTrigger. But again I don't see any connection to the Rare Breed trigger.

BTW, the FRT-15 is now $380. When you can find one. (y)
