[Video] Tac-Con 3MR Trigger – Near Full Auto Rate of Fire – LEGALLY

The 3MR trigger from Tac-Con is one of the products I was seriously excited to check out at SHOT Show’s Media Day at the Range.

With that much expectation, you would think it would be easy to be disappointed once I got my hands on it.

NOPE. This system definitely lived up to my expectations. Now, keep in mind, I only fired one magazine with the system, and saw about a dozen other people fire it, so don’t think this is a review by any means. This is simply my first impressions of this trigger system.

Based on info from the manufacturer, and what I saw at Range Day, some of the experienced Tac-Con shooters are able to do 500-600+ rounds per minute. Of course, the full-auto versions of the M16 and M4 can do up to 900 rounds per minute, so we aren’t quite up to full auto rate of fire with this system. In my opinion, this is a good thing. The rate that the 3MR fires at is much more controllable than all out full auto in my opinion.

Many people, myself included, concluded (incorrectly) that this must be a bump fire trigger system to achieve that rate of fire. That is incorrect. This trigger system uses a very short travel distance combined with an automated trigger reset to give the shooter the ability to shoot very quickly. However, it IS totally dependent on the shooter’s dexterity and you absolutely have to pull the trigger for each shot.

The current price is ~$495 and it available directly from the manufacturer. I was told that Tac-Con is currently working on distribution and you may be able to get this at a local shop in the very near future.

This price is a bit high for a drop in trigger system. However, it does come with a competition grade 4.5lb trigger. Combine that with the fact that you also get the assisted reset/short travel 3rd mode for rapid fire and the price becomes a bit more palatable.

I don’t know of another company that is producing a trigger system similar to this, so I’m going to go ahead and call this a game changer. I would really like to see some independent stress testing and high round counts done with this system before I give it a thumbs up, but so far, I really like what I’m seeing.
