Do you have a need for speed? Tactical Fire Control might have the trigger for you.

The Phoenix, Ariz., manufacturer is now taking pre orders for its much anticipated Tac-Con 3MR Trigger System. And if the drop-in system lives up to its hype, there is a pretty good chance it could be the hot AR product of 2014.

The system consists of safe, semi-automatic and the Tac-Con patented 3rd Mode of operation. It’s the 3rd Mode that makes 3MR special, providing a positive trigger reset, reducing split times between shots.

In short, the trigger resets itself for the next shot, even while there is finger pressure still on it.

According to Tactical Fire Control’s press release, the positive reset “[I]s achieved by transferring the force from the bolt carrier through the trigger assembly to assist the trigger back onto the front sear. As a result, this gives the firearm the fastest reset possible.”

If Tactical Fire Control’s teaser video gives a truthful glimpse of the trigger’s potential, the system is capable of blistering rates of fire. The trigger has a 4.5-pound pull weight in both its semi-automatic and 3rd Mode positions.

Tactical Fire Control has made a point to stress its system is ATF approved and is not a part banned by National Firearm Act. In fact, the company ships the trigger with the ATF approval letter – just incase there are any questions. The company also emphasizes the 3MR is not a bump fire system.

As mentioned before, if the Tac-Con 3MR lives up to what it’s promised it should win accolades and fans. But AR enthusiasts will have to pony up cash to be on the cutting edge.

Presently, the trigger system fetches $495 – nearly twice the amount of many top-end systems. But for those who live to sling large volumes of lead accurately, it might be a small price to pay.
