I don’t often find myself weighting in on a product steeped in controversy but it seems that I had set my self on that track when I purchased the new Trijicon SRS red dot optic. After having built a new AR with a PWS upper, I got to wanting to outfit it was some other optic than what I had laying around the house at the time, I had a price point, I got to looking, I got to thinking and I became motivated by wanting something… different.
Since my first test run of the Tac-con 3MR trigger, I would like to tell you that I kept at it and spent a thousand more rounds in order to better hone in on getting the optimum rate of fire out of the 3MR, but… I didn’t have the opportunity. A variety of business obligations involving travel kept me on the road shortly thereafter, so my efforts to get in any serious range time were greatly hindered in the weeks that followed.

Tac-con 3MR PART 1 OF 2
Since the Shot Show, there has been a good deal of fuss as well as nay saying about a potentially rocket fast new trigger system from a company out of Phoenix Arizona, called Tactical Fire Control, aka Tac-con. This trigger system, known as the 3MR (3rd mode) was said to be capable of near full auto speeds, have very short uptake and ZERO over travel. But, was this all true?
I don’t know what about it caught my eye and I cannot say that there was one particular thing that sold me on it. I cannot even tell you how I came across it with any more certainty than I can tell you how many AR type builds have passed through my hands in the past 10 years. However, now that I own the Rock River Elite Comp I feel a bit dumbfounded in my good fortunate in having chosen it.
