Fostech has Echo triggers on sale

These are a lot of fun but not in the favor of the current liberal gun grabbers. If I hadn't lost my last one in a tragic boating accident I might not have ordered another. I sure hope it doesn't get lost in the mail!  ;)
I like the nicely controlled double tap ability the trigger allows with good accuracy. They are expensive but the sale threw me over the edge.I have a nice beater AR that it would do well on. Besides it drives the liberals crazy.

    It is a binary trigger that can be selected to fire when the trigger is pulled and again when released. The trigger can also be selected into normal semi-auto mode by a three position safety lever.

    I seen a Deputy Sheriff firing one of those at the range (his personal AR) and man he could dump a mag in a hurry, almost like a bump-fire and getting them on the target board (25 yards) fairly good too. He said he paid a pretty penny fer it.

    Me, you can buy a basic AR fer that and although it would be fun, practically speaking I have no real use for one besides maybe the cool factor and blowing away ammo even faster than normal with an AR. 

    The option of 'Normal' one-shot-one-pull of the trigger selector makes it more attractive than being stuck with a Mod until you swap something around again, though.

    I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!

    I guess you could call it a 'Two-fer' two shots fer one pull and release!

    That is what I like, the ability to switch to a normal trigger at will. I plan to put this on on a beater AR I just abuse as a range toy. This is a parts gun I built out of leftovers with a PSA lower. I have next to nothing in it so it doesn't hurt when I abuse it!

    How close can you get the hits on paper when you take your time from a rest and do one pull and one release?

    In my world I get way better groups at 10' than I do at 100 yards.
    ( It has to be the ammo )   lol

    At 50 yards probably 1/2”-1”

    If I had one and that happened, I think it would get lost in a hole in my back yard, in PVC.

    Installed the new trigger today. I locked the doors in case it tried to jump up and go hurt someone when I finished doubling the evil in it. 
    No sooner than I finished installing the trigger that dang evil rifle just laid there, I can’t quite figure out what I did wrong because it functions perfectly. Maybe it’s waiting until I go to sleep!
