Minden, NV – -(AmmoLand.com)- Precision firearms manufacturer, Franklin Armory, has successfully adapted the patented Generation 3 Binary Firing System to the AK Platform. Prototype triggers have undergone substantial field testing, and the final configuration will be placed into production soon.
Franklin Armory BFSIII Binary Trigger for AK Rifles
The BFSIII for the AK platform is slated to start shipping the first quarter of 2019. Pre-Orders for the BFSIII for AK will begin on October 19th. Franklin Armory President, Jay Jacobson, stated, “The Franklin Armory engineering and design staff have really worked hard to create a fabulous BFSIII for AK that works in as many AK platforms as possible.
Given the variety of clones out on the market, this was no small task.” Fast on the heels of their previous release of the BFSIII for CZ Scorpion; Franklin Armory proves again to be the premier manufacturer of Binary triggers with six models currently available. The Gen 3 Binary Firing System was released for the AR platform in August of 2016. All BFSIII triggers feature a three-mode safety selector.
Mode 1 is “Safe.” Mode 2 is “Semi” for semiautomatic. And Mode 3 is “Binary” mode. In Binary mode, the firearm will discharge one round on the pull of the trigger and one round on the release of the trigger.
All BFSIII models feature the ability to negate the release round in Binary mode by modulating the safety selector back to “Semi” mode or “Safe.”
Additionally, all BFSIII are engineered to prevent the operator from modulating the selector to “Binary” mode while holding the trigger back in “Semi” mode.
