IMG_4319_1080 Recently Geissele Automatics posted a video on their YouTube page (seen below) of a trigger producing less than .1 sec split times on a PACT Shot Timer. Immediately the internet blew up with speculation that this may be Geissele’s new “three position” trigger. That was discussed on this AR15.com post.

The slick part of this system is that the selector could them be rotated to the third position that is usually reserved for full-auto rifles. In this third position, the trigger would function similar to the Geissele SD3G trigger with a super short, single stage pull. If this would indeed produce the 0.1 sec split times seen in the video it would keep up with fully automatic rifles. Continue reading
