The wizards at Franklin Armory have done it again. Up for presale starting today is the company’s latest adventure: the AK-C1 for a Binary AK47. Purists will hate the fact that I’m calling all AK patterned/styled rifles “AK47s”, but I’m just going to let it fly (all hate mail can be forwarded to James Reeves’s Mailroom PO Box). These new triggers will allow for a safe-semi-binary selector function that will allow the operator to fire a round on both the pull of the trigger as well as the release of the trigger. Delivery of the preorders is set for Q1 of 2019.
Having tested Franklin’s H&K, B&T and soon the CZ Scorpion binary triggers, I can safely say that just because something is fun, doesn’t mean it is necessarily a gimmick. Each model has its learning curve, but with a little bit of practice, simulated automatic fire rates are definitely achievable. Impressive and fun.

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.
