I've been holding off on posting about this until I could get it out in the field and evaluate it. The Franklin Armory BFS fire control group is a shit hot piece of gear. For those not familiar, the BFS is a binary trigger; it fires a round when the trigger is pulled, and it fires again when the trigger is released. If you've fired the pull shot and don't wish to fire the release shot, you can move the selector lever to either the semi-auto or safe position. I took it out a couple weeks ago and again today, and y'all this thing is FAST. Double taps can be done basically on autopilot, sustained rapid fire is faster than any other semi-auto I've ever fired, even faster than the TacCon 3MR.

Franklin Armory will tell you that their triggers must be installed by a gunsmith, but it comes with instructions and it's not at all difficult to install. I ended up having to take it out and reinstall a few times to get everything situated correctly, but that was user error on my part. If you've ever put together a lower, you can install it yourself. They sell the full set including two different trigger springs and two different buffer springs for $429.99. I also just noticed that they've started making an HK version for the G3, and there's an ACR version coming soon.

I'm guessing you had a Gen 3, since the earlier versions required some milling. Were you shooting mil spec 5.56? And how was accuracy?

It is the gen 3. I was mostly shooting cheap federal .223, but I had a couple mags of 5.56 that seemed to work out well too. Accuracy seemed to be just fine. We were shooting pretty close though, maybe 20 yards, so I don't have a great gauge on that. The shots were sometimes so close together that it was hard to distinguish the sounds of individual shots.

I have an acquaintance who bought one of the earlier versions of it. He said the accuracy was so-so, but it was pretty particular about the ammo it liked.

I've never been wild about these work-around auto conversions, and frankly I've never cared for full auto of any sort. But I can see where it might be practical in certain circumstances, and I like the selector switch so you can go back and forth with it. I guess a two-round burst is almost as good as a three-round burst, and maybe even better.
