    I’ll start off by saying I’ve got other binary triggers and I didn’t by it (them) to conserve ammo ... they are obviously for cover-fire or the big grin you get when blasting through a 50 round drum.

    So, what say y’all that have them in a 10-22, are you pleased with the quality & function?

    So far the binaries I have don’t surpass the ease of use of my M16 or HK registered sear but they aren’t too bad. I have binaries in my CZ EVO, MP5 & 2 AR’s.

    I do think they are a great option for those newer guns that us lowly civilians can’t own in full-otto, as well as the majority of people that want the experience without laying out $20,000 ... I really wish these had been out before I’d bought my machine guns.

    Works pretty good, I think the weak link is me getting used to it I've only had it out twice. Message_1615326532425.jpg

    I don't know I have one and it seems to be causing cycling issues, as if the bolt and hammer are interfering with each other.

    I have considered one as well as a gat crank. But never went beyond considering.

    I caught one on sale a while ago and just got around to installing it. It wouldn’t work in binary mode but aI did some research and managed to get one 10 round magazine to work. Haven’t tested it beyond that.

    The trigger cost more than the gun I installed it in. There’s a little voice in the back of my mind that feels a little ashamed of buying something so extravagant, like maybe I should have just given the money to an animal shelter or donated to a school.

    I had a total knee replacement almost a month ago and now that I’m starting to get around, I’m getting board; I’ve had this Charger for a couple years and believe the Binary Trigger should be the next step in its evolution ... this is an old pic, I’ve ACE buffer tube folding mechanism with a gen2 Tailhook on it now.

    I’ve asked on a couple other forms also, and a got good reviews from 2 guys, another said the trigger spring was about 6 pounds so he cut 1.5 coils off it and after a little practice runs like silk ... since I’ve got other binaries I’m hoping the learning curve will be short. If I can get to the range in the next week or so I’ll try to make a short video.

    They supply a new, longer trigger spring. I had to remove it and reinstall the original before mine would work in binary mode.

    I have had one for about 6 months. No problems and works fine. It is super fun.

    Expensive but I think it is worth it. Definitely puts a smile on your face. You should have seen my father in law shooting it a couple of weeks ago. Ear to ear grin.

    I got the chance to use mine more this week. It definitely needs high velocity ammo to function in my gun. Standard velocity causes it to short stroke fairly frequently. The hammer spring must be heavier than the factory one.

    I was shooting Mini-Mags, for me the learning curve is almost ZERO! (I do have other kits but haven’t practiced much with them.)

    I don’t know about the strength of the hammer spring, I’d think it would be close to the stock spring ... but I’ve been wrong before!

    I was using 25 round Ruger mags and ripping them so fast I’m sure people on the ranges adjacent to me had to be thinking I was shooting full-otto, but in truth there were a couple short pauses, but it was almost as fast as my M16 with my CMMG PDW 22 M16 upper.
    .
    At 50yards we have a human steel silhouette. I was shooting with a 4x Bushnell, Mini-Mags through a form1 suppressor, in binary mode. I was dinging it with every round ... and walked away with a huge grin!
