SHOT 2014 — Tac-Con 3MR Trigger

After posting a picture of the Tac-Con 3MR trigger from 2014 SHOT Show Media Day at the Range on Facebook, we received plenty of questions on the trigger. Made to fit AR-15 and SR-25/AR-10 rifles capable of accepting standard AR-15 triggers only, the 3MR trigger is a drop-in trigger with three fire control modes; safe, match-grade semi-auto and a third match-grade semi-auto with an incredibly positive reset. Both semi-automatic positions measure a non-adjustable 4.5-pound trigger pull. The difference in the third mode, as described by the ATF:

“…The reset lever pivots forward, and the hammer engages/contacts the lever during the cycling of the rifle. In this position, the hammer contacts the reset lever during cocking, which applies force to the trigger, forces the shooter’s finger forward, and allows the trigger to reset rapidly.”

We had a chance to shoot the 3MR trigger and it is awesome!

Approved by the ATF as a non-NFA product, the 3M trigger only fires in semi-automatic mode. Much like the Slidefire stock, the trigger allows for rapid or “bump” fire on your AR-15. Components on the Tac-Con 3MR trigger are full EDM- and CNC-machined in-house, then coated with nickel Teflon (NP3.) When you find that sweet spot on the 3M trigger, you can fire your AR-15 in semi-auto as quickly as legally possible. We got a chance to try it out at SHOT Media Day and it was  awesome! Tac-Con is currently taking pre-orders for the trigger and expects to start shipping soon. The 3M trigger retails for $495. For more information, contact

  1. I just ordered a trigger from there website (pre-order)on Feb-6 and gave them a call today. It was about 15 minutes before I received a call back from Robert. He was very friendly and took the time to give me a more in-depth understanding of the trigger system and what there goal was when they designed it. He also said they were developing triggers for the Scar (both 16 and 17), Ak-47, and the Tavor. I have nothing bad to say about the customer service, frankly I was impressed he took the time to talk with me for 20 minutes.

  2. Horrible customer service from Tac-Con. I was a pre-order on the first day. I called and was told I would have it before Christmas. Every week after I have called and been promised the next week. The maker of these triggers is selling them in bulk to dealers and others and the people that ordered them directly from their website are being put on the backburner so they can move orders of 40 triggers at time to others. I have been put off and lied to from the maker of this trigger, Robert. I will be posting this up on every place that reviews this trigger. Customer service and being truthful to your customers is going to make or break this company. They have had excuses ranging from credit card processors, to being told that the triggers were built and boxed up but not labeled for shipping, now the last time I called I was told he was building my trigger right as we speak. The LIES continue. DO NOT buy this trigger from the company or the website unless you want to be treated poorly.
