In what sounds like the title for a summer blockbuster, Franklin Armory has unveiled a Binary Scorpion BFSIII capable of firing on both the pull and release of the trigger. For their latest product, the engineers at Franklin have come up with a new trigger that allows for semiautomatic and binary fire capabilities in the CZ Scorpion EVO series of firearms, while preserving the safety feature that allows the second shot in binary mode by switching the selector back to the safe position.
Working in coordination with CZ USA for the development, the Franklin Armory Scorpion binary trigger will be available for pre-sale starting on July 4th of this year. Seen here on the Scorpion S1 Carbine, the fast, double-tap binary action allows for simulated fully automatic fire rates.
Pricing and delivery dates have not yet been announced. The press release and links to franklin Armory can be found below.
Minden, NV, May 1, 2018
Innovative firearms manufacturer, Franklin Armory®, with the help of CZ—USA has successfully adapted the Patented Generation 3 Binary Firing SystemTM for the CZ Scorpion. Prototype triggers have undergone substantial field testing, and the final configurations are being placed into production currently. The BFSIIITM for the C2 Scorpion is slated to start shipping during the 3rd quarter of this year. Pre-Orders for CZ-C1 triggers will start on the 4th of July.
Franklin Armory® National Sales Manager, David Gockel, stated, “Thanks to CZ-USA and their instrumental help with this project, we have been able to provide consumers with yet another highly requested BFSIIITM platform.”
Fast on the heels of their previous release of the BFSIIITM B&T-C1 for the B&T APC9/APC45/GHM9, Franklin Armory® proves again to be the premier manufacturer of Binary triggers with over 5 models currently available.
The Gen 3 Binary Firing SystemTM was released for the AR platform in August of 2016. All BFSIIITM triggers feature a three mode safety selector. Mode 1 is “Safe.” Mode 2 is “Semi” for semiautomatic. And Mode 3 is “Binary” mode. In Binary mode, the firearm will discharge one round on the pull of the trigger and one round on the release of the trigger. All BFSIIITM models feature the ability to negate the release round in Binary mode by modulating the safety selector back to “Semi” mode or “Safe.” Additionally, all BFSIIIWI are engineered to prevent the operator from modulating the selector to “Binary” mode while holding the trigger back in “Semi” mode.
