Don't get me wrong, I didn't intent to call you out for anything, your name was the most recognizable that jumped out of my head and the old members of the forum are sure to drop their two cents on most of the topics around here. I knew people would rag on me for an obvious mistake and I just intend to be aware of my shortcomings and limitations.Not sure why you chose to call me out specifically, but hey, whatever. You basically invited the following response by singling me out, so here it is:
I have shot an M&P-15 but I obviously don't own one, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten so excited about jury-rigging a AR binary trigger into the XCR so soon. I don't intend to own more guns than I have fingers on one hand, and I've never been all that interested in the AR-15 other than a few components and its low cost. It was worth a rental on a range but not much more. It is why I settled on the XCR for its versatility and construction. It's still worth a close look.You don't own an AR lower that you can cross measure to see the pin difference?.....which makes me wonder if you've actually shot one.
If you must know about my boring backstory, I am in school to be a CNC machinist and I'm looking to start my apprenticeship real soon with local machine shops. That's why a lot of my solutions revolve use of CNC machines. So for the time being, I do have access to CNC machines that I have a reasonable level of competency and freedom with (reasonable as in not crashing while I operate them and freedom as in not making NFA items out of facilities not licensed for them). Might get tricky to be around one once I'm out of the school's machine shop.Do you actually have access to the CNC equipment to do so?
I'm looking to get into making guns that are interesting to me, hence the study into the XCR binary trigger. However, if I don't find an easy solution to it then the idea will have to go in the back burner while I execute more low-hanging projects. Getting the dimensions to get the right timing on a trigger system is not something I've worked on ever. Adding an unreliable gimmick to a rifle that works fine semi-auto also makes this idea less of a priority. Still, I am interested in playing with the AR binary trigger, both in a FGC-9 build I want to do and, after learning from that, a specialized pistol.
