Rarely does a day go by without more federal government overreach on guns. The latest controversy is over forced reset triggers. These handy devices push forward each time a round is fired, giving you rapid-fire capability. It’s great if you’re into shooting or want to take your gun to the next level.
So, of course, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) had to come in and ruin things with a bunch of new crackdowns.
The ATF vs. Forced Reset Triggers
The ATF put out an order to the trigger company Rare Breed, telling them they aren’t allowed to make forced reset triggers anymore. Rare Breed wasn’t impressed and hit back by suing the ATF to block them from enforcing this order. The Rare Breed lawsuit is now pending.
Although, in the meantime, the Graves V2 and WOT have also come up as decent forced reset trigger options, widening the playing field. There have been some accusations that people are piggybacking off Rare Breed and copying their trigger resets, but the bigger issue is whether forced reset triggers are going to eventually be made illegal.
If it was only Rare Breed making them, then the answer could be yes. Although, with numerous smaller organizations now coming online with these options, it’s going to be a much harder fight. That’s good news for gun owners and those who are interested in getting forced reset triggers for their firearms.

Rare Breed Takes on ATF
As for Rare Breed, their lawsuit wasn’t just because ATF told them to stop making forced reset triggers. It was also because the ATF wanted them to come up with some kind of giant recall for all their FRT-15 triggers which were already out there.
The ATF is acting like it’s in charge of everything that happens, and Rare Breed didn’t want their business wrecked by busybody federal agents. They disagreed that the FRT-15 creates a machine gun and said they would not comply. That’s how we got to the lawsuit, which is ongoing.

Why the Obsession?
The truth is that braces, bump stocks, forced reset triggers and other gun products are only the obsession of the ATF and our government because they have failed to take down the main portion of the Second Amendment.
For that reason, they are now trying to go after different ways that gun owners are enhancing their weapons. The government wants to find a way to make legally owning a gun expensive, annoying, and full of paperwork.
That’s why they go after things like forced reset triggers, claiming they turn a gun into a machine gun. The truth gets lost by the wayside, but the headaches that gun owners suffer are real.
