Rare Breed FRT-15 Trigger
Purchased Jan 1, 2021
I’d like to give you my first impression of the FRT-15 Trigger. This trigger was purchased, not provided for testing. I set up an 11.5 5.56 suppressed AR pistol per manufacture recommended configuration. I found that the suggested heavy buffer to be the least effective in achieving cyclic rates described and show in Rare Breed videos. I ran the first magazine of XM193 which had intermittent cycling issues. Stoppages and failure to fire issues persisted through the entirety of the first magazine. After swapping out the heavy buffer with the lighter buffer, I began to have more reliable operation. The 2nd and 3rd Magazine operated without issue. I was unable to reliably achieve a single round trigger pull. I tried many times to send only one round, several times I achieved one round trigger pull by quickly jerking the trigger and flicking my finger off the trigger. The accuracy of the method was horrendous.
This trigger in its current configuration should never be used for any defensive weapon or in any capacity which someone’s life may be on the line. This trigger is 100% a novelty. It is fun to shoot when it is working. The number of different reliability issues incurred while testing this trigger were varied and occurred regularly.
The reliability issues alone remove this from consideration on a defensive rifle or pistol build. The inability to achieve single shot capabilities from this trigger pack were disappointing. Enjoy it as a novelty, do no use it in any capacity in which someone’s life may be depending on it.
