Defense Review’s all over a couple of new guns from FERFRANS developed by, strangely enough, FERdinand and FRANcis Sy, Filipino immigrants who are building their SBRs and carbines in the promised land of Southern California. As the Sy boys see it, when it comes to select fire, less is more. “In a nutshell the heart of the FERFRANS line of weapons is the Delayed Sear Activation System which is a mechanical device that reduces the cyclic rate of full-auto fire of the M16 / M4A1 type rifles from 850-900 rpm to 550-680 rpm.” Check out the one-handed action in the video above. Besides staying rock steady, Fer and Fran say what makes their guns all that is they were designed to be machine guns first, instead of jimmying full auto into a semi gun. All we know is we want to run a few thousand rounds through one to see for ourselves.
