Ok, I was working on shooting another 200 rounds this afternoon, which would bring the total round count on my CA C93 up to 500, with Monarch steel cased 223; great ammo by the way, no FTF issues like I had with various other brand ammo the first 300 rounds, and the cheapest I've found.

At around the 180-190 round mark of the afternoon I had an instance of "one trigger squeeze 2 rounds fired" or "doubled". Now, I was doing some rapid fire leading right up to this incident where as before I was shooting and very diligently reacquiring target. My buddy says that because it's still early in the breaking in process that it's hard to really nail it down and that this could have been a bump fire where the trigger group hasn't fully settled and the action cycled and the trigger reset before I took my finger off of it.

What do the wiser than I say?

The video was a much better exploitation than what my buddy tried to explain to me via text and that is what I think happened.

You might want to check the spring in the trigger pack. Some conversions re-used the sear/elbow spring by reshaping it to semi configuration. A poorly converted spring with not engagee the sear/disconnector and give you an unsafe weapon ie. hammer follow through. This is kind of spring is what I'm referring to:


HK Semi Auto Sear Spring for HK91 HK93 HK94 HK21, RTG Gun Parts


It would be a bad situation if your firing the gun and it double or went completely full auto on you, especially if there's an officer or ATF agent near you.

Sounds like time for upgrades and extra insurance for you.
Send the trigger pack to Bill Springfield for a better pull, while he's at it he can make sure everything is perfect. As others have said, it may have been a bump double. However, it's not something you want an ATF or LEO hearing, on purpose or not. The attention gathered can make a guys life heII, right or wrong. If you are going to be doing bumpfire you want it to be very deliberate, not something that can easily happen when you aren't trying.

Yeah I put it down and looked around for a while after it happened expecting the range marshal to demand to see my "papers".

Admittedly I was experimenting with how I was holding the rifle in an effort to better control my shot placement while firing rapidly, I was the only one at the range. I don't like rapid fire simply because I don't like not hitting where I'm aiming and figured I needed to practice.

You'll get better with practice.
