Its one of those things. Its really easy to get the gun to fire f/a. Basicaly, make the slip-sear not slip. But slowing the hammer, and increasing the feed are 2 hurdles that have never really been done easily. Look how complicated the Tippmann F/A ended up being. Forcefeed hopper AND dual hydraulic shocks to slow the hammer... and it still was unreliable.
It's not that it was unreliable - I had one and it was fantastic. They're like Cockers in that sense - if you have one working, don't f*&% with it. Honestly it was a genius design, just complicated.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
