Hi Gabe- welcome to the forums. When you get a minute, stop by the intro thread and say hello.

To answer- no, have not seen one. There ARE fire control mechanisms (not the trigger per se, but associated parts) that will shoot "burst fire"- that is- 3 or 5 or whatever shots on full auto, and then stops until you pull the trigger again. The M4 variant of the M16 has a tri-burst mode.

The RATE of fire is generally controlled by other parts of the weapon, such as gas system, buffer system, etc.

on legal nfa registered:

direct blowback operated firearms like the mac10 types and uzi types you can slightly change the rate of fire by increasing bolt weight.

on a m60 you can increase the rate by putting a spacer in the appropriate location in the gas piston but it will quickly hurt the gun.

the best way to control cyclic rate is by the operator excersing proper trigger control.

The M240 has an adjustable gas regulator. The M249 does too, but I never noticed any difference regardless of how I set mine.

John- try tucking a washer behind the buffer in a 60.

But don't ask how I know about that.

As mentioned, changing the bolt weight in a M11/9 lets you change the rate of fire.

The stock upper runs about 1200 RPM.

With 3 different bolts for my Lage upper I can run -

550 RPM
725 RPM
900 RPM

ya and you can to by changing the volume in the gas piston(never do that)
but what i was thinking a trigger system that can be change when you change mag or while shooting.
the only thing i found was a old german chain belt heavy machinegun that let you change the rate of fire with a hallen key
i try to get the blue print but the gun is out of commision,recycle and the compagnie close

If its adjustable by and chain driven it's probably an old aircraft mounted gun.

actuly the men that operated the gun had german helmet but ther din'th look german and it was tripod mount and the video was in black and white.
ther could change the rate of fire when ther were shooting
but when ther did the gun shake so much make them look like moron
at one point ther just leave the hallen key in the socket and at the end of the video it was weld in it socket
it would be intressting to mounth that trigger mec on a modern machinegun
