The clearance on the selector for the trigger tail is too deep, the trigger gets pulled back too far, the hammer misses the sear on reset. That's how the full-auto works - the trigger can be pulled further to the rear, but on a machinegun, the auto sear catches the hammer. On a "semi" receiver, the hammer just follows.

Been happening a lot lately - a combination of the DSA trigger and the DSA selector.

Makes me kindof miss the days they just stamped "US Made" on the Austrian parts.
