I'm not a present or former member of the USMC --- but my two cents on the subject of semi automatic trigger reset --- is the proper function testing of a semi automatic firearm. A person...should perform a function safety test of the semi-automatic firearm, after field stripping and/or cleaning.
Which is: Put the cocked rifle or pistol on manual safety, in the on/safe position --- and pull the trigger --- the hammer should not fall. Next...put the safety in the off or fire position, and pull the trigger --- the hammer should fall. Keep your finger depressed back on the trigger, cock and release the charging handle --- and slowly let go of the trigger, while feeling or hearing the click of the trigger reset. If you do not feel or hear the trigger reset...the gun has malfunctioned; and might possibly go full auto when the trigger is pulled.
