1. A semi-automatic firing and disconnecting device for a weapon for use with ammunition, the weapon having a first trigger member and a second trigger member, the second trigger member being adapted to receive a firing force from a user for firing the weapon and thereby detonating the ammunition, the first and second trigger members being adapted for cyclic movement relative to one another from a first position, in which the trigger members are operably connected to one another to a second position, in which the trigger members are not operably connected to one another, the semi-automatic firing and disconnecting device comprising a third trigger member adapted to replace said second trigger member, said third trigger member including a trigger gate mechanism, said trigger gate mechanism including an extendable member, said extendable member being adapted to:

  • (a) transmit the firing force to the first trigger member in an extended configuration so long as the first and third trigger members are in the first position, (b) be incapable of transmitting the firing force to the first trigger member in a retracted configuration, (c) move from said extended configuration to said retracted configuration in response to the recoil of the first trigger member obtained as a result of firing the weapon, and (d) remain in said retracted configuration until the firing force is substantially reduced.
