Officially, only "Semi-auto" weapons can double tap. Many wpns are listed as Auto or 3rb with also have a single shot setting, that setting is semi auto.

In the real word, an M-16 can double tap just as well an any semi-automatic wpn, officially, can such wpns in Savage Worlds double tap.

--------------

also in the real world, most machine guns (M60, etc) don't have a semiautomatic setting, they can only fire fully automatic. One exception is the M2. Officialy, in SW, can all weapons fire single shots?

Sure. Typically, an Autofire weapon in single shot mode would by definition be firing Semi-Auto.

Officially, I'd say it depends. Mostly on two things, the group and the setting. If the group doesn't care about such detail in the game, then I wouldn't worry about it. If they do, it's easy enough to designate.

Also, there may be settings where such designation is important. For instance, in Deadlands: Reloaded it's noted that gatling weapons can only fire on full auto. It's kind of an important point in the setting, so it's there.

Not exactly a concrete answer, but I hope it helps.
