Semi-Automatic Rate of Fire...

I tried searching for this, but came up empty handed. I'm surprised this info isn't out there, but maybe I just suck at searching.

I'm trying to find out if the automatic weapons (assault rifles, carbines, pdws) have different rates of fire when they're in semi auto mode.

Like will a FAMAS's semi auto fire be faster than the SAR-21?

Which gun in each class has the fastest semi auto, or do they all have the same rate?

To be perfectly honest I haven't thought of this either while it's a valid question. I tried checking few files and I don't see values that could slow down firing in semi-mode, so I am guessing it's just matter of RoF. I can't say anything for sure though, maybe somebody else here knows.

Same ROF.
