Yes, that's considered illegal. The only time your marker should fire is when you physically pull the trigger.
A little tip: it's generally a bad idea to remove the return mechanism for your marker's trigger, whether it be a spring or magnet or some other fancy doodad. It may give you a shorter, quicker pull but it will always make bounce much more prevalent. I say this because most of the people who can make their gun fire just by hitting the tank have usually removed their trigger's return mechanism.
