    Default HK53 NFA For Sale Question

    I ran across this and ask the guy if there was a fleming sear in it as you can see it is a shelf receiver. I was told the receiver is on a form 4 as a machine gun, but how can this be legally as it isn't a push pin receiver? If there isn't a fleming sear and it's a machine gun it must have a converted SEF pack to make it a machine gun right?

    Likely a registered receiver, find out who did the conversion - if it is a S&H, those have essentially a SEF with a machined sear (not stamped). They repositioned sear to allow the receiver to still have the shelf - aka same set up as a transferable sear but you cant move the SEF pack to another gun - big no no

    It doesn't have to have a push-pin to be a registered receiver. By the wording on his ad, it seems it was a registyered receiver 93 then cut down to a 53. I would ask if it was papered as a 93 and if it was, did Ralph remark it to HK53. Thats a no-no. And at 14,995, it's not a screaming deal. IMO.

    It was done on a 93 by HTA and Ralph did the 53 conversion work. I had never see or run across a machine gun done like this before and was kinda unsure of it.

    Personally, registered receiver shelf guns make me nervous. I understand the legality of it, but I still don't think I would own one unless the deal was to good to pass up. If you want an RR, find a swing down. IMO

    I agree. If it's a semi cut, I'd rather get a sear gun.

    I agree, I guess this is why you don't see very many out there.

    From the original ad....

    "I'm selling a registered receiver HK53, transferable on a Form 4. This was an HK93 when I bought it & sent it to the renowned Ralph Smith, owner of RDTS in AZ.
    Ralph shortened it to the factory correct 53 length & then restamped it HK 53. He added an HK53 4 prong FH, a paddle mag release & the proper 53
    foregrip, not the commonly seen MP5 short version. He performed a function check (2 magazines) deemed it up to his rigorous standards, cleaned it &
    then returned it to me. It has been unfired since, in my safe & is currently on a Form 4. For sale @ $14,995. shipped (CONUS) w/ the first tax to your SOT paid by me."
