    Default HK41 Set trigger?

    So, what is this? Did someone send their Santa Fe HK41 trigger out to Williams to have it made into a set trigger? And were they usually serial numbered to the bolt carrier (and presumably the rest of the gun) like this?

    Sure looks like a Williams set trigger mod to me. My buddy just bought a Springfield SAR8 with the same trigger mod done to it.

    Edited to add... Just read the ad text, seller tells that it is a Williams trigger. Looks like the Santa Fe it belonged to was turned into a HK 21 clone.

    I'd bet they are regretting that donor selection now.

    I sold my 5/66 '41 for $6.5K ten years ago.

    Isn't that why they make PTR's anyway? :-}

    Looking around, I saw another one like this in the Buddy Hinton archive:

    Definitely an aftermarket modification. That particular seller in California bought a number of these Santa Fe's, mostly to make into MSG90 clones if I recall. Yes, the trigger housing and bolt carrier etc were numbered to match the rifle.

    I bought a 1974 HK41 years ago, and still have it. The prior owner had sent the rifle to Williams for the set trigger mod. It works well, but in the years since, I've come to regret that the rifle is no longer in original condition.
