    I have not totally made up my mind yet, but on my short list right now is Mike Otte, TPM, and TSC though I've not spoken with him yet. I don't think I could go wrong with any of them though, but I was leaning towards Mike since he'll be finishing up my 23E soon and thought I'd have some continuity with my builds. Though that doesn't REALLY matter, but it's just another reason to help decide :)

    Same three builders on my list.

    I've been wanting to do a '53 for a long, long time and finally have the right HK93 rifle (I kept buying them and they were too nice, now I have a "donor" quality rifle with the right markings) and the right '53 parts kit.

    Jumpies makes a good point about builder pedigree and having it Form-4'd instead of me Form-1'ing it.

    @Mr.Maim , I am working through the 93 to 53 conversion process with Mike at TSC Machine now. He's been great, +1 for him and his wife Tammy. I am sure the others on the list are great as well, I've seen/heard nothing but good things about all those builders. Mike's SBR engraving goes on the rear tang as depicted in this photo:

    Very clean, and again, WAY better than my silly trust/LLC name or my personal info.

    @Jumpies (I can't believe you just conned me into doing that "@" thng ) When do you expect it to come back to your dealer? I'd like to see how the paint finish is on your 53. That's really my biggest deciding factor.

    I've been setting up for this for years.

    Ha! I said the same thing the first time I did the "@" thing.

    I am still probably 60 days out from having it back at my dealer. Can't wait!

    +2 for Mike and Tammy. They currently are building one for me in the RAL8000 finish. Can't wait to see the results. I have learned so much about roller lock HKs just from speaking with Mike. You won't find anybody more personable than Mike and Tammy.

    You intend to keep it forever until that baby is born, or you need to buy a larger house. Have a reputable builders name on it so you can sell it and make some money if you ever have too.

    So true. Mike and Tammy are good people.

    I have to disagree with you. A form 1 is an application to make a firearm. HK 53 is what will be on the finished product that will be in the NFA registry. I wouldn't start working on any SBR until the paperwork is approved by ATF.
