    Default HK Sear Caliber Designation

    In the never ending carousel of what ATF wants to see on their forms...

    In the past, HK conversion sears have been registered in multiple calibers on NFA forms (9mm/.223/.308, etc.) or registered as "multi" or variations of that word. In recent times ATF decided that they would only allow a single caliber. This slowed down forms processing for those who were simply duplicating the information on previously approved forms. As of June of 2016, it would appear that ATF has changed its mind again. "We no longer accept multiple calibers and have decided that all sears should be registered as N/A." Applicants should be aware of this most recent change.

    Interesting.... I just got mine back in April with a N/A for caliber and understood that's how they were suppose to be registered.
    "...but just like every other clone, they are copies of the original and copies are never as good as the original."

    Personally, I think this is very much preferred and should resolve some confusion about using a sear with a .22 kit or installed in a 40/10mm host.

    I hope so, too. Designating a caliber or calibers for a sear seemed silly. And then there are the situations where somebody would re-barrel a .40 MP5 into something weird like .224 BOZ...

    Interesting indeed.

    My Fleming sear was approved about 18 months ago in all three calibers. Guess I missed the single-caller directive

    Wow, a move from the ATF that has some sort of sense to it. Now if only sears weren't pushing 30 grand

    I really need to go buy a lottery ticket. That's about the only way I'd be able to swing a sear.
