As for what they meant, I could definitely have misunderstood. Here is the entire chain for context:
The HK world is interesting.
Do you have any registered trigger packs? And not just sears or receivers? I've tried reading your site but it's difficult with the long list.
We do not deal in registered trigger packs if we can help it. What they are is all they will ever be so no way to legally recofigure.
“not this sears or receivers” This two options are the most desirable of the types, of HK transferable machine guns.
We do not put our money in the dead items like the trigger packs.
Yeah since we are not like most dealers who stock nothing or only a couple of guns which makes is easy on the buyer as they have no choices to pick from we have plenty.
RR = registered receiver which would basically be one caliber firearm. Based on your “transcript”, I stand corrected as he did use the word pack.
I guess he is right that a registered pack will always be just a registered pack, just as my Fleming sear will never be anything more than just a plain old registered sear😀
AZ Brian... you are looking at about $30k+ to get into the registered HK pack or registered sear world.
I personally wouldnt sweat whichever route you choose to be honest. they both work fine.
I know it seems like a HUGE deal now (we've been there)...but it just isnt. It's not quite as "bad" as asking the difference of Fleming sear Vs Qualified and fretting over the differences or where to inscribe your SBR info on an MP5 but ultimately it's really a binary decision.
1. buy a registered receiver
2. buy a sear or DLO type reg. box. (these usually cost maybe $1k-$5k more).
Purists may want the box. And sure some will get hung up on the Burst vs blah blah.
Just buy a sear of box set up as SEF and be done with it. It's a commodity.
And in general the longer you wait before buying one the higher the price. Of course NOW is the rare exception as prices have softened somewhat over the last 1.5 yrs maybe (an entire heated discussion in and of itself).
SO...Just dont sweat it. Buy either at the best price you can and simply be done with it.
We tend to overcomplicate things here on HKpro and I apologize for that.
^^ for clarification the "(these usually cost maybe $1k-$5k more)" refers to DLO box prices over sear prices.
Thank you again everyone for the great advice. I've found a DLO trigger group (only) for $39K and I'm tempted. Found some good HKs w/ Flemming Sear Packs on DealerNFA for similar price, but they come w/ a host gun. I'm probably going to "pull the trigger" on either the DLO or Flemming.
Then I'll wait 9 months and finally get to shoot it :-).
