Burst Pack - Trigger Pack Removal Made Easy

Press the lever down...



With downward pressure on the lever, rotate selector counter-clockwise until you get to "minus one" or "12:00 o'clock" (per the selector itself)...depending how you look at it or what you call it....



Special Note:

When you’re putting the pack back in the housing, be sure the two parts listed in the photo are seated correctly. It's very easy to have "Part A" unseat and migrate towards the center of the pack making it very difficult to get the selector back in. It's not a big deal if it unseats...just hook it back on "Part B" and you'll have a much easier time getting the selector back in.



Don't worry, it's really easy to do.

Great Info. I do have a questions.

Is this one of the methods to switch packs from an mp5k to a regular mp5? The mp5k has no tang on the rear of the plastic housing so it wont fit the regular mp5.

I would like to be able to switch trigger packs from my sp89 to my 94 but I have no idea how to do it. Any help is appreciated.

Yes, the grip housings are different between the MP5K and the MP5, but the trigger packs that go into the grip housings are the same. All you need is a grip housing for the MP5, and your trigger housing can be taken out of the MP5K grip housing and can be put into the same type of grip housing for the MP5

There is an error in the instructions. Either the picture is taken from the wrong side, or the description is wrong - the selector needs to be turned counter-clockwise when viewed from the left side of the pack. To disassemble, start from the safe position, then follow the above instructions. When reassembling, put it back into the same position, be sure both halves are pressed tight against the housing, hold the lever down as shown, and continue turning the selector counter-clockwise when viewed from the left side of the pack.

Can anyone point me to a similar tutorial for an SEF lower?
They're so easy, you don't even need pictures.

Just turn the selector counter-clockwise past 'S' so the lever is sticking straight up in the air. Then just pull it out of the frame. Next, grab the hammer, ejector lever, whatever is convenient, and pull the pack straight up out of the frame.

Reassembly is just the reverse - push the pack back into the frame, align the selector so it's sticking straight up into the air, and push it back into the frame and pack. While pushing it against the pack, turn it counterclockwise back to safe. Done!

Very good info.
Now I've got a noob question and I feel stupid for asking it:
How does the right side selector seperate from the left? I'm afraid to just pull them apart. Do they need to be in a certain position?

Put them in the position shown in the pics above with the end of the lever sticking straight up. Then the right side just pulls off. The shaft that runs through the pack is connected to the left side.

It must be in the same position for assembly.

Though its a pretty easy operation, are there any common newbie mistakes? Something along the lines of the Part A and B as above?

I bought a factory Navy pack from adam. Did the above, and everything came out fine. But, when replacing the selector, it would *not* (without a great amount of force) rotate in either direction, and not much at that. If I removed the right selector lever (the "extra" one) and turned, it would rotate and click into place, albeit loosely.

My S/F FBI pack was no problem. Until a few times later :confused: Same exact scenario. Thankfully it was all going to IGF the next day for a build.

This a common newbie thing? Or did I just do what I do best? (make the simplest things the most difficult..)

A few things you may have missed, and one that's missed in the pics/instructions - when you put them back together, the left side goes in at the same angle it came out, straight up. Be sure the spring-loaded hook on the right side of the pack is on the round boss. Push the locking tab on the inside down while pushing the left side into the pack. Now push the right side on.

Now here's the part that was missed - once you're holding both halves tightly against the housing, continue turning it counter-clockwise as viewed from the left side, don't turn it back towards safe, turn it towards full-auto. In an earlier post I wrote to turn it counter-clockwise back to safe. The trick is that you have to go through Full auto, then semi, then to safe. But it must be counter-clockwise.

From my memory, I did exactly that. The left selector clicks under the selector release lever and fits pretty closely to the pack itself. It stays in if its turned toward the floor. The couple times the FBI pack worked, turning counter-clockwise was easy and it easily clicked back into place.

I did notice on the navy pack that the selector was fairly difficult to flip between settings. Anyway, it should be back early next week and I can give it another shot. If not, I might just have to drop by your place for a bit of schooling :)

Don't forget to press down on the lever while you snap the 2 halves of the selector lever together.... then turn the selector to lock everything in place.

Got it. The key was indeed to press both selectors in tightly. Once I looked at the spring loaded cam on the right selector (non-pictograph side) and figured out how it works to lock the selector, it made sense.

I am confused! Forgive me if I am wrong or if I have missed something but on disassembly I turn my SF/FBI Pack Selector Lever (the left lever with axle) Clockwise (looking at it from left side) as per the instructions at Page 34 Operator's Manual. Also, as per the Manual, I turn it until the "white indicator line" is pointing down (to 6 o' clock). There is no mention of turning "counter clockwise".
Likewise on my SEF and 0 1 packs, I turn, as per Manual instructions page 32, Counter Clockwise (again, looking at it from left side).
On re-assembly of ambi packs, according to the Manual,when both are mated, the selector levers should be rotated in a Counter Clockwise direction (viewing trigger pack assembly from left side). On re-assembly of SEF (and 0 1) packs the selector lever is turned Clockwise,not counter clockwise, as per pages 39 -41 Manual.
Have I missed something? Can these points please be clarified?
Keith.

The removal instruction picture shows it from the right side, so clockwise is correct based on their picture, although it does not specify "as viewed from the right side". Then the installation picture shows it from the left side, so counterclockwise is correct. It's unfortunate they didn't specify a side in both cases, but it is what it is.

So to clarify - when removing or reinstalling the selector on an ambi pack (Navy, burst, FBI), you always turn counter-clockwise when viewed from the left side. When the tip of the lever is straight up and down, the right side selector can be removed, and then the left side with the axle will pull out.

Then to reinstall, push the left side in, again, with the lever sticking straight up, then push on the right side. Holding them both tightly against the sides of the pack, continue turning counter-clockwise until the click back in to one of the marked locations.

SEF packs with the metal selector are different - turn them counterclockwise and straight up to remove, but turn them clockwise to reinstall, they won't spin all the way around like the ambi packs.

So ambi packs are always turned counter-clockwise as viewed from the left whether installing or removing.

SEF packs are counter-clockwise to remove, clockwise to install, as viewed from the left.
