Dan: any full auto pack, DLO or otherwise, are capable of shoot more than 3 calibers. I suspect you are referencing the fact that many Form 4's list 3 calibers. The more common HK's and clones are built for: 9mm, 10mm, .223 and .308. Other builds are for 45ACP, .357 , etc. FYI: there are other manufacturer's that made Registered Trigger Housings as compared to a sear. With the DLO box you must purchase the internals but these are not expensive. The difference with the Registered Trigger Housings & DLO is that they are 100% HK geometry which is why you will most likely pay $1,000 - $1,500 more.

Kwesi i knew they would shoot in 3 or more calibers i was not sure it was legal un less it was registered in those calibers specificly and yes you were right about seeing it on form 4 but i am assuming the cheapest i cag get in the hk registered sear or pack game is 14-17 thousand i think a regise3red receiver that is married to one gun would be cheaper? thanks dan

Would be cheaper if it is a clip on(, ie. uses a 'unregistered sear' with registered unmodified factory receiver, read the conversion article here on HKPRO for details) but a true push-pin will likely be more expensive.

I would definitely recommend going with a sear or trigger pack since moving it around between different hosts just adds A LOT of fun to the game.

I think the 14k day is mostly in the past... I'm seeing the sears moving in the 16+ range these days.

Yes a registered receiver will be cheaper, but not by much... say 15-20%. But you will only have one gun that is ever full auto. There is no swapping the FA parts from host-to-host like you can with a registered sear/pack.

dan...

+1 to all the comments mentioned above.
You can legally shoot all calibers with those sears and boxes. Dont fret over what is written on the actual form 3/4.
Reg Receivers are indeed cheaper than unmarried sear or "box" guns.
Most non MP5 (MP5 series sell at premium over the others for some reason) Reg. receivers run ...say...$13,000 whereas the Registered sear in a trigger pack alone w/o host gun seem to be selling for $16k-$17k now (or at least those seem to be the freshest asking prices I've seen).

If you see yourself getting into multiple host guns (it's a lot of fun!) then a reg sear or reg. trigger box is THE way to go. If you are a purest or see yourself shooting only that one FA gun OR you have tons of money and simply want to purchase multiple reg rec. guns ...then just buy Reg Reciever guns and avoid the Sear. Sears sell at a premium b/c of their extreme versatility.

Def read the HK conversion guide in the Library section of this site. It's the bible.

As far as "buying a sear for investment"....I don't rec' it strictly for that purpose. They are illiquid, you have to feed them ammo, and you'll end up buying tons of hosts and basically become addicted and you'll snort up all your profit if you know what I mean. But sears are a better investment than cars. Think of sears as a hobby that prob. will at least break even and you'll do well and not be disappointed. That is strong bc vast majority of hobbies come nowhere near breaking even.

good luck.
