He's going to use the '93 as a host for an HK sear, not a registered reciever.Hey everyone, I'm fairly new to the HK33/93 arena. As an avid admirer of "classic" military firearms I'm thinking one of these will be my next build.
My understanding is that it is prohibited to convert a semi-only firearm to F/A. So what would be the point in installing a F/A carrier in the 93? Isn't the 93 the semi-only variant of the 33? I was wanting to covert my SL8/G36 to F/A but was informed by the ATF that this was illegal. Wouldn't this apply to an HK93 receiver as well?
My primary reason for asking is that I would like to do the build with as many genuine HK parts as possible... most importantly the receiver. To do a F/A rifle, I would need to purchase a pre-1986 registered HK33 receiver which I would imagine would command a steep price.
Anyways, is the HK33/93 noob (me) missing something here?
Thanks Chef! As I've been reading up on the topic, I learning (hopefully I'm correct) that you can use a semi-auto receiver as the "host" for a regsitered auto-sear... and that assembly is legal getting around what I was told by the ATF that you can not assemble a F/A rifle with a receiver that wasn't registerd as F/A prior to '86.
