It can definitely be done (I have one) - the "lot of work to be done" includes tig welding a strip onto the hammer so it can reach far enough out to hook onto the registered sear - the factory roller sears have an offset in them to clear the burst mechanism, registered sears are straight.Is there a way to use class 3 sear with a new 4 pos picto lower? Or, is the SEF trigger pack the only way to go?
The conversion price all depends on who does it. Urbach did mine for $150 back in March (and I "only" had to wait 3 weeks for the entire conversion), TSC Machine quoted me ~$300, and I think RDTS was about the same. For $500, they'd better take me to dinner and a movie first.Entirely possible, and there are actually quite a few of them out there in burst packs, as well.
The conversion cost a bit more than quoted above (~$500) but the final fit and function is 100% spot-on. For the correct configuration of a gun you're trying to build, sometimes the Ambi-Picto-Burst group is worth the added expense. HTH,
TSCMachine, RDTS, or Urbach all do them for sure. (Please don't send it to Urbach, it may slow him down on my G3K ). I'm not positive, but I wouldn't be surprised if Jayson at Investmentgradefirearms didn't do them as well.Thanks guys, I found a rifle local that im going to buy. It is a HK 94 that was converted to an MP5. It has the SEF plastic lower which will be changed out to the 0,1,3,30.
Any recomendations on who to have do the work?
Will this modification risk the value or permanintly damage the sear?
+1. Much easier to install a "burst pack" in your finger by the sounds of things. (That's where mine is, hehe!)With some practice, you can learn to fire 2 round bursts, or 3 round bursts, all the while in full-auto mode. (And by repositioning your trigger finger, even single-fire shots as slowly or quickly as you wish).
