Someone said Qualified steel sear is the best sear w/ unlimited calibers(?), anyone care to share their .02 cents?
Yep, made on the same dies at the same time from the same stamped steel material and then heat treated. S&H sears are made of cast steel and are also high quality.Qualified sears and Flemming "H" Sears are the exact same thing. There is no difference other than the name. They are both worth the same money.
Not that I have all that much experience with sears to begin with, but the only broken sear I've ever even seen a picture of was a RDIAS from an AR. But it was the non-serialized part of it, so a replacement could be made.I wonder if anyone has ever had these types of sears wear or break. I haven't heard of any personally. Anyone?
Post on Bowers board back in August wrt S&H sear breaking the leg under the trip lever.......sent sear to Urbach for the weld-up. Urbach tells poster he's done 4 or 5 before.......no follow-up on the repair from original poster. With Urbach doing the work, he could already have it back and not posted a follow-up, or.........he might not get his sear back in the foreseeable future.In my 12+ years of broadband internet connection to numerous firearm message boards, I have never heard of any HK sear, by any manufacturer breaking. Not even a "I know this guy, who knows this guy, who has a fat brother-in-law who stepped on a sear and broke it." If anyone ever breaks an HK sear, I'd love to see some pictures.
And that is why the Fleming sear is more desireable over the S&H sear but I have personally never heard of any of the two ever breaking or wearing out.The Fleming and Qualified Sears, which are virtually identical, were stamped out of 'heat treated high carbon steel' at the same time out of the same stock. Fleming and Qualified Sears (carbon) are made of higher strength steel than the S & H Sears (tool). Also, it is not known if the S & H Sears were ever heat treated.
