    Omega om9 sear hosts

    For those who have them...(link below) have you had any problems with them or any other concerns? All the guys at HK pro will try talk me into comverting a POF/mke which is a pain In the dick or buy some super tactical Dakota tactical Monstrosity.

    Thoughts?

    I have an Omega 9K. It works great with my host. I originally started out with the Zenith Z-5P MKE Pistol, but quickly found there were a few issues with it. 1. You have to remove a welded block to allow a full auto trigger pack to fit. 2. A standard full auto bolt carrier cannot be used (there's another block that does not allow clearance). That being said there are ways around that (not that I'm providing any advice or advocating the modification) but it is possible.

    Now, going into this, I was a bit of a novice and foolishly thought no big deal, these are both easy changes. Doing some research, I found that the ATF required those two changes for importation as the MKE's are brought in from Turkey. Trying to find out if I could legally modify the host, I contacted both Atlantic and Zenith and neither of course could provide "legal" advice one way or the other. The conclusion I came to is that it's a gray area. Some people do it, some don't. I found numerous internet arguments both for and against and realized that I wasn't going to obtain a definitive answer. In my case, to better be safe than sorry, I left it alone and purchased an Omega, which has worked great. My Omega accepts a full auto BC and no modification needed for my trigger pack to function.

    Personally, I have 0 problems with my Zenith, it's a super fun semi and is extremely reliable. If I could ever find out that it was ok to modify the host, I'd pick up a ZENITH Z-43 P MKE PISTOL in a heart beat.

    Good luck!

    I wish I had a sear/trigger pack to put in my Omega, so I can't comment on it as a sear host. However, I can say that the one I bought is a beautifully crafted firearm and a joy to shoot. I would not hesitate to buy it again.

    I have a Omega OM9 Pistol.


    It has been excellent. It runs like a sewing machine with a registered trigger pack!! No mods needed. Install trigger pack and go!!

    Stay Safe,

    Hey CC,

    I've had a number of the earlier version of these guns (Coharie) and they have worked just fine. I'm confident you'll be happy with them. Nothing against my HK lovin' friends, but they are a bit of a picky (aka snobbish) bunch sometimes.
    AWWWW NUTS!

    My thoughts exactly!

    +1 to the Omega. I purchased a stripped receiver from Atlantic to build a reverse stretch on. I have yet to find an issue with it, everything was in spec and the welds were great.
