    question about HK51 FMP vs HK91

    I'm looking at a Volmer built HK51 using an FMP receiver. I know little about the HK51 (I'm more interested in the sear it hosts). Can anybody tell me the differences/desirability of a Volmer FMP based HK51 versus one built from another receiver, eg HK91? And an idea on the approximate value of just the host (or the host + a Fleming sear)?

    I’ve got a Volmer FMP 51. Not many builders did them back in the day.
    Quality work. FMP were built on HK tooling.

    They are a real crowd pleaser if you are looking for
    Flames & Big Bang. Very soft shooting.
    Wear plugs + earphones.

    Prob worth 4-5k


    My take on 51s…
    HK91 by known builder > FMP91 by Vollmer> clone by known builder (eg MM ) < PTR < the rest

    There are also 51Bs done on push-pin HK91 RRs, but that is
    a totally different ballgame, lol…

    51 is a custom gun, so builder means a lot

    Wow, that is a considerable premium over a sear
