    Two that I know of will do the work. TSC makes a modified carrier/bolt and MM will modify the receiver so you can use a full auto carrier. I haven’t decided which way I will go yet as I just submitted my paperwork. Of course the new housing I bought needed to be clipped and pinned to work with a SP5.

    I have HKs and clones. My favorite clone in the MP5 class is TPM Outfitters. You can have it built the way you want. They do great work and are reasonable. Their MP5KL is one of my favorite hosts. It is a reverse stretch and a joy to shoot

    Can you elaborate? I've read the NFA handbook (if that's the ATF handbook you are referring to) and I don't recall seeing that in there.

    Agree this doesn't make sense. If the SP5 without a block is an illegal MG, then an SP89 is an illegal MG. I know the laws and rules are not always logical like this, but it's not something that seems particularly worrisome to me. I am not a victim of the "secret handshake and password" paranoia that tends to penetrate the NFA community.

    Just 5 years ago when the John Keyosayian Colts were being liquidated, there were some forums that would not even allow the obvious remakes (with post-1989 restructuring manufacturer markings and A4 lower reinforcements) to be discussed, for fear of stoking up ATF interest. Now the obvious remakes are being openly sold as Keyosayian guns, and touted as desirable because of modern black A4 receivers.

    My point is, nobody is being thrown in the clink for innocent mistakes surrounding legit transfers of $40K receivers and trigger packs. It's paranoia.

    And TSC has an *obvious* motivation for declaring that converting an SP5 is a no-no. He makes a lot of money refurbishing the old guns, and has his own work-around.

    I'm not saying I have the final word on this any more than the next guy. But I don't fear being jailed because MM cut a block off an SP5 to make it an SP89, essentially, for my perfectly legal registered DLO box.

    FYI -
    My understanding is that MM replaces the SP5’s front shelf (that has a hole) with a traditional
    semi-auto shelf without a hole before removing the block in the receiver

    I have a PCS and it has been great. It comes sear ready. The wait time was minimal when I got it last summer. Price was right. It is a great host gun.

    Yeah, I'm beginning to see where you clone guys are coming from. The prices for HK German guns are astronomical right now. I'm going to get one of these and keep my eyes out for an HK94 or a sear-ready gun worked on by TDyer or TSC or RDTS. I can shoot it in the meantime while my DLO frame is in jail. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/902910198

    Congrats on the DLO Box acquisition! I've gone down both roads with HKs - clones and all German HK hosts, and I shoot both. I have had really good luck with these builders and their products: DJ Getz, TDyer, TPMO, and TSC. Good luck on your HK journey - it will be a fun and learning experience for sure

    Fwiw, agree re: DJ Getz work - he made decent yet relatively inexpensive clones - sadly no more…

    I think he did the QC work that Todd should have done. I bought a 9mm, .40 S&W, and a couple of 10mm K PDWs barreled receivers from him.

    Scott.
