These pictures reflect my latest "upgrade" to the gun: the "new" plastic SEF gripframe. I made the mod to fit on semi auto weapons myself. This grip frame accepts the "standard" semi trigger pak, with the addition of an extended length safety selector. This weapon also contains a Williams Trigger/Contour Job. The pull is significantly lighter and crisper, making this a very accurate and fun "paper puncher". You will notice the odd looking trigger profile in the closeup of the lower group.
These guns, originally stamped SAR-03 were stopped from importation
and fitted with "thumbhole" stocks and muzzle covers to conform to the
Bush Ban". After this modification was made, Springfield re-designated
these guns SAR-08, and all subsequent HK import/domestic clones from
Springfield since then wear that name. Sec922(r) provided that these
guns could be retofitted back to "pre-ban"status as long as they
were imported and the retrofit was completed by 11/90 (this weapon
was imported in 06/90 and retrofitted immediately upon receipt).
After that date, US made parts could be used to elliminate enough IMPORTED
parts for the weapons to be classified as Domestic Sporting Rifles, to
allow the fitting of the "standard" pistol grip and buttstock. However,
after 09/13/94 (and until 09/14/04), due to the ten year ban on "Assault
Weapons", a flash hider could NOT be placed on the gun (A flash
hider is considerd an "EVIL" feature), but a muzzle brake could be attached
as long as it is permanently fixed. The threads on the barrel also have
to be "neutralized"
(due to their inherrently EVIL nature). These guns
were imported until 1997. SA currently sells a DOMESTIC version
of the rifle, utilizing the US MADE Federal Arms recevier.

These are considered the best of the HK "clones" in that they are actually manufactured on HK liscensed equipment in an HK liscensed plant. With the exception of manufacturer's identification/designation stampings, there is NO DIFFERENCE between this weapon and any "authentic" HK91.
