Transferable K2

This would be fun to shoot. I didn't realize there were transferable Woos out there:

https://www.gunspot.com/listings/det...e-machine-gun/

Part of the description:

Item Description

This Chester County Armory listing is for a South Korean Daewoo Precision Industries Model K2 5.56mm transferable machine gun. Originally imported by Stoeger Industries, this model is a fully transferable select-fire machine gun, and is identified on the ATF Form 3 as a Form 2 Registration as a manufacturer. Seldom seen in the U.S. as a select-fire version, this K2 is great overall condition. The internals are solid, and there are only a few cosmetic blemishes in the external receiver. This is a fully transferable machine gun.

Not sure how that works with the dates.

"By 1982-83, the final XB-7 prototype completed development and received official nomenclature of the K2 rifle. After field tests, it went into serial production in 1984. It was officially fielded in 1986 and made its first public appearance during the 1987 Armed Forces Day Parade." (wiki)


So how was one imported and registered pre-86 if it only made first public appearance in 1987?

Just curious is wiki wrong with the dates? This article says they were imported in early 1980s.

The confusion on dates may be from the SA being imported before the FA versions. I would be very interested, but not at that price! Not even at half that price! I'm sure that the ATF has the dates, and probably the serials of the legal guns.

I'd be interested to see how they performed the conversion since a real full auto K2 does not have a sear pin hole in the receiver.
Obviously, factory Daewoo full auto parts probably weren't readily available back in the mid 80's when this rifle was converted and papered.
Looks like they may have jury rigged an M-16 sear to work with a welded up semi auto Daewoo bolt carrier.
I just wonder what they had to do to the bolt to actuate the sear and how they modified the selector to work in three positions.
Probably used an M-16 sear pin that is too short in length for the slightly wider Daewoo receiver.
Hopefully it wasn't the SOT who buggered up the sear pin hole so badly.
Sloppy engraving as well, although that was not unusual given the engraving options available to your average SOT back then.
I could see it selling in the 18k-20k price range because it's a pretty rare conversion, but 35k is definitely a bit farfetched.

I believe that importation was discontinued in 1986!!!

Will note that factory fa gas blocks has a tridium insert in the front. That's why the hump int the hood is there...it would be drill and a vial inserted. Can only imagine what the fcg & bolt carrier look like.

That site is high on all their transferables. It is cool, but you can get a nice collection going with $35k.

Now this might be a little closer to being worth $35K for a transferable...shame it will never happen.
