auto 68 special?

I recently purchased a 68 special with plans of converting it to mag fed by making a new front end for it. It will feed from the right because I want to keep the powertube and bolt that the 68 specials have.

My question is, can a smg trigger/sear be swapped into a 68 special to make it full auto? That shouldn't be a problem right because 68 specials started out as smgs in the first place am I correct in assuming that?

Could someone post a picture of a smg trigger/sear for comparison?

Thanks guys!

from left to right, SMG-60 trigger (uses a torsion spring), SMG-60 trigger (uses a compression spring), 68 Special/SMG-68 trigger.
Thats from C6quad's album. So the two triggers on the left will go full auto while the one on the right is just for semi correct? Are the sears different or all the same?

I haven't really opened mine up recently.

I'm assuming they would be considering I've only heard of replacing triggers in SMG-68s to make them full auto, but I could be wrong.

You should not need a new sear. Just add a pin/slot/screw/dowel/rock/bolt/etc into the oval groove on the slipsear.



This prevents the sear from slipping (semiauto), but will function normally as a full/auto.

Wait,HP, it looks to me like that would entirely disable semi-automatic fire, yes? I know old SMGs had semi halfpull triggers, with a full auto coming when you pull it all the way.

Guys, sorry to bring this 2+ years old thread back up but could anyone please get me a pic showing the differences between a semi 68 Special and a full auto SMG? I know it involves both the triggers (already shown up there) but I just couldn't find any pics on the sears.

Thanks,

Mendel.

the trigger is the only difference. the full auto trigger has the extension on the back so that when it is pulled all of the way that part holds the sear up, not allowing it to reset.

I just welded a hump on the back of my stock trigger to make it full auto. it shoots to fast to feed paint into, its a blender.
