Franklin Binary Trigger in an Omega MP5K Login/Join

I was perusing Franklin Armory's Binary triggers ... the HK 9x/MP5 triggers to be precise. It's supposed to have a 4.5-5 pound trigger just like the AR triggers, plus it's drop-in.
Of course the website only has retail prices so I started shopping and found it on GunBroker $100 cheaper and ordered it from AKTrader who got it out immiedently. Of course I should have looked around more or maybe I was just a day too early. At Preppers, I haven't seen it but on the HK Pro site they had it with a 100 round drum for the same price I paid on GunBroker ($529)

It arrived yesterday, I installed it in my Omega MP5K this morning and (being my day off) went to the range this afternoon. Took some sub-sonic 147's as well as regular full power 115's and 124's just to run it through the paces ... It does have a 4.5-5 pound trigger, it ate everything with zero issues and I could make it go as fast as I wanted. That may be because I've got some practice ... I'm not sure about that but there were no trigger issues, couldn't "out run" it as some people call ... No tuning issues like with the AR ... I'd go as far to say, this has the preformance I was hoping for with the AR.

(Edit) It came with an ambidextrous selector but it dug into my trigger finger worse than the Scorpion EVO, so I used the blank cap it shipped with.





Oh, it came with stickers to indicate it's Binary but since I have it on a SEF lower I didn't use them ... And I'll be trying it on my other HK's and that lower is propritary to the K.

Glad to hear it. I've only installed a Franklin trigger for a friend but am seriously considering one for one of my SBRs.

Another data point is appreciated

I first got a BFS III for my 6945 SBR and recently got the HK model for my Z-5P pistol.
I LOVE my 2 Franklins. Makes Shooting Great Again.
The bonus is the MUCH better trigger when firing in the non-binary mode.

I have a Franklin G3 in my mpx sbr and a fostech in my DD MK18 sbr.

I've never had an issue with either. I do think the fostech is a smoother trigger.

I picked up an Echo too and would have to agree ... they're both nice to have on an AR depending on if you're planning to use multiple uppers or dedicating it to one upper ... the 22LR conversions work great in the Franklin too as they don't depend on tuning.

Sooo envious of you guys. This state I'm in already has the razor wire fence up and the setup electrified when it comes to allowing binary triggers. Oh the vileness of the Leftist Coast...

I was very surprised how well the fostech works with the 22LR conversion.

What 22 conversion do you have?
My FosTech won't work at all with the CMMG upper.

I have the cmmg kit. Bought a PSA 10" upper just for 22lr. I'm not running 22LR through my MK18 upper.

You do have to buy the full auto adapter for the kit. And you have to alter the adapter if your trigger came with the bolt carrier. You can buy the adapter from fostech if cmmg is out.

This video shows how to make the adapter work if your trigger came with the bolt carrier.

Gave my Franklin an updated housing because he's been such a good "boy"(?)...

Z, if you don't mind me asking, where did you get the c&p 013 housing?

Got an AR one to try because of this thread.

My niece (a normally broody teenager) now has a permanent smile after a couple of mag dumps.

So far it has worked well.

I looked on the Preppers website. They list 2 AR-15 Franklin Binary triggers:
SKU 5550A and SKU 5645A. Both seem to be "Gen 3". I only noticed this because one is in stock and one is not.
I had my credit card out and then decided to ask, here.

Any help?

Edit: it looks like straight trigger vs curved.

I went to the Franklin Armory site, there they had 3 AR triggers ... one with a free pistol receiver for $429, one without a "free" pistol receiver for $386, both were BFSIII™ AR-C1 Trigger ... the other was a Franklin Armory® BFSIII™ AR-S1 ... which had a flat trigger bow. It was also $389

I looked but didn't see any SKU numbers.

Z06, so no problems or issues dropping in the HK-C1 trigger kit into your Z-5P? I thought I read awhile back that Zenith MP5s might have a fit problem with Franklin's triggers.
