HK "Navy" aka "SEF" Trigger Group Defined

I'm in the process of completing a new video review of the recently released ICS MP5 A3 - plastic body.

As part of my SOP I always do a final scan of the web before I conduct a video review.

During my last check, I came accross the website, which had a great page on the different types of HK trigger groups that have been made. 

I cannot say for sure if this is an exhaustive list, but there are several variations to look at.

This site is of course dedicated to the real steel weapons that HK makes, but the diagrams and trigger group explinations are replicated in airsoft form in many cases.

You might impress a couple of folks at the next skirmish if you spit out the German translation of "SEF".

 According to HKPRO the words are the abbreviations of the German words for "Safe", "Single fire" and "Full Auto".  (Noooo... really?)

Now assuming you've geeked out really hard and everyone is giving you stink eye, you can take solice knowing that you know the half dozen or so trigger groups AND their German pronunciations and they don't!

On a related note, even though airsoft does not have all the trigger variations that HK has produced (stock anyway), you may be able to simulate your favorite trigger setting by installing a computer chip it in your guns circuitry.

If you're interested, I'd recommend looking for some good places to start.
