    Default Can I use this "Thick" H buffer for HK53 rifle with non-buffered 53 carrier

    I want to put AR stock on my 53 rifle has non-buffered carrier and I bought this aluminum AR stock adapter. Can I use this "Thick" H buffer with aluminum adapter on my 53 rifle?

    I read few old threads about 53 compability with A2 or A3 stock but mostly were with buffiered 53 carrier. Thanks

    I wouldn't, I bet you would start getting roller dimples from carrier slam. Who knows, maybe someone has tried it okay results.

    I suggest getting the ptr ar stock adapter, this one would work with hk steel back plate and you can have hk91 buffers installed.

    Okay, I'll get the PTR adapter.

    Another question, I have a 93 backplate but missing the cup-shape feature the recoil spring rest again. Can I use this backplate? Thanks

    I do not have the original part to compare so I am not 100% sure. But considering HK put something there to support the recoil rod its probably needed, but whether using it as is will cause a problem in the short run is beyond
    my knowledge Maybe others will chime in. BTW a refinished factory hk93 backplate is $47.95 @hkparts , and they sell a new original HK backplate for $149.95(less than $150 woohoo)..

    Those are converted from surplus G3 backplates, not refinished 33/93 backplates. They work, but I find the fit looser.

    No wonder they are either painted or parked, thanks for the insight!

    Thanks for all the comments. I don't remember where I got the 93 backplate but it's better one that will go on my 53 rifle with ease. I tried a few others backplates I have all need some whacking to it on. Maybe my 53 receiver is out of spec, it was built on a SW receiver.
