    Default One more HK-93 question... Non Buffered Both and Non Buffered A3 Stock?

    One more question relating to my "IB" dated HK-93 rifle. This rifle has both a non buffered bolt and A3 stock. And I'm not in a hurry to fire this rifle, causing a forced metal on metal contact.

    My question is; Can a non buffered A3 stock be converted into a buffered stock? If so, what items would I need to purchase to complete this conversion?

    I'm hoping to send this rifle and all the needed parts to TSC for the modifications and refinishing.

    Thanks for looking and all your past assistance with all my HK questions!!

    Please take a picture of the inside of the stock. A unbuffered stock is not correct for an IB date code gun.

    Well it COULD, but would cost you way more than just finding a buffered one. It will be difficult to find all of the parts, so some would have to be made. Unless you could do it yourself or find a friend that would do it for free, you should just buy one.

    You sure the stock is non-buffered? I have seen others with IB date coded unbuffered A3 stocks, you're not the first.

    If it looks like this then it's a buffered stock. These pics are of an IS date code A3 53 stock

    One more HK-93 question...  Non Buffered Both and Non Buffered A3 Stock?-6de3e290-b460-4976-90b6-21d1b4bfca85.jpegOne more HK-93 question...  Non Buffered Both and Non Buffered A3 Stock?-f6cefaaf-d0e6-43e4-a426-c2725d205fa9.jpeg

    Attached is the second A3 stock I bought from another member here back in late January/early February... And the rifle, I bought,used, from another member back in 2007 after returning from Iraq.

    Is this HK93/33 A3 stock a buffered stock? Also, is there any value in a non buffered HK93/33 A3 stock?

    The slim hand guard was from another HK Pro member too... I tend to buy everything HK here. Btw, I been a member since 2006 (AKA: Bergun), but I forgot my password AND the old email address I used to sign up with.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Yes, the hollow round protrusion in the middle is the buffer.
