So, worth the extra money?

I'm somewhat confused. I also "have an old Fleming HK91/G3 conversion". Other than replacing the welded up bolt carrier with a surplus G3 bolt carrier, just because, it has never needed anything whatsoever. Mine is a RR PP weapon and works perfectly. It loves to eat the blue DAG training ammo using the correct training bolt from Dan's Ammo. This is one of the funnest configurations out there. Plus, it's cheap to shoot.

If I was going to shoot it I would do the following.
Discover if it is a RR or a sear that you could “unmarry” from the receiver. Google is your friend, a lot of previous discussions on this topic. My guess is you have a “married sear”. If so “unmarry” and start buying all types of Roller Locks to play with.
Replace the BC with a tungsten, plenty of them for sale. Then check your bolt gap.
Replace the stock with a HK 21 and Rubber Pad. This makes shooting a 7.62 a lot more fun.
Replace the buffer in stock with a new heavy two stage.
If the rifle is a RR send it to TPM and have them make it a G3k. If you are able to “unmarry” do a Form 1 to SBR it then send it off to shorten. The G3 is terrible unbalanced and heavy platform. If they would have started making them as a G3k in the let 60’s the rifle might be more popular.

2. Will do. Now officially looking for a tungsten BC.
3. Stock is replaced already with an SG-1 stock containing a G-3 Heavy buffer.
4. Likelier to send off to get a HK-11 barrel if they still exist. I appreciate your position on the G3K and were this a duty rifle I might agree, but it fills the niche of squad auto so in this case (within reason) heavier is better.
Still looking for someone to comment on the #17 locking piece.
