I have two spare buffers for my HK 21. One of them has been ground down for some reason. I used to not care, but now I am curious why the previous owner did this. Anyone have any insight? It seems to have rendered it useless for my 21.
Thanks for any info.

Cut one came from a Vollmer conversion. You need to replace the buffer bolt/nose piece Do not use that in a E gun. That was Fred's way of not properly setting up 21's in the 90s

My 21 is unfortunately not an E gun.
I dont think I will be using it all.
I might try to find the right parts and replace them.
Thanks MOAxp

You didn't mention the part about moving the cocking notch so he could use the unaltered buffer in a Vollmer 21. Or he could use the cut buffer and beat the gun to death (internal rail dimples).

True - tried to keep it simple :) I chose on my Vollmer 21 to go back to the original 21 buffer and rebuild the chop saw cut E buffer for the E series.

How does it handle with the original buffer in comparison to the Vollmer chop?

What stock do you have on your 21? Will the shorter 21 buffer work with the E stock?

Ed- Will try and snap pics. Running an original 21 buffer not the chopped 21e. I don't think one should run the stubby versions in the E series. Reduced function/ duration of contact

Right, were both talking about the original 21 buffer. That was the reason for asking what stock you were using and if it would work, I wouldn't recommend it either, but like SudS asked, I'm curious also on how it compares to the cut buffer.

I still have the PSG1 stock but never ran F/A on that stock - chalk that purchase up to one of the many HK fever impulses. The FA sear pack and a 21 (G3 profile) stock is what I have used in FA. After the right buffer was installed, never thought it was a hard/beat you gun to run. Are there softer impulse MGs yes, but the 21 is smooth and with the weight, it is plenty controllable.
