heavy recoil buffer...

Any one have a link to a good deal on a msg/psg style recoil buffer...

How are these different from the std G3 ones...

Do the cheap little rubbery recoil pad inserts actually do anything?

How about the factory rubber buttpads... do these help with recoil? Do they work with the std A2 style plastic rear stock?

Thanks,

LO

Try Adam at hkparts.net. I got a MSG-90 buffer from him a couple weeks ago and he also had some 2 stage heavy buffers for sale. He ships fast too. I think he has rubber recoil buttpads also. The buffer makes a huge difference as well as the pad! The pad will go on any a2 stock.

+1 The Hk rubber butt pad is an excellent addition to the A2 stock.

Once I added the butt pad I did not feel compelled to change out the buffer.

YMMV

I was planning on doing this as well.

My ptr came with the sidefolder that I switched to a standard surplus a2 that I got for like $20 at ctd...

Now I'd like a nicer stock, buffer, and buttpad. I've been looking around at hkparts and hkspecialist and had a couple questions. Is there any discernible difference between the msg90 and 2 stage heavy buffer? I don't need to modify the stock for either of these correct? and the older recoil spring I have shouldn't need replaced?

I have a custom built 16" 91 clone with a HK21 thick rubber recoil pad, a MSG90 buffer and the most excellent Recoil Eliminator muzzle brake from JP Enterprises. With these three items installed my .308 rifle kicks like a .223 and that is no exaggeration. :D

Here is a pic showing comparisons:



The G3 heavy buffer works really well. I would suggest getting one.

Wouldn't you have to modify the buffer socket in the stock to get one of these longer buffers to work properly?

Yes. HKRyan did a great thread concerning this a couple years ago. It's in the archives and might can be found. It is post #284644 in the Long Gun Section, but I've seen no way to search and find it and I can't go to it directly. Maybe with some admin/moderator help?
