Do all Hk 93/33 stocks have buffers in them?

No not all do. Some require the use of a buffered carrier.

Can we use both a buffered stock and buffered carrier?
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 8:20:57 AM EST
yes. The buffer in the stock is in the center, while the buffer in the carrier is offset.

The old style convex butt "grenade launching" collapsible stocks do not have buffers.

The new style concave butt collapsible stocks have a buffer.

The A2 stocks with metal back plates have a buffer.

The all plastic A2 stocks do not have buffers.

To add to Osprey's posting, there are a few convex butt "grenade launching" collapsible stocks on the market with buffers. These are G3(7.62x51) stocks that Vector has "cut-down" to fit on their line of 93/53(5.56x45) rifles. Just wanted to give a heads-up, so that no one will get confused.

This is what I'm doing on my build, but I'm using a PTR stock (for compliance part). I have already cut a G3 backplate and removed the recoil rod. So, I am interested to know;

- will the G3 buffer work with a -93 bolt carrier? If I use a buffered carrier, does the stock buffer even work? If not I'll pull it out and make a cover plate.

- the recoil rod on a -93 is free floating, now that I have removed the G3 fixed recoil rod, do I need to weld up that hole for the -93's recoil rod?

sorry if I'm hijacking this thread.

Yes

The plunger in the carrier is longer than the the plunger in the stock, so no, the stocks buffer doesn't really come into play.

If not I'll pull it out and make a cover plate.

No real need to do that, unless you just want to tinker with it.

- the recoil rod on a -93 is free floating, now that I have removed the G3 fixed recoil rod, do I need to weld up that hole for the -93's recoil rod?

That would depend on the diameter of the hole. On some stocks a hole acts as a retaining "cup" for the recoil rod to nest in, others (metal back plate A2) have an actual cup welded on.
