Does anyone know of a NOS source for a buffer for my Colt 1921 TSMG? I assume that a 1928 type buffer would work as well.


Thanks

If you are talking about just the nonmetallic buffing disks for the ‘21; they are available from Glen Whittenberger or SRT Arms.

I don’t know of a source for ‘21 buffer assemblies or steel parts.

If you want a hybrid system that will allow you to use the ’28 buffer disk with the ’21 spring- I have those in stock.

Ole' Gordon might start making these thingys too.

They will be unmarked and only cost around $2,000.00 I'm sure.

All I'm looking for is the buffer disk itself, as the spring and rod are there. Can you give me contact information for either of your sources?

I don't know if this guy is good or otherwise, or if what he sells is absolute reproduction junk.

21/28 Buffer Disks for 8.00

Anyone have any experience with the seller or product (he has plenty of actions for this)?

Chris.

1921 and 1928 buffers are two different animals.

the 1921 buffer is a stack of about 20 .45" diameter discs. The 1928 buffer is one wider disc.

We have made some two piece urethane 1921 buffer sets that replace the stack of fiber discs.
