VLTOR Weapon Systems A5 Buffers


VLTOR A5 Buffers are designed specifically for use ONLY with VLTOR A5 systems.

The Vltor A5 Buffer is a high quality component that can be used to tune the recoil impulse or cyclic rate of an AR-15 rifle equipped with the Vltor A5 Recoil System. The lighter weight of the A5H0 buffer could be beneficial for a rifle that is "undergassed" or that is experiencing short stroke cycling issues, as well as a method to increase the cyclic rate or lighten perceived recoil when used in tandem with an adjustable gas block and properly tuned.  Alternatively, the A5H4 is one of the heaviest buffers on the market, great for slowing overgassed or supressed firearms.

The H2 buffer is issued in VLTOR A5 kits.

Summary of your review

Posted by Larry | (Posted on 2/16/2021)

I had the VLTOR A5 H2 buffer in my 11.5" 5.56 gun and I was shooting it suppressed and I shoot only 77gr OTM's. I noticed that with the A5 H2 I was having to work a little more to stay on target my buddy recommended using a heavier buffer. Long story short I can run my 11.5" 5.56 like it's a 20" barrel rifle length gas system. Smooth shooting and stays on target. I recommend the VLTOR A5 H3 for any AR pistol builds or upgrades.
