VLTOR A5 Buffers

For the operator that requires a specially weighted buffer or wants to fine tune their weapon, the VLTOR A5 buffers come in five unique weights. These buffers are only compatible with other VLTOR A5 products.


  • VLTOR patented design
  • Body of the buffer is 7075 T6 aluminum
  • Mil-Spec Type III clear hard coat anodized

1. Can I use these buffers in a carbine receiver?
No, the VLTOR A5 buffers are only designed to work with the A5 receiver extensions (RE-A5 and RE-10/A5SR). Attempting to use these parts in a regular carbine receiver extension will result in damage to the firearm and potential injury to the operator.

Weights for the A5 buffers:

  • A5H0: 3.80oz
  • A5H1: 4.56oz
  • A5H2: 5.33oz
  • A5H3: 6.08oz
  • A5H4: 6.83oz

    Good customer service. Had a issue with the mailing address (my fault) but emailed them and received response very quickly and issue was resolved satisfactory.

    H1 For Light Loads

    Posted by Keith Lankford on 23rd Feb 2021

    I've been running an H3 but had a supply of lighter load ammo that was not cycling well on mid-length rifle that has the A5 system when used unsuppressed. Changed to the H1 and it's cycling correctly.

    A5 buffer kit

    Posted by Tim on 4th Aug 2020

    I ordered the kit with spring for my 6.5 creedmoore. My bolt won't stay back with empty magazine. I tried a shorter buffer and and it will stay back, but I am worried that if I change buffer I will lose the advantage of a5 setup.

    These are vaporware on a good day. Item was shipped quickly, especially given the circumstances. Will shop with SKD again in the future.

    Fast shipping and great buffer

    Posted by Mike Marshall on 13th Apr 2020

    Item came super quick and buffer was perfect. Used this to finish off a 14.7 build with green spring and vltor buffer tube. Might try this setup on a 16” build.

    The best

    Posted by Charles Osborn on 6th Mar 2020

    These buffers are the best and are hard to find. I bought this buffer for an Ar 6.5 Creedmore with 24 inch barrel. I had to use the BCM A5 buffer tube, because Vltor was unavailable. Also a sprinco rifle length regular strength spring. Good combination, works well with little recoil. SKD had fast shipping, just wish they had more available, but no one does. Thanks SKD

    Great, heavy buffer. A little pricey for what it is but SKD had it in stock. Arrived in about a week. Good product, good service. Thank you

    Super fast shipping and a great product. I know when I do business with SKD I'm getting what I want when I want it.
