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

    A5 Buffer, nuff said.

    Posted by William on 3rd Dec 2019

    SKD seems to be the only place in stock (as of Nov 12) and the item arrived in a timely manor. I would like to see heavier buffers available, but when no one else has any buffers, I'll deal with an H1. And, in fairness, I wouldve bought an H1 anyways, I'm just now seeing I need an H2 or H3 to improve the build. No fault of SKD.

    Amazon prime style shipping!

    SKD just happen to have the gear I needed to complete my VLTOR A5 kit. All parts arrived, parts look great, everything fits just fine. But let me just say, I got Amazon prime type processing and shipping from SKD. I'm a fan!

    A5 at a legit price point

    Posted by Alex Hart on 14th Mar 2019

    Not much to say about quality of the Vltor A5 buffers - they’re good to go every time. SKD has the best price I could find and shipped them quick. Win win, positive experience all around.

    I have only ran about a magazine through my sbr so far. There is a notable softer recoil with the new setup. Great job guys on these setup.

    a5 H1 buffer 1st purchase

    Posted by Josh on 25th Jan 2019

    Shipping was faster than expected, came with a target printed on the invoice. Great idea. A5 buffer was in factory packaging, no issues there. 1st a5 system for me and does have a better feel when charging, fairly quiet with standard rifle spring. Using in Aero m4e1 with magpul UBR 2. Have not shot it yet and will submit another review if it makes me a believer.
