Bravo Company Manufacturing A5 Intermediate Buffer System
Out of Stock
The Intermediate Buffer System takes advantage of an improved design for use on the AR-15 platform. This system aids in lowering bolt carrier velocity, reduces cyclic rate, and softens felt recoil, increasing overall reliability and performance. Machined from 7075-T6 aluminum, the intermediate length receiver extension includes an M16 rifle action spring and VLTOR A5 buffer.
NOTE: This system is not interchangeable with carbine length components.

Ratings & Reviews
Great system needs heavy buffer
by Brruce -
Primary does an excellent job, shipped very quickly and great prices. I really like the A5 buffer system and it is one of the best upgrades you can make. I just have no idea why BCM uses the lightweight buffer. Veltor recommends the H2 as the default to start with. I bought an H3 regular buffer that was on sale just for the tungsten weights. You can get this set and change 2 of the steel to tungsten and you are good to go. BCM is usually on the money when they spec a part out but really missed on this. If it was an h2 would be 5 star. I also bought a spinco green spring to go with this. I did not try the stock one but sprinco springs are the way to go on everything.
Good Buffer System But Needs Heavier Buffer Options
by William -
The A5 system is the best receiver extension on the market for an AR right now. The only thing keeping this kit from being perfect is that it ships with a very light buffer, meaning you'll have to buy a heavy one to get your rifle to run at its best. It's still a worth buying as it is right now, but just be prepared to pay for the right buffer. If they gave you the option of buying it with the buffer weight of your choice it would be perfect.

Installed this on a Daniel defense M4A1 build and it functions reliably with any ammo 5.56 or 223 I would highly recommend this product!!!!

Put this on a 6.5 grendel, seems to function fine, can't really comment on it taming the recoil or anything as the rifle was never shot with a regular carbine buffer system. But I can say it cycles nice and smooth and consistently puts the brass in a nice little pile. Its an 8 position buffer tube but the holes are rather close so its kind of difficult to not slide past the one you might want. Other than that, its very well made, I would recommend it to anyone whose looking for a smoother functioning buffer tube assembly.
