Vltor EMOD A5 Stock Kit

Specially developed on request from the USMC, the A5 Combo Kit stock configuration was developed specifically for the future upgrade on the M16A4. If adopted, the newly revamped rifle would be designated as the M16A5.

The patent pending Vltor A5 configuration stock kit is not just an EMod stock with M4 components; its developed as a completely new operating system. For example, the receiver extension is longer, housing a longer and specially weighted buffer, utilizing the M16A2 action spring. The A5 receiver extension features seven adjustment positions. When totally collapsed, the EMod is at the same length if mounted to any carbine length (M4) receiver extension. When totally extended (in the seventh position), the EMod can extend to a longer length of pull than an M16A2 stock assembly.

Recently tested by a professional source, the A5 system has proven to be more reliable then the M16A2, M4 and the recently released H6 stock systems. With the use of the M16A2 action spring, the A5 system resembles the reliability and performance of the M16 fixed stock system. By having the same characteristics of the M16 fixed stock system, the A5 has shown increased accuracy and milder/smoother function, due to the constant spring rate the M16A2 spring offers. To reiterate, the A5 system offers everything the M16 fixed stock system offers, but with increased reliability and performance.

The A5 system is a superb upgrade for piston systems. Piston equipped ARs, are usually over-gassed and show excessive carrier velocities, which can lead to unreliability and decreased accuracy. As tested on numerous piston systems (such as the HK 416 platform), the A5 system has tamed such platforms and reduced the weapons rate of fire while retaining, if not increasing, the weapons reliability. Also available for the A5 system are two heavier weighted buffers for the weapon or shooter with special needs. Each heavier buffer upgrade is offered separately, but not in kit form.

To sum it up, all AR based platforms will benefit from the A5 system. If accuracy and reliability is what you desire, then the Vltor A5 system is whats required.

VLTOR A5 System December 26, 2012
Reviewer: Phil from Willington, CT United States  
I have used this system with uppers in almost every common barrel length from 7.5" to 20" and it has shown itself to be reliable, soft shooting, and a very practical upgrade for any AR-15. I plan on changing over all of my ARs to the A5 system as money allows.

Very high quality stock set September 7, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from el cajon, CA United States  
I'm very impressed with the quality of this stock, buffer tube, and assorted parts. Seems to be very well made. The stock fits onto the receiver extension easily, and has little to no play in it. The stock itself is very comfortable, and has plenty of room for storage. Also the cheek weld is very good. Unfortunately it is not yet installed on the rifle I'm building around it, so I cannot speak to the A5 system itself, but I'm hoping for a very smooth cycling and reliable rifle, all things the A5 system is supposed to bring to the table.
