Vltor A5 buffer tube with REPR?

Postby nobama » Sat May 20, 2017 7:36 pm

Anyone running and A5 tube on their repr? I've got a 16" and was going to try the A5 tube with a carbine h2 or h3 buffer. Thanks for any help

no reason it won't. i run them on 2 LW 5.56 uppers, an M6A3 and IC SPR and in fact they need the extra spring and buffer travel offered in the A5's to tame their over gassy nature.

in my ar10 DI, i run an A5 tube with a 6.5 carbine buffer and heavy 308 spring, no problems there either. just dont run the 308 shorty buffer in an A5, use a standard ar15 carbine length buffer.

what buffer does the carbine REPR come with? weight wise...

No problem on installation at all.

I just installed an Ace SOCOM 2 stock on my REPR, which comes with its own buffer tube. No worries, even with the LWRC ambi QD endplate.
