Anybody run a Vltor A5 for their pistols? I am looking at using it with an 11.5 in barrel. Also I am thinking about putting an SBX Sig brace on it and was wondering how the tube worked with the brace. Thank you in advance.

I am unaware of any pistol tubes that have the proper internal dimensions for an A5 buffer.

I am referring to Vltor's pistol buffer tube for their A5 system.

I see on their website it was released this year and noticed it was compatible with most arm braces https://www.vltor.com/shop/a5-system/pistol-a5-the-vltor-a5-pistol-kit/ *Disclaimer* I am not affiliated in anyway with Vltor, I am just curious how it runs in an AR pistol setup.

I made the link hot: https://www.vltor.com/shop/a5-system/pistol-a5-the-vltor-a5-pistol-kit/

This is the first time I've seen it. Given how many people use the A5 with good success on SBR's I think it will work just fine on a pistol.

I wonder which of the three buffer tube based arm braces it is not compatible with?

That is a good question. Well I just ordered it so I will let y'all know how it works out. This was supposed to be a budget build too

Wouldn't think so, says "Length of tube from the end to the knurling: 6.45”. The knurled ring is maybe .5" at most looks like.

Both KAK SB15 tubes extend 8.45" from end of receiver or endplate.

Thanks! Guess the KAK super tube is still a bit short by 1/2" to reach the OAL of 26"?

Either KAK SB15 tube makes a 10.5" barreled AR somewhat more than 26.5", not counting muzzle device.
