I only know of the Vltor A5 tube and their buffer system.

@emulzhn you get any more info on this? I heard they have a set up similar to Vltor but IDK if it's exactly the same spec. 

no... but am deciding that I may just obtain what works.. instead of purchasing but only to return... 

saw a couple so far at Ar15.com

https://www.ar15.com/forums/Equipment-Exchange/WTS-Vltor-5-Position-Buffer-Tube-not-A5-and-2-end-Plates/119-1960123/

and this one.. but sold...

https://www.ar15.com/forums/equipment-exchange/Vltor-a5-pistol-tube-sbm4/119-1959063/

but also a new one ..

https://botach.com/sb-tactical-sba4-pistol-stabilizing-braces/

listed at $90 once registered...

@emulzhn Getting the A5 buffer tube is easy. Getting the A5H2 buffer itself is the harder part. Look for that first. Spring will also be easy. 

you mean this or this although 2nd is not VLTOR... or even this 

this even specifies weight... OH BTW, what is the recommended weight for this build? 

 

but been reading and .... I'm not so convinced that an VLTOR system is necessary...

outside NJgunforums sources...  some say that it does improve cycling as some describe it as a softer and tamed ... more reliable and pleasant...

then again, most are running FA and duty ... which I'm far from ... as I'm just plain Joe Schmoe with a desire ...and live behind the lines ... without FA access.  

Unless tube diameter is not physically possible to fit into tube itself... not likely.. 

gonna try  what I have at my disposal.... and if cycling is a problem.. then purchase..

My priority is LEGALITY... OAL length criteria.. without pinning... 

           

       Context aside... sorry all, don't mean to hijack as I do know this is a PIcture thread Post... but will post my findings and results... 

nonetheless...   informative discussion is appreciated...

n Black Friday. Adams Arms PZ upper, since I feel piston runs better with shorter barrels (may eventually suppress it, which is another plus for piston). SBA3 brace, MOE-K grip, KVP linear compensator, and a SIG ROMEO 5 on LaRue mount. MS4 sling, as well.

Just wondering what you think of the KVP comp.  Thanks.

I have the BCM Intermediate Receiver Extension A5  kit with spring and buffer on my 14.5  BCM build. I have staked the castle nut so not taking it off but did put a tape measure to it from as close to the lower receiver as I could . so the installed measurements are what you are getting give or take 1/16 or so. H ope this helps

tried to find information on bayonet lugs and others. I know we can have "flash" hiders but not sure about the evil Bayonet lugs. Any information would be helpful

Because it is a “firearm” it is not subject to any of the restrictions that a rifle is.

You must, however, ensure that your “firearm” meets the criteria of a firearm in order to be exempt. I.e. OAL minimum 26”, VFG, no stock.

I’m sure someone will chime in if any of this is incorrect, but that is the way I understand it. IANAL

If it was not transferred as an other to begin with or it started with a receiver that was transferred as an other and built from there to meet the other specs-No. A non-other cannot become an other.

Have a FFL take the SP5 and put a stock on it to make it a rifle. Then pin a fake suppressor to the barrel to get 16". 

Or there are MP5 clone builders out there that could build you a clone as "other" or an AOW

You can take something otherwise classified a pistol and turn it into an other, You would need an 07FFL to "remanufacture" the firearm so it is no longer a pistol tho, thats just for NJ.

 

People take pistols and slap vfg on them all the time if they are over 26OAL, in Merica.

anyone know or can ask a dealer friend if they can bring in a hk sp5 with a pinned SBT5A brace and a forend that will accept and come with a vertical foregrip to make it an "other firearm" ???
