Over the past few years, Palmetto State Armory (PSA) has grown to offer a wide range of firearms and accessories for every part of the market. Over time PSA has improved quality, increased output, and turned into a trusted brand with a diverse portfolio. Recently, PSA released their new Sabre lineup of well-built yet affordable duty-grade rifles to the market. Now, PSA is adding more to its Sabre lineup with the addition of the S5 length buffer kit.

The A5 system or buffer kit is originally from VLTOR and is a hybrid rifle and carbine buffer system. This system gives more flexibility to the end user by providing a smoother recoil experience and the ability to find tune stock placement, length of pull, and eye relief. The S5 is the VLTOR A5 system just with PSA parts for the kit.

The S5 kit will come with an extended buffer tube with nine stock positions, a SpringCo green spring, and a QD backplate.
