A lightweight buttstock for SG5-K submachine gun. — In-game description

The SG5-K Lightweight Buttstock is a weapon attachment for the SG5-K in DayZ Standalone. Like all buttstocks, the SG5-K Lightweight Buttstock reduces the weapon's dispersion cone, increasing the overall accuracy of the SG5-K. While the SG5-K Lightweight Buttstock does provide an accuracy bonus to the SG5-K as of 1.04 it does not actually fold or provide any additional functionality.

  • The model in-game for the SG5-K Lightweight Buttstock is a Choate Machine & Tool side-folding stock for the MP5K-PDW. The stock can be folded to the right of the weapon to reduce the length of the weapon, although this feature is absent in-game.
  • In the 1.16 update, all the Folding Buttstocks were renamed to Lightweight Buttstocks.
