SB Tactical‘s pistol arm brace concept has had a profound impact on the firearms market; it single-handedly (pun intended) saved the AR-15 pistol from obscurity. Up to now, the pistol arm brace has been a one-size-fits-all (or not) accessory. A letter from the ATF [click here to view]] changes that, A-OK’ing an adjustable versions of the brace. The new SB braces not only work better — for multiple shooters — but also look dead sexy. SB Tactical’s pre-NRA Con press release [after the jump] was short and sweet, but the pictures tell the tale . . .
The new collapsible version of the brace appears to be a finished and complete product on the SIG SAUER MPX. Which makes perfect sense, as SIG SAUER was the first company to embrace the original design. It completes the aesthetic appeal of the firearm and make it look oh so much better.
Their MPX can be clunky and front-heavy to fire as a pistol. With the added SB Tactical brace it balances out the gun and makes it much easier to shoot. The new collapsible brace will be on display at the NRA Convention this weekend, we’ll go get our hands on it and report back.
