SIG SAUER’s statement posted just a little while ago, but the company with real skin in the game regarding the ATF’s new stance on AR pistol braces is SB Tactical. SBT manufacture all of the pistol arm braces, and SIG SAUER distributes them (alongside others in other formats). Alex Bosco from SB Tactical has been nice enough to give the readers at TTAG a peek into their plan for action before anyone else in the world, and here it is. . .
SAINT PETERSBURG, FL – SB Tactical issues the following statement for attribution to Alex Bosco, Founder, CEO and Inventor of the SB Tactical Stabilizing Brace:
“The Stabilizing Brace was conceptualized to assist a disabled war veteran in shooting the AR pistol the way that it was intended; safely and accurately. The finalized design is for people with limited mobility due to a handicap or the lack of strength to fire AR pistols in compliance with the Gun Control Act.
Thousands of individuals have been physically empowered by the Stabilizing Brace to better control and safely handle shooting a pistol, including law enforcement officers, border patrol agents and veterans.
The ATF has been inconsistent in their approach to this accessory. As the Inventor of the Stabilizing Brace, the product has never been ‘designed or redesigned, made or remade, or intended to be fired from the shoulder.’ The latest opinion issued prohibits people from freely using a legal product, restricting how shooters position the pistol, and is contrary to the intent and statutory language enacted by the U.S. Congress.
SB Tactical continues to consult with industry leaders and other critical stakeholders on next steps in this process.”
About SB Tactical – SB Tactical LLC developed and manufacturers the Stabilizing Brace for the AR15 and AK47 weapons platforms.

SB Tactical currently offers two Stabilizing Braces, the SB15 and SB47, for the AR15 and AK47 respectively. New Stabilizing Braces for additional weapons platforms are under development.
