The RipBrace features CMMG’s FASTBACK Technology that allows users to simply pull straight back to extend the brace without pressing a release lever or button like most adjustable AR arm braces employ.  This instant deployment is a one-of-a-kind feature that makes the RipBrace an optimal choice for any AR pistol designated for personal defense.

This revolutionary brace also has personal position presets (P3 Technology) that allow users to adjust a screw into different adjustment holes to ensure the stock extends to the same preferred position each time. This revolutionary brace is exceptionally lightweight, has ambidextrous functionality and is ATF Compliant.

Two different variations of RipBrace will be offered:

Micro/CQB RipBrace

The micro version of the RipBrace is the ideal option for pistol caliber carbines and any AR pistol in which minimizing overall length is a priority. It has five personal preset positions for a customized stopping point when extended. The MSRP is $199.95.

Kit Includes:

-CMMG Compact RipBrace
-Fastback Adjustable 5-Position Tube
-P3 Indexing Screw
-Spring and Buffer
-Ambidextrous Sling Plate
-Castle Nut

Standard RipBrace

The full-sized version of the RipBrace is 1.25″ longer (when fully extended) than the compact version.  It is the ideal option for larger caliber AR pistols and for shooters who prefer more length to acquire a comfortable shooting position. It has six personal preset positions for a customized stopping point when extended.  The MSRP is $199.95.

Kit Includes:

-CMMG RipBrace
-Fastback Adjustable 6-Position Tube
-P3 Indexing Screw
-Spring and Buffer
-Ambidextrous Sling Plate
-Castle Nut

    I like all these braces and thumbing noses at the ATF’s nonsense but what’s with them all costing so much? An adjustable buffer and stock combo is like $70. Fewer adjustments and a velcro band nobody uses makes it worth $100 more?

      It’s all the R & D that went into it…😂🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    2. avatar TomT says:

      Was thinking the same thing. I believe e-file NFA turn around times are what, 2 weeks now? So for $200 and right now I am seeing Magpul collapsible stocks on primary arms or right around $50. So for $250 you get an SBR with the ability to have a collapsible stock, you can modify the stock if needed and not worry if a strap/sticker/etc could modify it illegally, and not have an uncomfortable stock that was designed to skirt around a law. Some of these braces are $250 if not more. I guess I can understand when the turn around time for e-file and mail in was like a year or more. But now it doesn’t make much sense to me.

    I like to hit as many data points as possible with every purchase. Is this available in a bumpstock configuration?

    1. avatar Bacon says:

      it wouldnt be a stock.

      it would be a bumpbrace.

  3. avatar kahlil says:

    I don’t have or plan to own an AR format pistol, but what is the velcro for…I get that some form of lashing has to be there but is the brace supposed to be velcroed to the arm somehow? I’ve never seen one used or modeled before.

    1. avatar Jean-Claude says:

      The brace is split at the bottom. You’re supposed to let it wrap around your forearm,then tighten the strap down so you can shoot one-handed.

    It be ATF compliant until it isnt.
    For half the price Id buy an AR pistol and then the brace. But until then. No thanks. $200 buys me lots O lead.

  5. avatar FreakinPeanuts says:

    Optics planet has the SBA3 for $105.00 right now. I have an SBA3 and I love it, but i’m just not going to spend $200 on one of these for my next pistol build.

    1. avatar TexasPride says:

      I got mine, also a SBA3, two weeks ago from Primary Arms for $<90. No way in hell is that new feature worth over a hundred bucks.

      Can't wait for them to go on sale again, I'll put the next one on my Glock with an Endo adapter.

  6. avatar Owen says:

    Looks identical to the SBA3. I wonder if CMMG just licensed the SBA3 and is selling under a different name?

    1. avatar Owen says:

      If you look close the micro looks like they just sawed down the regular version. Hmmm

      The P3 Indexing Screw is new and it includes more that the SBA3. SBA3 is just brace and receiver extension. CMMG adds
      -Spring and Buffer
      -Ambidextrous Sling Plate
      -Castle Nut

    lmao pahlez

  8. avatar Solo says:

    Whatever it is, it’s molded from an SBA3. I mean, it’s identical. Whether it’s licensed or cloned (with changes) it’s evident that it was derived from an SBA3.

    I mean the form 1 is $200….
