I really enjoy shooting my B&T TP9, which I reviewed here. I haven’t registered it as an SBR yet. I’m just not convinced it’s going to stay in my permanent collection. The main reason: its proprietary suppressor is just too expensive to use on only one weapon. Sure it’s a great suppressor, but if I’m going to spend $1,200 plus tax plus more tax on a 9mm can, I want to use it one more than one gun . . .
I decided to hang onto the TP9 a little longer when I heard Tech Smith Mfg is making a Tailhook brace adapter for B&T pistols. Now that I have a good option to install a stabilizer brace I might be able to overlook the suppressor issue and just shoot it loud.
The Tech Smith brace adapter works on a wide range of B&T pistols: TP9, MP9, GHM9, KH9, and the P26.
I spoke with Mike at Tech Smith at SHOT. As a B&T fan, he’s passionate about making a product that aligns with B&T quality.
To make the Tailhook adapter, Mike uses factory B&T stocks and modifies them to accept a Gear Head Works Tailhook.
Like anything else B&T-related, it’s not cheap. $205.99 to be exact. However, the B&T stock alone runs about $160, so you’re really only paying another $45.99 for the modified version, which in the B&T world equals about two thirds the cost of one magazine.
You’ll also need to buy a Gear Head Works Tailhook, which runs $119. Mike from Tech Smith Mfg was nice enough to loan me a Tailhook adapter for my TP9. Review pending. SPOILER ALERT: I may end up keeping my TP9 after all.
