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.
I don’t own an aeroplane, and couldn’t land it on a boat if I did. I can’t see a reason to own a tail hook?
Some people do not want to SBR a Pistol. Some people do not want the crossing state lines with an SBR hassle. A brace is a very nice option for those people.
I for one, live very close to a state line and find myself crossing said lines several times a week for work, play, errands etc. Being able to cross it while carrying a “pistol” in my possession without the need for a permission slip from the government is THE reason why I have a Tailhook, a Shockwave, and an SB Tactical. Because, I love pcc’s and I hate government intrusion in my life.

Weak! You got no skillz and no game!
Get you a tailhook and a kickboard with a hook mounted with duct tape and gorilla glue and then practice jumping on that joker from the edge of the pool/river/lake.
Your call sign will be Maverick.
Perfect for the naval officer accused of sexual harassment in the early ’90s who likes shooting PCCs.
Sorry, ill wait for the more reasonablely priced tailhook knockoff.

Should be available on Amazon soon for about $50 with 57 of 57 reviews giving it 5 Stars and a glowing recommendation in semi-intelligible Sino-English.
Someone needs to make something like this for the USW…
We have a USW completed but also have paperwork in with the ATF on it…
So I went to the tech smith link in this article and it didn’t take me to this product. I searched everywhere online and just cannot find it, do you happen to have a new link or phone number I can call to order one of these with Mike? Thanks, I greatly appreciate it.
