There is no doubt, SB Tactical’s Stabilizing Pistol Arm Brace radically changed the US commercial market. It led to an explosion of interest in AR pistols, AK pistols and other similar pieces. People who would never bother with the paperwork to legally purchase an SBR suddenly bought an AR pistol, and then another one. The effect of the device on the market was electric.
Now SB Tactical, which is aggressively going after OEM sales with its new change in focus, has announced the BATF has approved an adjustable pistol stabilizing brace! This information was just released a couple days ago just before the NRA Show and is sure to raise some eyebrows at the possibilities. I am sure the prospects of having a collapsible stabilizer will appeal to many. Check out SB Tactical’s announcement below:
SB Tactical™, inventors and manufacturers of the Pistol Stabilizing Brace™, announced today that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), has approved the design of the company’s new adjustable Pistol Stabilizing Brace. The ruling states the adjustable brace design is approved for PDW pistol platforms like the SIG MPX™ pistol. Installation of the brace would not change the classification of a pistol in accordance with GCA provisions. The growth of the PDW pistol category and the latest ATF letter approving the adjustable Pistol Stabilizing Brace design showcases the commitment of SB Tactical to innovate and serve the PDW Pistol Community.
Upon receipt of the favorable ATF Opinion Letter, SB Tactical accelerated the development of two adjustable brace models, the MPX PSB™ and SBPDW™. The company is pleased to announce they will begin shipping these new adjustable brace models this summer.
“We are very excited with the ATF’s approval of our new adjustable Pistol Stabilizing Brace design, and understand the overwhelmingly positive implications of the decision,” said Jeff Creamer, Vice President of Business Development, SB Tactical. “SB Tactical’s commitment to emerging technologies and innovation has been the facilitator for the growing PDW pistol category. This Opinion ushers in an exciting time for us and the PDW community; we are proud to introduce the MPX PSB and SBPDW models.”
Both the MPX PSB and the SBPDW adjustable Pistol Stabilizing Braces will be displayed at the upcoming NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Louisville, KY. The MPX PSB will be showcased by SIG SAUER, Inc. (Booth 5333) and the SBPDW will be displayed by both Maxim Defense Industries (Booth 3954) and LWRC International LLC (Booth 5547).
Designed solely for the AR pistol platform, the SBPDW weighs in at 18.14 ounces, measures 5.50 inches in length, and has a max width of 2.25 inches. The MPX PSB is designed exclusively for the SIG SAUER® SIG MPX and SIG MCX line of products. The MPX PSB weighs 19.13 ounces, is 8.0 inches in length and has a max width of 2.25 inches.

So what do YOU think? Does it make you want to spend some money or would you rather just submit the paperwork for a Short Barrel Rifle and be done with it?
