SIG SB15 Stabilizing Brace to be Available in Kit Form Only?

Osage County Guns is reporting via their Facebook page and blog that they have been informed by Sig Sauer that the SB15 Stabilizing Brace will only be available in kit form soon. The kit will include the SB15, buffer tube, buffer, recoil spring, and locking nut and the MSRP will $239-$249. It should be noted that Osage County Guns is one of the most prolific retailers of these braces.

Sig is the only game in town when it comes to these braces but there are already other devices out there lining up to compete with the SB15. This seems like it could be a very unpopular move, especially since Sig’s current buffer tube is light years behind those offered by KAK, MI, Exos Defense, Phase 5, and others. I own two SB15s and probably wouldn’t have purchased them if it meant I had to pay for a bunch of other stuff (everything but the SB15 itself) that I won’t use.

I guess I will be surprised if, when the dust settles, the SB15 is actually discontinued as a stand-alone product but you never know.

Update: I have been told by a few friends of JTT (and esteemed commenters below) that the kit will ship with a Phase 5 buffer tube. That is good news given that Phase 5 has a well proven track record with AR pistols. As good as their buffer tubes are, I will still miss being able to purchase the SB15 separately and choosing my own buffer tube and other components.

    From what I was told from my wholesaler, the brace will come with the Phase 5 buffer tube

      100% accurate. CEO of Phase 5 said so last week on our show~

    Sig is going to offer the Kit with the Phase 5 buffer tube not their own when they do this.

    Thanks gents. I appreciate your input! That is what I am hearing too.

    the new sbx brace should still be sold standalone. it is sleeker and looks better.

      This applies to the SBX too.

    Stupid move by SIG. I would just go SBR for that kind of money.

    I sure hope it’s this one from Phase 5.

    here is a quote from their site
    Working closely with Sig Sauer™ the Phase 5 Hex-2™ was a special project that involved a number of firearms instructors, law enforcement professionals and AR Pistol enthusiasts alike. While asking questions along the way and updating the design based on the recommendations given by all; the Hex-2™ has become the perfect component for any AR pistol build.
    On my last build, by the time I bought a KAK SB-15 collard buffer tube and collars, spring, buffer, castle nut and a good sling mount latch plate I paid an additional $100 bucks anyway. I would buy the kit for my next build. Definitely cheaper and easier than paying for an SBR and all the headaches that go with it.

    Does anyone know what kind of end plate these new kit’s with come with if they come with any at all?
