The FACTR USA Stiffy is a “transportation and storage device that fixes your flaccid pistol brace problem”. This high-strength nylon stiffener fits the SB Tactical SBA3 brace simply by loosening the strap, inserting the Stiffy, and retightening.
This 5 position adjustable brace can be installed on any pistol platform that makes use of a mil-spec carbine receiver extension (buffer tube) and a 7075 aluminum mil-spec receiver extension is included. It also features an ambidextrous QD sling socket and is available in FDE or Black.
The new SBM4 weighs about 3.25 ounces more than the SBA3 (10 oz vs. 6.75 oz). It is also slimmer in width (1.8″ vs. 2.25″).
Trinity Force will release a new pistol brace called the Breach Pistol Brace. It is designed to clamp onto a 1.25″ diameter pistol buffer tube and features multiple sling attachment slots. Like the Shockwave Blade Pistol Brace, a brace to which this is likely to draw comparisons, the toe of the Breach is very slim in keeping with its purpose as a forearm brace and not a stock.
The Breach Pistol Brace will be available soon. Stay tuned for additional details.
Lunar Concepts is teasing a new way to carry a tourniquet on your SB Tactical SBM4 Pistol Stabilizing Brace. This new version of their SwiftTQ tourniquet carrier affixes inside the brace and allows the user to quickly eject the TQ by pulling a strap from the rear of the carrier.
These are expected to be available toward the end of this week or early next week. Keep an eye on LCEquipped.com.
Gear Head Works will be releasing a new pistol brace design that is sure to grab the attention of AR Pistoleros everywhere. Their Tailhook MOD 1 and Tailhook MOD 2 feature a unique hinged design that allows the brace to “open” into a hook that slips under the shooter’s forearm to support the AR pistol for one handed shooting.
The Tailhook MOD 1 is the more compact version of the two. It is machined from aluminum and clamps directly to the buffer tube. The molded polymer Tailhook MOD 2 attaches to the buffer tube much like a stock would and allows for length adjustment to accommodate shooters of all sizes. You can see the Tailhook in action in the video below.
The two versions of the Tailhook shown here have already received ATF approval. There may be additional version forthcoming pending additional approvals.
