NEW!! Shockwave Blade 2.0

Its crazy to think how far AR Pistol braces have come over the past few years. At a time where most AR Pistol brace options are getting bigger and more expensive, its nice to see someone coming out with an more compact and more affordable option. One of my favorite AR Pistol brace solutions is the original Shockwave Blade. Today we get to meet the Shockwave Blade 2.0.

Today, Shockwave is proud to introduce the all-new, compact Blade 2.0 for AR-15 pistols. This version of our highly successful Blade pistol stabilizer is even smaller and lighter—and more versatile—than the original. Injection-molder of high-strength glass-reinforced polymer, the Blade 2.0 assures durability.

The patent-pending Shockwave Blade 2.0 mounts to a proprietary carbine-style buffer tube, manufactured by KAK Industry. Blade 2.0 features a slim, low-profile design and a steel adjustment lever for changing the position of the pistol stabilizer on the buffer tube with just a finger. A standard sling slot allows users to safely carry their firearm when on the move.

Blade 2.0 is ATF-approved. In a letter from Tech Branch dated October 31, 2017, the ATF opined that “attaching the Shockwave Blade pistol stabilizer to an AR-type handgun alone as a forearm brace does not make a[n] NFA weapon.” The letter goes on to caution users against making any changes to the Blade 2.0, including a host of generic brace alterations—some of which obviously don’t apply to the Blade 2.0. A copy of the 8-page ATF opinion letter is available here.
