The other day, everyone’s favorite deadbeat Dad (the ATF 😜) decided to change their mind and finally give all of us AR Pistol owners permission to shoulder our SB15 Sig Brace again …. as if any of use were asking for permission in the first place. This came after representatives for SB Tactical, the designers of the SB15 Brace, requested sent a letter to the BATFE asking for them to reconsider. You can read all about that specific change here. This change brought up a lot of confusion as to whether or not it also applied to the many other “Pistol Braces” on the market from other companies such as my personal favorite, the Shockwave Technologies Blade. I’m happy to say that the ATF says it does apply to other braces too. Read below!

KAK Shockwave Blade on AERO Precision Pistol

Our friends at Shockwave contacted the ATF themselves to get clarification on whether or not the recent reversal also applied to their Blade Pistol Stabilizer and here is what they found out…

I just got off the phone with a very nice gentleman at ATF Tech Branch—who was fielding these calls today. (He was, understandably, very well versed on the subject—and very nice about it even though he’s been on the phone all day, repeating himself ad nauseam.) I identified myself and asked him specifically if the letter that’s making the rounds is limited to one company’s products–or if it applies to all pistol stabilizing braces. He said: “The letter covers all pistol stabilizing braces, including the Shockwave Blade.” So that settles that.

He then gave me a bit of further guidance for our customers:

  1. By “permanent affixing,” ATF considers that to be adding permanent Loctite to the large set screw that secures the Blade into the dimples in the KAK tube. As long as you don’t red Loctite the set screw in place, ATF considers it to be “temporarily placed” and “perfectly okay to shoulder.” (He didn’t beat around the bush on this topic.)
  2. “Length of pull”—for lack of a better word regarding pistol braces—begins to enter a “gray area” above 13.5″. Above 13.5″ begins “to enter shoulder stock area.” (His words. I believe this has to do with the “comfortableness” aspect.) On an AR-15, the “length of pull” for the Blade is approximately 13.13″, so no issues there. But if you use the Blade on a firearm that requires a large adapter of some sort, please make sure that you only use the dimples up to the point that you remain below the 13.5″ length. Stay below 13.5″ and according to ATF, it’s okay to shoulder a Shockwave Blade.

This information was posted on the Shockwave Technologies website.  You can read it for yourself HERE. While this is just relaying information from one source based on a phone call they had with the ATF, I do know the source and trust that this information is correct. From what I’ve heard, the ATF will be issuing a letter clarifying that this covers all Pistol Braces and not just the SB-15.

If all this AR Pistol talk has got you itching to build another one, check out the KAK Industry SHOCKWAVE kits. They are pretty much exclusively what I use when building an AR Pistol and can’t speak highly enough of them.

Battle Arms Development recently introduced their new Ultra Compact Pistol Sabertube + Vert Buffer System combo which is the latest addition to their Sabertube line up. Basically what you have here is the Buffer System from BAD’s VERT PDW stock but this version is for an AR Pistol. Anymore everyone has a super short AR Pistol and at just 4.75″ long, the Ultra Compact Pistol Sabertube + Vert Buffer System seems like the perfect buffer system for those pistol builds.

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone has to shoulder their AR Pistols. 😉 I’m picturing this being an awesome setup to run with a single point sling similar to how an MP5K is fired while putting forward pressure on the sling to stabilize the firearm. The Ultra Compact Pistol Sabertube + Vert Buffer System comes complete with the 4.75″ Saber Tube, Buffer Spring and VERT buffer and is now available at www.BattleArmsDevelopment.com.

Maxim Defense, makers of the popular CQB Stock, has just announced that the CQB Pistol PDW Brace model is now available for pre-order. Maxim Defense partnered up with SB Tactical (originators of the SB-15 arm brace) to create an arm brace that is attached to the adjustable length system of the CQB Stock. This allows you to adjust the brace to the best length for each individual user and it also lets you collapse the brace to a super compact size for easier transport. If you are planning to use this product while waiting for your SBR tax stamp to come in you’ll actually be able to keep the main housing and simply swap out the brace portion for the stock portion.

Over the past few years there has definitely been a huge shift towards AR-15 grips with a more vertical angle for a number of reasons including less wrist fatigue, better shooting posture, etc. Tactical Link, a company well known for very nice slings, sling mounts and other accessories, has just announced their newest product which they are calling the Tactical Link PDW Grip for AR style rifles. The TL PDW Grip looks pretty awesome and features its own distinct texture pattern. Check out the details and pics below. 

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade for AR style rifles with a more vertical angle, optimized for short LOP (length of pull) personal defense weapons (PDW), bringing the primary hand in closer to the shooter’s body, encouraging a more natural “elbows in” shooting posture which substantially reduces wrist fatigue and is concurrent with modern shooting doctrine.

Made to the finest standards from an extremely durable fiber-reinforced polymer, the PDW Grip is the result of extensive professional shooter feedback and engineering excellence that has produced one of the finest shooting upgrades in the market today. The PDW Grip sports a patent pending design with “zones” of moderately aggressive surface texture to provide unmatched gripping properties for positive weapon control in all environments.

Tactical Link PDW AR Grip 1

The PDW Grip is compatible with most lower receiver mounting platforms (forged or billet) and provides improved biomechanics to better align the trigger finger for a more comfortable and direct rearward trigger pull. Due to its hollow core design (no internal storage), the PDW Grip weighs only 2.1 oz and since the PDW Grip is a drop-in upgrade it is sold without a grip screw.

Shooter Refined Ergonomics: at 14 degrees, the PDW Grip is 235% (19 degrees) more vertical than the standard A2 grip and is the most comfortable and relaxing grip on the marketplace. Places the hand’s flexor muscles on more of the same plane creating a more natural hand position for a more natural hand position with little to no fatigue even during prolonged use.

Optimized Biomechanics: small beavertail backstrap provides enhanced ergonomics and allows the operator’s hand to ride high on the grip for improved recoil management and fire control.

Tactile Gripping Texture: much more aggressive texture than most other grips on the marketplace. “Zones” of more aggressive anti-slip texturing on the palm panels for excellent gripping properties and for positive weapon control in all environments.

Features:
–  All edges rounded for operator comfort
–  Reinforced beaver tail for extra rigidity
–  Aggressive PSP (Pentagonal Surface Projections) Texture on both palm panels for superior weapon control
–  Grooves on the front and rear backstraps for optimal anti-slip surface and excellent gripping properties
–  Accommodates the “seam” commonly found on the beaver tail of forged lower receivers
–  Unique trigger guard design provides a very comfortable, and absolutely the best fit at the trigger guard area of any grip on the market
–  Grip “pulls” the operator’s hand forward into the grip for a more positive grip and better operational control of the weapon
–  Robust design easily exceeds industry standards for quality, strength and durability
–  100% made in USA

The Tactical Link PDW Grip is available now directly from www.TacticalLink.com and will start shipping this week! I’ll definitely be snagging one of these soon to try out on an SBR or AR Pistol.

For you Pistol Caliber builders out there….I just saw that the new Quarter Circle 10 Pistol MUR uppers are back in-stock. A few of my buddies have these and they match up very nicely to the QC10 billet lowers. The part that makes these different from other uppers is that VLTOR made these specifically for QC10 with a slick side wall with no forward assist along with a taller ejection port to allow extra ejection clearance for rounds from 9mm up to .45 ACP. If you’re looking for a great upper to complete your Pistol Caliber build, this is a great option. Check them out at www.QuarterCircle10.com.

Most of you who know who FALKOR Defense is know them as the manufacturer of some amazing rifles and gun parts such as their Mirrored Ambi AR-15/AR-10 Receiver Sets, PETRA 300WM rifle, etc. FALKOR Defense has a plan to be know for much more. Behind the scenes, their “ShadowWorks” R&D team has been creating some awesome gun accessories as well and those accessories are now starting to become available for purchase.

Most recently they have started shipping their new “MANTIS” precision bipod. The MANTIS features adjustable swivel and cant and the legs can be moved forward or back independent of each other. To extend the legs you simply pull them out to the length you need and then to retract them you just push a button and they snap all the way back in.

They have also released their new “Velocity” Glock Mag Extensions that not only add capacity to your Glock Mags but give your mags a stronger base pad and the added weight can help ensure your mags drop free when empty.

Another product they have released is their MACH-15 (AR-15) and MACH-10 (AR-10) ambi charging handles. I have one of the MACH-15’s and they are extremely well built and function perfectly.

If you’ve been paying attention at all to the AR industry you will know that two of the most popular ways to shorten the length of an AR are to either build an AR Pistol or use a PDW stock. MVB Industries, makers of one of the best PDW stocks out there, wanted to give the AR Pistol crowd some love too and has decided to create the MPK or Micro Pistol Kit. The MPK is a standalone version of the compact buffer system used in the ARC PDW Stock kit. It does not accept a stock making it perfectly legal to use on an AR Pistol. Just like its big brother, it allows you to use any mil spec BCG you want and also allows you to shotgun the upper unlike most other compact buffer systems.

MVB MPK Micro Pistol Kit 1a

For those who like a super compact AR Pistol without the desire to use any of the Pistol Stabilizing Braces/Blades, etc., this is a perfect piece to your puzzle. Comes standard with an H1 buffer but you can choose to upgrade to an H2, H3 or 9mm Buffer as well.

Thordsen Customs just introduced their new Picatinny Buffer Tube Adapter. This adapter will allow you to mount an AR Buffer Tube (pistol or carbine) to any gun with a vertical rear picatinny rail section. Guns such as the very popular Sig MPX typically come as a Pistol from the factory. The end user can now attach a buffer tube to use items such as the Thordsen Customs AR Pistol Cheek Rest Kit, Sig SB15 arm brace, Shockwave Stabilizer or if they have SBR’d the pistol they can easily add a collapsible AR-15 stock once the stamp comes back. If you’re looking for something like this, head on over to www.ThordsenCustoms.com and check them out.

Thordsen Customs Picatinny Buffer Tube Adapter 1

Thordsen Customs Picatinny Buffer Tube Adapter 1

Our new Picatinny Buffer Tube Adapter is a great addition to your Sig MPX, Sig P556XI, Rock River PDS, or any other pistol that utilizes a rear vertical picatinny rail. It gives a shooter the ability to add a cheekrest for greater stability or a stock for SBR conversions (federal tax stamp required).

The mounting method follows true STANAG (NATO Standard Agreement) protocol using the two back angles and the top of the rail as the contact points. The result is perfect alignment with the centerline of the firearm. A feature that is not attainable with typical side clamping adapters. Another bonus is that there are no visible fasteners or holes on the top and sides of the adapter for a clean sleek look.

FEATURES:

  • Compatible with multiple platforms
  • Fits any picatinny rail
  • True STANAG mount
  • Includes set screw for carbine buffer tubes
  • Engraved TC logo
  • 304 stainless steel hardware

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • 6061 T6 Aluminum
  • Type III Hard Anodize finish
  • Weight: 2.5 oz.
  • Width 1.37 inches, Height 1.4 inches
