AR Pistol ( what brace )
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:42:47 PM »
What brace are you guys using on your pistol ? Throwing one together and still undecided on the brace

SBA3 is the "best" one I have seen. Its the closest in function and look to the real thing for not too bad of a cost. fits Milspec buffer tubes as well so if you do decide to go for the SBR (but why) you're all set. I current have a PDW brace on one of mine and I wish I would have waited a month for the SBA3. I bought the PDW just before that one was release. its a bit heavy for what it is and not as comfortable. looks cool though.

I've heard good things about the KAK Industry Shockwave Blade. Haven't actually used a brace yet as I have some SBRs that I waited the ungodly long wait for. I do plan on building a 300 BO pistol though.

SBA3 is the one I was thinking about going with  , was just curious if there were better options.  Supposedly after the " Splitfix " model they are extremely solid.
 Only thing I dont like about the Shockwave is the look . Also read that the lower part of it digs into you , although there is an aftermarket part (SBP Blade Protector ) you could buy that clips onto the rear to make if wider.

I really like the brace that is on the Springfield Armory Edge "Saint" pistol. Matter of fact, I like the whole package. Not into factory offerings but the "Saint" is tempting.

I have the SB SOB on my Rem Tac-14 and the Sig one that came on my Sig MCX pistol.  Other than they look a little different, I can't say that I really notice much difference between the two.

Not too bad of a cost??? It's $130 and the real thing can be had for $13 if you are building a rifle.

I would vote shockwave. I wouldn't spend too much. You might decide that you like shooting rifles better.
