The Sig SBX Pistol Stabilizing Brace is an updated version of their original ground breaking SB15 that started the AR pistol craze. The SBX is a great brace and provides the stability to use the accuracy inherent in the AR pistol. Wither you shot .223 or a pistol caliber carbine, the SBX is a great accessory at a great price.
There has been some confusion as to the legality of the arm brace if shouldered. Sig and SB Tactical fought for clarification of some silly and self contradicting rulings. Here is the latest, if you install an arm brace per the instructions, with the intention of shooting the pistol one handed and you don’t modify it from the ATF approved configuration with an arm strap, it is not an issue if at some point later it touches your shoulder while shooting.
Confused yet? Let Adam Kraut at Legal Brief explain:
The Pistol Stabilizing Arm Brace was inspired in 2012 when inventor Alex Bosco at the range with a disabled friend who was asked to stop shooting his AR-15 pistol because of his poor control of the firearm. In 2013, Alex started SB-Tactical and came up with the SB-15 to help disabled shooters operate an AR-style pistol one-handed. The idea is simple, a flexible plastic cuff wraps around a shooter’s wrist or forearm and an integrated Velcro strap secures the brace in place.
Bosco partnered with Sig Sauer and ATF issued a ruling that the accessory was legal for pistols. The Sig Sauer SB-15 brace debuted at the 2013 National Rifle Association show. It is unusual for a major company like Sig to take on the ATF. The gun community owes a debt to Sig for pushing to expand freedom in many areas where regulators were heavy handed and narrow minded.
AR-style pistols had been around for years but were not particularly useful because they were difficult to shoot. The arm brace changed all that. There was some conflicting guidance from ATF, but Sig and SB Tactical challenged ATF;s tortured logic and the brace is in clear legal territory. Because Sig successfully brought the arm brace to market challenging the ATF, there is a wave of re-imagined pistols and shotguns. Suppressors may be removed from the NFA.
SIG SAUER now makes the SBX Pistol Stabilizing Brace, an update to the SB15 Pistol Stabilizing brace, a shooter’s aid that is designed to improve the single-handed shooting performance of buffer tube equipped pistols. The SBX features a more slim design with a thicker strap for extra stability.
This veteran-designed and U.S.-manufactured accessory enhances accuracy and reduces felt recoil when using an AR-style pistol. Made from high-quality, elasto-polymer, the SB15 is manufactured to close tolerances and fits all pistols equipped with an AR-style buffer tube 1.0″ – 1.2″ in diameter.
The Pistol Stabilizing Brace uses the operator’s forearm to provide stable support, thereby minimizing accuracy-robbing spin and shift. The brace can be positioned on the tube to match the length of the shooters arm. A flexible cuff with two adjustable nylon straps allows the SBX to be custom fit to any user.
- Fits all pistols equipped with an AR-style buffer tube 1.0″ – 1.2″ in diameter.
