As I work to complete my next AR pistol I’m considering using a Sig SBX brace. Part of this is to be different as my last build I used the Shockwave blade stabilizer. Another reason is the recent ATF correspondence to SB Tactical who manufactures the Sig brace. The ATF clarified that shouldering the Sig Brace does not “redesign” the firearm resulting in a felony charge to the shooter. Legally this is a plus although there is a significant controversy if the ATF’s letter truly only relates to the Sig Brace.

AR pistol, Sig brace, Sig, SBX

On second thought I may stick with the KAK Shockwave. That Sig Brace is ugly. Hmmmm……

Maxine Watters is at it again“[Carson] knows nothing about the mission of HUD,” Waters said in a speech at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. “He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.”
