  • The Bob

    Yes… “pistol”….

  • Blake

    For those that feel that 5.56 “pistols” don’t have enough muzzle flash & report!

    Ummm, yeah, convince a LEO that that’s a “handgun” & I’ll give you a cookie.

    300 AAC BLK would make some sense in a platform like this though.

  • Rabies

    Is the Sig Brace that comfortable? or is it simply because I can?

    Also don’t forget 308 pistols aren’t new.

    • echelon

      Can’t say that I’ve used one with a .308 platform and I certainly wouldn’t actually strap it to my arm, but used up against my shoulder as an impromptu stock, yes it is quite comfortable.

      I use a KAK buffer tube that has a longer LOP and spacers and it makes it very user friendly and it doesn’t slip or move around at all.

      • Rabies

        I hadn’t heard of the KAK buffer tube, thanks for the reply

        • echelon

          No problem. I think Sig and Phase 5 Tactical are also making the buffer tubes with the built in extension now as well, but to my knowledge KAK is the only one offering spacers…could be wrong though.

    • They aren’t uncomfortable—

    • Jon556

      Its comfortable enough. I run mostly Magpul stocks (CTR, STR) on my AR15’s, and my AR pistol with the Sigbrace is comfortable enough to shoulder.
      Its not very comfortable when strapped to your forearm though, but you don’t really have to do that.

    forget the whole modern concept of why we use 7.62mm NATO still. Its meant for precision long range shooting and you will not get that from a pistol waste of time a nice 20-24 inch AR-10 would be better.

  • dannye

    Mmmm, 7.62×39 ballistics with more muzzle flash and blast.

  • Michael R. Zupcak

    Classified as a handgun…lol…but who am I to question the ATF?

  • Michael R. Zupcak

    According to Frank DeSomma at Patriot Ordnance Factory (the CEO), 12″-barreled .308’s perform very well (accuracy-wise, anyway). Considering this platform uses direct gas instead of the short-stroke piston on a POF-308, it could be even more accurate.

    As for the pistol classification goes, I’m sure we wouldn’t be seeing it on a .308 if it weren’t for SIG’s ingenuity.

  • Guest

    Anyone know if it’s legal to trim off some of the flaps on the arm brace as seen in the picture?

    The argument would be that I have smaller wrists, but I think it would look better too.

  • Michael R. Zupcak

    Anyone know if it’s legal to trim the flaps on the arm brace as seen here? I have smaller wrists and I also think it would look better.

    • Ben

      No it’s not legal. If you check out the Military Arms Channel’s video on these on youtube they go into detail about why that would be a bad idea.

      The tl;dr of that vid is that by modifying the brace you are making it incapable of it’s original function. You can use something in a different manner than what it was designed for (which is how everone uses the arm brace), but once you modify something you show deliberate intent of breaking the law; in this case creating an unregistered SBR.

      • Michael R. Zupcak

        That’s the reply I expected. Man, I wish they would just take SBR’s off the stupid registry.

  • popejoe

    Negates the need for flashlight when firing at night?

  • Todd

    Why not just make the barrel 16 inches and release it with a real stock? The loss of accuracy from 16 to 12 inches outweighs any benefits from reduced length simply because it ain’t that short.

    • Duray

      Why would there be a loss of accuracy? A 12″ barrel is stiffer than a 16″ barrel of the same construction.

      • Porty1119

        I think Todd means loss of velocity. These damn things waste a huge amount of energy with the stubby barrels.

  • John Yossarian

    Only 1″ shorter than DSA’s FAL OSW, which is also chambered in 308. The Noveske “flaming pig” on the end is likely essential to reliable cycling.
