Sig Sauer Selling Arm Brace Individually… Again

P516-7IN-SB15-Detail-Hero

After a brief hiatus as a single part, Sig Sauer has announced that it is selling the Arm Braces as individual parts. Previously, Sig Sauer had made the change that the arm brace was sold only as a complete package including extension, nut, plate, and brace.

Osage Country Guns broke it down:

Back in December we reported that Sig had discontinued stand along PSB sales. This was a serious annoyance to dealers and consumers because many don’t want the pre-packged kit (which included the buffer tube, buffer, spring, and the brace itself) because they either had the parts or wanted to use less expensive parts.

It seems that the backlash or lack of sales on the new kits has caused Sig to recant and roll back the change. Braces are once again available without having to buy a kit.

Additionally the braces are available in six configurations

  • PSB-AR-BLK – Standard brace, black

  • PSB-AR-PNK  – Standard brace, pink

  • PSB-AR-FDE – Standard brace, flat dark earth

  • SBX-AR-BLK – SBX brace, black

  • SBX-AR-FDE – SBX brace, flat dark earth

  • SBX-AR-PNK – SBX brace, pink

    How long before another flap over these? At this point I’ve seen them declared dead more times than Jason Voorhees. Yet they lumber on.

    • Anon. E Maus

      Well, you can’t (legally) use them as a stock anymore, but there’s still probably an appeal for the original intended purpose, to brace your arm, some people would genuinely have use for these if they’re not strong enough to hold up a heavy handgun, if not for mounting on an AK or AR pistol, I could see these making a lot of sense if mounts were made for something like a big old .460 or .500 revolver.

    What about that Thorsden buffer tube cover and CAA saddle? Those are still legal to shoulder, right?

    • MrEllis

      I heard it was bad to shoulder one no matter what’s on it. They just start building SBR and adding it into the cost. You order one and they start filling out the paperwork that day.

      I realize that’s facile. It just seems with the cost of one of these you’re half way to a stamp.

      • Anonymoose

        Never heard anything about shouldering buffer tubes, just “pistol braces.”

        • MrEllis

          I have bought most my guns new, so it would be no surprise to the government I own them.

        • Cymond

          Also, many places disallow SBRs, and pistols can be transported loaded by people with a CC permit. I’m sure you know that, I’m just saying it for the record.

          ATF hasn’t released a statement against shouldering a bare buffer tube (so far), but it doesn’t look like the Thordsen cover is legal to shoulder. However, the Thordsen cover hasn’t received as much publicity as the SB-15 (and is less visually distinctive), so it’s less likely to be noticed if someone does shoulder it.

        You need to actually have experienced shouldering the brace (when it was legal to shoulder) than just hearsay. I’ve owned one for a year on a AR pistol and it handled just fine, just like a basic carbine.

        I would hope the price of these braces will drop like a rock since demand is basically dead.

        • Dual sport

          Dead? I actually thought it was just the opposite. I am seeing more all the time.

    • Anonymouse

      Does it really matter? Only way your going to get buisted for this is if an agent sees you doing it or if you post vids to Youtube.

      • Anonymoose

        By that logic I could just stick a 7″ upper on my 6920 and just ngaf as long as nobody sees me. Heck, while I’m at it, maybe I should just start converting 80%s to full-retard and giving them to my friends…
        Just kidding! lol

        • Not_a_Federal_Agent

          Uh… Actually yes. Considering uppers, and every part in them aren’t serialized items and require no paperwork to purchase there is nothing stopping you from making all the SBR’s you want. FA trigger groups and mills aren’t regulated either. Nothing stopping you there either buddy.

          • Anonymoose

            Oh, I know.

          • Cymond

            I think Anonymoose’s point is that “just don’t get caught” is probably not a great basis for making decisions about what to do or not do.

          • BryanS

            Then you get into the whole concept of non aggressive defiance of unjust and nonsensical laws. Like where they “transferred” a gun in Colorado among hundreds of people, breaking the new law that re-defined transfer.

            In front of police. At the capital building.

    • Anonymoose

      Maybe I’ll just build an XOW-type generic “Title 1 Firearm.” -_-

  • Don Ward

    Woohoo! We got the trifecta of stupid firearm fads in one day, 3D guns, derringers in rifle calibers and Sig Braces. Today is gonna be good!

    • Yellow Devil

      It’s not stupid until someone writes a letter to the ATF asking “what if” questions.

  • goalie

    If there are no clear answers from the atf website check forums. Stop asking atf questions. It’s just bringing it to there attention. If i had a gun pictured above with the brace and someone breaks in no way in he’ll I won’t shoulder that thing!
