The B&T Blog: Featuring Custom Smith MFG

by Pete

Hello everyone, my name is Pete and its been six weeks since my last B&T post (although my brother in arms Erik B. has been doing a stellar job of keeping us updated about B&T products in the EU). Even so, I feel it’s time I fell off the wagon to talk about Custom Smith MFG – a company manufacturing simple but usable products for B&T firearms.

Most of the products designed and crafted by Custom Smith focus on bringing pistol stabilizing braces to popular models like the TP9, APC9, and GHM9. Using original B&T parts, the company adds their own adapters for stock attachments like the Tailhook PSB, many of which are 3D printed in-house.

Although instructions are provided with each kit, Custom Smith highly suggests using their modification service as some of the Torx screws are a bit tight and can be stripped without the right persistence.

Not an owner of a B&T firearm? No worries, they offer gear for H&K-style brace adapters and other parts. So if you are waiting on your tax stamp or better yet have no plans for one, a visit to Tech Smith might be worth your time.

Custom Smith AFG TP9 Mini

This is a Tech Smith MFG AFG specifically made for the B&T TP9 (USA) Import. Small and useful, it is an excellent addition to your TP9 pistol especially if you are running a Tailhook. This attaches using the same mount holes that the TP9’s 3 O’clock Rail attaches with. Remove the Rail and attach with the supplied hardware.

  • Compatible with: B&T TP9 Pistol (USA)
  • Required Modification: Yes – Field Strip Disassembly of the firearm is needed to access the screws to remove the rail. No Fitting required. This is a Drop-In Replacement.

Custom Smith TP9 AFG MAX

Tech Smith has made a new AFG MAX for the TP9. The AFG MAX comes in 3 versions. Each version feels the same but is meant for different firearms. This is one of the most comfortable AFG’s out there and gives the shooter additional control when needed.


  • TP9 Pistol
  • TP9-N Pistol
  • TP9-N SBR

MP5 Telescopic TailHook Adapter (Stock Conversion Required)

This adapter can ONLY be used with a converted 4 position MP5 Telescopic Stock. The conversion process removes 1 position and shortens the length leaving it at a finished state of 12.5 inches for LOP.

  • This has been measured out and worked on ATI 4 Position stocks- there is no guarantee it will work on other brands.
  • It is HIGHLY recommended that our Custom Modification service is used however customers are welcome to modify their own stock. Instructions will be provided.
