At the Range: SIG Sauer SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace

by G&A Online Editors   |  June 17th, 2013 4

Shooting an AR-15 pistol doesn’t have to look and feel awkward. Originally developed for a disabled veteran, the new SIG Sauer SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace adds ergonomics to the AR-15 pistol platform.

The SB15 slides onto an existing AR-15 pistol buffer tube, and then straps to your forearm. People who otherwise couldn’t use an AR-15 pistol, can now consider one for hunting and plinking.

However, the brace doesn’t make it much easier to shoot an AR-15 pistol with iron sights. You should consider adding red-dot optics to make any pistol easier and more fun to shoot.

Cleared for civilian sale by the ATF, the SB15 does not require any NFA paperwork to obtain or install. The Sig Sauer SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace comes to the market at $139. The editors at G&A went to the range with Jarrod McDevitt from SIG Sauer to test the new brace:

  • Flavio De Moraes

    I can see uneducated LEO’s harassing users because they think it converts the pistol into an SBR.

    • BusPass

      It’s even worse; when I told Diamondback Police Supply in Tucson Arizona that I wanted to buy a buffer tube for my P556 for this purpose, they refused to sell one to me…the idiot behind the counter first said “I don’t know if you are an ATF agent” and then said they didn’t want to operate in the “grey zone.”

      I asked him if it was illegal, and he conceded that it wasn’t, but he couldn’t give me a rational reason not to sell me a buffer tube.

  • Daniel Destruye

    Seriously, Sig? Serious? I would expect this type of tomfoolery from the fine gentleman over at Red Jacket Firearms. Seeing as this has “nevah bin dun befoe”, I would only assume that this novel idea escaped their genius think tank and SIg, not CAA or some airsoft joint, but Sig decided to slap their name on it.

  • Cymond

    What, so Sig is dictating how we hold (or mishold) our guns, now? Yes, it is intended to be used as a stabilizer, but a gun’s classification does not change based on how you hold it.
