At the Range: SIG Sauer SB15 Pistol Stabilizing Brace

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:

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.
