Huge news for AR "pistol" lovers. Multiple sources are reporting that the ATF released a letter stating they no longer consider shouldering a SB Tactical Brace "redesigning" the pistol as a short barreled rifle. However, this only applies to SB Tactical and not any other form of pistol brace. Modifying the pistol brace to make it more like a stock, such as removing the strap is a no go and could be considered redesigning it.

This is great, but the truth is the ATF shouldn't even exist under the US Constitution. Imagine a world with no unlawful federal regulations with unlawful federal agencies enforcing them. ;)

The ATF acts like they are doing a solid favor.

One would think this would apply towards all "pistol braces".
If one can "shoulder " a brace, using it as a buttstock, it seems reasonable there isn't much difference between a pistol brace being utilized as a buttstock and an "actual" buttstock.

There should be no such federal legislation regardless. ANY federal regulation is unlawful.

Husbands and fathers shouldn't let their wives and daughters run around town in topographic clothing, butt here we are.....meanwhile we have federal regulation that seems to be lessening or getting things more correct. I'm encouraged.

Just shifting sands...it blows with the wind, and the people just take it as if we can't do anything to stop it.

And now starts the letters to the ATF that will **** them off and reverse the reversal of the reversal.
Which wouldn't matter IF the People knew that they do not legally have to accept what illegitimate federal agencies dictate. But alas...

Show me a pistol brace a regular man can comfortably shoulder and I'll listen. One has to get all scrunched up on it to do so. Just not feasible in real world shooting.
Till then I'll continue to register them as SBRs so I can properly shoot it.
The KAK Shockwave brace with adjustable tube will extend as far as a regular M4 stock, much lighter than the SB brace as well.

Granted, it does take some adjustments, but it can be done comfortably. I did, and I'm 5'11 200lbs. Not a large man, but hardly irregular.

Would be nice to get a copy of the letter from the ATF as I've had a couple of RSO's questions my SB Tactical MPX brace.

I'm pretty sure they posted the actual letter. According to another article I read shouldering a brace was never actually illegal, the letter was aimed at people modifying there's to make it more like a stock. Some idiot apparently stuffed a rolled up towel inside of his brace then wrapped duct tape around and sent in pictures to the ATF asking if it was ok.

Thank you very much.

Sad how we have to ask fellow citizens, who work in the government, permission to do something that is completely unconstitutional.
