SB Tactical’s Newest Brace: The SBA4 – SHOT Show 2019

New for 2019 is the SB Tactical SBA4 Pistol Stabilizing Brace.

While a lot of people may not recognize it, one company that has done incredible things for the gun industry in the last number of years has been SB Tactical.  If you aren’t familiar with them, they make pistol stabilizing braces.  And whether you use a pistol brace or not, you’ve felt the impact in the market.  Not a company around today doesn’t offer some sort of pistol version of their AR, AK or most any other platform.  SB Tactical is behind it all.

What people may not appreciate is that SB Tactical got the ATF to make a ruling on pistol stabilizing braces.  Eventually, the ATF tried to change their mind but SB Tactical went to bat.  Pistol braces are now solidly in compliance with the ATF.

SB Tactical makes braces for a lot of the top firearm manufacturers.

They originally introduced the pistol brace through SIG Sauer and later separated becoming the SB Tactical we know today.  They have made a huge number of arm braces for all kinds of different weapon systems.  Whether it is your standard AR-15 or AK, or even proprietary designs for companies like Q and SIG Sauer.

SB Tactical works closely with a number of companies to make firearm-specific stabilizing braces.

SB Tactical continues to innovate within the space to bring more and more products to market.  Their newest offering is their SBA4 Brace.


  • Minimalist Design
  • Enhanced cheek weld ergonomics
  • 5-position adjustable
  • 7075 mil-spec carbine receiver extension
  • Integral, ambidextrous QD sling socket
  • Made in the USA
  • MSRP: $169.99

One of the things people have requested is a way to adjust, or telescope, the brace section.  Seeing as how not everyone is built the same, SB Tactical came through when they introduced the SBA3 Brace.  It adjusts similar to the way a carbine stock adjusts, moving between five positions on their mil-spec carbine receiver extension.

The new SBA4 is a cross between the SBA3 and the SBM4.

Their newest offering, the SBA4 adds to the SBA3’s design by creating a larger surface in order to establish a cheek weld.  In design elements, it is a cross between the SBA3 and the SBM4.  The SBA3 telescopes and the SBM4 has the wider extended cheek area.  All that comes together in their newest SBA4 Pistol Stabilizing Brace.

The SBA4 will be available by mid-2019.  Find out more information at SB Tactical.

A lot of people have been waiting for the SBA4, and it is finally here.

      I agree with the bump stock, I do not want one, but it should not be banned.
      Donnie had two years to pass the “Hearing Protection Act” and the same two years to pass the “National Reciprocity, Act” and not only failed, but never brought it up to the floor in Congress….. Trump took the NRA money and turned his back on us A2 people. If the facts come out, that the NRA took Russian money and gave it to the ANTI-2A Trump administration,,,,,,they will lose me.

    Soo, how long until President Trump decides these are evil, and Bans these, too?? But, the article says these are on solid ground with the BATFE…

    So were BumpStocks, with 2 separate opinions, but somehow this admin decided to ban them through Executive Order!!!

    42 days until March 21, then possession makes FELON!!!

    Might not matter, Trump is also endorsing ERPOs, and believes Due Process need not apply to gun owners….

    AND, he has nominated Barr to Attorney General, who is definitely anti-2A!!!!

    Can we stop with the stupid ornamental magwells already?

    • T February 6, 2019, 10:08 am

      Agree. This is my weapon, there are many like it, but this one is mine…

      Like a tatoo, I guess?

    • johnnyraygun February 6, 2019, 11:36 am

      Could not agree more. The big glaring issue, firearms are dangerous and deadly. To put some cartoon design just hurts our cause and makes them more paint gun than a lethal weapon. Leave the absurd to cartoonist and knife makers.
