SIG’s Slick Side Folder: The Pivoting Contour Brace

SIG Sauer has a new side-folding brace that sets the standard for lightweight and functionality. The Pivoting Contour Brace (PCB) comes with variants for the SIG MCX and SIG MPX rifles and is available separately as an accessory.

SIG was the company that brought us the first arm brace and negotiated the regulatory hurdles with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The concept has changed the industry for the better and we have SIG to thank.

In spite of their harmless utility, pistol braces have become a focus of the relentless anti-gun movement. Among other features such as flash hiders, pistol braces have been targeted in Feinstein’s latest Assault Weapons Ban.

SIG has done their homework on this design. The PCB has a minimalist I-Beam construction with 360-degrees of pivoting arm articulation. It can fold flat for easy storage while leaving the controls easily accessible. The brace is available in black and coyote tan.

“This new pivoting contour brace has been reengineered to increase functionality” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales,

“The minimalist design of the brace makes it lightweight, and by design there are more points of contact between the brace and the user increasing control for better accuracy, while the 360-degree pivoting arm only enhances the overall user-friendliness of the brace to enhance the shooting experience,” Taylor added. 

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the SIG SAUER PCB will be donated to the Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) Learn to Shoot Again Program.

With an MSRP of $199.00, the PCB is a little higher than some of the competition, but if it turns out to be as good as advertised one can argue that it’s worth the price of admission.  Of course, we’ll have to get one in and test it out.  Stay tuned.

    SIG was not the company that brought us the first arm brace, it was SB Tactical. Furthermore it was SB Tactical that did all the work with the ATF which resulted in the ATF clarification letter dated 2017.
