Having a hard time deciding on a brace for my first pistol build any help would be great. Here is what I have so far:

Upper Receiver: Billet A3
Barrel Length: 7.5"
Barrel Finish: Stainless Steel
Twist Rate: 1:7
Chamber: .223/5.56 Wylde
M4 Feed Ramps: Yes
Muzzle Device: Linear Compensator
Gas System Length: Pistol
Gas Block Diameter: 0.750"
Handguard: Pistol Length, Free Floating
Bolt Carrier Assembly Included: Yes
Charging Handle: Extended Tactical Latch

Picked up a polymer lower but after research don't think I'll go polymer on a pistol build, picked up a Anderson Lower...

Here are a few that I have been looking at:
SB Tactical PDW braceSB
Shockwave blade (appears to be the most popular and one of the cheapest)
Strike Industries Viper PDW stock

Any suggestions for a nice brace would help.
Thanks guys and gals,

SBM4 Brace


Just put one of these on my AR15 Pistol. It fits very tight on mine so it stays put. especially nice cheek weld.

The strike industries is a stock, not a brace, so steer clear of that or your in NFA waters.


I am working on a 9mm build and just picked up a Gear Head Works Tailhook.


I'm loving it! little hard to find right now though.  I  got the gen 1, but the gen 2 is looking sweet as well.

I would dare these manufactures to make one of these that does not end up looking like and capable of performing like a butt stock and see how many they sell. I can't help but shake my head at this game of making a pistol brace to fool the feds.
